About bicycle light


HID (High Intensity Discharge) gas discharge bulb, also known as xenon lamp, has high luminous efficiency (about 50 lumens for 1W); it was originally used as a lighting for sports fields, and later used by cars to replace traditional halogen lamps. Due to its high illumination (about three times that of halogen lamps) and low power consumption (about half of a typical halogen bulb), the life span can reach 2.000~3.000 hours, and it is gradually transplanted to bicycle lights. HID can be said to be used. It is currently the brightest choice for bicycle lights, but it is expensive, mainly for professional players and mountain adventure enthusiasts who need strong lighting.

LED (Light Emitting Diode) is an electronic component that converts electrical energy into light energy. It also has the characteristics of a diode, that is, it has a positive pole and a negative pole. The LED will only emit light when it is energized from the positive pole, so it is given a tributary. The LED will illuminate steadily when it is powered, and if it is connected to AC, the LED will flash. It is often used on the indicator light and display panel at the beginning, and is also used as illumination with the appearance of white light emitting diodes. In addition to its high efficiency (about 60 lumens for 1W), long life (about 50,000 to 100,000 hours), low damage, low temperature and moderate price, the most important thing is that it also has energy and mercury. The advantages of environmental protection, therefore known as the new source of the century, is also the mainstream of bicycle lights.
