New Philips headlight brighter, whiter than halogen


The new Philips X-tremeUltinon LED headlights produce a brighter, bolder light that illuminates the road up to 200 percent brighter than traditional halogen headlights.

The 6500K artic white light is noticeably whiter and utilizes 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, Lumiled’s national sales manager for the Canadian aftermarket. “Canada is the perfect place to launch this brighter, bolder product line.”

The headlights last longer than traditional halogen options and Philips’ AirCool and Airflux Technology cools the headlights and fog lights allowing them to last longer than regular LEDs. They come with an IP65 enclosure that protects the lights and all components against dust and moisture.

Furthermore, 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.
