this just in ...

Living in the Detroit area does have some advantages, the weather and elevation changes aren’t on this list.

But proximity to the auto industry is and with that said...

A local rider/customer is an engineer at one of the Big 3 and has offered to measure the effective light produced (Lumens) of our MM12AUX lights.

He will be putting in some overtime this weekend doing some “official” testing and will be “un-officialy” (not sure that is a word?) bench testing our light when the opportunity presents itself.

The MM12Aux lights use the Epistar LED and we have conservatively rated the units @ 900-1000 Lumens (comparable to a quality 35W H3 halogen bulb.)

While the LED manufacturer states each 3watt unit is rated at 300 – 510 Lumens and there are 4 units per, math tells us that:

4 LED’s X (300 – 510lm) = 1200 – 2040 lumens per light (that’s a pretty wide spread).

We are patiently awaiting the results and will post them up as soon as we have them .

Thanks,
-Brian
