BENCHMARK: Over the course of the last year, the Society of Automotive Engineers, along with Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, have been carving out a new standard that defines what an industry-accepted LED headlight bulb would look like. While they have been hard at work creating what's now known as SAE J3145: Morimoto was hard at work taking notes and, more importantly, developing a product in parallel. While LED bulbs still aren't DOT approved for use in headlights in the states. If and when the time comes, the new 2Stroke 3.0 is already built according to the right recipe. For now, foreign markets and fog light users can enjoy the best LED headlight bulb available today!
SUPERIOR BEAM QUALITY: The advanced PCB technology at the core of the 2Stroke 3.0 sets a new industry benchmark emission surface interval of just 2mm total. The PCB core itself is just 1.0mm thick. The dielectric layer: 300um. The circuit pattern: 140um, and the Osram Oslon HKL351.TE LED chips: 43mm each. Paired with the 1.03 x 4.33mm light-emitting surface area of the LEDs: this adds up to a total cubic volume of 4.46mm. At the end of the day, no LED bulb in the world more closely simulates an incandescent bulb's filament size more accurately than the Morimoto 2Stroke 3.0. For those in the know, this is critical when it comes to proper beam distribution.
OPTIMIZED FOCAL LENGTH: Each size in the 2Stroke 3.0 lineup has been painstakingly optimized for proper output in its designated application. The critical reference distance has been calculated based on the bulb base's geometry and the footprint of the Osram HKL emitter. To ensure consistency, special tools were designed to quality-control each bulb's accuracy as it comes off the production line. Most other LED fog light bulbs on the market use a set it and forget it reference distance across all sizes in the series, which is not the case here.
360 DEGREES OF ROTATION: The 2Stroke 3.0 LED bulbs feature a fully adjustable base. To fully utilize the optical facets in any reflector or projector: The light-emitting diodes must face the 3-o-clock and 9-o-clock positions. Since no single standard exists across different headlight and fog light assemblies, all bulbs in the 2Stroke 3.0 range are fully adjustable. A geared step rotational adjuster mechanism is installed for all bulbs, which twist-to-lock, offering adjustability in 15-degree intervals. An omni-adjustable rotation mechanism is utilized on all bulbs that are press-fit or clip into the housing.
THERMAL MANAGEMENT: Once the bulb is installed, the high-speed fan contained within is completely sealed, making the 2Stroke 3.0 the first actively cooled LED bulb with a fan that's not susceptible to outside elements. Their unique internal circulation cooling system uses a 12,000-rpm cyclone fan to suck cool air into the bulb's body and blow warm air out, back into the housing. On the intake side, cold air is sucked in the past the sidewall of the PCB to exchange heat and is blown out the opposite side of the bulb. This effectively cools the bulb while warming the ambient temperature inside of the housing, increasing resistance to snow/ice buildup on the lens during the winter months. The cooling system on the 2Stroke 3.0 not only does it's job to protect the bulb's longevity but serves up a bad-weather benefit not found elsewhere.
DRL DRIVE: The LED Driver is configured to accept a wide range of input voltage, making them compatible with low voltage daytime running lights commonly found on modern vehicles. When the LED driver detects 6-9V of input: The system logic automatically switches to produce just 30% of the standard output. The low power drive rate of 250mA produces only 460lm per emitter and enables the 2Stroke 3.0 to produce a suitably low output volume as a daytime running light. In this mode, the cooling fan also shuts off to conserve power/lifespan. For vehicles with a PWM-based DRL signal, an inline PWM module that produces a clean DC6V will be required. The driver is completely potted, making it completely weather-proof. Note that the DRL-Drive function is only for use in non-US markets.
ANTI-FLICKERS: If your vehicle has PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) or CanBus, you may experience flickering or shutting off once you install the LED bulbs. This is an easy fix, simply add our Anti-Flicker Cancellers to prevent any issues caused by PWM or CanBus. We recommend them for most newer models from Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Genesis, GMC, Hyundai, Jeep, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Mini Cooper, Porsche, RAM, Volkswagen, and Volvo. You can Contact Us to confirm if your vehicle needs them.
INSTALLATION: LED bulbs are designed to be 100% plug and play with most vehicles. You will remove your stock halogen bulbs, install the LED bulbs using the same method, and plug the cable into your factory harness. If you're also installing Anti-Flickers, you will plug them in between the LED bulbs and your factory harness, then place them inside the headlights or mount them externally. If your vehicle has an adapter that locks the LED bulb into place, you may need adapters that are designed to fit LED bulbs. If the rear of the LED bulb doesn't allow you to reuse your factory housing cap, you may need caps that are designed to give the LED bulbs more room. You can find replacement bulb adapters and housing caps under LED Bulb Accessories.
INCLUDES: You will receive 9006 / 9012 Morimoto 2Stroke 3.0 LED Bulbs.
APPLICATION: LED lights are legal in the USA for Fog Light use only. Not compliant with DOT / FMVSS108 and not street legal in the USA for Headlights. Legal for off-road use in ATV, snowmobile, and off-road racing use. This usage regulation is not unique to our products. All LED lights from all brands, regardless of marketing claims, are prohibited from street use in halogen headlights in the USA.
