Tail Lights for Mazda B2300
When replacing the tail lights or the tail light assembly on your model vehicle, there are various options available to consider. Make sure to understand the unique characteristics of each of the options to make the optimal choice for your you and your Mazda when it comes to both safety and style.What types of tail lights are there for Mazda B2300?
Different varieties of tail lights are available, depending on the style that you want and other factors. The three most common are halogen, Xenon, and LED lights.
- Halogen - Halogen bulbs use a tungsten filament surrounded by a halogen gas inside of a glass container. When the filament heats up, some of the tungsten atoms are vaporized and combine with the halogen gas. However, when the light cools down, then the tungsten atoms are deposited back onto the filament, which helps to extend the lifespan of the light.
- Xenon - Lights that use Xenon gas are often referred to as High-Intensity Discharge tail lights. This design is well known for creating a bright long, range-beam that enables you to see far ahead, allowing you more time to be able to react to any potential obstacles in your path. Instead of the standard metal filament, these bulbs use an arc of electricity jumping between two electrodes. When the electricity arcs between the electrodes, the xenon gas in the enclosed space is vaporized, which then produces the bright light. These taillights must be made using special fused quartz instead of glass to contain the high pressures and temperatures created by this design.
- LED - The usefulness of LEDs (light emitting diodes) as tail lights is impressive given their high degree of energy efficiency and remarkably small size. These qualities make it possible for Mazda to creatively design cars to use these special bulbs.
Various factors need to be considered when replacing the tail light assembly. You should think about both the aesthetic appeal of the design that you want as well as its compatibility with the space that you have available. A simple and convenient way to quickly check compatibility is to see if the new part is certified by the Original Equipment Manufacturer, also known as the OEM. The OEM is the company that manufactured the original stock parts, so they can verify if the new parts are compatible with the stock parts that you want to use.
