The FluxBeam Series: Which LED Kit is Right for Me?

Posted by Vivian C. on

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve already decided you want to upgrade your halogen headlights to something brighter and more aesthetically pleasing. (If you have, feel free to skip this intro.) But in case you haven’t made up your mind just yet, let’s start by hitting all the points on LED headlights’ superiority. Simply put, quality LED headlights will give you more luminosity and have a longer lifespan. 

When properly installed, a good pair of LED headlights will last you up to 7 years due to its extreme energy efficiency, saving you the hassle of frequent bulb replacements. (In fact, if you took away all other headlight components, the actual LEDs themselves can last up to 50,000 hours – read more about LED headlight bulb lifespan  here!) 

Though stock halogen headlights vary in luminosity, strong LEDs can be up to 5 times brighter, making driving at night safer and less straining on your eyes. Last but not least, LED headlights simply look sexy - with their modern “crystal” appearance and often multiple eye-catching color options to choose from, LED headlights are the ultimate visual upgrade for your vehicle.

Now that we’ve given an overall LED headlight review, the next step is figuring out what your best LED headlight conversion kit is. Straight from the makers of FluxBeam, here is the breakdown of each kit in the top-selling FluxBeam series at  OPT-7...
