Fitting driving lights are one of the best modifications you can make to your vehicle. Better visibility improves safety by giving you more time to react, as well as by reducing fatigue. But how do you choose the best lights for your needs? Not all lights are created equal, and not all performance claims use the same measurements.
Some Lightforce 170mm Handheld Lights with LiFePO4 batteries and some Lightforce LiFePO4 Battery Chargers supplied between January 2014 and May 2018 may include power cords that do not have an earth pin. The missing pin does not pose a risk for users of the battery charger but could result in an electrical shock causing serious injury or death if the power cord is used with another 240V appliance that requires an earth pin.

You may have noticed that the Lightforce Venom LED and Genesis LED, and the new Striker LEDs boast a “CISPR25” rating and “reduced radio interference” and wondered what that means for you. LED lamps on your vehicle run the risk of causing EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference). This is a particularly important safety concern when working in mining or emergency services...
So what is colour temperature? Light colour temperature is represented in the unit of absolute temperature, Kelvin. To put these numbers into perspective, around our homes we typically choose lights with colour temperatures of 2700K (warm incandescent), 3000K (warm white halogen) and 3500K (household fluorescent).
How do you choose the best lights for your 4WD? There’s a lot of misleading information out there! We get it, you aren’t that into the specs and just want a good light for your 4x4. You’ve heard Lightforce are the best, but then you noticed we are talking “lux” when others are talking “lumens”, and the “lumens” number is higher… so what do you do? Lux and lumens are important, but one BIG mistake people make is thinking that the brightness has something to do with watts. It doesn’t.
We were thrilled to discover that one of the Land Rovers used in 2015’s Bond film, Spectre, kitted out with Lightforce driving lights, is up for auction at Sotheby’s in London on September 6th! Who wouldn’t want one of these?
If Easter is a time that excites you as much as it does us, we start counting the weeks down before our getaway once March arrives. And while some of us may have a favorite yearly getaway, others may look to head somewhere different from year to year.

You've got questions... and we've got the answers... Since we launched our new Venom LED and Genesis LED a couple of weeks ago, buzz has really been building online with plenty of questions being asked so we thought that we would compile them into a blog post so that you can grab all the details in one place.
Fatigue is estimated to be a contributing factor in approximately 30% of fatal crashes and up to 15% of serious injuries, in fact, in 2012 more people in NSW died in fatigue-related crashes than drink driving cashes. Driver fatigue can be just as deadly as drink driving or speeding, in fact being awake for about 17 hours has a similar effect on driving performance as a blood alcohol content of 0.05.
