How to choose a suitable led light bar for your vehicle

How to choose a suitable led light bar for your vehicle? We always hear customers ask, “What is the difference between spot beam and flood beam? Which one is more suitable for the lights I get? Which led chip is the best?” Here, I will explain these in detail and give some suggestions, hoping to help you make better decisions.



Spot beam pattern

Spot beam is often called pencil beam, which has a narrow 8° beam pattern. So the light is more concentrated. Because the effective range of radiation is small and the effective radiation distance is longer, it is widely used in task-specific lighting. When you are driving off-road vehicles on the road at night and want the lights focused and intense in a further and specific area. The spot beam is more appropriate.


Flood beam pattern

Flood beam has a wide beam spread of 90 °. It is great for a wider range of lighting. As the distance increases, the light is more and more spread out. So the light will not be too intense in long distance lighting. For example, when you want more light at closer area, such as a garage, lawn, or open country, flood beam pattern is a good choice.


Combo beam pattern

As the name suggests, the combo combined with spot beam and flood beam in a light bar. If you like diversity glare, this is the right choice. It is not only with a high brightness in the short and greater range, but else with the intense focusing effect in the long distance. This is the reason why more and more customers prefer to buy the combo beam offroad led light bar.



What’s more, I think you should understand them more or less. In most cases, customers will use a flood beam on the roof for wider range lighting while using a spot or combo on the bumper for the visibility of greater distance. As the price is the same for different beam patterns, so which offroad led light bar you choose depends on your own specific situation.
