The advantages of xenon headlights.

An advantage of xenon lamps is that they have a bright and clean glow that makes it much better to illuminate the road in the dark. In addition, it is worth noting that the xenon consumes significantly less power than normal halogen bulb.

Xenon lamps have higher efficiency due to the fact that its light is more focused and can cover larger areas comparing with normal halogen bulb. It is for this reasons many drivers choose real xenon bulbs and set them in their cars, as the benefits are visible at once.

How should you choose a xenon lamp?

Perhaps we should start with the fact that there are two main types of xenon bulbs:

  • Xenon bulbs;
  • Xenon-filled bulbs.

The last option is the most classic. The only difference from the halogen lamps is internal filler that is in the flask. Today xenon-filled bulbs are available in a variety of companies-manufacturers. The most famous are Japanese, Spanish and German xenon bulbs. There are several different types, which differ by their capacity and size. The most common are H7, H9 and H13.

The first form of a xenon gas discharge lamp is characterized in its structure. It has no filament. Its structure includes two electrodes that give the arc discharge. This discharge has a very bright light in a xenon atmosphere. These lamps are the representatives of the real xenon. HID headlights are equipped with a special regulator – ballast unit.

In general, xenon lamps are much more powerful than discharge lamps. For example, at a power of 35W xenon lamp produces a luminous flux of 3000-3200 LM, it is for 30% more than a halogen bulb of 70W is able to produce. So often, owners of the Toyota Corolla often install xenon lamps in the headlights of their cars.
