Ten misunderstandings of automotive LED headlights


Myth 1: is the higher the lumen, the better?

The lumen of the lamp should be within a certain reasonable range. Too dark or too bright will affect the driving line of sight. There is a big gap in the lumen value of LED lights on the market because some businesses falsely mark lumens or use the concept of "theoretical value of lights" to steal the "actual effect value". Excessive pursuit of ultra-high lumens is a mistake in itself, and the key still depends on the actual demand.

Myth 2: is the higher the LED power, the better

Increasing the brightness of led by increasing the power can not solve the practical problem, but will lead to short service life because it can not solve the problem of "LED is afraid of heat".

Myth 3: which is better, car LED lamp or?

Every car and every person has different needs. I can only say which is more suitable. For example, the xenon lamp of the original car needs to replace the lens to upgrade the reflective bowl of the original car, which is more expensive, and a good LED can match the reflective bowl of the original car, so the specific situation depends on individual needs.

Myth 4: which is better, fan cooling or braided belt cooling?

These two models are to help heat dissipation, but the heat dissipation structure of LED lamps depends on the whole, rather than a single component. In addition, it also needs to be considered in combination with the actual installation. Different components cannot be compared from the heat dissipation alone, but the overall heat dissipation, installation volume and assembly space should be considered comprehensively.

Myth 5: LED light beads, Kerui and Philips are better?

The selection of lamp beads is based on the comprehensive consideration of brightness, light type and heat dissipation,

Myth 6: do you need LED lights?

The principle of LED and xenon lamp is different, the starting mode is different, there is no need for ballast, and there will be no high-voltage breakdown and other problems. However, each lamp is equipped with a power drive. The power drives of LED are in line with the specifications of automotive electronic products.

Myth 7: do you need to decode car LED lights?

The decoder was added because the driving computer detected the abnormality after upgrading the lights. Although the LED is started with low current and has no interference to most vehicles, some vehicle lines with detection power need to be equipped with a decoder.

Myth 8: do LED lights need chuck installation?

For the LED lamp replaced by the halogen lamp of the original vehicle, the model corresponds to the halogen lamp of the original vehicle, and the chuck is matched with the lamp type. There are also a few cars with special chucks. Huoding 360 degree chuck can adjust the light type. There are also a few chucks to solve the special problems of most special vehicles, so there is no worry about installation~

Myth 9: can all LED lights be installed?

Not 100%. Due to the limitation of structure, the assembly space of a few models is insufficient, and the installation test has not been conducted for all models. Huoding LED can cover the installation rate of more than 95% of vehicle models, and the installation of most vehicle models on the market is worry free~

Myth 10: are all LED lights the same?

The difference between the advantages and disadvantages of vehicle led lies in the difference of light type, service life, heat dissipation structure and materials used. The surface difference is not large, but the actual service life and service life are very different, so every penny is given
