A diagram showing the difference from LED lights for cars

One of the biggest and easiest automotive upgrades is LED lights for cars, and it’s for good reason. Now, more than ever, drivers are abandoning the standard low yellow light of halogen bulbs for the modern, slick-looking light of LED lights for cars. But this trend isn’t just for cars—trucks and motorcycles can also use LED lights to give them a futuristic and impressive look, while widening the visible distance. 

Whether you’re unsure about the switch from halogen to LED, or you’ve already made up your mind, the following article is sure to get you revved up about the best LED light bulbs for cars around! 

The Many Benefits of LED Lights For Cars

Since they hit the road, LED lights for cars have changed the way manufacturers and drivers understand car lights. Though LEDs can be slightly more expensive than halogens, LEDs last longer and have a stronger intensity of light of up to 12,000 Lumens. This quality of light makes visibility down the road clearer so that drivers can stay safer on the road. Read on to learn more about the benefits of LED lights for cars.

Long Lifespan 

First things first: If you’re going to make the switch, you want to know that an LED light is going to be worth the cost. Lucky for you, LED lights for cars can last for up to 20 years. Compared to halogens, which sometimes need to be changed yearly, this means that you will rarely have to change your LED headlights. The longevity of these lights is in part due to their simple but solid structure. LEDs are made up of single units that convert electricity into light, which is far more efficient than halogen bulbs that require more components and moving parts to function. 

LEDs come with heat sinks that keep the areas that electricity passes through from heating up. Here’s a reason to make sure you look for the best LED lights for cars: A poor functioning heat sink could do greater damage to the car as a whole. Luckily, even if you were to go with our more affordable LED lines, the lights are often only used at night. 

Energy Efficient

LED lights are the most energy-efficient car lights on the market. LED lights draw far less energy from the car’s electrical system than halogen lights by converting over 80 percent of energy into light and 20 percent to wasted heat. Put another way, LED lights only use 18 watts of electricity compared to halogen’s 65 watts. In addition to being energy efficient, LED lights are also more environmentally friendly in that they are not made with mercury

Easy Installation

In addition to all of the excellent functional qualities of LED lights for cars, these bulbs are incredibly easy to install and should only take you around 30 minutes to do so. The majority of LED lights for cars are fairly small, which means they can be shaped to different designs. If you’re a DIY car enthusiast, this retrofit installation process is seamless as a short ride down your favorite route. 

Stunning Aesthetic 

Last but not least, you want lights that are going to make your car impress onlookers. Dim, weak, yellow halogen lights are not going to make the cut. The sheer brightness of LED lights are like knives cutting through the silky fog, making your car a force to reckon with when it comes to whose car is the most eye-catching. Plus, for those on a budget, it’s far less expensive to install a pair of LEDs than it is to upgrade to a brand new car.
