Halogen lamps in the car - the cost-effective solution for optimum light


We all know it - the days are getting shorter and the nights longer and longer... the colder and darker season begins. During these times, nothing is as important as a good car light, be it the main headlight, the high beam or the tail light. The likelihood of causing an accident at night is much higher than during the day. For this reason, in the bottom section of this page, we would like to briefly and concisely explain the different bulbs on the car and what should be considered when installing a halogen bulb in the car. In addition, we give tips to buy the right bulb.

What are halogen lamps?

Halogen lamps have a significantly higher efficiency than classic incandescent lamps in cars. By adding halogen atoms (e.g. iodine), the temperature range in the halogen lamp on the car can be significantly increased, which brings a higher luminosity than the normal car bulbs. This has a positive effect on the illumination and helps us in road traffic.

Halogen lamps on the car are mainly installed in the main headlight, because that is where most of the light is needed. They are also used for the high beam, fog lights and low beam. For the other bulbs on the car, for example the turn signals or the license plate light, simple automotive bulbs are used.

From time to time, a halogen lamp must be replaced, because its service life is also limited. Voltage spikes when switching on the light, shocks, vibrations and very high temperatures reduce the performance of the halogen lamp in the car. On average, you can enjoy over 1000 hours of operation with halogen lamps, which is much more than with the previous car bulbs. After that you have to buy a new bulb for the car.

What are the designs and differences in incandescent lamps on the car?

The most common types of halogen lamps are called H1, H3, H4, H7, H9, H11 and HB3. In our store you will find other types such as HB4 or H9B. Depending on the vehicle, different variants are needed. For example, the halogen lamp H7 is installed for many vehicles in the low beam and high beam, while the type H11 is often used in the fog lamp. Here, well-known manufacturers such as OSRAM or Philips offer the most diverse versions with high quality requirements, which you can also find in our store.

There is a special feature with the often used H4, H5, H13 and H15 halogen bulbs, because these are, unlike the other types, two-filament bulbs and are used as low beam and high beam at the same time. So there is a lot of choice when you want to buy a bulb for your car.

Examples of different types of bases for halogen lamps in the car are:

Example images for halogen lamp H3, H7 and H11

Well-known manufacturers such as OSRAM advertise their series "Night Breaker Laser" with other special features, such as a higher luminosity, better illumination of the roads or whiter colors of the light. The latter is supposed to be a more pleasant light for the eyes and serves optical purposes, as it has the so-called "xenon optics". The color spectrum ranges from about 2700 Kelvin (warm white light) to 3500 Kelvin (cool white light). These special halogen lamps have the same base designs and can be used as desired.

To buy a light bulb for the car, you can find out which car light bulbs are needed for your car in the owner's manual. Then you can choose the right car bulbs from the following name manufacturers with us:

In our store you will also find replacement bulb sets, which contain the appropriate automotive bulbs for the various lamps. Here you only have to pay attention to the type of halogen bulb for the headlight, for example H7 or H4. The advantage is that the set is in a handy package and can thus always be carried in the car. So you immediately have the right bulb in the car ready, as soon as one fails.

What do I have to consider when replacing a car light bulb?

When replacing a halogen lamp on the car should be careful, because improper procedure can quickly cause damage. Before buying, first of all, check which halogen lamp you need for your car and compare the types of lamps with each other.
Have you found and bought the right halogen lamp for your car? Great! Then you can get started right away, because the exchange is mostly possible without special tools or expertise.

Please note the following points:

  • Find a dry place where the car can not roll away.
  • Ignition and engine must be switched off! Likewise, the lamps should cool down beforehand, as they become very hot during operation.
  • Document your work steps of the removal best with photos to be able to perform the installation in reverse order again later.
  • Follow exactly the instructions of your manual of the car.
  • Do not pull the cable attached to the halogen lamp of your car, it is best to grasp only the plug.
  • When installing the new car bulb, do not touch the glass bulb, this could leave grease residue and significantly shorten the life of the lamp. Because the contaminated areas burn into the glass and cause damage after a short time. It is best to use clean cloth gloves and touch the halogen lamp only at the base if possible.
  • After the new halogen lamp is installed in the car, it is best to check the functionality on a house wall. If you are unsure about the height setting, you should ask your specialist workshop for a light test.
  • In modern cars, the lamp change is often a bit more complicated and the lamps are not so easy to reach. If this is too inconvenient for you, you can simply contact your trusted workshop.

By the way, your old halogen lamps of your car can be disposed of in the residual waste without hesitation after removal, there is no danger to the environment here.

You can buy from us, in addition to halogen lamps, also different bulbs for your car for turn signals, taillights, license plates and interior lights. Likewise, we are expanding our range in the area of cost-effective and high-quality "LED retrofit".
