    Philips Xtreme Ultinon 35w and 50w. You can see the difference for yourself.

      That's quite the difference. I never see such a difference with any of the three adjustable wattage ballasts I've tested. Are the bulbs the same age?

        Just replaced my ~100 hour CBI with new CBB in my s2k ap2 projector. CBB is definitely quite a bit brighter and color is a more cooler white.

        Driving longer trips I would prefer the CBI, they were easier on the eyes. But since my car is more of a weekend car, I would take CBB for the extra brightness. The reviews and comparisons from TRS were spot on.

          I don't have a way of comparing two light outputs the way your picture shows, but your picture is a good way of describing how the CBB is in comparison to the CBH. I have both CBB and CBHs with Lexus projectors. So far, the CBB just seems to be more bright or intense throughout more of the beam pattern than the CBH. So I would say the CBB is like the 55w light output in your picture, and the CBH is like the 35w light output. I will post a video or pictures in a few weeks.

              ​Its normal, every time we have tested like this you can see a difference. The bulbs are not the same age, one is about 2 years old (not daily driven) however the colour was the same at 50w. Also, and this is why I would only buy Philips (and wasted my money buying a new set to test as we hadn't tested long term xtreme ultinons before), they were the same lux, new vs old, tested using the same regulated power supply, ballast and projector.

              ​Light output is about 30% increase in lux going from 35w to 50w on the same bulb etc.

                If not more. We have seen 40-50% increase. 47% in the video I just posted.

                  ​You're right, I should have done actual math instead of on the fly math with fingers lol. It is actually in the 45-50% range now that I use the actual numbers and a calculator
