Xenon Headlights

Posted On November 18th, 2019

More and more you can see different headlights on cars,  headlights that emit unusually bright light. Such lights do not work by heating the filament, but due to the electric current passing through the electrodes, and forming an arc. such lamps are called xenon.

Benefits bestowed by xenon headlights

Xenon headlights in a car are installed primarily for better illumination of the road, which significantly increases control over what is happening on it at night. And already in second place, xenon headlights are a means of increasing the authority of yourself and your car, that is, auto-tuning.

An equally significant advantage of xenon lamps over halogen ones is that the former consume electricity several times less, with this factor the xenon life is much longer. But it’s worth paying for the pleasure, therefore, the disadvantages of xenon are, firstly, its high cost, but it’s worth it, and secondly, the presence of a special control unit called the ignition unit or ballast unit. Due to its uniqueness, even during severe weather, xenon light does not create a dazzling veil before the eyes, xenon light illuminates exactly the carriageway in front of the car, but not fog or raindrops.

How to make the right choice and not make mistakes in the authenticity of xenon headlights?

Increasingly, the automotive market, having learned that many motorists have a passion for the blue light emitted by xenon lamps, produces low-quality fakes, which over time became known as pseudoxenone. They do not have the authenticity of the emitted light, it is achieved only thanks to special dyes applied to the surface of the lamp, from which the illumination of the road deteriorates, and when moisture enters, it begins to heat up very much, which often leads to the glass cracking.

Replacement of headlights on xenon

Installing xenon headlights instead of halogen ones is not so difficult. To implement it, it is necessary to have minimal skills on the device of the car. First of all, it is necessary to remove the protective grille, unscrew the bumper, only if the heater does not allow you to insert the bulb without applying this process. Next, you need to pull out the lenses, thoroughly clean them, and only then insert the bulbs into the car cartridges. Now you need to do everything in the reverse order.
