We have amazing LED headlights from all popular brands that will brighten up the darkest roads. Until recently, Halogen headlights were the bulb of choice for automobiles. However new technological advances have made LEDs more common as more and more car manufacturers like Toyota, Ford, Audi and Nissan are switching to LED bulbs. LED headlights are affordable and easy to install making life much easier for drivers. LED headlights project extremely bright light while drawing very little power from your car’s electrical system. They’ve captivated the aftermarket upgrade world, and any drivers opt for a simple plug-in LED retrofit kit for headlamps.
Reasons to Buy LED Headlights
LED headlights are a significant improvement over factory built halogen lights. The biggest advantage of LED lights is that they offer greater visibility for drivers. LED headlights are brighter, and reveal much more of the road and project farther out to help you see your surroundings. This also makes it easier for oncoming traffic to see your vehicle and improves road safety.
Another major advantage of LED headlights is that they last much longer than regular bulbs. When you upgrade to LEDs you won’t need to replace your bulbs very often. A single LED headlight bulb can last 3 to 5 years. You would probably need to change your halogen bulbs 3 times during that period.
You may be wondering about the cost and that is where LEDs don’t shine as bright as Halogens (no puns intended). LED headlights tend to cost more than standard halogen replacements. An LED bulb can cost twice as much or even highest than a halogen bulb. If you take the cost of conversion into account, an upgrade to LED headlights could be costly.
Even with higher costs however, you should come out ahead in the long run. LEDs don’t just last longer, but they are also much more energy efficient. An LED headlamp consumes less than half the power draw of an HID or Halogen bulb and still produces a brighter light than Halogen bulbs. They will cause a lower strain on your vehicle’s battery which will improve fuel efficiency.
LEDs will also meet your requirements in terms of looks. Although looks are a subjective thing, LED headlights can make even an older model vehicle look new and cooler. Unlike the yellow light of halogen bulbs, LEDs headlamps produce a bright white glow that is common in most modern vehicles. For greater effect, make sure to clean and polish your LED headlights after installation.
Considerations for Best LED Headlights
Vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and the same is true for headlights. Before you commit to buying, make sure that you are aware of the options and the LED headlights you want are available and compatible with your vehicle. There are two main types of headlights that are sold in the market; projector and reflectors. They create different types of lighting effects. Projector headlights have a designed lens that converges light from the bulb onto the road. Projectors have a sharp cut off point, narrow beam focus and the light is much brighter on the road. Reflector headlights spread the beam out, covering a much wider area. Since the light is not very focused, it won’t appear as bright as projector headlights. There is also no cut off point. LED bulbs can be used for both types of headlights.
Upgrade to Best LED Headlights with Xenon Depot
If your vehicle comes with Halogen or HID lights, you will need to do a more thorough retrofit to convert to LED lights. HID headlight systems have some components, like ballasts, that only work with HID bulbs. They will need to be removed and replaced with appropriate LED resistors and adapters before you can install and run LED bulbs on your headlights. The best way to convert your lighting system to LED is to use an LED conversion kit. These aftermarket kits come with all the necessary components that you will need to switch to LED headlights. Xenon Depot offers a wide range of LED headlight conversion kits that will make your retrofit project easier. If you are more experienced with auto upgrades and looking to do a customized job, you can also buy each component separately to install LED bulbs as you see fit. In either case, your customization project will be easier if you talk to our experts before buying any parts. Need guidance for buying the right LED headlights for your vehicle? Got a tech question?
