We get asked this question all the time, a customer will ring up and say “I bought a pair of Xenon HID bulbs from H******s last week but they weren’t as bright as claimed on the packaging, so why should I buy your Kit and why does it cost so much more than what’s available to me in H******s?” – The simple answer being, what you purchased from your local store wasn’t a Xenon HID Conversion Kit but in fact it was merely replacement Halogen-Type bulbs that were filled with a bit more of the Xenon Gas.

A HID conversion kit will convert any standard halogen headlight setup to the latest technology Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting. The light output from a HID conversion kit could be compared to that of the OEM standard light output from say a 2010 Range Rover Sport, they will burn up to 300% brighter than any standard Halogen bulb and the way they do this is by the power packs provided in the kit. All HID conversion kits come complete with real Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs and HID Ballast units (also known as power packs or blasters). The ballasts convert your 12v car power into 85-23000v giving you ultra bright lights on the road – remember you must focus these correctly so not to blind on coming vehicles.

Many people sell upgraded Halogen bulbs which are just Xenon Gas filled and are describing them as Xenon HID bulbs but the truth is that they contain the Xenon gas as found in real HID bulbs but they do not have the capabilities to burn as bright because there is no power converter, they are simply drawing the 12v current which your vehicle already supplies – seriously, how much brighter can you get from a standard halogen taking a 12v feed to a Xenon Gas Filled Bulb taking the same 12v feed. In some cases, we’ve seen a decrease in light output so don’t get fooled by cheap gimmicks.

H7 Xenon Gas Filled BulbsIf you’re not quite ready to go the full way and invest in a real genuine Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lighting Conversion Kit then the next best thing would be to grab a set of Philips Xtreme bulbs which are the best Halogen upgrades available on the market and reports have proved they can give out as much as a 75% increase from standard Halogen bulbs.
