H13 bulb guide

158

H13 are the other class of automotive lamps that you can use for all purposes. The UN has not imposed any general regulations on its usage. For that matter, just like the other bulbs with names that begin with ‘H’, the H13 belongs to Group 1. Depending on your car’s wiring and your lighting needs, you can use them to replace projector headlights, fog lights, and many others, irrespective of the part of the vehicle’s body.

Most of these lamps use halogen technology, which has been the lighting of choice for most people across the world for several decades. It has improved by including higher lumens and more heat resistance than before. The H13 has retained low pricing compared to the new Xenon and LED headlights. However, you need to upgrade the bulbs due to their insufficient lighting and low life span. You can use them for about 1,000 hours.

Unlike many of its counterparts, the H13 are single beam bulbs, as they have two filaments. They also use P26.5t base and have a nominal power of 60 or 55 watts at 12 volts. The bulbs have high quality, but you can upgrade them if you want to solve the inadequate power conversions issues and generate more light than heat.
