Just how many lights do you have in your car? Well, there's your headlight, tail light, and many other auxiliary lighting parts in and out of your ride. In all of these lights, you need a top-quality light bulb. The bulb is actually the heart of each lighting component. It's the part that generates the beams, which provide illumination as you drive. The efficiency of all lighting components depend on the bulb, and there are already a lot of bulb innovations available in the market today-foremost of which are the halogen and xenon technologies. The halogen bulb is a step up of the average light bulb. It produces stronger beams and it has a longer life span. Meanwhile, the xenon bulb brings lighting technology a degree higher with its like-daylight beams. And, it's also a greener alternative since it consumes less energy. When paired with high-quality lenses and reflectors, the right bulb can be instrumental in keeping all your drives safe, no matter how critical your driving environment is.

How to Choose a Car Light Bulb

Lights: where would we be without them? Our motor vehicle lights help provide us with added safety while driving. First of all, they help us see other vehicles even under harsh weather conditions. And secondly, they help us communicate with our fellow drivers through the use of turn signal, hazard, and brake lights. Given the importance of such components, you'll want to ensure that they're working at all times. This entails providing them with working light bulbs. Unfortunately, the bulbs of your ride will eventually wear out. The good news is you can easily have these bulbs replaced. But before you go buying the first bulb you see, here's a brief buyers guide to help you make a smart purchase.

Light Bulb Types

Incandescent Lights

This is the oldest type of bulb and it features a tungsten filament that can last until 1,000 hours. The incandescent bulb is very affordable but its main flaw is its durability. Apparently, this bulb has trouble withstanding harsh weather conditions.

Halogen

The bulb is actually a type of incandescent lighting. The only difference is that it provides a metal background that directs the light in specified direction, making it a more effective lighting system.

HIDs

HID stands for High Intensity Discharge lighting, and it offers a number of advantages over incandescent lights. This light is much brighter than halogen lighting, and it also lasts longer. Also known as xenon lighting, HIDs require less -frequent replacement thanks to its durability.

LEDs

Light Emitting Diodes provide extremely luminous and very long-lasting lighting. LED lights appear to be the default bulbs of many automakers. However, HIDs still beat out LEDs thank to its efficiency.

Things to consider

  • Bulb type- Durability and bulb longevity are your top considerations when shopping for a bulb. So buy one that guarantees both.
  • Bulb placement- If you need a bulb for your headlights, then don't buy a bulb made for the brake lights.
  • Compatibility- Some bulbs are designed for certain auto makes and models. Make sure that the one you're getting matches your ride.
