When you are driving your car on a road, the safety of other road users and yourself is the utmost priority. Car headlights are very crucial in road safety, especially at night and on a foggy day. If your headlights are not working properly, you might end up in an accident. Either you won’t be able to see others or others are unable to see you because of dim or blurred lights. The results of such accidents can be devastating most times.
For a safe nighttime drive, your headlights should be of excellent quality. Some headlights, like Evo 9 LED headlights by iilumo can bring many advantages if you get them installed in your Mitsubishi or any other car for that matter.
Here are the top four advantages of using LED headlights for your car.
1. Directional Light
LED lights emit light at 180 around the light source. This means that the light rays will be directed on the road. The other incandescent light sources emit light that is scattered around the light source, therefore, reducing the efficiency of the light. LED headlights can increase the visibility of a car in the darkest of nights, therefore, reducing the risks for accidents. The driver can easily see what is in front of him from a distance and take precautions on time.
2. Flicks Efficiently
When you are driving a car, there comes a moment when you can not blow the car horn due to some reason. For example, you might be in a residential area in the middle of the night, or there is a hospital nearby. Horns can cause noise pollution and are often detested. Therefore, drivers flick the headlights when needed. Traditional car headlights take time to fully work again when turned off and on rapidly. However, LED lights can flicker more effectively since they can withstand frequent flicking. Also, most light bulbs can not withstand frequent switching, thus reducing their lifespan. LED lights have a longer lifespan and they can easily turn ON and OFF rapidly.
LED headlights can be a cost-effective solution for your car as compared to incandescent bulbs. LED lights have a lifespan of around 50,000 hours. Whereas, most other headlight bulbs live up to a thousand hours. Therefore, you will need to replace other bulbs more frequently. Though they do not cost much, constant replacement and maintenance can add up to havoc. Whereas, LED headlight bulbs can work fine from six to twelve years. Therefore, you will not have to worry about headlight maintenance after every six months.
4. Dimming Capacity
Lastly, LED lights can be dimmed from 5% to 100%. This can allow drivers to adjust lights as per their requirements. Whereas, other headlight bulbs can not be dimmed with such precision. Secondly, if they are dimmed, their performance is compromised. Some light bulbs do not dim at all. Therefore, if you replace your Mitsubishi headlights with LED bulbs, you will have a better nighttime driving experience.
