Headlight - Headlights - Headlight Replacement - Auto Headlight

Your car or truck's headlights are hands down one of the most important parts you have. If not for properly functioning headlights, it would be nearly impossible to drive on the roads at night, or even in a thick fog or during an overcast day. Headlights can signal to other drivers that there's trouble up ahead, and they're also required by law to work. A blown headlight, at the very least, will ensure you go home with a traffic ticket. Needless to say, when your headlights need to be replaced, it's a repair that cannot be put off.

Fortunately for the drivers on the road today, headlight technology has improved greatly. A car or truck's headlamps used to be basic parts, sporadically blowing out and often malfunctioning at inopportune times. Thanks to technological advancements, bulbs are now stronger, brighter, and last years longer than headlights of old. One of the first major advancements in headlamp technology was the incandescent bulb. This bulb is much like a household bulb, only larger and the components much stronger.

From there, the basic bulb evolved into a neon-like structure, much stronger and longer lasting than previous bulbs, called halogen. Halogen bulbs were powered by gas and not electricity. Xenon bulbs are improvements on halogen and pretty much operate the same way. Other advancements have also been made with the shape of the bulb and the surrounding housing structure. This is to give the lights more range and a more narrowed focus, much like we see with pencil beams or fog lights. In summation, today's lights are bigger, stronger and last longer than any previous type of light bulb.

However, that still doesn't mean these headlamps can't blow out on you. Whether you got into a wreck or just lost one by happenstance, this repair cannot wait.
