Why buy Philips Ultinon Essential LED H7 (Twin)?

Combining incredible style with brilliant value for money, the Philips Ultinon Essential range offers a terrific choice for drivers wanting impeccable LED lighting without breaking the bank. The Philips Ultinon Essential range of headlight bulbs projects a bold, bright and hugely stylish white light with a colour temperature of up to 6500K.

This miraculously high colour temperature (or 'Kelvin rating') ensures not only a vivid, modern white light, but also amplifies your presence on the road to other vehicles, so you can drive with added style at no cost to safety and comfort. Similarly, with Philips' precise bulb design and world-beating engineering skills, the Ultinon Essential range guarantees a precise beam projection, perfectly placed on the road ahead so as to provide optimal lighting and avoid dazzling others on the road.

By choosing an LED car bulb range made by a universally renowned brand such as Philips, you avoid the many risks and pitfalls of buying inferior-quality, cheap LED headlight bulbs. Where many LED bulbs promise an intense light, they often fail to deliver, and their poor design can mean a very short lifespan and even a dangerously misplaced beam. The Philips Ultinon Essential is designed with Automotive-Grade Quality materials and follows the strictest quality-control procedures to ensure a bulb with a strong light, precise projection and long life up to around 1500 hours.

The long lifespan of the Ultinon Essential range is ensured by Philips' innovative bulb design, which includes a built-in fan and aluminium heatsink with anodising coating, allowing heat to be dispersed efficiently, thereby extending lifespan. This heat-resistance, along with the Ultinon Essential's durable build, means that you can enjoy a strong, bright white 6500K light for far longer than a standard halogen bulb.

Alongside this the Ultinon Essential LED bulbs boast a sturdy, compact design for improved durability, which includes built-in driver box electronics, for a simple plug-in-play fitting. Not only that, the Philips Ultinon Essential range is compatible with 12V and 24V electrical systems, and comes with optional connector rings to ensure an easy, safe fit to the widest range of car models as possible.

For the best LED technology at the best price, try the Philips Ultinon Essential range of car headlight bulbs today.

PLEASE NOTE: These headlight bulbs do not have ECE approval and are currently not approved for use on public roads: their usage is limited to ‘off-road’ applications. In addition, their installation may trigger a bulb error message to appear on the vehicle's on-board computer system / dashboard. This is a harmless side-effect of the low-wattage LED bulbs not being recognised by the vehicle's CANbus system and can be solved with the installation of an additional Philips Canbus Adapter

Philips Ultinon Essential LED H7 (Twin)

5 Unbelievable Impeovement

Huge improve the for evening and night driving. I couldn’t find any information on whether the VW Polo needed adapter discs, so ended up refashioning the original bracket slightly. Third car we have done and first that didn’t need a CANBUS connection as well. I now have a spare.

5 Love these LED h7's

These bulbs when l 1st fitted them didn't seem very bright in my projector headlights, but l was getting a few flashes from other motorists so removed them and did my best (working blind) to install vertical (as read on forums). Wow the difference is immense, now pure white with a cut off line with 99% shinning on the road ahead...and no flashes from other motorists ????

5 Very happy

After first buying some cheap (£13) H7 LED from eBay and finding the beam pattern was non existent and the FM radio interference was horrendous when switched on. I then purchased these Philips and they are superb! great beam pattern, plenty of light output and absolutely no FM radio interference when switched on. Very happy with these and would highly recommend. Also got a 20% discount on them!

5 Adequate light and good cut-off line

My car is using reflector headlight assembly. I’m fairly impressed with its hotspot and cutoff line, they’re basically the same as halogen from those two aspects but brighter so no worries of blinding incoming traffic. It also has a small profile that easily snaps into the socket. This is a good buy and value for money.

5 Best value LED headlights available

I've been looking at LED headlights for sometime but was put off by the price, then i found these for half the price. Great Philips quality but at a better value price. I had diamond visions before, these give a whiter light plus extra visibility (something that cant be said for the Diamond vision bulbs). well worth the money, easy to fit and i had no issues.
