There is a new upgrade option for headlight bulbs, thanks to the new Ring Xenon5000 headlight bulbs. These bright, white headlights match the colour of LED daytime running lamps without HID or LED technology.
Modern vehicle lighting often incorporates low energy, very white LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). These emit an attractive white light, with a very high colour temperature – around 6000K. As most cars still have standard halogen headlights, this can lead to an inconsistent look between the white DRLs and the headlights, which will emit a yellow-tinted light, with a colour temperature of around 2700K. Ring’s latest performance headlight bulb – the Xenon5000 – is different. This bulb emits a very white light, with a colour temperature of around 5000K. These bulbs closely match LEDs, and give a high spec finish. It is the easy way to upgrade the look of a vehicle and responds to the growing trend for whiter headlights.
As well as giving an attractive appearance, the whiter light improves reflections from road signs and markings, and the bulbs put up to 50% more light on the road than a standard halogen headlight, making nighttime driving safer and more comfortable.
Matthew Flaherty, Ring’s Lighting Product Manager, says: “The mismatch between headlights and LED DRLs gives an inconsistent look in vehicle lighting. The new Xenon5000 bulbs give drivers a low-cost upgrade that is easy to install and gives instant results, while giving a clear upgrade opportunity and chance to increase profit. We’ve used highly engineered lighting technology and testing to ensure that not only do these bulbs give an attractive white light output, they also put more light on the road and are fully street legal.”
The new bulbs come in popular H1, H4, H7 and H11 and references, with an SRP starting at £28.49, making them ideal to fit on a wide range of vehicles. They require no wiring changes and are ECE Reg 37 approved, making them road legal. The H4, H7, and H11 bulbs have a stylish silver tip, to blend into the headlamp unit and give a high spec finish. A countertop display unit is also available.
The Xenon5000 is the latest addition to Ring’s performance halogen range and joins the rest of the brighter and whiter bulb ranges. It is available to order now.
