NARVA develops “super powerful” high beam LEDs
NARVA has developed purpose-built LED globes that provide a super powerful output, for high beam use only. The globes offer light output of up to 12,000 lumens (per pair), with a light beam reaching 300 metres at 1 lux, performance similar to that of a 14inch 5W LED light bar but without the inconvenience of installing a light bar with wiring, switches or a mountable bull/nudge bar.
The output is produced in a crisp white 6000K and creates up to two times the beam width of standard halogen globes.
With up to 25 times more life than a standard globe and extreme durability, thanks to no filament or moving parts, NARVA said the globes will be a ‘fit and forget option’ for suitable vehicles. Additionally, drivers may can retain standard halogen globes in their low beam lights if desired.
A removable locator ring, external driver and 360° adjustable globe orientation (for H7 fitment) allow the globes to be easily retrofitted at home. NARVA’s high beam LED globe kits (as a pair) are available in HB3, H7, H8/9/11 fitments.
NARVA has also released its Gen III Performance LED headlight conversion kits, which offer significant upgrades over previous Gen II Performance LED globes.
According to in-house testing, NARVA said the latest release produces up to 70 per cent more effective lumens and 30 per cent more low beam distance, as well as a broader high beam output compared to its predecessor. When compared to standard halogen globes fitted to many vehicles, this represents up to 300 per cent brighter output and a light beam that’s 60 metres longer (low beam).
In addition to performance improvements, Gen III LED globes feature updated circuitry and vibration resistance to make them more reliable. Compared to halogen globes, NARVA said owners should expect 30 times longer life from the latest kits.
According to NARVA, Gen III globes will cost the same as previous Gen II globes. The latest kits are available in H1, H4, HB3, HB4, H7, H8/9/11 and HIR2 fitments.
