Hi,

Just came across the link about Philips x-treme vision. As per the adverstisement, it is giving +100% extra, which is more than the Phihips x-treme power which is +80% . Has already tried using this one. Please let know the review of the same, I am planning to go for a new set of lamps, bit confused between x-treme power and x-treme vision.

Link for x-treme vision:

Kaustuv.

Just bought the Philips xtreme Power 80+ bulb today and fitted them on my Swift.

Planning to leave Bangalore tomorrow morning at 5Am, so will know the difference.

Earlier had 100/90w Philips bulbs.

Paid Rs. 830 per set. Bought two sets (one for me and one for my cousin).

Thanks to Jaggu for pointing out AK Traders.
Rajender is the man who runs the place.
Nice person.

Regards
Ravi.

The manual of my Accent says 60/55 for head lamps. If I install x-treme vision or x-treme power, do I need to add any relays?

60 for high beam 55 for low. 80+ is is for senior citizens only. You have to show valid age proof at time of purchase.

60/55 is the wattage rating for the bulb, 60 is high and 55 for low beam filaments. 80+ is the philips claim that this particular brand makes upto 80% more power than a normal halogen bulb.

60/55 means 60 watts for high-beam, 55 watts for low-beam (which is akin to OEM lamp) and the 80+ means the light output is 80% more than the OEM lamp. They use enhanced technology to give more light for same input power. Light output is measured in units of lumens or candles. This higher conversion efficiency comes at the cost of lamp life, which is reduced. Senior Citizen is 60+ by the way

Philips Rally 90/100 is the best of these three for rainy days/fog and unlit highways.
Xtreme Power is whiter and brighter than standard 55/60 bulb but its no where as close to the light output of Philips 90/100. But it is enough for city usage.
I haven't used Xtreme Vision, but it is very expensive for a pair of H4 bulbs. It should be better than Xtreme Power, but got to see if it will be able to get near the Philips 90/100 in light output, which i doubt.
Philips Xtreme Power and Xtreme Vision does not need a relay with wiring kit because their wattage draw is only OE spec 55/60. They're just plug and play.
