Main Technical Characteristics
The 7440 or W21W bulb is a lamp that drivers use to see at night. It is a tungsten-halogen lamp that uses halogen gas to help the tungsten filament last longer. The 7440 bulb has a clear glass casing and a metal base. These bulbs are the perfect solution to replace your car or truck's interior or exterior lighting. They offer increased longevity and can withstand a lot of road shock and vibration.
A one-filament bulb is usually used for turn signals, but a two-filament bulb can be used for both turn signals and brake lights. The 7440 bulbs have 12 V: 21 W nominal power and are ECE and DOT compliant. It means that the 7440 bulbs can be used as a turn signal light or a brake light.
The base type is also important because any driver has to know if his or her car uses a 7440A or 7440NA. The 7440 bulb uses W3×16d base which is pretty easy to find in any store. With a light output of 465 Lumens and a color temperature of 5500 Kelvin, the 7440 bulb is one of the most popular and best-selling automotive light bulbs.
If you are looking for an upgrade from your standard halogen bulb, or just want a better-looking light, hid conversion kits are available that will allow you to use a 7440 bulb in your headlight. These conversions can be found online or at many car accessory stores.

As you can see, there are more pros than cons to using a 7440 bulb. If you are looking for an upgrade to your car's lighting, this is a great option. Not only will it improve your visibility at night, but it will also make your car look more stylish.
What Bulb Is The Same As 7440?
As mentioned earlier, the L-series 7440 and 7443 light bulbs are interchangeable. You can use a 7440 in your front lights, and a 7443 in your rear lights. Their compatibility may be easily checked by checking the socket type. For example, if your car has a 7440 socket in the front but a 7443 in the rear, then you can use a 7440 in both sockets.
Additionally, some cars have different-sized sockets for each side of the car. In this case, it is still possible to use an L-series bulb on both sides by matching the base type. For example, a 7440 with a W3x16d base will fit into both a 7440 and a 7443 socket. However, it is not recommended to use a 7443 in a 7440 socket due to its larger size. It is also possible to find HID conversion kits that allow you to use a 7440 bulb in your headlight. These conversions can be found online or at many car accessory stores.
Note, that if you will install in some way a bulb, that doesn`t fit your car, and 7440 is one of those bulbs, it may cause car lighting malfunction.
Are 7440 And 7443 Bulbs The Same?
7440 bulbs are for rear turn signals, 7443 bulbs are for front turn signals, and some sedans can use 7440 bulbs for reversing lights as well. Additionally, some front parking lights might utilize 7443 bulbs because of their clear glass and wide viewing angle.
In general, 7443 bulbs are not as common as 7440 bulbs. This is because most cars use a different type of bulb for their front turn signals. However, some cars do use 7443 bulbs for their front turn signals. If you are unsure which type of bulb your car uses, you can always consult the owner's manual or the manufacturer's website.
