Predator Orion V2 Update

Summary of all pictures and information for Predator Orion V2

Let me be clear, I love the chromiums, just think the LED's look cleaner.
The rings will install without a ballast.
They plug into your existing harness.
They are unbreakable, cold or warm weather, heck, douse them with water and they should still work

No problem - www.umnitza.com install resources.
The install is exactly the same as the chromiums, except no ballast

A lot of people have asked us about how to install the remote kit. This is a feature that allows you to install the angel eyes so they fade on/off with your interior lights.

Too many of our customers were resorting to pulling the glove box out, something that is completely unnecessary.

Details regarding this video are:
  • Total time to install this mod takes the same amount of time as the video
  • Removal of the foot well light was already performed (though this would add 10 seconds to the install)
  • This particular install was for the Predator Orion, but it's also good for the Predator Chromium install.

that said, 20K hours is 2.2 years of continuous never turning off usage. If you factor that you use it only 1 hour per day, it's 8+ years of usage for the Chromiums.
Orion V2:
1) They have a multi-stage clipping system that will allow you to take advantage of all headlight types with universal fit.
2) They have a wide angle array, 170+ degree viewable.
3) They have the highest specific output available for a stable LED of that size.
[/QUOTE]

We hope our customers will be very pleased with this, so we will describe the changes with each of the pictures below:

1.
  • The rear is covered with a full backing that holds the LED system in place. There are no external solder points on the back.
  • The covering serves as an insulation so there are no exposed points of power that could potentially lead to a short in the circuit.
  • The photo shown has additional pads that will not be on a finished ring that you receive, they were originally put there to stabilize the ring, but that is not necessary giving some proprietary mounting techniques being used.

2.
  • The clipping system is designed to clip onto all types of headlights. The multiple teeth allow you to have the proper fit no matter what application
  • It's length is sufficient for all applications
  • The clips are very high tension, meaning that once they hold onto something, they don't let go. In the past, depending on how you installed the products, you might have a clip releasing from the ring itself. That will be nearly impossible with this product.
  • Also note that the cover discussed in the previous photo is visible here for great "clarity" of what was discussed earlier.

You are welcome to contact privately anytime you want and no one is ever ignored.

Consider perhaps that sometimes, these pages are viewed with a lesser screen - like a phone - and not all information is visible.

I have to say. The 60 LEDs look soo much better. Like I stated many times the 30 LEDs look like garbage (no offence) but these 60 ones look awesome. Do you guys sell just the rings?
