Do you need a ballast for LED headlights?
Click to see full answer
Herein, why do LED headlights need a ballast?
A ballast turns your battery's power into the right kind of juice for LEDs. Most vehicles are engineered to deliver power to halogen lights, not LEDs. LEDs require less power than a traditional halogen light but requires it be delivered in a unique way.
Secondly, is an LED driver the same as a ballast? The real answer here is that LEDs use a driver, which does many of the same things as a ballast but operates much more effectively. An LED driver is an electrical device which regulates the power to an LED light. It has the capacity to regulate power to a single LED Light or strings of LEDs.
Likewise, people ask, do you need a conversion kit for LED headlights?
Headlight conversion kits Headlights usually come with the ballasts, heat sinks and necessary wiring adapters, which means they're already sold as conversion kits. One of the biggest challenges with a headlight conversion kit is physically ensuring the LED bulb will fit inside the housing.
Are LED bulbs self ballasted?
The LED Bulb, LED Lamp, and other LED Lights are self ballasted using LED energy saving green technology which is environmentally friendly and energy efficient. Please do not use florescence light bulbs. They contain mercury which is dangerous and unhealthy for the environment.
