Just to add my $.02 on top of Eric's, I think both scenarios are possible
depending on circumstances. If you have the high beam on and are not
moving.......possible meltdown.....On the other hand intermitent use or cold
external temps may not allow lens temperature to reach fission levels. Maybe
moderation coupled with relays is the simple answer.
