The world of LED lights is truly one of the most popular and fastest developing fields of technology now. It is hard to believe that only several years ago, light-emitting diodes were highly inefficient, unused, and were typically only used in indicator lights on small electronics and computers. Now, LED lights are the most efficient type of consumer lighting product, affordable, flexible, and used on various products.
In this post, I’m going to go over the use of LED lights in cars, which have become a very popular and excellent choice for both interior and exterior lighting for cars.
LED lights were first used in cars in 2004. However, at that time, these LED lights used in cars were not nearly as efficient as those used in cars today, but still a great choice. With huge developments in LED technology since then, LED lights are becoming more and more common. In fact, in 2008 Lexus first used LED lights as headlights in a car.
In fact, with LED lights becoming more and more popular, it is predicted by experts that LEDs will become even more popular than the more conventional HID headlights.
Using LEDs for car headlights provides many advantages. For example, LEDs are extremely energy-efficient, able to save large amounts of energy even while emitting a very strong light, even stronger than more conventional lighting. These energy savings end up going towards your gas bill.
LEDs are also very flexible and can easily be programmed. For example, LEDs are commonly used in signal lights on your car, such as lights for brakes, turn signal lights, as well as parking lights.
There are, however, a few disadvantages to using LED lighting for your car. For one, LED lights are still a bit more expensive than more conventional lighting. However, as LED technology is developed more and more, the cost is going down exponentially. In addition, by using LED lights you are usually able to save much more money in the long run.
LED car lighting does also present another problem regarding the temperature. LED lights can sometimes be damaged in high temperatures, which is a problem if the base of the lights are placed too close to the engine. In addition, LED lights can encounter problems with extremely cold temperature, when snow or frost develops on the car.
