What is the Difference Between The Cobra TIR Optics and the Apollo Wide Lux Optics?

While both the Cobra and Apollo LEDs both share the same or similar 4 watt LED's, the primary difference between them is in the way the light exsits the Light Head. Both the Cobra Series and Apollo LED's use a lens do control the way the light exits the LED.

The Cobra T6 TIR Optics are a 35 Degree Optic with a narrow cone angle, meaning that when the light leaves the LED, it is broadcast in a forward direction in a narrow cone angle. This provides a very brigh and intense light directly in front of the Light, but as you move to the side of the light the light becomes less intense. 

The Apollo Wide Lux optics are very bright as you look at them directly to the front, but lack some of the intensity of the Cobra TIR optics. With the apollo optics, as you move to the side, they remain the same brightness.

Why are the solid color Apollo LED's Brighter than The Dual Color Ones?

Until recently, the solid color apollo LED's were brighter than the dual color versions because both utilized only 6 LED's total. Recently, feniex redesigned the dual color Apollo lights and now, the Apollo modules use 6 LED's per color whether a dual color or single color. So in other words, the Dual Color uses 12 LED's with only 6 illuminated per color, and the Single Color Apollo uses a total of 6 LED's. 

Are the solid color Cannon Hide-A-Way LED's Brighter than The Dual Color Ones?

Yes. The Cannon Hide-A-Way LED's are made with 12 LED's per light, the Dual Color LED's use 6 LED's per Color, so when a Blue/White cannon flashes, 3 White LED's Flash and then 6 Blue LED's Flash. Because a Solid Color LED is only one color, they actually use all 12 LED's when they illuminate. Because of this, the Solid Colors will be noticeably brighter though at the cost of dual color functions and flash pattern selection. 

Which one is better for you? It all depends on how you will be using your lights, but we hope this explanation will help guide you in your selection and feel free to contact us if you have any questions. 

What is the difference between the Cannon 120 and the Cannon 360?

The main difference between the Cannon 120 and the Cannon 360 is the extended lens and reflector. The Cannon 120 uses minimal optics and provides a 120 degree cone of light that is projected forward from the light head. Because of this, the Cannon 120 is best suited when mounted facing the direction that you would like to project the light, and ideally needs to be mounted to the reflector housing if it is mounted inside of an vehicles OEM light fixture. 

With the Release of the new Cannon 360, the light now has an extended lens and internal reflector that will project the light more horizontally or to the sides of the light head as it is faced, because of this you will have more light projection when the light head is installed from the side of the OEM Light fixture.

Why are the Apollo Dual Color Products more expensive than the single color ones?

The Apollo LED modules all use 6 LED's per color. This means that the F6, or any of the modules in the Light Bars or Dash lights have 6 LED's for a single color light, or 12 LED's for a Dual Color light. So in other words, a solid blue Apollo Surface Mount would have 6 Blue LED's, and a Red/White Apollo Surface Mount would have 6 Red LED's and 6 White LED's. 

These additional LED's are responsible for the price difference between the two color configurations.
