HID Xenon Light Source
HID is the newest and most effective technology in lighting
systems. With HID lights, you get greater output, while using less
engery. The light emitted from a HID light is whiter, brighter and
lighter than traditional spotlights. This give the user better
clarity and vision each time, every time. The lights are a safer
choice for long distance drivers, causing less fatigue and strain
on the eyes.
Because the lights do not use a filament, they are less prone to
damage caused by vibration and excess heat. They have a longer
lifespan ... up to 3,000 hours compared to an average of 900 hours
of most standard halogen lights.
Lighting from an hid kit is up to 10 times more durable than a
halogen lighting system since road vibrations can cause damage to a
halogen filament, but there is nothing to break inside an HID bulb.
Instead of using a filament as it's source of light output, an hid
bulb generates a xenon arc that jumps between two diodes to emit
its light output. This electrical arc is similar to the lighting in
the sky, so in a since, hid xenon bulbs are what you might call
"lightning in a bottle!" Pretty cool huh?!! These light sources
also produce a white to blue-white light in the 4300K to 6000K
color range that is safer due to the fact that it is closer to the
color of natural daylight.
The color temperature of daylight is close to 4300K, which is why
we as human beings that see best during the daylight are able to
see more vividly with a 4300K hid kit compared to 2300K from
halogen bulbs. The light output from a 35W 4300K HID Xenon lamp is
about 300% more visible light than a 55W halogen bulb. The xenon
hid kit will also consume much less power from your vehicles
electrical system and generate much less heat during operation.
