Gas Discharge or High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs are a type of bulb that provides more light on the road than a standard Halogen bulb. Unlike a standard bulb they require an electronic ballast to ignite the bulb creating a spark between two points. They are longer lasting with an average life of 2000 hours compared to a standard bulbs which can last between 450 and 1000 hours.
HID bulbs are designated a “S” burner or “R” burner. An “S” burner has a plain glass shield and are used in projector type optics where as “R” burners are designed for reflective type optics and have an opaque mask on certain parts of the shield to create the cut off boundary near the top of the low beam.
