We get asked by our consumers all the time what's the difference between a dual beam light bulb and also a single beam light bulb. Do I need a dual beam LED if I have a dual beam halogen?
In this post, we're going to respond to all those inquiries. When you're attempting to select the ideal light bulb for your application, a lot of times it comes up which kind of light bulb a single beam or dual beam.
One of the most crucial thing to keep in mind is the single beam or dual beam is referring to the number of filaments are inside your light bulb, not the headlights. This headlight housing uses a dual beam light bulb, this headlight housing uses 2 single front lights bulbs.
I understand that's type of confusing the single beam headlight has 2 light bulbs, the dual beam has one light bulb. It all comes down to the light bulb, not the housing. For example, this is H4 halogen incandescent light bulb, exceptionally usual in different ford applications as well as also the Jeep Wrangler.
This light bulb has 2 filaments-- dual beam, this thing does reduced beam and also high light beam based on which filament or filaments are illuminated. Now if we most likely to a led headlights
, one of the most usual single beam, reduced beam light bulbs. It has one filament, one filament-- single beam. If you were to take your dual beam halogen bulb and put it in a headlight, you're gon na see that you have one large reflector, as well as inside it has one light bulb with 2 filaments.
This set light bulb does both high and low light beam, this is a dual beam front lights bulb and the one huge reflector makes it a dual beam housing. If you were to take your single filament-- single beam light bulb as well as placed it in something like this one. You're mosting likely to require two light bulbs: the low beam is mosting likely to be among the reflectors and also the high light beam is going to be the various other reflector. Even though it takes two light bulbs, this is a single beam housing because each light bulb creates one light beam: low beam or high light beam.
