3 Reasons to Get Projector Headlights

3 Reasons to Get Projector Headlights

Some of the most important upgrades that can be done to a car are Lights. There are a lot of attractive light accessories are available in the market, some improve the appeal of the car visually. Some are built to help improve the visibility and performance over stock lights. Projector lamps combine the best of both worlds.
Projector headlamps are headlights that use a spherical lens in front of High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon bulbs some projectors use LED bulbs as the current trend dictates.  The way the headlamp is built is completely different compared to traditional halogen headlamps.

Here are 3 reasons to get projector headlights:

More Intense Light

Projector headlamps produce lights that are a lot more intense than traditional halogen headlamps. Halogen headlamps usually produce long wavelengths of light and hence they tend to look yellowish and are sometimes unclear. Since Projector lamps make use of more modern Xenon and LED methods of producing light the intensity is very high, it is much clearer than halogen lamps and based on the quality of the bulbs used the lights vary from a white to light blue color. The cost of bulbs in Projectors might be higher but the running time of these bulbs is a lot more than halogen bulbs.

Reduced Glare

Projector headlamps use a lens to dissipate light coming from the bulbs this helps to maximize the power of the beam coming from the LED or Xenon lamp. The lens are built in such a way that the lights don’t cause a glare effect and disturb oncoming traffic even though the light intensity is higher than regular bulbs. Even when it comes to the angles in which the lights are dispersed in the lens of a projector headlamp help light to be evenly distributed in wide angles compared to using a halogen lamp with reflectors.

This is a lot more advanced compared to the traditional reflector used in halogen lamps. Also in the long run the maintenance of projector lamps are cheaper as they don’t need regular maintenance. In case of halogen lamps the reflectors need to be in good condition and they need to be cleaned regularly to maintain efficient light.

More Efficient

The lights used in the projector lamps are a lot more efficient than halogen lamps. They require lower power to run and they run at lower temperatures compared to halogen lamps. LED bulbs currently being used in Projectors cut down the energy being used for running headlight while being significantly better.
