  • Quite possibly the best video I’ve ever seen about LEDs, how headlights work, and what doesn’t.

    Not sure if any of y’all caught this but...

    ive been a fan of “Headlight Revolution” s YouTube channel for about a year now. They mainly cover truck lights, but when they do their lighting/led upgrade videos... I was always very surprised with how on point they were.

    Recently they just just dropped this ‘truth about led headlight bulbs’ video. And damn, they got it right. Everything from the struggles we had from simply buying every design out there to test... to the differences in reflector to projector optics, and more.

    this is video should be stickied

      VERY informative! Thanks for posting. I been out of the lighting scene for over 5 years. Wasn't really sure what was current. This was immensely helpful.

        Yeah this HR video in particular is very newbie friendly while also being 100% on point with information and truthful statements. I dig it.

            I have been researching LED headlights for a number of years, merely as a curious hobbyist and car enthusiast, for my own knowledge and to share what I learn with friends. Headlight Revolution, while they seem to have accumulated a considerable amount of information about LED headlights and technology, their obvious tendency to possess heavy bias in most of their work is irritating. Particularly as HR tries to appear neutral all the while really trying to sell shit. Just saying, anyone trying to sell you something has a great incentive to skew information and too, like HR, they choose to be less than complete, for example, by failing to include, leaving out whole segments of the market like Chinese manufacturers of led products. That's all I have to say about that. Thanks

              And you are 100% correct.

                everyone has their own skew to any discussion. that doesn't make it any less relevant information. according to the bulb tests that many other members have performed here, he's correct in most of his technical information, and that's really where the value of this video is, as is any other video.

                chinese electronics suppliers in most cases are specifically set up as fly-by-night operations, where they push out a bunch of product under 'brand x', then 'close' before anyone can come to shut them down, reopen as 'brand y', rinse, repeat. so brand-wise, it's physically impossible to test every single brand available. by the time you get done with the current batch, you'll already be missing a few dozen new 'companies' offerings. the reality is that each company tends to follow a specific design pattern, and so it becomes unnecessary to test every single 'new' product under the sun, and then only the new visually viable offerings can be checked against the current best.

                      Well since this forum is a bit lonely, I'll take this as an excuse to reply to an old thread.

                      Climbing my way up the ladder of retrofitting knowledge I too tried a lot of crap and I too stumbled on HR's video. I then learnt some more stuff and more about HR. They do absolutely want to sell the product they stock. But instead of just making an ad they dress it up as an informational video. Often leaving out better options for the same money. I stopped taking their "informational" videos seriously a long while ago.
