VisionX Solstice 6100/4100 Output

Well seeing as how it's next to impossible to get actual feedback from someone on anything other than that little 2-incher, I figured I'd be the test-dummy.
DISCLAIMER: I do not work for VisionX or any third-party vendor; so if it sucks, I'll tell you. I'm not rich, I assure you. I also suck at taking pics, so I don't need your damn lip, hippie!

Here's the setup on my lights. FYI, my headlights have an HID conversion on them...


These pics were taken about an hour ago, out here in the eastern NC woods/swamp where they are building a new sub-division. Here's the baseline for you. Only the headlights on LOW-beam. The circled reflection is the safety-triangle on the back of a CAT grader machine to smooth the dirt before laying asphalt. It is approximately 100 yards away from the front bumper of the Jeep...


This pic is with the headlights on HIGH-beam...


This pic is with the bumper-mounted VisionX Solstice 6100s...


This pic is with the headlights on LOW-beam and the bumper-mounted VisionX Solstice 6100s...


This pic is with the headlights on HIGH-beam and the bumper-mounted VisionX Solstice 6100s...

The VisionX lights replaced a pair of Lightforce 170s with an HID conversion. There was nothing wrong with the Lightforces. They are a solidly-constructed, reliable, exceptional piece of gear. However, in my PERSONAL OPINION, the only thing I didn't like about them was the 10-15 second "warm-up" time that they needed to be at their maximum light output. These new lights require no time whatsoever. Flip the swith, and they're on. The light output on these is phenomenal! (I temporarily blinded my GySgt today at work because he didn't think they could be that bright... and looked directly into them from about 4 feet away!) The electrical draw is next to nothing. They also didn't get as hot as I was expecting. I could even leave my hand on the lights for a few seconds before it became uncomfortably warm. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Awesome lights. Then again, for the price they should be! I'd like some but just can't justify the price right now.

Very nice pictures ChrisW. You did an excellent job with an unbiased opinion. Thanks for picking up the lights and doing the write up.

I blinded myself with one solo light. These are five times brighter.
