New LED technology for Headlight Lamps


The new movement is about to come. For automotive giants like Audi, BMW and Toyota, they are all actively working on the next generation of LED application, the LED automotive headlight lamps.

PRLog (Press Release)Jul 21, 2010 – You have probably heard about all these applications for the LED technology, the LED traffic light around the street, the bright and prettier automotive LED tail lights, stop lights and corner lights such as BMW or Mercedes, and the even the latest LED daytime running lights (DRL) starts by Audi.

The new movement is about to come. For automotive giants like Audi, BMW and Toyota, they are all actively working on the next generation of LED application, the LED automotive headlight lamps.

The evolution from halogen headlight bulbs to LED headlight assembling means brighter and whiter lighting output, as well as the longer lasting (4 times longer lasting) with less energy consumption overall.

The brighter lighting output will provide better visibility therefore improving the overall safety on the road.

The whiter color means the color temperature of LED headlight lamps is about 5000 kelvin to 5500 kelvin which is closer to the color of the sun light vs the halogen filament headlight bulbs’ yellowish 3500 kelvin.

Also the LED is famous for its long lasting, so it will make the headlight last "forever" with almost zero maintain cost v.s. the halogen headlight’s 500 working hours only.

Audi has announced it new Audi R8 with LED headlight lamps and Toyota has also introduced its new 2010 Hybrid Prius with optional LED headlight lamps (also for its upper brand Lexus LS600h).

In the short future, more cars will adopt the LED technology for headlight lamps for its brighter, whiter appearance and econ-friendly and long lasting characteristics.

It can be used for giving a Audi A5 or R8 style daytime running light look or similar to a 2010 Mercedes E Class and S Class LED driving lights feel.  The product is a dual color Xenon White/Amber Yellow called a switchback LED strip, perfect for daytime running lights and add-on turn signals. These lights will give you a nice Audi A5 or R8 style daytime running lights (aka LED headlights) or the latest 2010 Mercedes E Class and S Class LED driving lights (aka LED fog lights).
