What they are saying is that it is brighter than a standard halogen, and nearly as bright as an HID.As I stated before, I'm pretty dense, so some one usually has to explain to me.
Went to the web sight for the HIR bulbs.
It explains the the infrared lining to reflect the energy emitted by the filament back inside to re-heat the filament ... causing the bulb to glow much brighter than normal halogen bulbs.
Then the next statement is it produces 75% of light output of the HID bulbs.
So how is the HIR glowing brighter than normal halogen bulb but, only producing 75% of the light output:shrug:
Thanks Larry-my feeble mind finally comprehended the statements were about 2 different light sources. Boy, this getting old is terrible!What they are saying is that it is brighter than a standard halogen, and nearly as bright as an HID.
I'm skeptical. increasing brightness means increasing the heat on the filament. Increasing the heat reduces lifespan. I have wasted enough money on high performance bulbs. These companies should be investing their money in LED development, not designing gimmicks for a dying technology.
