Lighting is always the first priority for driving safely. Driving with dim headlights, you cannot see clearly straight ahead. If you are in the city, that might be OK, as there are street lights everywhere. While in the wild, if your driving headlights are dim, you cannot see whether there is a deer or any animals ahead. It’s very dangerous. Not like Jeep, most vehicles can only upgrade the bulbs inside the headlight, so you can upgrade with the brightest headlight bulbs. Here in Auxbeam, we will show you the best headlight bulbs guide.

Headlight Bulbs Types

Bulb types are mainly decided by the chip types. As the technology developed, there are 3 types of bulb types so far—halogen, HID and LED. When you choose the best headlight bulbs, you need to consider the bulbs types.

Halogen Bulbs

Halogen bulbs are in fact the upgrade version of the incandescent lamps. Since people found that inserting some halogen gas (normally iodine or bromine) into the incandescent lamps would make the light brighter and work longer. Nowadays, most vehicles are equipped with halogen bulbs as their factory lights.

Pros

  1. The cost is very low.
  2. Can work over 1000 hours
  3. The working efficiency is improved compared with an incandescent lamp.

Cons

  1. It will waste some power and transform the power to heat.
