I just thought i would make a post giving a little review of the Soltek LED lights.

Well, you guys have all seen them, but nobody seems to have any shots of them. So I picked some up to test out and to show you guys whats up in the LED lighting world.
As you can see these lights are built very well. The casing is made from durable aluminum and the LEDs are epoxyed to keep them sealed from water. These lights are 50w each which puts them 5watts under what most aux lighting runs at (standard is 55w) So these lights will also draw less amps from your car helping out already low amp alternators.

Front shot


Cooling fins to keep the 18LEDs cool


Picture of a Hella FF1000 and the Soltek LED light. Notice how much more white and brighter the LED light is.


With both LED lights on, you get a very nice light spread. Since the lights are rectangle in size they give a nice rectangle light pattern. Where as a normal light has a circle pattern this LED pattern is very usable. The pattern of these lights are Driving, Soltek also has different patterns available, (Spot, Driving, Cornering and Flod/Work) These patterns are available via different covers for the lights, so you don’t have to keep buying different lights to get the different patterns. The extra lenses covers retail for around 20 bucks a set ($9.95 each). At a 100yds you have a very large pattern that is bright white. These are some of the brightest lights I have ever had on my car (have had hella 500s, FF500s, FF1000s, 550s)


The same exposure but this time with Just the FF500 lights. Notice that you get a very narrow beam pattern. The effective range is also not as far as the LEDs
Now, some of you guys are thinking that sure these lights kicks ass, they should for the price. But they are worth every penny. I think just one of these lights is better than all four of my lights on my old setup (2 FF100s, 2FF500s) I am tempted to just run one LED light and get rid of all the others as I just don’t see a reason to keep them. These lights are also perfect for a supplement High beam light. Where as HIDs don’t like to be turned on and off quickly the LEDs have no issues with this at all. When you turn these on there is no warm up, it’s just on or off.

and no, my bar is not bending from the weight of these lights. :D I put a slight bend in the end bars so the FF1000s that i had on there sat just a little lower to help air flow into the radiator.

you sure posted this same thread all over the internet. They better be good for $450 clams.
