Do you want to drive more safe at night with a better and wider light vision, and see far much beyond the dashboard. HID lights is your best choice, we call it HID lights, hid conversion kits and HID xenon. It's getting more and more popular in the automotive industry, and replaced most of the halogen headlights with it's better light intensity and lower power consumptions.

What is HID?
An HID light consists of a glass tube that contains tungsten electrodes, gas and metals. You see light emit from the tube when an electrical arc is struck across the electrodes. The gas helps the light to start, and once the metals are heated they function to produce the light. Gardeners enjoy the benefits of using these lights because they provide light that most closely resembles sunlight, a definite plus when you are growing plants indoors without exposure to sunlight. They are also cost efficient, because they last longer than other light bulbs and are more energy efficient.

Here is some specifications for color temperature
HID Color temperature refers to the degrees (K) , which simply the measures of the color for the lighting output, like golden yellow, white, crystal white, blue Ãâ‚
Degree (k) refers only to the color, while lumen refers to the lighting intensity. So the higher the color temperature (degrees K) doesn't mean a higher light intensity (lumen). Here is the summary for the common color temperature on the market --
3000K (Golden Yellow) , 4300K (Bright White), 5000K (white), 6000K (Crystal White),8000K (Crystal Blue), 10000K (Aqua Blue), 12000K (Purple-Blue).
5000K or 6000K are the most popular color temperature, and if you are planning to buy the hid kits with 10000K or over, please be careful about the legal issue in your country. Most of the 12000K or 14000K (purple) are using off road only.

Please make sure that you know what kits you need to install your hid lights, here are something you should know before purchasing a new hid kits.
