This light is original German made Xenon. It is based on the gas discharge principle, where an arc of light is created between two electrodes in a glass tube filled with metal salts and inert gases. This is not to be confused with many manufacturers who call their halogen lamps Xenon. If your car's head lights have halogen light bulbs in it, you can have the latest and brightest lights, without spending several hundred dollars.
We install only quality brand name components for durability and safety, made by reputable manufactures.
Xenon / HID bulbs do not use a filament like halogen bulbs, but creates light by zapping an arc between two electrodes. This arc excites gases, igniting metallic salts. The product of this reaction is intense white light.
Xenon / HID has power consumption of 3.5 amps constant draw compared to approximately 10 amps drawn from a standard halogen light bulb.
Xenon / HID bulbs life is an average of 3000 hours compared to the halogen's 750 hour life, and is not effected by vibration.
Xenon / HID produces a color temperature of 4300 degrees Kelvin verses 2800 degrees Kelvin from a standard halogen bulb. For comparison, the earth's sun has a color temperature of 5200 degrees Kelvin.
Xenon / HID output is approximately 3200 lumens compared to 750 lumens in a standard halogen bulb, resulting in over three times the light output.Related:
Evolution of headlights: The halogen light bulb used to be say 10 dollars H4, then we went to high pressure H7 bulbs 15 dollars. Next step was the HID system, which uses a special high voltage bulb with mercury salt, has been say 140 dollars. Additionally there is a module which may cost 500 to 1200 dollars, plus in all the German made cars, there is a mandatory self levelling light system on top. Now we progressed to LED headlights.
