A Great Debate: What Head Lamps are Best?
Vehicle parts and systems have come a long, long way since trucks were first invented by Daimler in 1896. The very first automobiles used acetylene lamps for down road visibility because the flame was more resistant to the wind than other resources at the time, but as vehicles started to go faster, more lighting solutions were needed.
Although the first electric headlights were invented shortly after in 1898, they initially had a host of problems since electricity was still a very new concept at that time. Surprisingly, electric vehicle headlights were also pretty unpopular until the early 1900s. As vehicle use became a more commonplace and preferred method of transportation, the first vehicles with a modern electric system, including fully functioning electric headlights, were born.
Two centuries later the headlight as we know it continues to advance in its technology and lifespan but the question still remains — which ones are the best?
