Some Useful Tips
If you think your eyes are not working as good as they used to, it maybe time for you to upgrade your vehicle's lighting system and get your eyes tested of course!
The decision to change a vehicle's light may sound simple, but because of varying options available on the market, you may get a little confused regarding the ones which are best suited for both your vehicle and application. We hope to shed some light on the best LED lighting options that will work as per your driving needs.
Why Should You Upgrade?
Now, before spending extra bucks, let's get to the bottom of the main reasons why you feel you need an upgrade. Analysing your main reasons for looking for better lighting may help you avoid making common mistakes. The most common reasons why people look for change are as mentioned below;
- The light output in dim and yellowish.
- The distance and width of the light output is not enough
- There is a dead space in the pattern of headlights.
The halogen headlights that come with vehicles diminish in 2-3 years, which is again why many people look to get their vehicle lights changed to something brighter and stronger with better patterns.
If you also have similar issues, then we should opt to upgrade your headlights. Here we have further explained the different types of bulbs for you to pick the right one.
What Type of Bulbs are Right for Me?
Yes, LED light has taken over the market but still halogen lights are the most common type on the road today as the technology has been around for years. Newer vehicles have opted for LED lights mostly, but even though halogen is older, technological advancements have upgraded its quality.
By improving the filament material and the gas mixture, they deliver more than ever before. Although this technology cannot still compete with LED lights, they certainly have a few advantages of their own.
- They are still the most affordable
- Defrosting of the headlight is aided by halogen lights in colder climates
- The ratio of light output by cost is high as compared to other technologies.
2. LED (Light-Emitting Diode)
LED lights are no doubt the in-thing now due to the increased brightness and visibility, especially during the night. They are energy efficient as well as they use minimal power. Another thing to note is that Light-Emitting Diode (LED) emits highly concentrated light by combining several small lights which can be shaped into several assemblies.
Replacing them is a piece of cake as it is mostly plug-and-play and you will not damage them in the process as they do not have a filament like halogen lights, hence less susceptible to damage.
While there are ups, there are several downs as well, in the case of LED, there are not many disadvantages but we still would like to make sure that you know all of the information available.
The LED surfaces are cooler than halogen which is good, but that means the dimension of the light increases because of this which means you have to make sure that there is enough room for installation. Secondly, if you are installing it in an older car, as it draws less power than halogen, your vehicle may give a built-out warning signal.
Adding an appropriately rated resistor can easily fix these issues. If you require a high lumen LED light bar, it comes with a controller that needs to be installed as well which needs your attention.
All these downs are not that big a deal when we see the advantages of using LED headlights which include:
- High energy-saving lights
- Highly intense and bright at a low amp.
- Long-lasting and easy to handle.
- Does not need warm-up time and lights up instantly.
- Gives you the much-needed performance and cost-saving.
LED Off-Road Light Bars:
If you are into recreational off-roading and looking for the perfect lights, we highly recommend our line of LED light bars, which are mostly used in 4X4 vehicles.
Off-roading is fun as well as dangerous as you need to be an efficient off-road driver as well as have the right tools to make the right judgment in split-seconds. Any delay can be hazardous, which is why having a clear vision of what is ahead of you is absolutely necessary.
Having said that, it is more fun than dangerous as it can give you the thrill you have never experienced before, which is why it is not recommended for the weak-hearted. LTPRTZ off-road lights are designed in such a way that you get maximum visibility, which can help you be fully prepared for what is ahead of you and still not miss out on the fun of off-roading.
The off-road lights can be mounted on the roof, sides, or grille of the vehicle. You have to obviously consider the size and shape of your vehicle before you can decide which one suits it the best. Installing them correctly is important, as it makes all the difference.
As the brightness of your vehicle's headlight instantaneously increases, it gives you amplified visibility of the road ahead as well as from side-to-side, which makes the ride less accident-prone.
The whiteness of the LTPRTZ off-road lights gives you more clarity of the road and you can see farther down the road which makes your drive extremely safe.
Looking to drive through the bumpy sand dunes of a desert or a rocky riverbank, our LED off-road lights will make your experience enjoyable, more than ever.
The Bottom Line- Think Beyond LED Headlights with Maximum Lumen:
If you assume that buying any LED headlights or light-bar that offer maximum lumen is the way to go, think again. Lumen is not the only metric to measure, as it is also essential that the light is directed properly, creating the right pattern for road and off-road travel.
Our products are designed to make sure that both these factors are considered on-point and you get the best possible output that no other light can beat. Our LTPRTZ LED light bar product line will fit all your off-roading needs seamlessly.
