The only problem i've seen with these is they tend to kill the beam pattern of the headlight,instead of a nice refined beam usually you get LIGHT EVERYWHERE! great for the driver but horrible for oncoming traffic.

is the battery new?
Overvoltage can happen if battery is near EOL.

Plus, try another brand: i used to buy low cost H7 which lasted some months, now i use only Bosch (which includes UV filter) and lasts much more.

If someone could make a retrofit led headlight bulb that gives the same beam pattern as the original incandescent/halogen then i'd have no problems. to me the brighter the better when it comes to night driving. My old cop car has hi-wattage halogens (80w low/100w high) they give TONS of light without blinding everyone because they still have the same pattern as the original. BTW. there isn't any moisture in your headlights? 'cause that'll kill bulbs in no time

Is it really rated at 12V 80W? If yes, it’s quite horrible.
These multi-sided fat LED bulb does not focus properly with the reflector system, basically spilling light everywhere without a proper lightbeam.
These bulbs probably won’t get pass the vehicle examination too.
I have a pair of H4 LED headlight bulb that gives the same light pattern as the halogen bulb, but it is 3 times more expensive than your type.

No more cheapy crappy Chinese junk, please.

80 chinese watts. 80 actual watts from an LED would require a beefy heat sink. These are no more than a few watts. Even that power in this small form factor would drastically reduce the lifespan, but even a measly 500 hours translates to 30,000 miles of highway driving.

I would never ever use that thing because of the mentioned beam pattern.

On my 1997 Volvo I‘ve got halogen headlights with a glass diffusor, this is almost unbreakble, just there the reflector will start to rust little and light output starts to decrease. On my other car, there are Xenon headlights, and I really prefer these Xenon lights more than halogen.

Yep to be honest if it was me I would stick to Halogen, but my brother is thick as pigs**t he rather listen to idiots who dont know their A**e to their Elbow, also fitting LED lamps in Vehicle Lights which are designed for Filament/Halogen Lamps will invalidate the MOT (Ministry Of Transport) Certificate, as I kept warning him, but again he thinks he knows better, so he has these Lamps fitted, and he will have to learn the hard way.

Anyway I did a Electrical measurement of this Lamp on a 12 volt Battery and Electronic Ammeter and was getting only 0.1 amps or 100 milliamps so calculating 12 volts by 100 milliamps it males this lamp being 1.2 watts OK if this lamp is rated at 100 Lumens per watt this would be 120 Lumens. no where near as bright as a proper 55w H7 Halogen Lamp which gives 2300 Lumens. he may as well drive with just his side Lights on

There are automotive halogen lamps exists which promise you 30% whiter and brighter light, but at the expense of lifespan. Don't buy them. Buy only the regular halogen lamps.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

"this lamp being 1.2 watts"
100 lumens/watt is very generous, and doesn't typically include the driving circuitry, of which will likely be a single dropper resistor here. 50-80lm/w is more typical of a random chinese gadget, and you're burning ~30% of the power in the resistor, so based on 100mA I doubt this is much over 50lm

"I would never ever use that thing because of the mentioned beam pattern."

Even with the worst reflector design, 50 lumens isn't gonna blind anyone. This is a light level akin to parking lights.

I'm starting to think that they stating the watts of the LEDs only without including the driver losses and hence the very high figures. These lamps have similar figures to CFLs.

In some places it is against the law to use modified headlights because of the risk of blinding other drivers. Also you're either buying the cheapo halogen budget grade headlamps or your alternator is putting out to much voltage. If you want to use LED, see if your car manufacturer produces an aftermarket headlight assembly designed for LED. Try to stick with halogen. The colour of halogen is much better on the eyes of others in front of you. Theres no issue using LED in the brake and tail lights and the turning signal but make sure its the right kit, some cars have sensors that detect EOL lamps and the blinker will tick faster or wont stay on if it thinks theres an EOL lamp because the LED doesn't have a load

I like LED light for tail lights, turn signals, reverse lights and interior but absolutely do not like them for headlights and honestly as much as I love HID lighting, I wouldn't use those as headlights either... from what I see most are junk or dead right out of the package. I do a lot of aftermarket installs for people and a backyard mechanic as well, and almost every time someone brings me HID's to "upgrade" their headlights, they bring junk EBay units that "were a deal for $30.00" and then I end up uninstalling them a week later so they can be returned... the last time I went to install HID headlights/fog lights on a WRX for a friend, 2 out of 4 (either ballasts or lamps) were dead right out of the box and the owner was pretty disappointed because he had just spent $100 on the set when he could have bought decent quality halogens for less than that... and the worst is when people want to stuff HID lamps inside reflector housings that were designed for halogen lamps I stick with halogen lamps for my headlights and once I install them usually don't worry about them for a long time

I don't think that the electricity system of the car operates from the alternator when the car engine works.

yes vehicle electrical systems do not require the Battery, the battery is there to start the vehicle, once the engine is running, the alternator, then runs the electrical system. or is used if you break down and you operate the hazard warning lights, you can also operate other electrical equipment but will drain the battery a lot quicker. also once you engine is running you can actually remove the Battery completely as the alternator will run the vehicle, as I have done this myself when swapping a fully charged battery for a dead one.

The alternator is here to charge the battery, not to run the vehicle electricity system once the engine is started. The reason for the voltage brownout in the vehicle during the engine starting, is because the starter takes a lot of power from the battery, causing a reduce in voltage during the engine starting.

dor123, when engine has started, everything is under alternator load, included battery: in older systems battery acts also as voltage regulator (so, old battery = low regulation = highter than expected voltage = low lamp life)

say that the battery provides around 12v '5 more or less. with the car running, it goes up to 14v'4 if the alternator is in good condition. everything that involves spikes in tension is bad for the lamps. It is also true that the 100w rally lamps can only be put into metal parabolas. in new cars the parabola will burn. for that it is better to use more supercharged lamps, although they last less.

It is true . Lamps like Phillips Xtreme Vision provides up to 150 / more light. the useful life is lower than a standard. but in return you have enough light. My father has his original lights of 1992 in a golf mk3 has many hours of use. but they do not illuminate anything next to extreme vision
