What Is HID?
HID stands for "High Intensity Discharge". HID lights get their name from the intense white light produced by the electrical discharge.
HID lights are a different type of lighting technology utilized in automobiles for greater effectiveness and greater efficiency. Unlike Halogen (or incandescent) bulbs, HID bulbs do not have filaments.
"Instead of heating a filament as standard halogen bulbs do, HID bulbs create light by bridging an arc between two electrodes similar to the energy transfer of lightning. The arc stimulates a mixture of
Xenon gases and metallic salts, producing a phenomenal bright white beam of light approximately 3x brighter than conventional halogen illumination, while lasting 10x longer!"
The Advantages Of Xenon HID Lights
More light output (up to 3 times brighter)
Wider coverage (beam pattern illuminates up to 70% more of the roadway, especially the sides)
Whiter light (almost a blue light, resulting in clearer images)
More durable (withstands shock and vibration since there is no filament)
Longer life (last 3 times longer or 5-10 years, depending on use)
Greater efficiency (3x more light while using 24% less power)
