LED (light-emitting diode) lights are fast-becoming one of the most popular choices in lighting, including automotive lighting. That’s why automotive replacement bulb retailer VLEDS is announcing the addition of LED headlights to its online store, to give its customers an alternative to the more traditional halogen headlights.
LED and halogen lights have significant differences. Different lights suit different consumers, depending on a number of factors, and one’s budget is just the beginning—a consumer’s energy preferences as well as vision issues are significant factors that influence the decision between these two headlight options.
Halogen lights, currently the most widely used lights in the auto industry, have the advantage of being fairly long-lasting—they usually have a lifetime of about 1,000 to 1,500 hours. This, in addition to being very inexpensive to replace, makes halogen attractive to many drivers. However, the bulb is far from being energy-efficient—when generating light, a halogen bulb will heat up dramatically, wasting a good amount of energy. Furthermore, one has to be extremely careful when installing halogen lights, as the bulb won’t last long in high heat if skin touches it—the salt in skin moisture can damage the bulb, shortening its lifespan and effectiveness significantly.
For those drivers looking for the most energy-efficient headlight bulb out there, LED is the answer. LED lights tend to use about 75% less energy than halogen bulbs and are apt to last 25 times longer than halogen bulbs. This alone makes LED a growing choice among consumers who are looking for a more efficient automobile. Lastly, LED lights shine more brightly than halogen lights, which many people with night vision problems prefer. Due to these advantages, LED headlights are generally more expensive than halogen lights, but most LED enthusiasts prefer such a long-lasting, energy-efficient, and brighter bulb that the price is well worth it for them.
Founded in 2005 in Bellingham, Washington, VLEDS has quickly become one of the largest suppliers of automotive LED and HID lights in the world. VLEDS offers an incredible array of bulb types, from headlights, fog lights, brake lights, and license plate lights to lights for turn signals, festoon dome vanities, parking markers, and instrument gauges, as well as may other parts.
