Way better than stock and way better than my underpowered mod. Just wish it came in 4700k for that bluish hue (it doesn't) iPhone cam doesn't do the brightness justice.

Nice. U could try Mylar or simplily painting light reflector bright white. White reflects light better than aluminum and most metals. Just an idea.
