you replace a halogen headlight with an ordinary headlight?
is possible to replace a halogen headlight with an ordinary headlight,
but only if the halogen headlamp is a sealed beam. Halogen headlights
with interchangeable bulbs only accept halogen bulbs. There is a trade-off
to consider; ordinary sealed beam headlights cost less than halogen
sealed beams, but they are not as bright.
lights are about 40% brighter than conventional incandescent lights.
Light output is measured in units called lumens, which is a more accurate
measure than candlepower. Conventional incandescent bulbs give off 15
to 18 lumens per watt. Halogens produce 20 to 25 lumens per watt, extending
average headlight range 200 feet further down the road. Halogen light
is whiter, which also aids visibility.
filament in a halogen bulb is thinner and burns hotter. They are called
halogen bulbs because of the gas mixture used to fill the glass; halogen
plus krypton, argon and/or nitrogen. The gas mixture conducts heat away
from the filament to prevent it from burning out. Halogen helps redeposit
microscopic particles of tungsten that boil off the filament back onto
the filament. This extends filament life and prevents bulb darkening
