Common LED headlights color temperature
The color temperature of more mainstream LED headlights is basically 4300K, 5000K, 5500K, 6000K, 6500K. Others such as 3000K and 5800K are also available.
How to distinguish between cold light and warm light?
"True pure white" does not exist in nature, it is a pure ideal white light, and its name is "equal energy white light". After measurement, we know that the color temperature of this "equal energy white light" is 5455K, so the industry almost always uses 5500K color temperature bulbs to "approximately simulate" this "ideal pure white light".
Since the light with the color temperature of 5455K is called "ideal pure white light", the light with the color temperature higher than 5455K is "cold light", blue in white, and the higher the color temperature, the more blue, and finally purple. Then the color temperature is lower than 5455K is "warm light", white through yellow, and the lower the color temperature, the more yellow, and finally red.
The penetrating power of different LED headlights is different?
The lower the color temperature, the higher the light penetration performance, so the better the penetration in rainy, foggy and sandy days. On the contrary, the higher the color temperature, the worse the light penetration performance, and the penetration power is insufficient in rainy, foggy and sandy days.
Therefore, the right color temperature is one of the core points of buying headlights. As mentioned above, the higher the color temperature, the easier it is for manufacturers to make it brighter. But the color temperature cannot be increased indefinitely! Although the "theoretical pure white" is 5455K, the color temperature of the real surface of the sun is actually slightly higher than 5455K. Scientists from various countries have repeatedly determined that the precise color temperature of the surface of the sun is 5778K-the most natural color temperature.
