SEALIGHT has created a knowledge database of its own covering almost all the popular brands, models and makes of automobiles. To make it easy for you to identify the exact aftermarket replacement for your car, you can access this highly comprehensive database on the official website. Just look up your brand and simply select. Identify your model and vintage and you have all the information that you need on the types of high beams, low beams or fog lights that are compatible to your car. The technically explicit information is provided in the form of a spec table to ensure clarity. You may purchase online what appeals to you.
The switch to LED Automotive lighting for both, exterior and interior, has become a priority. The era of incandescent lights is approaching its end because they have a shorter life and consume more power. They are also less bright compared to LEDs or Light Emitting Diodes. Although the auto industry has not entirely switched to this new technology in lighting, a number of premium brands have already made the switch. For those makes and models that still roll out with incandescent lights, there’s always the option of aftermarket replacement. The knowledge database would clearly give you a listing of brands and models for which aftermarket replacements are available.
What makes the technology superior is that the lighting element is made from very thin layers of semiconductor material. One layer has an excess of electrons, while the next would have a deficit. This difference causes the electrons to move from one layer to another, thereby generating light. Manufacturers now have the technology to make these layers as thin as .5 micron or less. A micron is equivalent to a ten-thousandth of an inch. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LED light bulbs have no filament and therefore never fuse. It’s a fast evolving technology that is set to replace halogen and xenon lights for headlamps and daytime running lights.
LED Conversion kits are available for most of the popular brands of cars. These include all the brands of GM, Chrysler, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Mercedes, BMW and many more. Aftermarket kits are user friendly and all the relevant instructions are available along with 24-hour customer service support. The auto industry is ever evolving and newer models with even newer features arrive in the market. The accessories available too are make and model specific. The database would facilitate your upgrade project with reliable support, regardless of your model or make.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) data suggests that the average 60-watt incandescent lamp produces about 16 lumens per watt and has a lifetime of 1000 hours. An equivalently bright CFL produces 67 lumens per watt and lasts 10,000 hours, and an equivalent LED produces about 83 lumens per watt with a lifetime of 30,000 hours. The long-term energy and monetary saving arising out of the shift in lighting technology is incomparable. Over time as the R&D costs and capital costs of manufacturers are recovered, the cost of these lamps would begin and continue to drop, which would be inversely proportionate to the increase in their efficiency and longevity. The EIA forecasts that with the switch to the new lighting technology by 2027, the national saving would be equivalent to an annual output of a 44 1000-megawatt electric power plant.
