NINEO H11 Halogen Headlight Bulbs

Overall Best

NINEO surprised us with their H11 Halogen bulb’s awesome brightness, a high tech cooling setup, and overall great performance. The bulbs were easy to install and offer better throw, color, and intensity than stock.

NINEO’s H11 Halogen bulbs offer more light, brighter light, and whiter light than stock. In technical terms, these bulbs achieved a lux rating of 4820lx in a low beam configuration and a whopping 6490lx for high beams, resulting in 83% more light than stock bulbs. 

The brightness also got a decent boost to 5540 lumens, reasonably better than most alternatives.

What that means for the average consumer is massively improved down road visibility, a wider field of view, and ultimately a safer drive. In our testing, the throw of these bulbs was quite a bit farther than the stock ones. 

We had an easier time of making out obstacles and pedestrians in the distance, which helped our reaction time in responding to such situations.

If you are looking to add that pure white look to your headlights, the NINEO delivers an unprecedented 6140k temperature, as per our testing. Not only does this white color look cool, but it also makes a legitimate difference in the driving experience, enabling better visibility and clarity. 

One concern is that the color is a bit too white, unsuitable for use in snowy conditions, where a warmer tint would be more effective.

Finally, if durability and cooling are major concerns, the NINEOs stay as cool as the cool white color they produce. Utilizing a coverless dual ball bearing fan that can get up to 12,000 rotations per minute, and a copper core thermal heatsink, these bulbs keep temperatures manageable, lengthening the lifespan long term.

Pros
  • Improved visibility
  • Wider field of view
  • Cooler white color
  • Significantly more light than stock
  • 1 year warranty
  • Great cooling
  • Long lasting
  • Brighter than stock
  • Adaptable for light type
  • 360 degree lighting angle
  • Halogen bulb
  • Superior brightness
Cons
  • Not the brightest bulbs

BIOLIGHT KM – H11 HYPER PLUS

Best Budget

Biolight delivers a budget friendly headlight bulb that is a better option than your stock setup. While it’s not the brightest bulb on this list, it does have just enough Kelvins to hang with the big boys. The improved field of view also goes a long way in compensating for the dimmer bulb, which is still quite a bit brighter than stock.

Biolight improves the brightness of your headlights and helps make the road more visible. Alongside the improved whiteness, the brighter light is great for use in both city centers and highways. Our testing showed that the driver is much more likely to notice unexpected changes on the road surface with these in place of the stock setup.

The Kelvin color is white enough to dramatically change up the look of your car’s front end. If you’re looking to get that cool xenon look, the Biolight is a fine option that gets you close enough without costing an arm and a leg. In our experience, this bulb offers the whitest color in reflective style headlights as opposed to projectors.

Another commendable feature of this bulb is the ease of installation. It took us just 5 minutes a side to prep, install, and start using these bulbs. Even without professional help, these bulbs are dead simple to fit into your headlights.

Pros
  • Xenon white
  • Will fit any car due to it’s small size
  • Compatible with all vehicles
  • Brighter than stock
  • Attractive white color
  • Wide field of view
  • Better nighttime visibility
  • Easy to install
  • Improved front end look
  • Budget friendly option
Cons
  • Not compatible with cars built in the late eighties

SEALIGHT H11 Halogen Bulbs

Premium Choice

SEALIGHT’s take on H11 Halogen bulbs deserves praise for offering improved brightness, better road coverage, and effortless installation.

The first thing that we noticed was the superior brightness and the much cooler white color they offer. Besides adding to the look, they improve nighttime visibility. The farther throw is also appreciated for use on long highway stretches. 

Wider coverage brings the roadside into better view, making the driver more aware of their surroundings and avoid any unexpected obstacles or wild animals. Combined with the brighter light, the wider field of view on this bulb is great for use on cars that are primarily used in the countryside. 

Whiteness is another of the SEALIGHT’s strong suits. At 6000k, the Kelvin, this bulb is pure white, great for illuminating the road and highlighting hindrances. Furthermore, the style these lights bring to your cars front end is unmatched.

 One slight drawback we thought of was the cost. To achieve a uniform look on both low beams and high plus fog lights, the cost of bulbs can be quite high. 

Fit and compatibility are major concerns for most people. SEALIGHT seems to have cracked the code though, with their H11 Halogen bulbs. Installing these is simple and intuitive, requiring minimal experience and tools. 

The plug housing is identical to stock, making the install smooth and quick. As Halogen conversion kits go, this is the easiest to get up and running.

Pros
  • Brighter than stock
  • 6000k pure white color
  • Wider field of view
  • Improved visibility
  • Simplest install process
  • Compatible with many vehicles
  • +270% brighter than standard stock bulbs
  • 12000lm Luminous Flux
  • 24-month warranty
Cons
  • Can be expensive to upgrade full front lighting
