17 best H11 bulbs

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

In modern cars, lamps with an H11 base are widely used. Such a connecting form is found both in budget cars and on prestigious SUVs. The reason for the popularity of such lighting devices is their high power (up to 55 W). With the advent of LEDs, this indicator has ceased to play a primary role, but it remains a kind of brightness criterion when choosing a light bulb. Today on the automotive market there is a rich assortment of products with H11 base, which makes buying difficult. Our experts will help you to clarify the subtleties of the selection of car bulbs with the shape of the H11 base.

How to choose an H11 bulb

  1. Design. Today, incandescent lamps look archaic in cars. Manufacturers of lighting products are constantly improving the design of the light bulb. At the moment, the leading positions are occupied by gas-filled devices and LEDs. Halogens and xenon are two types of gas-filled lamps. They differ not only in the gas pumped into the flask, but in the way of ignition and price. LEDs have become the most modern and advanced way to illuminate the road in the dark. Every day they are increasingly replacing traditional gas-discharge lamps.
  2. Car manufacturer recommendations. Competent selection of a lamp for standard optics begins with the recommendations of the automaker. First of all, it is important to choose the right shape of the base and not exceed the power. If the limit is 25 W, then it is unsafe to install more powerful lamps.
  3. The voltage in the on-board network. Another important factor car owners should consider when buying light bulbs. This is the voltage in the vehicle electrical system. Whereas 12 V is traditionally used in cars, in trucks, commercial vehicles and some ATVs, electrical appliances are powered from a 24 V network.
  4. Scope of application. Modern cars are equipped with a large number of lighting fixtures. High beam headlamps require a powerful and bright light beam. Dipped beam and fog lights are designed to illuminate the road in the immediate vicinity of the car. Daytime running lights are designed to make the car visible in the daytime. At the same time, the technical parameters of the lamps can be comparable. But in some cases, bright white streams of light (high beam, DRL) show themselves better, and in other situations (rain, fog), yellow lamps (low beam, foglights) illuminate the road better.

We have selected 17 of the best H11 bulbs for review. All of them are widely represented in car dealerships in our country. When distributing positions in the rating, the opinion of experts and feedback from Russian motorists were taken into account.
