Almost daily I see some confusion regarding our Quadratec LED headlights and the differences between them. We have had 4 different variants of these headlights over the past few years:
-Gen I Standard
-Gen I Stealth
-Gen II Standard
-Gen II Stealth
While in our shop today I noticed a Gen I Standard and Gen II Stealth sitting on the table. I decided to take a photo and post it here so everyone can see the aesthetic differences..
Here is the photo - pardon the cell phone quality!
On the LEFT
is our Gen I Standard
light. On the RIGHT
is our Gen II Stealth
Standard vs. Stealth:
The Standard version of our LED headlights has a silver "Q" logo and allen bolt heads. The Stealth version has a blacked out "Q" logo and allen bolt heads. This is the only difference. Output is identical, reflector design is identical.
Gen II Standard:

Gen II Stealth:

Gen I vs. Gen II:
Our Gen I lights are a great light! But, we were looking to improve their functionality even more. We did this by slightly adjusting the reflector for a better beam pattern and cutoff. We also wanted to boost the light output with new LED chips. The Gen II uses one 15 watt LED chip for low. When you go to high beam, four additional 3 watt LED's add to the output.
The LED Low-Beam chip producing 81% MORE Lumens with a 92% INCREASE in Illuminating Distance over Original Equipment (halogen).
The LED Low-Beam chip producing 88% MORE Lumens with a 61% INCREASE in Illuminating Distance over Original Equipment (halogen).
Lumens Output (High Beam):
1198 Lumens vs. 638 from the factory.
Lumens Output (Low Beam):
732 Lumens vs. 404 from the factory.
Illuminating Distance (High Beam):
634 Yards vs. 393 from the factory.
Illuminating Distance (Low Beam):
284 Yards vs. 148 from the factory.
2.15 Amps vs 5.25 from the factory.
30,000 Hours Estimated vs. 320 from the factory.
If anyone has any other questions please let me know.
