WHAT IS HID/XENON LIGHTING?


HID stands for High Intensity Discharge and refers to lighting technology that relies on an electrical charge to ignite Xenon gas contained in a sealed bulb. The technology of HID automotive lamps is similar to that of common vapor-filled street lamps. HID lighting doesn't have a filament but instead creates light by igniting an arc between two electrodes. HID lights get their name from the intense white light produced by the electrical discharge and are also called Xenon lamps, referring to a gas inside the lamps. HID general lighting has been used for years in sports arenas and stadiums around the country.


WHAT IS HID/XENON LIGHTING?
Increased brightness

* Brightness is increased by 300% or more, depending on color temperature or "K" of the kit you choose! **Note: apparent brightness decreases as color temperature increases and lower "K" color temperatures appear brighter**
* HIDs produce a whiter light which means the light given off is closer to the color of natural sunlight, which makes nighttime driving much easier.
* CarsInTheBox HIDs have a longer life span of 3500-4000 hours vs. the typical 250-500 hours for halogen lights.
* HIDs are power-saving using only 35W vs. 65-100W for halogen lighting. HID lighting uses 40% less energy, yet provides a brighter light!


When driving, especially at night it can be vital to see more in borderline situations because the risk of having an accident at night is about twice as high as during the day - despite the fact that there is less traffic on the road. The reason for this is because humans are inadequately equipped to see at night or in poor weather conditions. The better you can see and the more similar the light conditions are to daylight, the better the compensation for the factors that make night driving difficult:

Overstimulation caused by the large number of traffic signs.
Reduction of visual perception at night to one twentieth of the daytime level.
Restricted field of vision which causes the loss of important information and a reduced ability to recognize colors and contrasts.
Tiredness and decreasing concentration.
Diminishing powers of vision in the dark from 30 years of age onwards.

How is HID different?

HID lighting provides about 4x the light output of standard halogen headlights while using less energy and are designed to last up to 5x longer than standard halogen lamps. In fact our HID Bulbs are rated to run between 3500-4000hrs constant which is an amazing life span compared to the competitions 1500-2000hrs or your stock halogen bulbs which last only 250-500hrs thus saving you money.


HID is similar to daylight.

Xenon bulbs offer more light than conventional bulbs and a quality of light similar to daylight which ensures more safety while driving. Road illumination is much brighter and wider with the Xenon light which has a longer range, in particular, the dangers at curb areas and obstacles in front of the vehicle are recognized more quickly. Pedestrians or cyclists can also be seen better, as well as traffic signs at the edge of the road. In poor weather conditions - such as rain, fog or snow - drivers also have much better spatial vision which means that the orientation ability of drivers is less limited despite adverse conditions. Driving comfort is also improved because it is not the act of seeing itself which leads to tiredness and other negative effects, but the concentration involved. A road that is illuminated more brightly and widely by Xenon light reduces the amount of concentration needed, so that drivers do not become tired as quickly and can concentrate on driving longer.
