How hot does the JW Speaker 8800 get?

Temperature of the Heated 8800 JW Speaker 4×6 LED Headlight

The new 8800 4×6 LED headlight from JW Speaker gets really hot! This is a good thing because if people are driving large trucks through the mountains ice and snow buildup on the headlight lens can be a real safety concern. Until now, if you want a hot headlight, you needed an incandescent headlight…and nobody wants that because they’re not bright and use a ton of energy! A couple years ago Truck-Lite introduced the world’s first heated lens LED headlight housing for sealed beam applications. It was a 7″ round version
