You might have observed that neon lights have been used in bars, restaurants and billboards for years together. Using these lights in cars and trucks is not a new walk of life in auto industry, but at present that has become a latest style. Special neon lighting kits are available that can be attached under the body of the vehicle. These lights fitted beneath car illuminates under car and surrounding area giving your car a unique identity for others to attract towards it.
Though Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting system has come, neon lights still prevailing their charm in the market. Both lighting systems are having their own merits and demerits. Also, it is evident that one system cannot completely surpass the qualities of other system. But, since the lighting of these lights is much brighter than LED, people are more attracted towards neon lighting system for their cars.
If you are opting for LED lighting system for your car, single 2CL2FM is not sufficient to give bright color. To create equivalent intensity of neon, you need to have many diodes. There are varieties of shapes neon tubes are available that can even be used inside the car, under the dash or seat that provides different internal look. Generally these neon lights are sealed with an outer special plastic that protects the neon lights from dust and dirt. In general, people call these lights as ‘classic lighting’.
If you compare the lifespan of Light-Emitting Diodes with Neon lights, diodes lasts longer than these lights. But as far as price is concerned, these lights are cheaper than Light-Emitting Diodes. One of the advantages with the diodes is that these lights can be programmed to give a different color patterns where as same programming is not possible with these lights. In normal case using single color neon lights give more impact of appearance than using different colored Light-Emitting Diodes. One simple advantage with the neon lighting system is that it can be easily fixed to the car unlike these diodes. The limitation of neon lights is they give light slowly compared with Light-Emitting Diodes, but the energy withstanding capacity of neon light is much more than LED. This is the reason these lights are much brighter than LED.
Both Light-Emitting Diode and neon lights are available with built in transformers in the market. You can procure your desired kit from online market. The supplier provides you all necessary mounting hardware, wiring and necessary components to operate the kit and fully detailed installation instructions along with the lights. You can opt for an optional wireless remote control for these lights along with the kit. You can find a quality lighting system when each tube is made with maximum shock resistance material.
