LED Tail Lights - Are They Brighter, Better-looking, Or Both?

wuzhuoming 28 Oct 2021 0件のコメント

One look through the Custom & Factory Tail lights section of our website will convince you there's no question that tail lights equipped with LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights boost the look of any car, pickup, SUV, or van. Once you consider that more time is spent looking at the rear of vehicles compared to the front, purchasing LED tail lights to create a memorable and unique look for its backside is simply money well spent.

For example, when you and others are walking toward your car while it's parked, you're usually admiring at the rear of it. Usually, that's all your neighbors will see of it in the driveway as well. And while other drivers on the road will see the front of your car only for a momentary glimpse, those travelling the same direction as you will spend much more time noticing the rear of it, especially if it's been customized so that it doesn't look like every other car on the road.

With a large variety of designs available to choose from, there's no argument LED tail lights add style. In this article, we'll discuss how they add function in addition to form. 

LEDs Boost Safety more details on

First introduced as tail lights on the 2000 Cadillac Deville, LEDs are particularly suited to use as brake lights because they have a faster rise time than traditional incandescent bulbs. That means LEDs reach full illumination 0.2 seconds faster than standard incandescent bulbs do. Those two-tenths of a second may not seem like much, but at 60 miles per hour it gives the driver behind you an extra 21 feet of stopping distance.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, that's enough to significantly reduce the odds of an accident at speed. If you were to stand behind a vehicle configured with incandescent brake light bulbs at the corners and LED bulbs in the center (third brake light), you would visibly notice the LED center bulbs light up faster than the corner ones when the brake pedal was pressed.

Tail Lamps With LEDs Also Make Economic Sense
Since LEDs are transistors coated with a substrate that emits light when current is applied, they generate more illumination per watt than traditional incandescent bulbs. Consequentially, they use only a fraction of the energy normal bulbs do. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs don't burn hot. Energy isn't wasted creating unnecessary heat, and the lack of heat buildup prevents plastic light cover assemblies from becoming degraded.

Additionally, because LEDs come sealed in moisture-proof casings, are extremely resistant to vibration, and do not get consumed during use, they typically last up to 60,000 hours. Compare that with a 2,000-hour lifespan for a typical incandescent bulb, and you'll realize tail lights with LEDs will probably last a lifetime once installed on your vehicle. Eliminated are hassles of frequent bulb replacements and tickets from police for non-working lights. It's hard to make a smarter purchase than this when it comes to car parts that add extreme levels of style AND function.

Clear vs. Black vs. Smoke Tail Lights 

Looking through our selection of tail lights and 3rd brake light assemblies, you'll frequently run across terms such as "black" or "smoke" in Product Options fields. These terms describe two different characteristics of the tail lamp assembly and because lens cover color and background bezel piece color are two separate things, it's possible for a product to be one or both.

Background bezel piece color 

A "black" tail light is one that has a black background (bezel piece) visible through a lens cover that's clear without any tint or red coloration. The size and quantity of lighting elements within the assembly determines how much "black" shows. Similarly, a "chrome" tail light is one with a chrome background bezel piece.

Lens cover color more details on 

When it comes to the color of the plastic lens cover itself, you'll see product choices such as " clear", “ amber”, " smoke", " red", and combinations separated by a slash bar such as "red/smoke". "Clear" means the lens cover has no coloration or tint at all to ensure the eye falls fully upon the design of the bezel piece beneath it. "Smoke" refers to a custom tail light assembly with a dark tinted lens cover. Most often, smoke tail lights are equipped with chrome background bezels because the greater reflective ability of chrome offsets brightness lost through the tinted cover piece. The amount of tinting determines how much light the lens cover blocks as well as how bright the chrome background appears to the eye.

"Red" tail light covers feature a heavy degree of red tinting on the lens cover for a more traditional look. Unlike smoke lens covers, red lenses are used in locations where the intended light output is red, whether the corresponding bulb is clear or red. "Combination" tail light lens covers may feature one section that's red, and another section that's colored completely different.

Left & Right Side LED Tail Lamp Sets
We sell LED tail light assemblies in pairs. While we can highlight only some of what you'll find in our section, we recommend a thorough look through each page of the LED tail light sets we offer. Among all the choices visible in the main section, you'll notice each product has a lead picture. However, those lead pictures you see are just one design of many choices that can be found behind them once a specific product page is opened. In fact, other designs often look totally different from the lead picture. So we recommend looking when you have some time to spend - because you won't want to stop once you've begun. 

If you prefer tail lights with a very dark smoke look, you'll probably like the selection of LED Tail Lights from LED Tail Lights, both with a nice variety of smoke lenses. And if you like background bezel pieces that display a lot of chrome, you may find some of these Custom Tail Lights designs pleasing. We also offer Custom Tail Lights that feature many clear-lens designs with a U-bar shape incorporated for style (which can be nicely paired with a similar set of U-bar headlamps). We also offers LED Tail Lights with bulbs lined up in different formations for some dazzling effects. 

Many of the LED tail lights we sell feature bulbs that flash amber when turn signals are activated. But for those that really appreciate the way classic European car tail lights had a separate, block-shaped amber section for turn signals, you'll find such designs among the choices on Spec-D's LED Tail Lights page. We even have side marker light assemblies with LEDs from IPCW (known as Upper Quarter Lights) fitted for Chevy and GMC full-size SUVs. 

Tail Lights With Fiber Optics 

Gaining popularity on newer high-end luxury cars are tail light assemblies equipped with fiber optic cables which look, on close inspection, similar to small neon tubes. They're actually optical fibers made from thin strands of glass, and they become illuminated along their entire length once a source of light attached at the end (usually an LED bulb) is illuminated. As entire tubes glow, a neon-like aura is emitted - without the drawbacks of neon lights. You'll see lights like this described as "fiber optic tail lights". 

Third Brake Light Assemblies With LEDs 

Third brake light assemblies, also known as Center High Mounted Stop Lamps (CHMSL), have been mandatory on all new passenger cars sold in the United States since model year 1986 and all new light trucks since model year 1994. Twelve months after initial implementation, a late-1986 study showed cars equipped with third brake lights had a 15% lower rear-end hit rate than those without. Add in the faster illumination time of today's LED lights and you're looking at reducing your chance of being struck from behind even more.

In our Third Brake Light page, you'll find a number of stylish replacement third brake light assemblies equipped with built-in LED bulbs. While we'll leave it up to you to choose one among the wide choice of designs, we can say all of the assemblies are designed to fit and connect as easily as original equipment. Many of the third brake lights come with additional white LED bulbs that can be switched on when it's necessary to illuminate the area immediately behind your vehicle in the dark. 

We posed a question at the start of this article: are LED tail lamps and brake lamps only about function, or are they all about style? Like that old TV spoof that said "it's a floor wax! No, it's a dessert topping!", the answer is that LED tail lamp assemblies are both. You can easily justify that purchase of the beautiful LED lamps you've wanted, secure in knowing that you're also making your ride more visible to those behind you.
