Pick up your set of NX LED Headlights on JDMASTAR.COM and use code JDM ASTAR to save on your purchase.

The NX series headlights come from our heat sink lineup and are equipped with Samsung 2nd generation CSP chips.  Single beam lamps use 8 CSP chips whereas dual beam lamps provide a total of 16 chips or 2 sets of 8 diodes to provide a function for the high beam application.

Quality guaranteed with Samsung 2nd Gen. CSP chips on our NX Series Headlights.

Whether your NX headlights are dual or single beam lamps, the intensity provided is rated at 5,000 lumens per bulb.  Increase the intensity by 3’x the rated lumens of a brand new premium halogen bulb.  If your halogen bulbs have already experienced some wear and depreciated, the intensity difference will be night and day with NX Series!

 

 

They also offer an all-in-one design for a simple installation without any concern of having to mount or secure a driver harness.  Since they use heat sinks, no concern for any mechanical fan noise.

 

Best Performance & Results All Around

You need to upgrade your headlights to something better but do not want to settle for anything but the best.  You want the best performance but also need maximum efficiency.  You want the highest quality but also need durability.  If you agree to any of these, the best choice for you are our 8th Generation Headlights.  These are our flagship model headlights and currently have a pending US Patent.

JDM Astar’s flagship model headlights are…the 8th Gen Headlights!

The 8th Generation headlights are equipped with 8 Luxeon ZES chips from Lumileds.  This manufacture is a subdivision brand by Phillips that develop, produce, and design light emitting diodes.  They supply a percentage of the worlds demand for lighting and light sources not just in the automotive industry.  This is a brand you can trust and is also a brand we utilize on our products as we are confident the quality offered by Lumileds will ensure our clients satisfaction and loyalty.

The 8th Generation headlights are not our brightest option but definitely one of the brightest and much more powerful over the factory lamps.  They are rated at 4,000 lm per bulb whether the headlight is a single beam or dual beam headlamp.  They offer adjust-ability to achieve results you need in any vehicle housing whether domestic, Asian, or European.  With an external driver harness, you can expect highest efficiency known to LED tech to be maintained for over 30,000 hours of operating life span.  That equates to over 5 years depending on often you drive at night!  The heat sink can also be reversed for even more customization.

If any investment is to be made on your vehicles lighting, the 8th Generation Headlights are most certainly the best choice.  Like any investment made, your profit or return will be your satisfaction, confidence in using our 8th Gen LED headlights in your car, long life expectancy, lighting results you want and need, and security for you and your passengers safety while operating your vehicle at night.

Best Bang for the Buck!

T1 Headlights are exclusively available on Amazon.com. Search ASIN # B07FDS39X5.

Working on a budget when you have a car build or just need to upgrade your headlights is now possible with our T Series Headlights.  We understand having a budget can delay the time before you obtain your car parts, or can prevent you from getting your preferred choice that does what you want.

With our T series headlights, you have options!  Our T1 headlights are one of the most powerful headlights that combats the NX series.  With the same 5,000 lumen intensity rating as the NX headlights, the T1’s will save you money so that you can invest on other lamps on the car such as your interior or even your high beams.  The high velocity fan provides maximum cooling for the entire bulb including the custom diodes we use on this lamp.

T2 headlights are available for Amazon buyers and Amazon Prime members. Look up Amazon ASIN B07MKZFBZY.

For an additional $20 USD, you can also kick it up a notch to our T2 headlights.  These are an upgrade to the T1’s and will push intensity even further with a rating of 6,000lm per bulb.  The light sources are designed and manufactured by Edison and are there DF-4BS series diodes which means maximum thermal resistance, high lumen-to-wattage ratio, and maximum output!

They also feature an external driver to prevent the added heat from the higher intensity from affecting the driver circuit.  This combined with the density of the 6063 aluminum body makes this one of our most reliable fan style LED headlight replacement option.

T2 series headlights provide the most compact fan allowing it to fit in the most limited housing areas.

Innovating Heat Sink Cooling with 6S Series Headlights

We are at it again with yet another innovative design for aftermarket LED headlamp bulbs.  JDM ASTAR has introduced another heat sink type headlight to join others like our 4S and 8th Generation Headlights.

DSC_6506.JPG

The 6S headlights use a redesigned heat sink that offers improved and larger surface area for heat dissipation.  Rather than using standard aluminum, the 6S are built with the same aviation grade 6063 aluminum that are found on a variety of our existing LEDs today such as our 8th Generation Headlights or smaller bulbs like 3030 14-SMD Series LED bulbs.  This means that there will be a substantial increase in how much heat is radiated from the light source, through the aluminum body, and exhaust through the heat sink in order make cooling even faster.

So what is all the hype about with this new cooling fin heat sink that reminds us all of chopper ready to take off?

DSC_6502

Well, it’s not the traditional bulky unit that earlier designs offer.  We have been there before and have seen many cases where a fan or heat sink is a bit too wide to fit, or there is not enough depth to provide fitment for the cooling mechanism thus creating an even bigger problem.  Aside from the labor involved, you will also have to ship something back and we all know how much of a drag this can be.  When we buy stuff off Amazon, it better be right!

DSC_6499.JPG

The 6S headlights offer a bendable/mold-able heat sink.  The cooling fins use 6063 aluminum and are designed to be adjusted to cater to the clearance on your vehicles housing or area as well as allow fitment if the LED lamp.  The cooling fins will get extend to get air flow to improve radiation of heat.  This means the diodes will be able operate for a longer period of time, as well as provide thousands and thousands of hours of operating life.  So, if the 8th Gens were simply too big to fit, no worries, the 6S headlights still got you covered!

Aside from cooling, the 6S Headlights also offer high thermal resistant diodes that are also found on our existing designs.  The lamp uses a total of 8 CSP (Chip Scale Package) surface mount diodes with 4 on each side.  For those dual headlamp bulbs, they will use 16 CSP diodes with 8 being dedicated to the low beam function and 8 for the high beams.  With CSP diodes as the light source, you can expect things to be lit!  That is an understatement.  Combined with an internal smart driven IC module, the 6S Headlights provide a whomping 4000 lumens per bulb competing with that of our 8th Gens!

But wait…there is still more!

light pattern 4

Ability to adjust an aftermarket LED headlight today is almost a certain need with how headlamp housings are being manufactured on vehicle housings today especially with aftermarket!  Some include projectors and others are reflectors.  The 6S headlights, once again, have got you covered!  By loosening the set screw that is by the collar of the LED lamp, it will allow you to free up the bulb and clock the direction of the light sources.  Focus, light concentration, and beam pattern will all be able to adjust through rotation of the bulb.  Once you hit that ‘sweet spot’, mark your LEDs and repeat the same steps with the opposite side and voila!  You will have a beam pattern that is the same, if not similar, to the factory halogen headlamp bulbs.  If you are not sure which way to direct the diodes, check out our blog article titled “Which way should the chips face on your LED headlights?” There you will get all details needed on the suggested bulb orientation.

So if you ever dealt with the headache of fitting the bulky fan or a large heat sink of your new aftermarket LEDs, consider the 6S headlights so you can bend that heat sink around and allow the bulb to easily adapt and avoid any modifications to the housing.

 

With the many fan style LED headlights cluttering up marketplaces like Amazon, eBay(and now Wish!), it is surprise if the 6S headlights sit right up next to the 8th Gens as one of the leading designs in aftermarket LED lighting auto industry!
