SAVE MONEY BUY QUALITY BRIGHTSTARTW OE REPLACEMENT HID CAR BULBS.

CERTIFIED (E-MARK & DOT APPROVED) D1S HID BULBS, HID D2R, HID D2S EQUIVALENT TO PHILIPS, OSRAM & GE.

KEY MATERIALS ARE ALL FROM THE SAME RELIABLE AND WORLD’S LEADING SUPPLIERS AS PHILIPS, OSRAM & GE.

BRIGHTSTAR TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD., abbreviated as BRIGHTSTARTW, is the only Asian HID bulb manufacturer, based in Taiwan, being able to produce E-MARK (ECE homologated) and DOT (compliant to FMVSS 108) D2S (P32d-2), D1S (PK32d-2) and D2R (P32d-3) HID bulbs in addition to PHILIPS, OSRAM & GE.

HID bulbs (gas discharge lamps) are specifically regulated in ECE Regulation No. 99, Approval of Gas-discharge Light Sources, Rev. 2.

The Regulation clearly defines HID bulbs position, dimensions of electrodes, arc, electrical characteristics, luminous flux, color, UV radiation, etc. to ensure:

 Brightness of the bulb, too bright could cause glare to upcoming road users, too dim would not able to see the way ahead

 Light source is correctly focused with tolerant beam pattern

 Voltage and wattage, can be safely fitted without potential danger like overloading

 Size and shape, can be correctly fitted into the headlights

 And so on

There’re a few features in common for all these manufactures that are able to produce certified HID bulbs.

 KEY MATERIALS:

Quartz Outer Tube from GE Energy, USA, http://www.ge-energy.com/

Metal Salts from APL Engineered Materials, USA, http://www.adlt.com/aplpage.htm

Tungsten Electrodes from PLANSEE, AUSTRIA(EU), http://www.plansee.com/en/index.htm

 Xenon gas pressure inside lamp

In cold state approx. 7 bar to:

1. Protect the electrodes

2. Prolong the bulb’s life

3. Increase more light output

4. Stabilize color

*Those non-compliant HID bulbs from local China suppliers are injected much less xenon gas, sometimes 1 bar only, to incredibly lower their cost. This is exactly why the non-compliant bulbs stop working, become dim or change color only after 2-3 months of use.
