What is HID / Xenon Headlamps?

HID headlights or High Intensity Discharge (HID) is a type of lighting technology that is primarily different from the conventional halogen bulbs that use a heated tungsten filament.

High-Intensity-Discharge ( HID ) xenon lamps for Xenon headlights are different from halogen lamps in that they create light by the arc between two electrodes, not a filament. The arc reacts with Xenon gas, which ignites the metal halide salts inside. The light produced by an HID Xenon lighting system is greater than a standard halogen bulb and with less power consumption and less heat. On the road, HID Xenon headlights appear as a bright white beam, resembling natural daylight. This bright white beam offers the greatest visibility and on road safety.

How do I know what kind of HID conversion kit or HID Headlights/Xenon Bulbs to order?

HID Lights / Xenon Bulbs

With so many vehicle makes, models and trim levels, it is very important that you check and make sure what type of bulb your specific vehicle needs. You can find the bulb type for your car in many locations. The most common place is the headlight lens itself, the bulb type will be stamped/molded into it. Another place is on the bulb itself, the bulb type and wattage will be molded or printed onto the base. The vehicle owner’s manual should also tell you what type of bulb you need for your vehicles head lights and/or fog lights. If you still cannot find the bulb type you need we can tell you what kind of bulbs your vehicle uses. Once we know the correct bulb information, we can provide you with the proper HID conversion kit.

Xenon 3000K 

hid lightsHas an approximately 3200lm output, which is more than 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light. 3000K emits a GOLDEN YELLOW colour and offers superior penetration power during adverse weather typically in dense fog. The applications of the 3000K kit aim more towards secondary lighting apparatus such as high beam and fog lights. The 3000K capsule is actually a 4300K capsule specially coated with a UV film that filters out all the wave length except the range of wave length which emits yellow. This is the colour temperature that will catch all the attention on the road.
