The ballasts are the most important component of an HID kit, as they provide the
power. After years of providing midrange and even high-quality ballasts for
vehicles of all makes and models, Diode Dynamics identified a company called
HYLUXTEK as the very best manufacturer in the industry. Their newest ballast,
the 2A88 slim, is simply the best aftermarket ballast on the market. You will
see other high-end retailers carrying this same ballast, usually under their own
brand name, for a much higher cost.
Controller Chip. Most
digital (DSP) ballasts on the market still use generic chips, which are cheap,
and work pretty well. However, when you need maximum quality, you need a new
computer chip designed for one purpose. This is known as an Application-Specific
Integrated Circuit (ASIC). These ballasts use brand new DSP ASIC chips for
maximum efficiency and brightness, fast warmup time, and extremely stable
operation. To prevent counterfeiting, HYLUX has even included a fully-sealed
transparent window in the ballast, showing the ASIC inside.
vehicles have systems which sense the power consumption. Since HIDs use less
power than factory halogen bulbs, this can cause issues. You can resolve this by
adding capacitors, known as warning cancellers, or some ballasts come with them
built-in. However, sometimes that's still not enough to trick the vehicle! To
fix it, this ballast has an industry-leading CANBUS module, capable of smoothing
PWM signals up to 100hz, and providing feedback to the vehicle to equalize the
load, to defeat even the most troublesome modern CANBUS systems. Even if your
vehicle does not use a CAN-BUS system, these modules will provide extra power
smoothing for reliable operation. Simply put, this ballast will work on any
vehicle, the first time you plug it in. With this kit, you don't need to worry
about capacitors, warning cancellers, or resistors.
Startup. You may have heard
of ignition issues with other ballasts, caused by an igniter that is too small
to withstand cold temperatures. No reason to worry with these ballasts- the
oversized 24kV external igniter means that you will never have an ignition
issue, even in the coldest temperatures. Additionally, the ASIC chip in these
ballasts means that you only need 4 amps at nominal voltage to start up. These
ballasts consume less power than any other on the market, meaning 100% reliable
and fast startups, every time.
ballasts are the smallest you will find, about the size of a pack of playing
cards. The case is fully potted, or filled with epoxy, which makes them fully
waterproof and shockproof. This material is expensive, so most ballasts on the
market are only given a coating, or partial fill. HYLUX ballasts are completely
filled to the top, sparing no expense to ensure longevity. If you take off the
back cover on this ballast, you'll see what we mean!

The bulbs included with Diode Dynamics kits are CNLight bulbs, which are widely
regarded as the most dependable aftermarket bulbs on the market. Just like the
HYLUX ballasts, you will see other companies offering these same bulbs under
their own brand name. They provide superior life, brightness, and color
attenuation when compared to generic HID bulbs, like those found in most cheaper
kits on the market. With these bulbs you won't have any issue with bulbs not
matching in color, or flickering, which is common in cheaper bulbs. The
one-piece base design prevents any issues with separation over time, making the
entire bulb extremely reliable.
The CNLight bulb temperatures are rated accurately in correlated color
temperature at 35 watts, and have an industry-standard 3000 hours of estimated
bulb life. Please be aware that most HID bulbs are rated inaccurately from other
manufacturers. 8000K is not dark blue, and 6000K is not pure white! We provide
accurately-measured colors with a range of options to suit your taste.
our lowest temperature, and has a pure yellow output, which is great
for use in fog lights.
a natural white output, as seen on vehicles with factory HIDs. It
will not have any blue tint to its color, and might appear slightly
a pure white output, without any warm hint, and no blue either. It
may not be available in your specific bulb size, in which case it
will not be shown as an option.
our most popular color, which produces an ice white color. It has a
very slight hint of blue, and matches best with most LEDs.
our highest temperature, which produces an ice blue color. This is
not a strong blue color though- it is still primarily white, meaning
there will be no decrease in light output.
