30w Active Cooling LED Headlights - $50.59

Deal Link:
Price:
$50.59
LEDs don't burn out like HIDs. They also maintain their colour temperature throughout their lifespan. You don't have to wait for your headlights to warm up and they're much more durable and rugged than traditional headlights. If you're looking for a very bright pair of headlights then these are great. I've used them for a few months now and they have been much more reliable than using HID lights.

Here are some listings for these types of lights:

30W - Integrated Ballast - H4, H4-3, HB2, 9003, H7, H8

it looks good but more reliable than using HID lights ??? sure led don't burn out but the cheap ballast will. ballast is always the weak part i have been using h.i.d for 5 years now never burned a bulb but ballast i did

Not sure. I've gone through many HID bulbs and ballasts but I've never had the money to use any of the high-end stuff.

They're brighter than 35w HIDs or 55w halogens.

Indeed brighter.
About 1 year ago, I installed the first model from your list into a few cars. Everybody is delighted. Especially owners of older Subarus (these had very poor, unreliable headlights).

Note that the «ballast» (actually a «LED driver») is not really integrated. It's a separate module, but minuscule compared to an HID ballast.
However, I would never install models without active cooling. The #1 enemy of LEDs is heat, so: summer heat + engine heat means use active cooling.

Don't these things have bad beam patterns due to necessary design or have the new ones overcome that?

Iunno I wanna try a set of H11 for my BMW foglights. I have already custom programmed my light module to accept LED's without canbus so I have a plug and play setup.

What seller do you recommend?

Yes these will have worse cutoff and beam pattern than even PnP HID bulbs.
Enjoy paying for worse performance.

Hmm, any reason to go with internal compared to external? I'd probably guess that the external ones run cooler.

The external ones are better if the space behind your headlight housing is tight because you can save a few centimeters of space. Other than that there's not much of a difference. The LED headlamps with internal LED drivers are advertised as a newer design with the passively cooled ones being even newer.

As an car enthusiast that retrofit headlights as a hobby/addiction and an active member on hidplanet. These are junk compared to OEM hids. If you look at cars that come with led headlights from the factory, they have massive heatsinks on them and are usually actively cooled. Even then, not many of them are better than regular hid projectors.

Would these work for cars that have the high beams as DRLs?

My vague understanding is that for headlights and brake lights, overseas LED bulbs are not vetted by the government as safe and acceptable safety equipment. If you get into an accident with 'modified' safety equipment on your car, it can be argued that your modification altered the visibility of your vehicle and that YOU are completely responsible, and possibly criminally so. The LED ones for sale at Canadian Tire or Napa or wherever are hugely expensive, but also likely acceptable.
