LED Lighting - The Best All-Around Solution

Posted by David on

The tried and true incandescent light bulbs that have been commonplace for so many years are giving way to LED lighting solutions that offer greater safety, styling and efficiency. In the simplest terms, a light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it. Light is produced when electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence, and the color of the light, corresponding to the energy of the photon, is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. For example, use of the semiconductor indium gallium nitride (InGaN) produces blue, green and ultraviolet high-brightness LEDs.

Enough of the science lesson. Let's talk about the advantages LED lighting offers over conventional incandescent lighting and why they are such an attractive solution for automotive use:

Insensitive to vibration

Super long life

Impervious to harsh environments

Instantaneous illumination

Extremely compact

Can produce different colors

Cool operation

Produce more light per supplied watt than incandescent bulbs

The first use of LEDs in an automotive application, was on the 1984 Corvette, in a high-mount brake light. The rationale was that since LEDs illuminate instantaneously, they would be ideal for a stop lamp application. Is there a real difference between the illumination time of an LED to an incandescent bulb? Not a lot. In fact the difference is only about 0.2 seconds, however, at 75 miles per hour this translates into 21 feet of extra braking distance for the vehicles behind.

WeissLicht Spektrum LED Turn Signal Bulbs

The first error free, LED turn signal bulbs for BMW vehicles that do not use resistors. Bright and reliable with a lifetime warranty. Only from WeissLicht.

WeissLicht Spektrum LED signal bulbs adopt a revolutionary design that allows for LED bulbs to be even more powerful than OEM bulbs, without overheating or causing error codes. With these concealed and reliable bulbs installed, you'll create a unique identity that reflects your personality and illuminates every drive.

Features and Benefits Of This Product

Spektrum bulbs from WeissLicht feature sophisticated characteristics that make them the first bulbs that are ERROR FREE in most vehicles. No additional components such as error cancelers, wiring or custom sockets are required (in some sensitive vehicles a small resistor pack is provided). All you usually need is just the bulb - simply INSTALL and GO!

Error Free Operation (no additional components required)

Up to 3X brighter than OEM amber bulbs (amber version)

Up to 8X brighter than OEM white bulbs (white version)

Specifically Designed to work with your BMW lenses, sockets and onboard computer

Lifetime Warranty! Simply put, it's the last bulb you'll need to buy.

WeissLicht LED Switchback Signal Bulbs

WeissLicht Spektrum Switchback bulbs adopt a revolutionary design that creates an ultra-bright amber signalling/white parking light bulb. White when on, orange when blinking for a clean, modern effect.

Spektrum bulbs from WeissLicht feature characteristics that make them the first bulbs that are completely ERROR FREE! No additional components such as error cancelers, wiring or custom sockets are required. All you need is the bulb; simply INSTALL & GO! (Please note that there are rare cases where add on resistor packs are required on very sensitive vehicle systems).

Error Free Operation (no additional components required)

Up to 8X brighter than OEM white bulbs (white version)

Specifically Designed to work with your BMW lenses, sockets and onboard computer

Lifetime Warranty! Simply put, it's the last bulb you'll need to buy.

Spektrum uses one of the most powerful and compact 5 watt LED light sources available on the market today. It is even more powerful than competitors LEDs of the same wattage. Made by CREE Japan. Built-In Signal Delay Circuit - When our bulbs start to flash amber for signalling, they do not turn to white parking lights until the signal cycle is complete by allowing for a longer delay than a signal flashing sequence. This prevents the bulb from turning white between signals.

WeissLicht Illustro MAX LED Headlight/Fog Light Bulb

Introducing the pinnacle in headlight LED brightness and innovation! Designed to be super compact, fanless, completely weatherproof and ultra-bright using a line shaped pattern of LED for maximum on-road projection.

WeissLicht is known as a top designer of BMW LED lighting, including industry leading Spektrum turn/reverse/fog bulbs, Gold Series Interior Bulbs and Weisslicht Halo bulbs. With this latest version of the Illustro headlight bulb, WeissLicht has achieved brightness beyond standard headlights and even some HID Xenon headlamps, in many vehicles. This is the brightest bulb available on the market for headlights and foglights.

BRIGHTEST ON-ROAD PROJECTION

Maximum brightness is achieved with a special array of LUMILEDS from Philips. This line array achieves the brightest possible output onto the road in a bulb to this day. Utilizing the reflector in a convention headlamp is difficult for LEDs, no matter how bright they appear on paper. LUMENS OUTPUT DOES NOT MATTER if you cannot utilize the headlamp reflector. Not to mention, on paper, these bulbs are also the brightest we've tested.

Arranging the LEDs in a line achieves the longest throw onto the road, solving the issue while projecting a strong horizontal line onto your path. Philips spent millions researching this for their own bulbs, and we take advantage of it here for a fraction of the cost.

COMPACT & REVERSIBLE

Without a doubt the component of the Illustro MAX bulbs are compact, with short cables and a tiny electronics pack, but what is truly unique is the reversible cooling fins that transform simply by unscrewing a set screw and removing the fins, then putting them on upside down. This is an advantage over other bulbs with cooling fins, because it allows you to fit the bulb into places where they may be a protrusion blocking the installation.

REVERSIBLE HEAT SINK

The cooling fins on these bulbs are already the smallest total area, compared to other bulbs, while adding superior cooling ability, but the reversible system provides more installation possibilities.

We understand that in some cases you need ultimate flexibility when installing a bulb. For example, with the F30 halogen headlamp - and this is why Illustro also offers FLEX bulbs, with a braided flex belt and narrow body for the tightest of spaces, while still offering ample illumination.

WeissLicht Illustro FLEX LED Headlight/Fog Light Bulb

Introducing a new concept in LED headlight and fog light bulb technology from WeissLicht. Designed to be super compact, fanless, completely weatherproof and ultra-bright, Illustro is simply the best all round headlight/fog light on the market.

WeissLicht is recognized as a leader in BMW LED lighting, including Spektrum turn/reverse/fog bulbs and Weisslicht Halo bulbs. The philosophy at WeissLicht is not to hit the market FIRST, but to carefully consider the needs of BMW owners and produce market ready products that are the BEST.

Designed from the ground up. Dropping all conventions in bulb design including aluminum bodies, moving parts (fan cooling), large multi fin-cooling and ballasts. The final product is a sleek, light weight, perfectly fitting, ultra-compact, super-cool, ultra-bright bulb.

Slightly brighter than CCFL technology

We currently offer the NEW Weisslicht Halo Rings in LED and New HD-120 LED. They are also available in White or Amber for some vehicles. What makes Weisslicht Ring better than the competition?

Ring Size: The WeissLicht LED kit is the first kit on the market for E46 using any technology to utilize two different sized rings. Four standard-sized rings are used on halogen headlights, while two different sized rings are used on the Xenon light. This provides a much nicer - more integrated - look when off. The Khoalty & MyCarr kits use the same (smaller) sized ring for all four lights. For cars with all-Halogen headlights, we have a kit that features the larger sized ring for all four lights. Choose that at the time of ordering to get the best look for your halogen headlight!

LED Size/Quantity: The WeissLicht CLEAR kit has 66 (small ring) or 78 (large ring) High power LEDs, and NEW High Definition kits with 120 LED on each ring! WeissLicht FROSTED kits have either 42 LEDs and a frosted/ribbed lens for a uniform look. The FROSTED kit also features an inner chrome reflector for increased brightness and an outer chrome ring that is visible when lights are off.
