how does this light compair to the AE Xenide 25W? i am looking for a hid light, but want quality with it. I am in law enforcement and if i chose to pull out the HID, i want to know that if by some reason it were to be dropped, it would still work... or am i just dreaming on that point...
I have an elektrolumens 3 cree mce led's in a 4/c mag host. supposed to be 2100 lumens. it is very bright, but dosn't really throw. more of a flood light. those of you that have both, the oracle and the ae xenide 25, in your opinion which one is brighter, throws more and will survive my job better.
The Xenide is a great light with outstanding run-time. Although the 35W Oracle is producing more lumens the AE will probably match it in throw. As for the reliability of the Oracle. It's anyone's guess, which is the case with most lights. There are no standards with which to measure and until some independent tests 5-10 of each model to destruction, there just isn't any real world data. AE as been around for a while and has a good reputation. The Oracle is new, half the price, and most owners seem to like it.
Either of these HID's will smoke your 3 x MCE in the throw department. Hope that helps.
