3157A Replacement Light Bulbs

After extensively researching a number of different independent tests, we have chosen the 3157A lamps based on the brightness, durability and lifespan.

LED Lights

– Bright: 2 times brighter than stock dim halogen/incandescent 3157/ 3156 lamp
– Energy Saving: Our 3157 LED bulb draw about 5.5W yet the stock lamp draws about 21W. Led bulbs draw much less current than stock lamps. Lower power consumption
– Better Light Performance: Each bulb equips with 54 pieces of high power premium quality and high illumination 4014 SMD led chips. 360° full angle degrees light output, the same light theory as the stock lamp for the better light performance.
– Longer Lifespan: Built-in Intelligent IC driver for better stable current performance and heat dissipation for a longer lifespan
– Wide Application: Fit T25 wedge base, Cross reference number: 3156, 3056, 3156A, 3156AK, 3156NAK, 3047, 3047K, 3057A, 3057ALL, 3057, 3057ST, 3057K, 3057X, 3057, 3057LL, 3155, 3157A, 3157AK, 3157, 3157K, 3157X, 3157LL, 3157ST, 3157KX, 3157NA, 3157NALL, 3357A, 3357, 3457A, 3457, 3457K, 3457NA, 3757A,3757AK, 4057, 4057LL, 4057K, 4114, 4114K, 4157, 4157LL, 4157K, 4157NA, 5702A etc.

Check Specifications Before Purchase

It is compulsory to pay attention that a brand-new bulb should fit perfectly, some kinds may not be interchangeable. In addition, think about which light kind - HID, LED or halogen - would certainly be superior. And also finally, ensure power level, brightness and color temperature meet your objectives.

Halogen vs HID (xenon) vs LED lamps: what bulbs are the best

Each alternative has its distinct pros and cons, each is more efficient for distinct requirements. The option typically relies on technological characteristics that determine ordinary service life, illumination, performance, affordability as well as the length of time the bulbs last prior to beginning to turn cloudy. Objective of the bulb moreover determines this evaluation. For example, fog lights can not be too bright, due to the fact that it is threatening for the vehicle owner and passengers of the vehicle and even for other individuals on the road.

The halogen head lamps tend to produce relatively a lot of warmth. This attributable to just how they function: a lot of its brightness comes not from extra wattage, but from increasing the filament temperature. Warmth radiated in this process is visible as blazing glow. The identical heat energy of halogen bulbs has a interesting perk in cool weather. If you compare and contrast halogen vs LED auto lights, only halogen bulbs can radiate significant amount of heat to soften ice and snow off your front lights. LED lights burn much colder and so are not as beneficial.

When it comes to the LED bulbs or light-emitting diodes, they are predominantly applauded for their energy economy and also lifespan. At the start LEDs were suggested as 90% more reliable selection to ordinary incandescent lamps. They do not rely on gas, merely the power of electric current, and they send out radically less warm. It could seem to be a down side in connection to their halogen equals, yet less heating brings about extending their efficient usefulness. The 3rd option is xenon (HID) light bulbs. The HID in their name suggests high-intensity discharge, hinting at the remarkable quality of such lights - their distinguished brightness. In power expenditure as well as warm production they occupy a place between halogen and LED bulbs.

They have no need of filament, yet still utilize gas (xenon) to emmanate glowing white-hot light they are famous for. Although they that can be found in a variety of colors. In reality enough the greatest perk is additionally the weakest factor of HID light bulbs.

That is why the lamplight is featured by color temperature or to put it simply, just how warm they appear as. The measurement system for this is degrees of Kelvin (K). The closer the color temperature to the sunlight, the better. It is most favorable for the human eye. Here is a listing of recommended temperature levels for every kind of light bulbs:

  • 3200K for Halogen lamps
  • 4300K for Xenon
  • 6000K for LED
