There is much debate about embedded LED headlamp bulbs, especially when they are used with older mirror housings designed for halogen bulbs. Whether you personally think super bright lights are a nuisance or even dangerous thing, we all agree that they are obviously the result of some impressive projects.
This is why we are fascinated to see [techchick] dismantle the “ultra 2 led” transformation of GTR lighting. Obviously, one of the diodes failed, and as part of the warranty replacement process, she was told to make it completely inoperable. It sounds like a tearful dream has come true. If a manufacturer tells us that we need to disassemble something with great prejudice and provide photo evidence to prove that it has been completed, we will be very happy to do it.
The driver himself was filled with potting agent, so she didn’t spend much time there. There is no doubt that some people will be annoyed that [techchick] did not disassemble the small and sharp tools and dig out all the compounds, but we all know very well what happens when driving the LED. What’s really interesting is the light bulb itself.
Like these high output automotive LEDs, the ultra 2 is actively cooled by a small fan, which is actually enclosed in the radiator. After removing the fan and the two-piece radiator, she can access the LED module itself. Here, two PCBs are clamped back-to-back in a hollow copper cavity and led out from the rear of the module. When [techchick] cut into the copper pipe, she said she heard a hiss and thought it was some kind of liquid cooling device. Specifically, we believe that this is a steam chamber for extracting heat from the diode into the radiator at the rear of the module, which illustrates the advanced technology that makes these bulbs possible.
Although laser headlights can be said to be the future of automotive lighting, they will gradually penetrate into us who don’t have super sports cars for a long time. Before that, if used responsibly, these led modifications can inject a little cutting-edge technology into your old beater without damage.
