A guide for buying the latest LED light bar technology
LED bar lights or led driving light bars are commonly mounted onto a bull bar, on a roof rack or just about anywhere that you can mount a bracket.
What separates high quality LED bar lights from cheaper alternatives?
- High performance manufacturers only use genuine CREE LED chips to ensure maximum light output. CREE technology offers the best colour output and maximum life span. When it comes to the production of LEDs, there are always deviations due to the production process: When a batch of LEDs are manufactured they are individually tested for luminous flux and placed into groups. Cheaper LED Driving light manufacturers use low-priced, unpredictable chips that often fail under high usage. Great Whites are proud to use only the highest quality LED chips on the market backed by a market-leading warranty.
- The reflectors in a bar light ensure even light distribution and maximum beam throw distance. Quite often cheap knock-off LED lights attempt to copy the design of Great Whites technology however lifespan and performance remains unmatched. Great Whites use iris reflector lenses for distance while elliptical optics provide body to the beam pattern.
- Materials – The quality of materials and how they are assembled will always be noticeable. Cheap copies often use cheap materials to keep costs down. Great Whites only use ultra-tough Marine grade aluminium housing, built to go the distance. Covered by a polycarbonate lens, Great Whites are ready to take on the elements. Light bars are often fitted in areas with constant exposure to wind, rain, dust and vibration meaning IP68/69K waterproofing and dust proof rating is essential.
- Warranty – Cheap inferior brands often only have 12 month warranties. The light output of Great Whites Attack driving lights is warranted for 3 years or 50,000 hours, whichever occurs first.
Best size LED light bar for off road driving:
It all depends on the area you have to mount the light. If you are solely relying on one single LED light bar we recommend a 15 LED Attack Light bar. The size to output of the bar light has an impressive beam throw of 452 meters at 1 lux.
