How to choose a nice bulb?
Whenever you select the 9005xs or any other lamp, you have to know what aspects to pay attention to. Here we will tell you how to opt for a good lamp, no matter if you use it for headlights or brake lights. So, let`s get started.
First of all, you should check what the lamp is made of. The most widespread materials are glass and quartz. If a lamp is produced from glass, it will have a softer light. Such lamps are considered to be more old-fashioned but they are still relevant on the market. As for quartz lamps, they have a brighter light but their service life is shorter than that of glass ones. So, it`s up to you to decide which material to give your preference to.
This aspect is one of the most important when selecting a bulb for your car. You should know that light output is measured in lumens (lm). The higher this number is the brighter the light will be. So, if you want to buy a bulb for your car`s headlights, pay attention to this aspect.
It`s also important to know what color temperature you need. The most widespread options are yellow, white, and blue. Yellow light is considered to be the safest as it doesn`t glare. White light is brighter than yellow but it can be hard on the eyes when used for long periods of time. Blue light is the brightest but it can be very glaring. So, it`s up to you to decide which color temperature you need.
When selecting a bulb for your car, pay attention to its size. It should fit your car`s headlight housing. If it`s too big or too small, it won`t work properly.
The shape of a bulb is also important. The most widespread options are round and oval. Round bulbs are more old-fashioned but they are still popular on the market. Oval bulbs are more modern but they may not fit all headlight housings. So, it`s up to you to decide which shape you need.
9005xs lamps are a great option if you’re looking for brighter, whiter light for your car. They have many advantages such as long service life, increased downroad visibility, and a P20d base type for increased connection security. However, there are some disadvantages to using 9005xs lamps, such as the fact that they are not street-legal in some states due to the high intensity of the light output. So, if you’re looking for brighter, whiter light for your car, then 9005xs lamps are a great option.
