LED Headlights

Philips new X-tremeUltinon LED headlights produce a brighter, bolder light that illuminates the road up to 200 percent brighter than traditional halogen headlights, delivering up to 6500 K arctic white light for high-end styling that is noticeably whiter.

The X-tremeUltinon LED headlights are equipped with Philips’ state of the art LED technology, a powerful bright light with superior light diffusion that puts the light precisely where drivers need it. The new products also have Safe Beam Technology, a uniform and accurate beam pattern with the right cut-off point to reduce nighttime glare.

“The new X-tremeUltinon LED headlights are a superior product with longer life and more durability that also brings a sense of style and sophistication to any vehicle,” said Chris McPhedran, National Sales Manager, Canadian Aftermarket, Lumileds. “Canada is the perfect place to launch this brighter, bolder product line.”

The X-tremeUltinon LED headlights last longer than traditional halogen headlights and are more durable than competing aftermarket LED headlights due to Philips’ AirCool and Airflux Technology that cools the headlights and fog lights. The products also have an IP65 enclosure that protects the lights and all components against dust and moisture.

Additionally, CANbus adapter kits are available to eliminate any flickering of the LED modules that can occur with today’s modern electrical systems. The adapters also turn off any dashboard “MIL light” warnings that can be triggered when converting to LED. These kits are virtually plug and play, and are installed between the LED HL conversion kit and the vehicle’s bulb harness.

Philips currently offers six SKUs including 9005, 9006, 9012 H4, H7 and H11 applications, which are compatible with many vehicle models.
