Upgrading to aftermarket LED lighting on your car can come off as a bit of a concern for some. It can certainly look intimidating, at first, especially for those that may not have the experience or tools to work on their cars.
When automotive LED made its way into the industry, costs very high and as the market began to grow, competition went up and so many brands or sellers began to offer the actual value of the product they are selling and in order to continue offering such a competitive price, they must take short cuts on quality in order to meet the demand.
This exposed the LED market and eventually gave aftermarket LEDs a bad rep. Nowadays, any time you see an inexpensive LED headlight option on Amazon, you are very cautious about buying yet alone installing them to your vehicle.
JDM Astar is here to help address that concern for those worried about short cuts on quality or risking a bulb failure that leads to hefty repairs on your cars. Short cuts or low quality is just not part of what we do. JDM Astar innovates and we WILL continue to innovate in order to create a foundation of what an aftermarket LED brand should represent.
With competition growing online, we have released a budget-friendly option that will provide quality, reliability, and give you the results you long for and need. JDM has introduced the G4 headlights to their lineup of replacement headlights.
The G4 series headlights sets the foundation for starter LED headlight kits. They offer aviation grade aluminum that increases density and allows more heat to radiate through the body of the bulb thus increasing how fast the diodes cool down. Combined with a high velocity fan that clocks at 1200RPM, you will have an LED lamp that will sustain itself without any concern of overheating the diodes or damaging the driver’s circuit. With a reduced load draw, compared to most low end headlights from foreign or unknown brands, you will achieve higher efficiency thus minimizing how much heat is generated by the diodes.
Now of course, cooling mechanism is one of the factors that ensures your LEDs operate long but another factor is the light source. The light source is key as we have come across many sources that claim to carry genuine diodes from branded manufacturers, but when you check the facts, you realize that they are falsely advertising what they use on there products. If don’t believe us, look up the cheapest LED headlight and check the light source manufactures lineup of diodes they offer. You’d be surprise what you will find with just a little bit of research!
A good example would be claiming your lamp is using CREE chips. CREE is a manufacturer in the US and there costs for parts are not exactly competitive so this would reflect on the cost of the LED lamp you are buying and is typically combined with high grade components such as heat sinks, and Smart IC Drivers(whether external or internal). Remember, if you hear a popular brand is being used as the light source with your LEDs, but costs are a bit too low, then be cautious and possibly steer away from that as you certainly do not want to experience the headache it may cause yet alone the risk of damaging your vehicles housing and/or wiring.
The G4 headlights JDM Astar offers use customized type diodes and is exclusive from JDM Astar. We are proud of this design and we call these diodes AEC chips which are a replication of what we use on our 8th Generation headlights, the Luxeon ZES chips. Think of our AEC chips as a JDM brand version of ZES. High quality, and value that fits the budget! They offer high thermal resistance, low wattage consumption, and high load capacity all with a strong intensity rating of 4,000 lumens per lamp and lux readings averaging 4,150(@ 1 meter).
