The traditional headlight bulb is xenon or halogen, and has been around for a long time.
Halogen is the most visible headlight right now. They cost less to manufacture and to buy and can be easily replaced if need be. Xenon HID has one thing going for it- their killer looks! They make a great impact and go well with high-end cars.
The relative newcomer is the LED lightbulb. Is it time to change your headlights to LEDs? Read on to know more.
LED lights create illumination by using electrons and diodes. That’s why they are called ‘light-emitting diodes.’ This is different to the gas and filament that regular headlights use. Because of this, LEDs use way less energy than other options and have a longer lifespan. Think 5000 hours, compared to the 2,500 hours of the Xenon HID or the 200-400 hours of the halogen.
LEDs are smaller in size, and therefore are easily adopted into most car headlight designs. They switch on and switch off in a snap and are great for all sorts of weather, especially chilly climates.
LED packs quite a punch in its diminutive size. It offers a wider pool of light, so better illumination. The light is much brighter and casts a warmer hue. The white light is peaceful to look at. Hilly terrain, bad roads- nothing is a challenge for LED lights.
Despite all it has to offer, the LED light is not more expensive than other headlights. This is a win-win. What’s more, considering that LEDs are everywhere, no matter the make, brand or type of vehicle, you’ll find it hard to avoid or ignore! From vans to luxury cars, hybrids to hatchbacks, most cars incorporate LED lights.
So, the LED is energy efficient, cost-effective, long lasting, and pleasing to the eye.
