STEP 4.HALOGEN & LED PROJECT BULB COMPARE
I have to say that Tyler is an excellent creator and very responsible for the accurate test data.He prepare some electrical tape to mark where the tripod is and where his tires are so that when he projects his headlights onto the garage he can see the difference in cut off line and see how bright the lights looks.so he keeps his camera setting the same and shoot at the exact same time of night there to get relatively accurate comparative data. Let' s see how different they are!
Halogen VS Project low beam
Halogen VS Project high beam
Comparision on the same empty place-Low beam
Comparision on the same empty place-High beam
So where does that leave us? To be fair, both halogen and led bulb still have their place in the world, and LEDs are the future without a doubt.The real question is, “is it worth it?” and the answer, we say is yes. Visibility is a key proponent to piloting a motor vehicle. Seeing what’s up ahead when the road goes dark is crucial for safety, and if you can see further ahead, you get more time to react to threats. Also for individuals with ailing eyesight.
