Automotive glossary: What is a Halogen Lamp?

Definition of Halogen Lamp: By introducing various halogens, the operating life of a incandescent lamp can increased to about three times as much. Additionally, the about 300°C increased operating temperature enhances the light yield on about twice as much. Finger prints or other contaminations on the glass surface lead to an overheating of the contaminated areas in operation, and can consequentially cause the bulb to burst. In case of doubt, clean it with an appropriate solvent before fitting.
