It features a  20,800 mAh Lithium-ion battery with a run time of up to 192 hours, and it delivers up to 640 lumens by way of 82 LED bulbs, for hands-free lighting on any task—and it will charge a phone up to ten times.

Vision X Lighting 7″ Vortex LED Headlights

These LED headlights improve lighting distance and coverage while adding more style to your vehicle. The DOT-approved lights feature outstanding lighting output, with a combined 8,420 lumens per kit, plus ultra-bright halo rings that are bound to turn some heads. Available in polished chrome and black chrome.

MSRP: $799 – $849 per pair



Now you can retro-fit your old lights to LED by just swapping out the light bulb. IPF now offers a series of LED bulbs for common headlight- and fog-light applications. These new bulbs offer excellent light distribution, brightness and easy installation for a wide variety  of vehicles.
