    Hi mga sirs, we're sure that switching off our headlights during
    traffic prolong the life of battery. Does it also extend the
    lifespan / burning hours of halogen bulb? How about HID's?
    Or frequent on and off only stresses those?

    Ang dami nang threads na ganito.

    Yes I switch them off at traffic lights.
    *Para alam ng ibang sasakyan na nakahinto ako (not foolproof, just look at the jeepneys)
    *Para hindi mapagod ang mata ko (lalo na kapag stainless ang nasa harapan)
    *Para ma-stimulate yung nasa harapan ko kapag green na (rather than businahan ko or mag-bright ako)

    Wala naman nagbago sa life span ng bulbs, wala pa din naman ako nasisirang headlamp switch.

    Wala naman atang effect sa battery life ito kasi alternator na ang nag-susupply ng kuryente diba? Unless naka-DVD player ka, full blast sounds, todo aircon, etc. habang naka-hinto. hehehe.

    I also set the parking brake and take my foot off the brake pedal para hindi din naman masilaw yung kasunod ko.

    certainly it will prolong the life (burning hours of gas or filament)if you switch it off.

    Ako din nagpapatay pag extended yung stop, especially pag stainless yung nasa harap ko or passenger jeepney para hindi naman masilaw yung mga pasahero. Iniiwan ko lang nakabukas yung auxiliary lights AKA foglights.

    Same here, lalo na pag ngawit na paa ko kakaapak.
