HID Xenon Headlights explained:

Xenon headlights are also known as High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights and unlike halogen headlights which use a heated filament, create light by the arc between two electrodes.

Lower power (watts) consumption

Brighter light making driving safer, 3 times as bright lengthening visibility at night

Long life, bulbs should last in excess of 5 years

As this is done in a Xenon gas bubble in the middle of the bulb the electrical resistance is reduced. This means that Xenon headlights can provide up to 200% more light than halogen headlights, whilst using less energy.


Xenon headlights use high voltages (2000v) to ignite these bulbs so require a ballast / control unit with either an internal or external igniter/ignitor. The ignition  and ballast operation proceeds in three stages:

Ignition: a high voltage pulse (2000v) is used to produce a spark which ionises the Xenon gas, creating a conducting tunnel between the electrodes. In this tunnel the electrical resistance is reduced and current flows between the electrodes.

Initial phase: the bulb is run with controlled overload. Because the arc is operated at high power, the temperature in the capsule rises quickly. The resistance between the electrodes continues to fall; the electronic ballast control registers this and automatically switches to continuous operation.

Continuous operation: The arc has attained its stable shape and the ballast now supplies stable electrical power (85v) so the arc will not flicker. Once the arc starts, its maintenance requires perfectly stabilised power of 85 volts, which must be free from any fluctuation. Management of this, involving both the starting pulse and the regulation of operating voltage, is performed by an electronic module, often called “ballast”, integrated into the headlight.

Xenon gas discharge bulbs are known as (D1S, D2S, D1R, D1R).

Colour Temperature is a measurement in Degrees Kelvin that indicates the hue of a specific type of light source. Original Equipment bulbs and headlights will have a 4300K White colour. Bulbs with higher colour temperatures will be less bright and have a blue tint to them.
