|Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is a HID headlight?
The best way to describe a HID headlight is to compare it to a halogen headlight. A halogen bulb has a wire filament. When electrical current is
applied to the filament, it glows brightly to produce light. Whereas an HID bulb which has no filament, but instead consists of gas, mercury,
and metal halide salts. The gas is ignited by an arc of high-voltage current and glows brightly. HIDs are OEM equipment generally found on
luxury and exotic cars but are progressively finding their way into the mainstream automobile market.
2. How long will my HIDS last?
HID bulbs are rated to last on average 6000-8000 hours. A quality HID bulb and ballast will last for about 4-6 years before needing replacement.
In contrast, a halogen bulb is rated for 1600-3000 hours and need to be replaced after about 2-3 years of usage.
