HALOS on Jeep
 
I have already installed 8K HIDs on my HEADS and FOGS..
And I plan to get some HALOs on it, but would the brightness of the HALOs be weakened by the HID's power consumption?

no...but they seem to disappear with the lights on

Do you put a separate relay on the halos, to avoid more power drain...however, the halos have a small amperage anyway, no?

the flashtech LED halos come with a regulator, which draws power from the battery, and you have to wire a switch, so ya i guess its a relay, and im sure they have a low amperage

moe, you could send a signal to that regulator from a switch or you could tap into some existing circuit like park lamps or fogs. just FYI.

and yes, draw for LED halos is almost non existent. CCFL I have no clue ?

ya i know, i just figured with the green ones, if i get pulled over, i could turn them off just incase, like friday i got pulled over, and i even had a headlight that was out, but i love local cops, i was going 11 over, and since i was polite, he let me go LOL knock on wood right!

i would take a guess and say that CCFL halos draw a higher amperage than the LEDs because the CCFL halos require a power inverter, as it takes 110v to power them, not 12, if im not mistaken

Be cool if you could use a h/o/a (hand off auto) switch, so you could use as DRL's, but have the ability to cut the power if you had colored...I wouldn't mind a white with slight bluish tint and just have them on all the time, unless I choose not to.
