Thanks to Top News for reporting what we’ve been saying all along: the future of automobile illumination lies in LED lighting. If you’re doubting me, check out my past blogs on it this very topic:
Several things make LEDs the obvious choice for auto-lighting, both inside and out. For interior decorative lighting on the dash, for instance, LEDs are perfect because they’re easily programmable and can display a huge variety of effects and colors. Also, they last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs and use much less power, so you won’t have to worry as much about draining your battery if you accidentally leave the interior lights on.
For the outside of a car, LEDs are also the optimum choice. We all know how much of a pain it is – not to mention illegal – to have a headlight or taillight go out. With LED headlights and taillights, the chances of this happening are 1/10th what they are with incandescent bulbs because they last 10 times longer. And of course, we here at Elemental LED offer a quick, affordable and easy way for you to replace those old incandescent head lights with an efficient LED bulb. Elemental LED’s 1156 LED Light Bulb Retrofit, for instance, can replace a standard screw in headlight, will last more than 10 times longer than your other bulbs, and gets only 30 percent as hot as an incandescent bulb and 20 percent as hot as a halogen! Even better, the 1156 LED Light Bulb Retrofit is vibration resistant, so it’ll remain reliable even if you get a hankering to go off-roading. (This light also works great in marine and architectural applications.)
It’s hard to feel good about driving anywhere these days, considering the price of gas and the BP oil spill that continues getting bigger every day in the Gulf. But thanks to LED lights, you can ensure that your car is using less energy, and that the gas you put into it will therefore last longer. Every little bit counts!
