Round LED Light Alternatives

Looking to replace the old halogen IPF's, but not too interested in the price of the ARB Intensity...or the thought of the big 9" lights up on the roof cage.

Has anyone had any experience with the Auxbeam or Northpole products....or other recommendations.

So you want to stay in the 6"-7" range, or go ultra small?

Hella compacts are ~6" and good quality while vision-x for is great for the ultra small range.

i have the auxbeams... they're pretty good - wide beam and has relatively long throw. Housing is metal. Overall, pretty solid unit. I think they have some sort of discount if you join their email or something. The 7" round housing fits the defenders look well.
Here is a pic... and also in my avatar pic.

Those look good. How long have you had them and any noticeable fading on the finish, rust spots or non-functioning LED's?

I've had them about a year. They've been to desert and water crossing (headlight depth).
teh housing is rough texture finished in black. The housing is not as black as i first got it... but not grey or white by any means. You can prob re-finish them with spray-on rustoleum if you want to.
no dead cells.
Their warranty is great. One day, I had a very faint fogging in one of the lights. It disappeared after a day in the sun. But I emailed them a picture. They said they've not seen that before, and UPS'ed me a new unit. I would buy from them again.

I like the new Baja Designs LP9 but they are speedy.
