NIGHTPRO Kamikaze Dual Light System - 32W reviews
Product Rating



Not good value
Massively disappointed in these lights, I have the older SLA Nightsport (I think is the model) 12w single light that I have had for about a year, got these this week and can't say enough how little value they offer.

The 12w of the older Nightsport is virtually the same as the 12w flood in this kit (in terms of brightness) and when raised up sees about as far as the 20w. And even though the battery is lighter it doesn't last as long as the old SLA (yes, I know its sucking more power but to get the same light you need to).

Can't emphasis enough, don't buy these lights - they are not worth the money. The only piece where they outshine the old light is in the cool mounting bracket system.
