Good to see LEDs up against HID's. The arc from the HID has incredible penetrating power, but LED's have come a long way since the first LED headlights with all the lenses and individual chips.
We supply electrical wiring for municipal vehicles and when they switched over to LED headlamps, they discovered a bad thing; the LEDs don't melt the ice and snow collecting on the lamps because of reduced heat. The halogen lights did a good job of melting the ice. So, it looks like LEDs will work but heaters are needed to prevent ice buildup in bad weather.
We have found the same thing after changing to LED traffic signal lights.
There are no heaters installed, so we must go out once in a while and scrape the wet sticky snow off the lights using a long pole with a wide putty knife, while not getting hit by stupid people going waaaaay too fast for the conditions.
I don't know what their hurry is, Walmart is open all night. Lol
