Everything you need to know about the Amber Beam Light Bar

The amount of LED amber lights installed on vehicles have been on the rise in the recent years due to the different variations of Amber LED lights available on the market. So we will quickly walk you through reasons why you need an Amber LED light on your vehicle.


Who needs an Amber beam light bar or Amber Light beam pod?

With the advantage of an LED Amber Beam being the ability to see better in foggy or snowy weather, Amber LED light bars are best for climates that see that a lot of snow or experience heavy fog conditions. However, just because you don't live in a snow ridden area like Colorado, it doesn't mean that you won't find an amber led light useful in a state like Pennsylvania. 


If you encounter ANY snow conditions or ANY fog conditions then it's a good practice to have an Amber LED light option on your vehicle. What most people fail to understand is that a LED light equipped with white light that is used in snowy or foggy conditions becomes unproductive due to the the reflective properties of the fog and snow.

To better understand this, have you ever walked outside on a sunny day when there is snow on the ground, what happens? When you walk outside you are instantly blinded by the sun because the sun light is reflecting off the snow on the ground. This is the same effect you get when when you turn your white LED lights on during snowy or foggy conditions.

Can you use a amber light bar when snowing or foggy conditions are not present?

Why Aurora Amber Light Bars and Amber Light pods are better than the competition?

What makes Aurora Amber light bars different from the competitors is that Aurora uses amber LED chips with a clear lens while everyone else uses white LED chips and an amber lens.


Recently there has been a lot of companies introducing amber LED light bars with an amber lens which gives the product a good look, but it handicaps the overall functionality of the product. The problem with this method is that it restricts the amount of light that comes out of the amber light bar or amber light pod.

Aurora chooses to manufacture their products with amber LED chips and a clear lens because it allows the amber LED light to be brighter and push the beam further to help you navigate fog, snow and other inclement weather conditions.

Should you get a dedicated Amber light or an Amber light bar cover?

This is a very common question we get and it depends on the following two factors:

  1. Amber Light Bar Mounting space: How much space do you have?
    1. For some of us, mounting space comes at a premium, so if your space is limited you may have to do the amber light bar cover or amber light pod cover. If your vehicle has the space for an LED white light product and an Amber light product then having a dedicated Amber product would be best.
  2. Amber Light Bar Usage - How often will you get to use the light?
    1. If you live in an area like Washington were you encounter heavy levels of fog, then a dedicated LED amber light would be best.
    2. If you live in an area where snow or fog only happens a couple of times a year then a amber cover would be best. With Aurora's Amber snap on light bar covers or Aurora's Amber light pod covers you can easily pop the amber cover's on and off when needed.
