There are many kinds of Off Road lights available for ATV and UTV applications.  When you choose to go LED your choices drastically shrink.  Most are on eBay from a Chinese seller, so you don’t really know what your getting and how bright they will be.  I did some research, I wanted to find the best lights I could find and I wanted to go LED because of the low power draw, long life and HID look.  I came across the Kolpin Dually LED flood lights.  I did the research, liked the specs 1.1 Amps 15 watts 1300 Lumens and the fact that they are made in the U.S.A.

When they first arrived I was surprised by the small size 3×3″ they are very compact and gave me many options of where I could install them.  The light itself has a nice black finish to it and good quality build. It has cooling fins on the back that aid in cooling the 4 LED configuration.  The lens is made of a 100% optically clear plastic material instead of glass which inherently makes it tougher.  Weather is no problem for this unit as it has a IP68 rating and is waterproof.   The light is ready to go out of the box it even includes a fuse and a lighted switch that is pre wired, all you have to do is hook it to a 12v power source.  The brackets are easy to install and they also swivel to angle the light up or down.  I was impressed by the quality of the wires and the waterproof connector.

They Look Great!

An Amazing Difference

I decided to install the lights on our GR manufacturing Mule 610 roof that we got at http://www.utvproducts.com.  I did not use the included switch, I used the Kolpin PowerPod Pro that I will review soon.  Once the system was wired up, the moment of truth arrive to power them up.  I will describe the first time I turned them on them up in one word “WoW” these lights are amazingly bright.  They make the stock headlights look like a joke.   The beam is a focused bright white light with no shadows or hot spots.  With 3 Dually LED lights running there is minimal voltage drop compared to the stock headlights which drop around 2 or 3 volts when turned on.  They come in either spot or flood configurations, I chose the floods to get a wider range of light.

My verdict is that Kolpin Dually LED flood lights are a awesome and the brightest LED flood lights I have seen for the 12v Market.  I am so glad I got them, but don’t take my word for it, I have spotted other Kolpin LED lights on trucks on the TV show Ice Road truckers and Storm Chasers holding up to the harshest of environments.  I think next I really want to put these on my truck that would be awesome!  Check them out at Kolpinpowersports.com
