SDX HID Xenon Headlight Replacement Bulbs
HID lights have a glass chamber of gas, replacing the filament of traditional halogen bulbs. The gas is ignited by a 23,000v charge and stays illuminated by a constant 12v source provided by a ballast which is connected directly to your battery.
Remarkably, HID lights are able to provide greater light output with much less power consumption. Studies show that a 35w HID lamp produces 3 times as much light than a 55w halogen bulb. Also, a halogen bulb uses a continuous power draw of 10-15 amps, while the HID system uses 20 amps for ignition, but then drops to a mere 3 amps during operation (i.e. up to 80% less power during use!).
In addition, the HID headlamp provides longer service life. With no filament to vibrate and fatigue, under normal conditions HID bulbs last roughly 10 times longer than halogen bulbs.
What is HID Color Temperature?
Color temperature is a characteristic of light that is sometimes mistaken as brightness, when it is more closely related to "cool" and "warm" tones of light. Color temperature is a measure in Degrees Kelvin of the hue of a light source, in this case the HID bulb. (The term color temperature actually refers to the color associated with the amount of heat needed to produce that color from an ideal black body.)
It is hard to describe HID colors accurately since many variables such as voltage, type of ballast and the environment can affect color output. Also, color perception is subjective.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought a set of these for my fogs in 5K to match my 5K headlights. The bulbs are purple, like 12K. Not really what I expected unless the bulbs were mislabeled from the factory and are actually 12k. I bought a set of these in 6K for another car and the color temp on those were spot on. These are good bulbs, I think I may have just gotten the wrong product for what I ordered.
UPDATE - Kensun customer service has made an attempt to correct this issue by sending me a set of bulbs from a newer batch. I installed the replacement bulbs and while one bulb is finally spot on at 5K, the other bulb still exhibits a very noticeable purple hue. I swapped ballasts to rule out the possibility of a bad ballast, but the issue still remains. I have informed the vendor of the issue and am awaiting further advice.
UPDATE 1/2/2014 - Jack from Kensun is continuing to work with getting me a matching pair of bulbs. Customer service has been a 5 star experience as the vendor is...
One side of my original bulb went bad due to a loose soldering where the wire connected to the bulb itself. I called SDX and explained my problem to them and mentioned their 2 year warranty. the guy on the phone was able to help me out easily and quickly made an order for replacement bulbs. They came exactly as planned and were packaged well. Nothing special to point out, The bulbs were easy to install!. I like how they fitted very tightly in to the housing. That ensured no moisture find its way in. The color was spot on exactly the same color as the old bulbs. I could say this because I only had to replace one side and too be honest the new bulb was actually brighter than the old bulb. Hopefully other customers find the same perk as i did.
Purchased many replacement bulbs from other companies only to find out they flickered or had color differences. These replacements from SDX are by far the best that i have purchased for the price. They don't flicker at all. Love them so much, I purchased another set as backups. I use the H7, 6000K on my Mercedes C32 AMG. I highly recommend them
