In November 2019 a third party made Baja Designs aware that the SAE Squadron was out of compliance with J583 guidelines. We immediately shipped samples to a testing facility for further verification. Our testing discovered that the light was over by 119 candelas on the upward horizontal axis. In more understandable terms, that is the equivalent of 1.19 candles at 10 meters. Our engineering department has been working on a fix for existing customers ensuring their SAE Squadron’s comply. We have developed a lens insert that has been tested and confirmed by Intertek, the global leader in compliance testing, that can be installed into existing products.
Current backorders of our SAE Squadron will ship in 3-4 weeks. Existing customers can either install the insert themselves or contact Baja Designs directly requesting a shipping label. Once we receive the light in-house, our trained technicians will update the SAE Squadron followed by expediting the now compliant Squadron back free of charge.
Please reach out to Baja Designs directly ensuring your SAE Squadron is updated within a timely manner.
CA State Governor Gavin Newsom has issued a "stay home order" to all California residents. Baja Designs has temporarily paused most operations until further notice from the State.
Select departments will continue to work from home and can be reached through their normal email addresses.
We are doing everything possible to fulfill orders at this time. The health and safety of our employees, partners, and customers is of the highest concern to us and we thank you for your patience during these unsettling times.
In this video we demonstrate “uService” which is a feature we offer on our forward projecting light line of product. If you’re looking to change a pattern or color this is for you! Changing lenses is extremely easy to do and allows you to get the most out of your lights for dynamic situations!
