Kensun 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. That said, here is a rough guide to Color Temperatures for HID bulbs:
3000K = Yellow
4300K = Bright white yellow tinge
5000K = Pure white
6000K = Bright white (some detect slight blue)
8000K = White with blue tinge
10000K = Light blue
12000K = Blue
15000K = Darker Blue (may appear violet)
20000K = Blue indigo
30000K = Indigo
5000K (Bright White)

Rec'd thiis product and had local service install - Lexus dealer wanted roughly $550- including labor - this would include a left transformer - and the pack of 2 replacement bulbs - I bought the 2 even though only the left was out - they say often when one goes out the other is not far behind. Plus, I wasn't sure what was in there for the remaining original and I could specify the color here. Perhaps I could have checked the manual or called the parts department at Lexus but at this price it wasn't worth the trouble ! I have only had them in for about 2 weeks but they are working great - no issues... The only reason I didn't post 5 stars is because I have only had them in for a short time - perhaps they will earn the 5 in some time. As long as nothing changes they sure will. Overall my savings was about $365- by ordering this part plus the transformer with installation at my local auto service mechanic. I haven't had any major issues with my '07 Lexus GS350 and this just added to...
super fast shipping. OEM quality. Bought the 6000k @ D3S. 2011 Taurus SHO. color seems a little purple at first look but great light output. may try the 5000k.
*update* not happy with the 6000k. Way to purple. Looks to be 8000k+ email Kensun and they are sending out a 5000k. Great service.
**update** i believe Indid receive a 8000-10000k set by mistake. Kensun os sending a 5000k and another 6000k. Amazing customer service. Kensun will continue to receive my business eith all my vehicles.
Love the 6000k! Exactly the color temperature I was expecting, I got to say.. at first one of the bulbs stop working and I was pretty upset about it, but I cantacted Kensun and asked to return the bulbs, they reply the same day and offered me a new pair of bulbs for free and told me that if I had any problems, they will refund my money back. Haven't had any problems so far with my lights, very satisfied with their exellent costumer service.
