Even though the initial cost to purchase automotive LED lights is a bit expensive, it actually saves you money in several different ways. LED lights are made from solid materials that make them highly durable and almost indestructible. LED lights are energy efficient and long-lasting — it means they cost about 80% less and last 25 times longer than other types of lighting.
The useful life of LED lighting products is defined differently than that of other light sources. LEDs typically do not “burn out” or fail. Instead, they experience ‘lumen depreciation’, wherein the brightness of the LED dims slowly over time. LED “lifetime” is established on a prediction of when the light output decreases by 30 percent.

LED light bulbs also have a lifespan that is by far the longest of any light bulb available today. In fact, most LED light bulbs are rated at 50,000 to 100,000 hours! This means that an LED light bulb could be left on continuously for more than a decade before dimming! Do LED lights save money? Indeed, they do.
