When you’re shopping for lights, you’ll likely find yourself sifting through a few different options. You’ll find Halogen, LED, and CCFL. As you shop around you’re going to want to know what the differences are and which lights are right for you.
CCFL: Cold cathode fluorescent lights are the original technology behind halo lighting options. The design works much like the fluorescent light bulbs you find hanging in your garage or workshop. The real attraction to these lights is the halo of the halo headlights is one continuous unbroken light.
LED: If you were to stack LEDs up against CCFL lights you would have to be talking about halo lights. With LED halo headlights, the halo would be made of a bunch of LED bulbs making for a broken circle. They may not be as aesthetically appealing, but they certainly are brighter. LED bulbs can be used in place of the standard bulbs in the housings on your Challenger.
They are obviously much brighter than stock halogen options and come stock in some housings on Challengers since 2015. Though, depending on the laws in your state, they may be illegal in certain parts of the vehicle’s lighting system.
Halogen: Halogen bulbs are used in most of the housings in most third gen Challengers. With that being said, they aren’t as flashy or as bright as LEDs or CCFL lights, but they work just fine. You can purchase halogen bulbs that are brighter than stock, which is perfect for someone interested in brightening things up without investing in pricier options.
