rpcraft, the problem with LEDs in general is that they're very directional. If you look at the LED in the right direction, they look super bright but as soon you start to approach the ends of viewing angles, the brightness is greatly diminished. The other issue with LEDs is their distance based on the power input. For example, my Watsens are 4 volts (that's a lot for an LED, it only takes .7 volts for it to turn on) and they're so bright you can see see them clearly through the masking tape in the middle of the day at distance with a picture (they're posted in the pnw trackday thread). The CA unit looks great directionally, but the second you get beyond 25 feet and/or off to the side, the brightness drops off a cliff. Then there's the issue of brightness in broad daylight which sucks for the CA unit. The integrated units are even worse.
As to what's on ebay, I can't really say to be honest. CA went out of business so we've no idea if the units on ebay are just leftover shelf stock or if they're cheap Chinese knockoffs of an already shitty product.
Boogun, I may be the first to trash CA when it comes up, but I'll be trashing it for a long time to come thanks to you ; P I, like googl3it, believe the CA unit just isn't safe for the idiot drivers we have out there. I love my CUSTOMLED unit, and I won't ever go back. Even though I have an issue with mine which was the result of user error and is a quick fix, I speak very highly of CUSTOMLED. I wish I could say the same for Watsens, but sadly I can't since they've changed their units so where you cannot optionally add in running lights which is just plain stupid.
