Benefits of using LED Headlamps:

LED Headlamp technology is the most modern technology used for the headlamps of the car. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. It has several technological advantages over its rivals i.e. halogen lamps and xenon headlamps. So, these headlamps are becoming very popular in the passenger vehicle segment.

The biggest advantage of the use of LED is that they produce light of color temperature 5500 kelvin which is very close to the daylight. This color temperature is even closer than that of the light produced by Bi-Xenon headlamps. Thus they put minimum strain on the driver’s eyes. When we compare with other headlamps, the visibility of LED headlamps is high in dusty and foggy environments. Thus, LED headlamp in unison with the Adaptive headlamp technology, is a great safety enhancing package.
