      Effective heat dissipation

      Thanks to the dual heat-dissipation mechanism - built-in fan and an aluminum heat sink - these LED headlight bulbs disperse heat more effectively and efficiently.  They perform at their highest level of brightness for a longer period of time.

      Improved visibility

      The uniform, accurate beam pattern lets you see and be seen more clearly. Not only will you be able to spot obstacles faster and drive with more confidence, you'll avoid blinding other drivers with dangerous glare, making everyone safer on the road.

      Compact all in one design

      Philips Ultinon Essential LED uses a brand-new bulb design that integrates the driver-box electronics into the body, allowing more space for the bulb in the headlamp and making fitting easy.
