I am thinking about replacing the head light.

This one on eBay is cheap and looks nice.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/393307878011?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D3a18e7de8beb4725a3e621a009e58677%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D383910477899%26itm%3D393307878011%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A22d1521e-bbda-11eb-ae62-aa9479a1e172%7Cparentrq%3A99ce6b7d1790a77d14190413fff664e4%7Ciid%3A1

However it says 150W!

Quote:
Specifications:
LED Power: 150W(13pcs*11.5W Cree LED+20WDRL)
Operating Voltage: DC12V
Color Temperature: 6000k - 6500K
Working Life: 50,000+ Hours
Beam: High-Low beam+DRL
Waterproof Rate: IP68
Material: Die-cast aluminum housing, clear hardcoated PC lens
Size: 180mm x 180mm x 82mm / 7.09" x 7.09" x 3.23"


Does it really draw that much or is it just H4 halogen equivalent value?
I thought one of LED advantages is using less power.
I asked the seller but so far no reply.

Does any body have experience with one of these?

One thing that I'd point out with any headlight replacement is that it always needs to be aimed. It's easy enough to do, and it's an important safety feature.

Well, I don't ride at night so no need. LOL
If I end up riding at night, I will do it on the spot.
