After everything is said and done, users are reminded to always seek a balance between performance, longevity, and price.
This is mainly the case as headlight bulb manufacturers tend to charge more for bulbs that are whiter and very bright as well. This means that brighter bulbs that have higher color temperature and higher light output will cost more. But if you have no problem purchasing them at higher prices, well and good.
Users should also keep in mind that when it comes to halogen headlight bulbs, the types that end up being white and brighter tend not to last long. As such, you may easily end up being overcharged for a product that would not last long in the end.
The next part is very important for users who want to start using high-end products such as HIDs and LEDs headlights bulbs. The one thing you will be sure of is the fact that you will get a guaranteed white light much brighter and with a lasting life span.
Just keep in mind, if you have a brighter and white halogen headlight bulb, you will have a shorter lifespan. This is the case as higher light output bulbs tend to run more intensely and hotter at the same time this lowering shortening the lifespan of that bulb.
While a high output halogen bulb is expected to last for a year, LED and HIDs will last between 3 and 4 years.
By now, you have all the information you need on headlight light bulbs. We hope that you will make the right decisions.
Most often in the automotive market you can find light bulbs with a different designation. It is carried out according to the common European standard ECE. It uses the following encryption:
T – miniature base lamp, for example, T4W;
R – light bulb having a base diameter of 15 mm, bulb diameter is 19 mm (R10W);
P – light bulb having a base diameter of 15 mm, and the bulb diameter does not exceed 26.5 mm (P15W);
W – lamp with glass base (W4W);
H – halogen light (H5W);
Y – the presence of this letter in front of the number indicates the orange color of the bulb (PY21W).
