Visibility in daylight is not only about how bright the light bulb is but also the color of the light.
If you measure the brightness of the stock bulb when compared to the Mtech v3 you will find that the Mtech is a much more brighter bulb but the OEMs are more visible . The reason is the COLOR
Orion v2 has a 6500k color, this adds a pinch of purple to the color of the led's when compared to a 5500k Orion v4 which is perfectly white in color.
When you look at both versions of Orions (v2 &v4) standing exactly at the same distance, there is not much difference that your eye can tell as far as brightness. You will be able to distinguish based on the gaps that are seen on the Orion v2 vs the Full Led arrangement on the v4s.
Now, which one is more eyecatching -- Orion v2 (cuz it has color)
Which one is more bright - Orion v4
I hope this answers our question.
