How long are these lights built to last?

While all our lights come with a five year warranty, they are built to last much longer with an LED lifespan of at least 50,000 hours.

How tough are these lights?

From material selection right through to production and a vigorous test program, these lights have been built to be the toughest lights on the market. Solid State light sources (LED) are inherently robust (no filament to break), while our lamps also have fully Aluminium enclosures and hard-coated Polycarbonate lenses. Our lamps are also sealed to IP67 water-tightness level so that whatever you put your vehicle through, you can rest assured these lights wont let you down.

How bright are these lights?

We are the choice for motorsport teams around the world. Our lights have been independently verified as being brighter than the market leading LED lights from the USA. Our vacuum metalized reflector system has a higher reflectivity than chromed / non chromed reflectors used by our competition, and this translates to more light on the road.
We also use some of the most advanced LED chips and driver circuitry on the market, combined with automotive spec. reflector systems to deliver extreme luminosity on the road. A single ST-4 / RS-4 lamp puts out around 30% – 50% more light than the market leading motorsport HID lamps. The hybrid beam pattern gives excellent range and a comfortable spread of light closer to the vehicle.

What is the difference between lumens and lux?

There is a clear distinction between lumens and lux when using as a unit of light measurement. Lumens can be defined as the measurement of how bright a bulb or a light source is. Whether you are 1 meter away or 100 meters away from a light source it is still emitting the same amount of lumens. On the other hand, lux is the measure of the intensity of the light hitting a surface at a given distance. Our recommendation is that you review the product photometric diagram and consider the spread of light that you want. Overall, lux is a good measurement for determining and comparing the brightness of a beam.

How are the lights wired in to the vehicle system?

All lights come with a full wiring diagram and instruction manual. Click here to download a pdf of our fitting instructions. You can also see below a short video explaining how to attach and wire in the spot lights to your vehicle, featuring a CanBus system:

Is the lens really 'unbreakable'?

The lens on our products is 3mm thick Lexan GE Polycarbonate with a hardcoat lacquer, they are fully stone chip and impact resistant. We are so confident in the strength of our lenses that they come with a full guarantee - if they crack or break (unless caused by intentional duress) we'll offer a replacement free of charge. In the event of a vehicle collision or other substantial heavy impact causing lamp/lens damage, we are happy to supply a replacement lens and we also offer a lens replacement service for a small charge. Spare fascia parts are also available. See our terms for details.

Are spare parts available?

Yes. We like to do things differently at Lazer. If you’re using the lamp for off-roading, we know that the lamps can sustain some pretty hefty impacts during competition driving. The front fascia of the lamp is fully serviceable/replaceable without having to break the lens seal (i.e. water-tightness). We are happy to supply replacement parts to our customers, see our terms for details.

Are the lights road legal, and are there any special mounting requirements?

Yes, our ST, RS and the many of our Triple-R range of lights are fully ECE approved for road use (E11 marked) - please visit the relevant product page for details. Lamps must be mounted in such a way to comply with local laws, please click here for details on the mounting requirements.

Are the lights fully waterproof?

Yes, our lights are completely watertight when submerged from cold and also when submerged hot (causing negative pressure). Every lamp leaving our UK manufacturing facility is pressure tested to confirm seal integrity, backed up by our five year warranty.

Can the products be jet washed, including the Triple-R lamps with the Charged Air Cooling system?

Yes. We use an uprated silicon coated gore tex breather to permit high pressure jet washing in to the charge cooling system, without risk of water ingress to the lamp.

 Are the LEDs used in the T- Range brighter than the LEDs used in the ST and RS Range, and how do these compare to the Triple-R?

No. All our 'Hybrid Optic' lights use the same LED chips and reflector system, so two ST-8 lamps is equivalent in performance to a single T-16. The only difference between the ST-Range and the T-Range is that we have certified the ST-Range to be road legal, whereas the T-Range has not been certified for road use. The Triple-R lights use a different range of LED chips which assist in achieving an unparalleled level of long-range illumination.
