LED Light Kit Shopping

Interested to hear what light kits members liked/ didn't like

Installed a set of OEM accessory light mounts (designed for Canadian TRX300) for my '86. Want to install a set of LED spotlights that look similar to the original spotlights, which are very cool but also rare, overpriced battery hogs. I am looking at minimum 800 Lumens b/c I am using original stator--amp draw is a concern for me.

800 lumens is the equivalent to 60 watts or thereabouts. I've had a quick google search and there are online calculators available to work out the current draw. If I worked the calculator correctly 800 lumens draws a 5.8 amps.

Yep I have a 22" I got for $20 and two 6 led pods I got for like $12 and they are on my truck. Brighter then the high beams. Just be careful because so you need to put rtv in. All that is is you pull the Allen screws off the front and put a small bead all the way across the outside rim and maybe where the wire goes in but that's not a big deal. That seals the water out and keeps them from leaking.

I bought a pair of 18W led spots rated at 1260-1800 Lumens. Rated at 3W draw each. I'll see how I like them

Watts divided by volts = amps

If you need to do it on the fly.. lol

LOL I forgot about E=IxR and P=IxE
P (Power)= I (current) x (volts)
Watts/Volts = Amps
18/12 = 1.5A each light thanks
12/1.5 = 8 ohm resistance each

The stock headlamp is rated at 60/55W 5A

Keeping in mind the current draw on the same wire would be additive! So the wiring/fusing has to be rated for at least 3A

Thanks for the help I also found charts comparing lumens with incandescent halogen and LED outputs. Haven't yet found a calculator that will allow choosing amongst them
