Driving Lights For Your Cars

As you may expect, you get what you pay for, in the case of LED driving lights here is why.

* In cheaper lights there is minimal heat sink to dissipate the heat. This means a lower weight light that will run hotter & can lose up to a significant 20% of light output as it hits the higher running operational temperature.

These hotter running units can fail prematurely & burn the chrome off the reflective walls around the LED so light projected is permanently reduced. The light output is also reduced as the higher operating temperature is reached.

* There is two ways to project the light off the driving lights, by glass optics & off the reflective plastic chromed walls, the latter method is employed by the cheaper lights as it is less expensive to manufacture.

* Quality LED lights have large heat sinks in their lights, they are heavier with lower running temperature in the LED’s so there is enhanced light output & longer life of the unit.

* Quality LED lights employ glass optics, in front of the LED, with no reflection off the walls, even though they are still chromed for appearance. The glass is shaped like spectacles for its dispersion angle & is the sole source of projection. The shaping and manufacture of this type of light is considerably more expensive than sidewall reflective types.

Quality lights are able to offer higher IP ratings (weatherproof), higher vibration resistance, and often a 5 year warranty due to the quality of build. It can cost around $30,000 to design & tool up for a new quality light, & a further $20,000 for testing.

Auxbeam Driving Lights sells quality lights, and although we are competitive with other outlets in general terms, some of our lights a bit more expensive than some because of the quality. Possibly the highest quality brand that we stock is Peak which is Australian designed and built under tight supervision in China.

So when deciding which light to buy it is not really as simple as just the cheapest light, there are other very relevant factors to consider that may well give you more light (for the wattage), more life, more weather proof and vibration resistance.


Led Driving Lights For Truck

Driving on roads at night is a very challenging task not only for the new drivers but also the experienced ones. When it is a busy road, narrow streets, difficult terrains or the forest area, then it is the major concern for the car and truck drivers to ensure safety as they can see only the nearby area using normal headlights and the farther area is not clear. Therefore, it becomes important to use those lighting devices on your vehicle which give you better road visibility after the sun set. Led driving lights are such devices, using which you can apparently see the road ahead at night while avoiding eye strain. Nowadays, these LED lights are gaining a lot of popularity because of their excellent features.

What are Led Driving Lights?

A number of high-luminosity LED driving lights are brought together in the form of a short or long array and are used as your vehicle’s headlights. The beam of light produced by these lamps is much brighter and broader. It penetrates easily to the front, back or sides.

Better than other lighting devices

The design of LEDs makes them more efficient when compared to other lighting devices like Tungsten- Vacuum, Halogen, High-Pressure Sodium Lamps (HPS), High- Intensity Discharge Lamps (HIP) or car’s factory headlights. We know that the efficiency of lighting devices is measured in lumens per watt. If we consider LEDs and any other device of the same watt, we will see that LEDS are brighter.

The Features of LED Driving Lights

More efficient: – Along with being efficient, they are also very bright and have a superior spectrum.
Safe to use: – LED light bars are safer to use when compared to other lighting devices used for cars and trucks because they can be easily used in extreme conditions without the fear of them being exploded. Moreover, they do not contain any harmful gases and also reduce eye strain, thereby enhancing the vision of the driver.

Greater Life Expectancy: – Many truck and car owners get tired of replacing their lighting devices every year. For such people, LED light bars are a boon as they have a lifespan of around 50,000 hours of use, making it approximately 5 years.

Durable: – LED light bars are made really tough as they are not only water resistant but also shock proof. Their built protects them from being damaged easily.
Cost: – LED light bars are highly reliable. They consume very less energy. Hence, help in cost cutting as their maintenance and replacement cost is very less. Undoubtedly, they are more costly than other lighting devices while you buy them. But when you see their cost with the passage of time, you will notice that they give you more savings.

Buying a good quality LED light bar can be very easy if you do proper research. Always prefer to go for the brighter ones and avoid low quality LEDs. You should also consider the type of illumination it is providing i.e. spot or flood beam. Also prefer the ones which are shockproof as they will have to face extreme vibrations on bumpy road.
