LED lighting technology is becoming more widespread. Here are the best LED headlight bulbs on the market right now and where to buy them.
As LED lighting technology becomes more widespread, more automakers are adopting the technology in recent years as costs continue to drop. That means there’s a wide assortment of options when it comes time to finding a replacement LED headlight bulb for your vehicle, from brands you likely never knew existed. If you previously owned a vehicle with halogen or high intensity discharge (HID) headlights, you’re probably familiar with brands such as Philips and Sylvania when it comes to replacement bulbs; but that won’t be the case with LED bulbs.
The brightness of an LED bulb is measured in lumens, so that’s one important factor you will want to pay attention to when picking a replacement. You will also want to compare their advertised operating life if you drive often at night. LED headlight bulbs tend to last much longer than halogen and HID bulbs, which also make them very cost effective and convenient for the vehicle owner.
Most importantly, many LED headlight bulbs can be used to replace halogen headlights if you’re looking for a brighter, longer-lasting light. Many of the manufacturers include plug-and-play kits with their products, so you don’t need to do any modifications to your vehicle.
