Yes, I think you have the right thinking, makes much more sense. If I go LED, I would do the same.

It's a neat bulb, but look at the LOW LUMINS! Not very BRIGHT. Just better to get them with the flexible braided Heatsinks on the back, IMHO.

What good is the fan going to do inside the headlamp?
IMHO non-moving parts are better.

It was originally referred to the specific bulb characteristics only -- i.e. no more than 25 W. For that kind of power, the cooling should be adequate. Me doesn't think of passive one as a better option. So, the key was - for that kind of wattage and luminosity However it immediately became an object of criticism, one said it's not enough light, the other blame cooling. As if i was trying to sell this bulb to someone.

Flexible Thermal Straps is a known way of sinking heat
Anyone who has burnt his fingers holding a heavy gauge cable while soldering a connector with a 60 watt iron will agree on copper's heat conducting abilities.

Conductivity means copper will heat quick, so will the antifreeze in engine. But after couple minutes of idling the thermostat will turn that fan on. Lights are supposed to work for hours, what is going to be turned on.
