    lightforce 240 vs lightforce hid

    Just wanting to know pros and cons to help decide on which one to get for a roof light

  2. #2
    just bought 3 units from an auction, HID is definitely the way to go,clearer and the one I have goes at least twice the distance my lightforce does.
    One other benefit is that they use a lot less power so no more melted plugs.
    The difference is as they say "Chalk and Cheese".

    Only downpoint Ive fount with hid and led is eyes dont flash up in the same way as they do with a standard lamp.
    Work them hard, treat them like heros.

    I've used both in Lightforce 240. If it's 100W, then the battery/lead doesn't know if it's HID or not. So no heating of plug is a fallacy. If plug heats with 8.3 amps flowing through it; you have a plug/connector problem. 100W is 100W!.
    The HID light is very penetrating and I loved the distance, but couldn't live with the time taken to go from 'enraged glowworm' at switch on, to full brilliance. Sent the Blitz 240HID back.
    I'm now looking at the 'rapid start' car units on the 'bay, and building one myself.
