H.I.D. Headlamps
Have you ever seen those blue lights on Lincoln’s, BMW’s & Mercedes’ coming at you on the road?
Those lights are HID.

What is HID and how does it work?
High Intensity Discharge (HID) is an arc lamp in which the bulb is a quartz glass tube filled with xenon
gas and metallic salts with two electrodes inside, separated by a gap. Like fluorescent lamps, HID lamps
require a ballast to start and maintain their arcs. The supplied ballast transforms 12V on your vehicle to
20,000V to the lamp just like a coil induces high-voltage for the spark to jump across the spark plug gap.
When the arc jumps across the gap, it produces intense light, much like an arc from an arc welder. Once
the arc is started, it heats and evaporates the metal salts forming a plasma, which makes more visible
light per unit of electric power consumed than fluorescent and incandescent lamps since a greater
proportion of their radiation is visible light in contrast to heat, meaning that HID lamps are 3 to 4 times
brighter than halogen (iodine) and draw less power (wattage) than incandescent lamps.

Are HID lamps Hi/Low beam?
No, they are one beam only. Some come equipped with an additional halogen bulb to use for hi-beam.
