Are M3 Halogen Size Led Headlight Bulbs worth buying? (Test & Review 2019)

264 Published by Ava 04 04,2019

M3 led headlight was launched on March 2019. it is a high performance led headlight with High-speed turbo fan, the high beam led bulb is housing with 12 pcs Lumileds ZES chip and low beam led bulb has 6 pcs of Lumileds ZES chip. The maximum light output of M3 led bulb can reach 5000 lumens (a set of led headlight). Its appearance is close to the halogen bulb.

M3 series bulb is housing on a 1.5mm extremely thin copper PCB board with opposing LEDs on two sides that decrease the distance between two side LEDs. With this special design, it can make the thickness of the light source close to the tungsten filament of the halogen bulb. Emitting ECE/DOT standard light beam pattern in reflector headlight housing without any dark spot.

The M3 headlight equipped with a high-speed cooling system, which can make the bulb body in a stable condition with a 1300 rpm fans. It is easy to install as well, that would not influence to mount the dust cover. The bulb of M3 used 6003 Aluminium alloy with a decent surface treatment that creates a good texture for the bulb. Its operating power can up to 25W, produce 2500 lumen each bulb.


Next, we test the M3 led headlight performance, the reviews are shown as below:

LED Bulb Operating Temperature Testing :

Testing the led bulb with 13.5-volt power supplied for 30 minutes and the room temperature is about 21-22 degrees, the led bulb surface temperature is as below:

The temperature of bulb body at the beginning | The temperature of bulb body after 30 minutes

The operating temperature of led chips keep at about 110 degrees, the junction temperature of the Lumileds ZES chip is 145 degrees, the operating temperature of this bulb is set in a reasonable range.


Light Beam pattern testing:

 

We test in 3.5 meters from the wall. And take the photo by SLR camera in setting ISO: 100, Shutter Speed: 10, Exposure: 10. Get the beam pattern image as below.
Install M3-H7 led headlights in factory headlight housing,

Halogen H7 low beam | M3 H7 low beam

Halogen H7 high beam | M3 H7 high beam

 

 

M3 H7 installed with a reflector, its brightness of the center can reach 3359 LUX while the maximum center brightness of halogen is 2823 LUX.

 


Summarize:

The brightness of M3 headlight would be out of your expectation if you are chasing for higher brightness and convenience installation. This series item performs a plat cutoff without dark spot, its good light distribution is suitable for your replacement. With a similar halogen size, that would satisfy your requirement for convenient installation and an elegant appearance.

What is a good headlight beam pattern? (DOT/ECE)

Standards for Headlight Beam Patterns -- edited by Kevin   This article will discuss headlight beam patterns and the standards that agencies such as ECE/DOT require. The following points will be addressed to help gain a better understanding:   1. What does the original ECE front headlight testing graphic look like? 2. The original ECE front headlight testing graphic combine with driveway image 3. Some testing points that need to pay more attention to 4. Other standards used in other countries and areas (SAE/ADR)     How do we define a safe and effective headlight beam pattern and what are the standards it has to meet? Most people would say they want a headlight that is super bright, covers a large area in front of the vehicle and has uniform illumination with no dark spots. But can this be achieved and still meet the standards set forth by ECE (E-mark) or SAE (DOT)?   The short answer is, YES! The keys to optimal performance are to be sure the light is focu...

2018 M2 Compact & Ultra Bright LED Headlights Review Guide

This is our new M2 LED Headlight series launched on November 2018. Its single beam housing with 2 pics CR CSP led chip while the dual beam housing with 4 pics leds, M2 led headlight kit can reach 6000 Lumen output. With an advanced dynamic design, high counterclockwise and low vibration of the fan, the M2 LED Headlight to work out the issue of noise in a safe situation.   The bulb of M2 used 6003 Aluminum alloy, and bulb body is integrated by the hot-pressing process for better heat dissipation. And it is using double layer copper PCB which provides a good heat dissipation. Because of the high adhesion between the double layer copper PCB, it is beneficial to the heat dissipation and extends the lifespan of LEDs, the LED chips would not burn out easily.     All in one style, the length of the bulb body is 77mm, the width of the heat sink is 31mm. The compact bulb body is close to the halogen bulb size LED Bulb Operating Temperature Testing Testing the led bulb with 1...

Fiberglass PCB vs. Aluminum PCB vs. Copper base PCB vs. Ceramic PCB

For the PCB boards now in application to LED headlight, there are mainly four kind of materials, Fiberglass(FR4) PCB, Aluminum PCB, Copper PCB and Ceramic PCB. It is a good deal to understand the distinctions for these four types PCB. Which PCB you choose depends on the circuit design construction of the headlight. FR4 vs. Aluminum PCB   Price Comparison In the cost comparison, the Aluminum PCB is more expensive than FR4, as well as more superior in performance.   Thermally conductivity Aluminum PCB has a great capability of thermal conductivity than FR4 which makes them play an important role in LED lighting technology.   Technology practices The thermal conductivity dielectric material of Aluminum PCB is a thermal bridge that connects the components and metal plate. It can transfer heat to the heat sink through the core automatically. An Aluminum backed PCB is assembled with aluminum backing, highly thermally conductive dielectric layer and the standard circuit lay...

Genuine G7 PK Fake G7 – How to Reduce Product Cost?

I think many people will meet this situation while shopping two similar products but with a great difference on prices.it is hard to make a choice for you, because you want to purchase the cheaper one but also worry about its quality as well. It is saying that you get what you pay. This is the best description of the current electronic products industry condition in China. Even high-value product like the laptop, or a cheap product like power bank or led light, we can find many similar products from different manufacturers. How can we identify which one is good and which one is in bad quality? We should take the product shell apart to see what kind of electronic component they used inside. In this way, we can understand the reasons why the suppliers always say that the price they offered is the best price and couldn’t be low, while another supplier can casually offer you a price cheaper 5USD, or 10USD.
