Default 2004 Accord change to led head lights bulb

One of my old halogen bulbs for low beam gone, just wonder if it is OK to replace with led bulbs to get brighter and further lights?

After searching the ebay and amozon, very confused with those HB4/9006 led bulbs that have 1400W or even 22000W ... my old one is just 51 W.

Need some clarification. Thanks

LED bulbs with similar light output are much lower wattage, so those high numbers don't seem reasonable. Sure that's not a color-temperature (in kelvins) or something else?

Your wiring & fuses won't supply 1400 watts to the headlight circuits.

What you are looking at is the kelvin. You should be looking for something in the 4500k-6000k range. the lower the spectrum the yellow it gets. The higher the spectrum the more blue/purple you see. I believe 4500k-4700k is the OEM range depending on the make of the car.

Thanks for the reply. This is one I found. Except for the HB4/9006 that matches my car, I can't tell if it really fits.

I would pass on that one. 1400w is impossible out of that light. Also when you start going pass 6000k your night time driving starts to get bad. Blue color does not mix well with the night time on a dark road. You are looking for lights that are 35w.
