XTR LED Headlight Kits

LED headlights are becoming very popular with users. LEDs are energy efficient and in some cases, consume 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Lower consumption can lead to a dramatic decrease in power costs. LED headlights also last longer and cut costs due to their longer lifespan. Although Halogen bulbs remain the preferred type of lights used by most auto manufacturers these days, LED headlights are also getting a lot of attention. LEDs consume much lower power and they can easily fit into small places, giving car designers more choices. LED headlight kits can be used for both reflector and projector type of headlights. Generally, they create a bright, bluish white light that is very popular with car owner. However, you can also get LED lights in yellow, if you prefer.

How Do LED Headlights Work?

LEDs are built with a more advanced technology than the one used in incandescent bulbs. Light emitting diodes are placed on LEDs that are responsible for creating light. Basically, there are two semiconductors that are fitted on a small chip, adjacent to each other. The semiconductors have a number of atoms dispersed between them. When an electrical charge is applied to the two semiconductors, the atoms move towards each other due to the electrical charge and combine. This creates energy that is released in the form of a bright spark of light. The LED technology allows these lights to turn on instantly, as soon as an electric charge is applied to the diodes. This is different from the way HID or halogen bulbs work. In incandescent bulbs, an electric arc is used to heat up a gas, halogen or xenon, and it takes time to fully light up the bulb. With LEDs, full brightness is reached within a second. LED headlights require a set of ballasts, one for each light. You may also need to install necessary relay harnesses and wiring when upgrading from incandescent bulbs to LED headlights.
