Halogen lights have stuck around as perennial choices for external car lamps. Here are a few perks that come with using these tenured illuminators.

Long life – Halogen lamps are often heralded for their longevity. This is mainly because the lamps are manufactured using a much stronger glass, designed to withstand the extreme heat that comes with operating halogen lamps. Its filament burns a lot hotter than common incandescent bulbs.

Brighter light – Halogen lamps have also been renowned for their brightness. The level of their brightness is often compared to the intensity of sunlight itself; while absolutely improbable, it’s still enough to earn a comparison. Halogen lamps are also known to be one of the brightest ones available on the market.

Efficient – Halogens are great choices to illuminate a fairly large area. Halogens are recommended for these areas if they are of the IR-type. IR-type bulbs are specially fitted with a filter that reflects infrared light, causing a rather small 60-watt IR halogen to produce illumination comparable to a 90-watt traditional halogen or a 120-watt incandescent.

Control – With halogen bulbs, users are granted control of the amount of light if there is a dimmer control in the home switch or car dashboard. This is why halogens are perfect in creating lighting moods using the dimmer control as opposed to regular fluorescents or incandescent lamps.
