Important information for customers who want to replace just one lamp
As the luminous color and light efficiency of xenon changes over time, old xenon bulbs are different from new ones. (Source: Philips, the inventors of the xenon lamp).
The reasons for this are that:
Xenon bulbs are in fact gas-discharge lamps, which are filled with a gas mixture. Their characteristics depend on the gas density of the xenon bulb. Over time, some gas always escapes from the xenon bulb, thereby changing the color temperature and the light efficiency. In other words, as the lamp gets older, its luminous color becomes bluer and its light efficiency is reduced.
That’s why we, and all xenon car lamp manufacturers, recommend always replacing xenon bulbs in pairs.
