Golight Inc.offers the High Intensity Discharge (HID) Stryker, giving users tremendous intensity with minimal strain on the vehicle's electrical system. By comparison, the HID upgrade more than triples the light output of its incandescent counterpart. Renowned for its beam precision, Golight has been able to generate a peak beam intensity of 650,000 candela by incorporating an internally ballasted HID bulb and updated reflector into the Stryker remote control light housing and achieve a maximum beam distance of beyond one mile. Besides increased intensity, the HID system emits light at significantly greater color temperature — 4100 k — which creates a whiter light, comparable to daylight. The HID technology utilized in the new Stryker model generates almost twice as many lumens per watt as a traditional halogen light source. Therefore, the HID Stryker can generate a tremendous light profile while reducing the strain on the power source. After an initial startup surge, the HID Stryker requires only 3.5 amps for continuous operation. The unit reaches peak output in less than 10 seconds and reaches 70% capacity in just 4 seconds. The filament free bulb also has durability advantages, with a rated life of greater than 3000 hours. The HID Stryker is perfect for anyone seeking Golight's revolutionary remote technology and the utmost in lighting intensity. Factory installed upgrade kits are available for use with existing Stryker models as well.
