LED (light emitting diode) lighting is one of the hottest technologies and is an exciting alternative to traditional incandescent and halogen lighting. As one of the most competitive and fast paced industries in the world, the automotive sector has developed this cutting-edge technology to be top-spec, highly effective vehicle lighting.
The science and benefits behind LED lighting
LEDs are composed of a semiconductor diode – a material that can conduct electricity – which becomes a source of illumination. Light is produced when the particles that carry the electrical current combine together with the semiconductor material. There is no gas involved in the production of their cool white light and they have a higher light per watt ratio than incandescent bulbs.
The main benefits of LED lighting are its long life span and low energy usage. Our LED bulbs can last up to six times longer than a standard bulb and can use up to 80% less energy. LEDs are ecologically friendlier than other traditional technologies as they don’t contain toxic chemicals, and their low energy use will reduce your carbon footprint.
Long life reliability meets performance
Our performance LEDs emit a pristine finish with a 7000k ice white appearance which will give your vehicle a high spec, luxury look. They also include 3D technology that will distribute 270˚ of light.
Currently the regulations for automotive lighting so not take into account LED bulbs. Therefore, any LEDs that are fitted to the exterior of your vehicle are for off road use only.
