LUX H8 V4 Angel Eyes

Went ahead and just ordered the new LUX H8 V4. They claim to be brighter than V3 versions, and well, the color adjustability might be interesting. Typically though I'd just want to dial in the color so as to match the Xenon bulb output.

Anyhow... do the V3 installation instructions apply to these new V4 kits? The LUX page says installation instructions are "Coming Soon". Well I think they need to "Come Sooner" if they're already shipping.

Well increased brightness claims are dubious. And I suspect the color temp of the V3 is about where I'll dial in the V4 anyhow.

Based on this pic anyhow:

Same here man. I even asked in the Lux thread if v4s were coming out anytime soon and was told no. Now our v3s are outdated.

Same, I've had my V3 since late December. Making the source brighter will only emphasize how weak the outer ring looks.

The V3 is literally perfect IMO. No amount of work on the stock headlight design can fix the way the outer ring looks. In that pic above, by making the temp higher 8-12, you see what I'm saying.

This is a great option for those wanting to upgrade from the very weak plug and play solutions out there.

I'm going to keep my V3's until they die and then I'm going with the Orion V4 rings

Issues with the headlight assembly no longer being water tight after installing Orion rings swayed me towards the LUX.

Same, because its easy to DIY. I would never trust myself to get the headlight open and closed up perfectly. However, I've never heard of anyone having issues of that nature when giving them to OSS.

I've heard of a few instances were OSS's would leak and ruin the headlight.

The install is the same as he V3 and as well the power supply can be tucked away inside the headlight just the same. This will ensure that the headlight stays water right.

We are working to get comparison pictures. We did a photoshoot one night however it was too dark to see anything clearly

So LUX claims 800 lumens for V3. How many lumens for V4? Didn't see it mentioned on their website.

It is closer to 1000 lumen now. The reason we dont list this is because so many knock offs make false claims about their light output so its hard to compete with lies.
