WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DUAL BEAM AND SINGLE BEAM HEADLIGHTS BULB?

Recently, one of our customers brought our attention to dual-beam and single-beam headlights bulbs, he was wondering if an AUXITO 9006 LED bulb could work for low and high beam on his Toyota Camry 2006.

So what’s the difference between dual beam and single beam headlights bulb?

A dual-beam headlight bulb has dual functions, one bulb serves the role of both high beam and low beam.


Dual-beam headlights, only one bulb per headlight housing, it creates low beam and high beam.

The single beam headlights bulb has a single function, one bulb creates only one beam, either low or high beam individually. You’ll need two single beam LED bulbs for low beam and high beam if you want to replace both.


Regarding this customer’s question, a Toyota Camry 2006 has single beam headlights, it takes 9006 bulbs for low beam and 9005 bulbs for high beam, so AUXITO 9006 LED bulb works for his low beam only, he needs another 9005 LED bulb for high beam.

You may be curious as to what are the single beam and dual-beam bulbs.

For single beam bulbs, H1, H3, H7, H8/H9/H11, 9005, 9006, 880/881, and 5202 are applied to.

For dual-beam bulbs, H4, H13, 9004 and 9007 are applied to.
