Of projector retrofitting performance is here…and it. Is. INSANE. The UPS Power+ projectors are the weapon of choice for headlight junkies who must have the latest and greatest to attack back roads in the pitch black.
Threaded shaft? Nope. Economical? Not at all. The UPS Power Plus Bi-LED + Laser assist headlight projectors are badass for one reason: Maximum output. The excellent low beam is supremely wide, perfectly distributed, and has a very sharp and attractive cutoff line. The standard LED high beam already out-shines most of it’s modern competitors all alone, but it’s that LASER high beam. Oh yes, the laser high beam.
ON THEIR OWN:
We’ve started seeing a couple other standalone laser high beams pop up out there – and we’ve tested them too. The thing is: replacing your existing high beam with a pencil-beam laser isn’t a good idea because you lose the necessary spread that the complete high beam provides. By incorporating the laser-pencil-beam into a more complete system like the Power+ Projectors though, we end up with something that is very effective at leveraging the novel technology the right way.
They feature an industry-standard Morimoto D2S 4.0/5.0 bolt pattern. They have an fully sealed external LED Driver with easy-to-wire inputs for the low and laser high. The mechanical LED high beam is activated with a traditional solenoid wired directly to the back of the projector. These things are compact to make it work in most places, but they’re not so small either – and will require some additional clearance behind for the heat sink fan.
Can rest assured that the raw materials that have gone into this projector justify the high price point. These are OE-grade units and are very impressive in all technical and physical aspects. You guys also need to understand that using unregulated laser-powered light sources for headlamps is still highly illegal, so we only recommend using these in off-road applications!
