Test Results:



- My 4300K bulb needs no shimming

- Very little power down after warm-up as compared to stock 8000k bulb. The powerdown is very different than 8000k bulb and much improved...

- 36% more output and better focus with upgraded 4300k bulb (this is after initial surge and warmup) over stock unit... (test using light meter and ceiling bounce)


I believe this will become a standard upgrade for Omni Lights...


Cheers!

What, if any, other mods do you think you might try with this light? Besides changing the bulb I mean. Are you going to sell any of the bulbs? I picked one of these Stanley's up at Wally World and am quite happy with it. A better color bulb might be nice, but to be honest I have gotten used to the color of this bulb. This is a nice light for the price. It really puts out some light too. I was shining the thing around at work last night and just couldn't keep the smile from my face. Of course better output is always nice so what about those bulbs? :D a little more info for noobie please.

Hey Nolan

sorry for late reply, been crazy here...


Stock bulb is really nice but the 4300k puts out more light for sure; the trick is getting the focus just right... Having a run of Lipo packs made for these would be nice but probably would be borderline cost prohibitive unless done in 100's... The bulbs I have are actually a little short for a perfect fit. I have some Mule bulbs landing any day now which may prove easier to deal with. I also have some pre-cut shims arriving in two days that may prove easier to deal with. Depends on if BVH feels doing a bunch of these would be worth it too!

Will update soon...
