Materials & Quality

Fahren 9005/HB3 LEDs are made of aluminum, which makes them extremely durable. Aluminum is lightweight, quickly withdraws heat, and does not corrode or rust. Fahren uses aviation-grade aluminum to ensure the lasting service and excellent durability of its product. The LED chips used in the LED bulbs by Fahren easily withstand vibration, and temperature changes and are completely waterproof.

Do Fahren 9005/HB3 LEDs require a load resistor?

Both yes and no. 95% of US-built cars, trucks, and SUVs work perfectly fine with LEDs installed. However, certain vehicles require an extra load resistor for these bulbs to ensure CAN-bus compatibility. So, the chances are high that your Fahren 9005/HB3 bulbs will work without errors and extra modifications.

Fahren 9005/HB3 LEDs


What about cooling?

A heatsink is the bulb’s rear part that helps eliminate extra heat produced by the LED chip when the bulb works. Older LED bulbs used to have large heatsinks, making the headlight bulb design less compact than the halogen bulbs. As a result, these LEDs were quite difficult to install, as bulbs did not fit right into the housing. So, people had to alter headlights and cut rubber sealing to fit their new bulbs properly.

These times have passed, and now Fahren LEDs are very compact and the shape is very close to the shape of the factory halogen light bulbs. So, the installation is just plug-and-play. The cooling fan of the new Fahren 9005/HB3 LED bulbs makes 12.000 RPM to ensure quick and effective heat elimination. Besides, the body of the 9005/HB3 LED bulb is made of aluminum, and this material also cools down quickly.

How to adjust 9005/HB3 Fahren LED?

The designers at Fahren did their best to make sure their bulbs will adjust easily in the headlights of the US-built vehicles. So, every LED bulb features a 360-degree adjustable locker ring. It makes the headlight adjustment process easy, fast, and effective DIY procedure any car owner can do without extra help.

Diving Deeper: Specifications of HB3 Bulbs

Let’s break down the specifications and structure of the HB3 LED bulbs like a Lego tower, piece by piece:

  • Base. The base of the HB3 LED bulb, also known as 9005, is specially designed for automotive use. The design includes a 90-degree elbow, which helps in the alignment of the bulb when plugged into the headlight housing.
  • LED Chips. This is where the magic happens! LED chips are tiny light sources that emit bright light when electrical current flows through them. In HB3 bulbs, these chips are arranged strategically to maximize brightness while ensuring a focused beam pattern.
  • Heat Sink. LED chips can heat up faster than a cheetah on a racetrack. To combat this, HB3 LED bulbs come with a heat sink – usually an aluminum section at the base. This heat sink helps to dissipate heat effectively, ensuring that the bulb doesn’t become as hot as a barbecue grill.

Technical Specifications

  1. Wattage. Wattage measures the power consumption of the bulb. HB3 LED bulbs generally consume between 15 to 30 watts. This is much lower compared to their halogen counterparts, which can consume over 50 watts. What does this mean for you? Less power consumption and a happy car battery!
  2. Luminous Flux. Remember when we talked about lumens? Luminous flux measures the brightness and is expressed in lumens (lm). HB3 LED bulbs typically offer a luminous flux of around 1,000 to 2,000 lm. This is like having a miniature sun guiding your way on a dark road.
  3. Color Temperature. As mentioned earlier, color temperature is measured in Kelvins (K) and determines the hue of the light. A lower color temperature (around 3000K) is yellowish, while a higher color temperature (around 6000K) is a cool white. It’s like choosing the mood of your headlights.
  4. Beam Angle. The beam angle is the spread of light emitted by the bulb. HB3 LED bulbs are designed to have a focused beam, typically between 30 to 60 degrees. This ensures that the light is concentrated on the road ahead, not scattering around like confetti.
  5. Lifespan. HB3 LED bulbs are the marathon runners of the bulb world, with a lifespan of around 30,000 to 50,000 hours. In contrast, halogen bulbs are more like sprinters, with a lifespan of only around 1,000 hours.
  6. Canbus System Compatibility. Some vehicles have systems that monitor the headlights and indicate when a bulb is out. HB3 LED bulbs should be compatible with these systems to avoid any error messages on your dashboard. It’s like making sure the bulb and your car are speaking the same language.

The HB3 LED bulb is a marvel in automotive lighting with its bright and efficient LED chips, effective heat dissipation, and long lifespan. It’s like upgrading from a bicycle to a rocket when it comes to brightness and durability. However, ensure that the bulb is compatible with your vehicle’s headlight housing and electrical system.
