THE KING IS BACK! Just two month ago we brought back the Axiom AXLE9 LED module into Project Tighty Whitey powered at 12 volts just like all others and the result is .5 watts per module. This month we added the same module but boosted the secondary to 14.7 volts where the Axiom LED AXLE9 runs at optimum. Just like in the original Great White Hope we all got the see the great results all the way to 36,000 hours and it kep right up there with GE's Power Tera Max going toe to toe. It was fair to say that both the Axiom and Power Tetra Max both outlasted the competition in that high powered (1 watt+) module class when it came to LEDs, and Elite Neon's Elite 65 for Cold Cathode Lamps or Neon. Well what a great module the Axiom AXLE9 is, you can use it as a standard 12 volt 1/2 watt module and it's still one of the brightest .5 watt module and =/+ brighter than any module that's .85 watts and lower in the Mid Sized Class systems that are in Project TIghty Whitey...or all you have to do is drive up the secondary to 14.7 volts and use at a high powered 1.6 watt module. By driving up the voltage from 12 volts to 14.7 you are not over driving it at the least as we've all witnessed and seen in The Great White Hope, maybe that's because it's one of the best chips on the market....Nichia of Japan, or maybe it's just the way it's designed! I took an early shot and I'm probably more impressed this round in the Great White Hope II than I was back in 2008 when we threw it in 36,000 hours ago. This newer version is brighter and as you can see it's pretty on par with the 60ma Neon lamp. Which one is it, it's the one at the very top of the stack....right above the 13mm 60 ma EGL DL61 Lamp. Like it always goes to the Sign Syndicate light tests, all we can do it throw everything up against the wall and we'll see what stick and what falls. I'll update July's evaluation sheet soon to reflect the addition.
