The origin of LED headlight bulbs


The lighting on your vehicle is one of its most important safety features.Not only does it increase your ability to see at night, but it also indicates important signals while driving. Since the invention of the automobile, most vehicles have used halogen bulbs in all lighting applications.Due to the rise of automotive LED headlight bulbs, halogen lights will face elimination.

Let us know what makes LED lights more popular. Let's look at halogen lights, which use a light-emitting filament to produce light, much like ordinary incandescent lights.The main difference is that the glowing filament is encased in a pocket of halogen gas. This gas helps to form a halogen reaction, picking up the tungsten that evaporates from the filament by forming a salt and redepositing it once the temperature of the tungsten halogen salt becomes hot enough. 

This halogen response helps extend the life of these bulbs, although in such extreme conditions it will eventually tire the bulbs out and usually after 400 to 1000 hours of use your car's halogen lamp life will be over.

By contrast, LEDs, or light emitting diodes, create light using the movement of electrons across a semiconductor. The process is slightly more complicated than a hot piece of metal glowing, but we’ll try to make it simple. Basically the LED has two sides and one side has several holes which electrons can fit into. As electrons travel across the diode and squeeze into these electron holes, they shed some of their energy in the form of light. 

This process is one of the most efficient ways to produce light, with significantly less power used to produce the same amount of light as a halogen bulb. This is because LEDs emit light in a narrow band focusing on the visible spectrum of light. Halogen bulbs, on the other hand, produce large amounts of high wavelength infrared light. This light is not only invisible to our eyes, and therefore useless for visibility, but it can also produce a lot of heat. 

For these reasons, LEDs headlights bulbs are more efficient than halogen bulbs when it comes to looking at light production versus power consumption, but what does that mean for drivers? When you install a pair of LUXFIGHTER car LED bulbs in your car, you will see further and have more reaction time to respond to some safety accidents on the road to make driving safer. Protect your personal and family safety. You also don't have to change the bulbs as often because LED bulbs have a lifespan of 50,000 hours.

Luxfighter's led headlight automotive bulbs are also designed to handle a wide range of environmental conditions, and we use our state-of-the-art test chamber to ensure that our bulbs will perform in almost any condition. These bulbs are cycled between extreme temperatures of -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. This means you can rest assured that whether you are driving in the tundra or in the desert there is no need to worry, your luxfighter car headlight bulbs will continue to perform as expected.
