Hello dear readers.
I decided to start replacing halogen lamps with LED ones.
Some useful information.
Currently, conventional alternative incandescent lamps have been replaced by modern alternative technologies. One such modern technology is LED technology.
LEDs have their own distinctive properties andadvantages. For example, LED lamps work faster than ordinary bulbs, they have very low energy costs, and the life of such lamps is practically unlimited.
Okay. Let's continue further.
Again, I turned to Ali Express for a search. I did not have to search long. The order has been placed. Delivery took about 15 days.
These lamps are radically different from the first.
There are only two LEDs. The driver is rendered. When you turn on the near, the upper LED is on. When you turn on the far, both LEDs.
Here is some technical information.
From the manufacturers website:
XLamp XM-L2 EasyWhite
First LED of its size to enable color-consistent 50-W halogen performance
The XLamp® XM-L2 EasyWhite® LED delivers morethan 1,100 lm of color-consistent light from a 5mm x 5mm package and enables a 38% gain in light output and efficacy as a drop-in upgrade to the first-generation XM-L EasyWhite LED. The new LED is built on Cree’s EasyWhite technology - combining the industry’s tightest color binning, intense light output from a single LED and high-voltage options - to best optimize it to replace halogen technology. When compared to previous EasyWhite LEDs, the XLamp XM-L2 EasyWhite LED shrinks the size of the LED required to achieve 50-watt halogen equivalence by 70 percent, reducing system size and lowering cost.

The new LED is built on EasyWhite cree technology, combining industry-dense color discretization, intense light output from a single LED and high-voltage functions - optimize it as much as possible to replace halogen technology. Compared to previous EasyWhite XLamp XM-L2 LEDs, EasyWhite LED compresses the size of LEDs required to achieve 50-watt halogen equivalence by 70%, and also reduce system size and lower costs.
Sorry for the clumsy translation. But the meaning is clear.
Power: 20 W
Voltage: 12-24 V
Information from the seller’s site.
Now some photos:
Photo of the lamp itself. Full face and profile.
Photo by the wall at a distance of 2 meters.
Left LED lamps. Halogen on the right.
Lamp in the spotlight. It is covered. Dust and dirt do not enter. The radiator is outside. Good cooling.
The dipped beam is on.
The far light is on.
The first and biggest plus of LEDs is their power consumption. It is at times less than that of halogen.
No sophisticated equipment. They simply unscrewed the old halogen lamp and inserted an LED in its place.
Heat generation is less. And accordingly, it can be used in a conventional headlamp and even in fog lights.
The life of LED headlights is also several times longer. It reaches 10,000 hours, and this is a lot.
Shapes and sizes. Now you can install LED lighting on almost all cars, that is, the format and size of the lamps do not differ from halogen ones.
Minus the price.
