Things to Know Before Purchase:
This Listing is for the Head Only!
This Head is Designed for Maximum Reach in a Small Format. If You are a White Wall Hunter, This is NOT the Head For You. It does not have a beautiful, symmetrical beam on a white wall. It has artifacts, some rings, and the hot spot does not appear to be perfectly centered in the small square portion of the corona. The hot spotWILL appear to be at edge of the small square artifact (on a white wall). In real life usage this artifact is hardly noticeable.
This is an artifact and does not reduce throw. We do include diffusers for beam smoothing, please note that these will cut down on throw.
The maximum input voltage is 6 volts. Exceeding 6v will ruin the head
The head is protected against reverse polarity.
This light is capable of causing eye damage at close range. Please use the light responsibly!!!
