In fact, HID flashlight containing new xenon lights, also known as high-intensity discharge gas lamps, the abbreviation HID Intensity Discharge Lamp. HID flashlight to break the the tungsten light Edison's principle, high pressure inert gas - Xenon Xenon filled quartz lamp, replace the traditional filament, mercury and carbon compounds in the two sections of electrodes, a high voltage of 23,000 volts through ballast current stimulation xenon light, perfect white arc formed between the poles, the light emitted close to perfect, perfect sunlight.
Xenon lamps (HID) light-emitting principle:
Automotive HID xenon lamp with traditional halogen, which is a high-pressure discharge lamp emitting principle is the use of positive and negative electrical stimulation luminescence of xenon with the rare metal chemical reaction, a small glass ball lamp, which is filled with xenon gas and a little rare metals, as long as the current to stimulate chemical reaction, both will be issued up to 4000K-12000K color temperature light. It uses a special ballast (Ballast), the use of automotive electrical pond 2V voltage the trigger voltage lights start to generate more than 23000V. Start the brightness of 0.8 seconds is 20% of the rated brightness, to the brightness of the halogen lamp, and the headlights 4 seconds or less up to more than 80% of the nominal brightness. In the stability of the lamp ballast to the lamp lights provide about 80V supply voltage remains constant power operation.
