Remember back when LED headlights first hit the auto industry? The options were limited. Designs had minor engineering flaws and color options were not there. Most would simply go to HID as the market trend led most manufacturers to improve those type of lamps. And through the magic of time, LED has been improved and here at JDM ASTAR…innovation is what we do!
We are excited to announce a new re-engineered design of our previous LED headlight model, the 4S headlights!
These were a huge hit on our online retail stores such as Amazon and was mainly due to the color options included. Most aftermarket LED headlights will limit you to a single color temperature, with the exception of those extremely abnormal designs which have different colored diodes from those oddly named foreign vendors or brands you see saturating the market.
So what exactly allows the 4S headlights stand out from the competitors and some of our existing designs?
The Light Source
Our redesigned 4S headlights are using a customized light source. Rather than using traditional surface mount diodes, we are using a custom type chip that integrates both Lumileds Luxeon ZES and the very popular CSP (Chip Scale Package) chips. They provide a xenon white light to modernize the look of your ride. We can go into details on other advantages of a customized diodes, however, they are more geared towards a manufacturer as the applications that these light sources can be used for are endless and not just limited to the auto industry. To the consumer, these types of diodes provide stronger thermal resistance allowing the bulb to operate for longer as well as offer a substantially longer lifespan. They can withstand temperatures as high as 180°F! With 20W that are driven by an internal IC driver, the high-efficiency allows the 4S headlights to be a perfect replacement for your factory lighting on headlamps or even fog lamps. Rated at 4,000 lumens per lamp, it is no question as to why this headlight holds its own as well as a place as one the brightest LED replacement lamps with high track rate.
Unlike other brands, its not all about aesthetics such as what you see with more entry-level headlights that have several parts welded into one or epoxied together to form an LED headlight replacement lamp. The 4S also use a passive thermal heat sink which provides even more surface area than the previous generation thus increasing thermal radiation from the light source, through the body, and out of the heat sink! Its like increasing how fast the diodes cool down in temperatures.
The 4S LED headlights are the next ‘cool thing’ to have on your ride. All pun intended!
Using white LED headlights will modernize any vehicle, but what do you do in hazardous driving conditions such as fog, rain or snow or how do you prepare your vehicle for the winter season? Using a white light will definitely look bright but not at all when there is light bouncing off of fog or when light is reflecting from a wet road or even snow fall distorting visibility? With the 4S headlights, you can tackle any road condition! You can run your LEDs in a xenon white 6500K temperature during summer nights, and later apply a warmer temperature to the headlights so you can obtain improved visibility in poor weather conditions or winter season.
You have to remember, warmer temperatures will ALWAYS penetrate darker environments, improve visibility in poor weather conditions and are easier on the human eye. This is why most vehicles come this way from the manufacturer. Most LED headlights today are only available in a white color, warm white, or a yellowish look. But why limit yourself to just that one color? Why not adjust your lamps to your driving conditions so you can take your ride on a road trip without a concern of a rain or fog causing a driving safety problem, or random deer’s that take a leap of faith in front of your vehicle.
With 4S LED headlights, it will include 5 color options so you can have white headlights and keep deer away, or throw them on the fog lights with yellow color films to compliment your LED headlights and combine both to obtain a warmer white temperature for those darker environments or poor weather conditions. The headlights use a thermal-resistant film that acts as a filter which is applied over the glass quartz lens. As light penetrates the filter, the color of the light will change to the desired color or film applied. The headlights include 2 pairs of the following color options; 3,000K for a gold look, 4,300K for a vibrant yellow color, 6,500K for a luxurious xenon white look, and goes up to 8000K and 10,000K for those auto enthusiast that love modifying their rides for projects, off road use, and automotive trade shows.
Intensity, performance, and durability are all a given with any lighting solutions from JDM ASTAR. If you plan on taking long road trips, drive in dark roads or are like us that love to modify and modernize cars then the redesigned 4S headlights are surely an investment worth making for yourself and for your vehicle! Take care of your vehicle and your vehicle will take care of you on the road.
If you ever have any questions about using gold yellow or crystal white headlights or fog lights or simply need some guidance on a slick mod for your fog lights then give the guys at JDM ASTAR a call.
They will guide you in identifying your driving conditions and driving needs to determine if the 4S headlights are the perfect lighting solutions for your vehicle(s).
