When it comes to headlight bulbs, a majority of vehicles roll off the factory floor with halogen bulbs. While these bulbs have been used in automobiles for years, their short lifespan and low light output leave significant room for improvement. Here at Diode Dynamics, we are dedicated to designing and manufacturing high performance LED Headlight Bulbs to replace burnt out halogens and provide a drastic increase in light output and an incredibly long lifespan. If your halogen bulbs have burnt out and you have to replace them, it’s the perfect time to consider upgrading to our high-performance LEDs.
The halogen bulbs typically used for automotive applications create light via a glowing tungsten filament encased within a pocket of halogen gas. The bulbs operate similarly to a standard household incandescent lightbulb, but the halogen gas within the bulb helps to maintain the filament and prevent the bulb from dimming during its lifespan. This reaction between the filament and the halogen gas requires high temperatures to operate and therefore has high power requirements.
LED bulbs use a different process to produce their light. Instead of a filament, the light produced by LEDs comes from a specialized semiconductor known as a diode. Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) allow the movement of electrons in one direction into positively charged “holes”. As electrons move towards the positive side of the semiconductor, they have to give up some of their energy, which is released in the form of photons (light). This process is much more efficient compared to other forms of lighting, resulting in far more light using less power than other bulbs.
At Diode Dynamics, we have designed our SL1 high performance LED headlight bulbs to outperform all other headlight bulb options on the market. The SL1 LED headlight bulb is the only bulb that mimics the halogen filament location for street-legal output, is small enough to install without having to modify your housing, and is built to last for over 40,000 hours. also proud to be one of the only brands that manufacture and assembles automotive LED bulbs in the US.
Our bulbs are designed to interact with your vehicle’s headlight assembly just like your factory bulb does. The LED chips on our bulbs will align in the exact position of your OEM halogen bulbs’ filament. This allows our bulbs to shine the same way as your factory bulb, only much brighter and without any glare.
Our automotive LED light bulbs are also incredibly easy to install. They are designed to fit perfectly into your vehicle without the need for modification. You simply replace your existing bulbs with our LEDs and attach the connector to your vehicle’s headlight power socket. It is important to note that the connection polarity does matter, so be sure to test your bulbs and flip the socket 180° if the lights do not illuminate.
Once you have completed installing your new Diode Dynamics SL1 LED bulbs, you will get to enjoy their increased light output and modern appearance for years to come. While a standard halogen bulb may last up to 1000 hours, our LED bulbs are designed to last over 40,000 hours. These bulbs can easily last over a decade of regular use without burning out. Every set of our bulbs also comes with our worry-free 3-year warranty.
So if you are ready to improve your nighttime visibility and never install another set of headlights again, visit Diode Dynamics to order a set of our LED headlight bulbs or find an Authorized Dealer near you. We know you will love the sleek modern look and incredible output of our bulbs.
