The fanless ones are too hot to touch. That does not bother me for the hi beam as they are not generally used for long periods but I'd probably buy the fan assisted ones for low beam if you found they ran cooler?

    I haven't tested how hot they get, but they have little fans.... I suspect they might fail pretty quick if the fans do....

    The unit overall must run cooler than halogen bulbs as they draw about half(?) the current. The fan/fanless is in lieu of the glass shielding on conventional bulbs and you wouldn’t try to touch that! As to whether fan/fanless is more efficient at disapating the heat, no idea.

    Soon I'm fitting fan less led bulbs in the fog lamps after removing the slow, dull hid kit and the fan type on dip and main beams.

    LED lights need cooling to stop the phosphor deteriorating,

    Just measured the temperature on mine once i'd got home from work, after about 5 mins on I removed the rubber cover and the dipped beam bulb heatsink was warm to the touch, IR temp thingy put it at 24degrees, though it is shiny so might be inaccurate.....

    Basically on a cold evening you'd touch these, feel they are warm and think mmm that's nice :-)

    Technology is so fast moving that nothing can be assumed or constant.
