Welcome to Pilot HID
Pilot HID is your number one source to buy HID lights, conversion kits, replacement HID bulbs, ballasts, relay wire harnesses, and other HID accessories. HID, High Intensity Discharge, refers to lighting technology that relies on an electrical charge to ignite xenon gas in a sealed bulb, similar to the lightning phenomenon in the sky. HID lighting does not have a filament but instead creates light by igniting an electrical discharge between two electrodes in an air tight tiny quartz capsule filled with xenon gas. HID lighting are also called Xenon lighting, referring to the gas inside the bulb.
HID lighting improves durability by 10 times as road vibrations can cause damage to halogen filament. These light sources also produce a blue-white light that is safer because it is closer to natural daylight. The color temperature is more than 5000K compared to 2300K for halogen. The light output from a 35W HID Xenon lamp is 300% more light than a 55W halogen bulb. The HID Xenon system will also consume much less power from your vehicles electrical system and generate much less heat during operation.
Bottom line, Pilot HID headlights provide better visibility than ordinary halogen bulbs.
