Description

This globe is exclusive to us – we identified where the normal H4 HID globes were failing and addressed these with the factory. The following improvements were made …

  • Internal improvements to connections, gases and materials.
  • Can only be clicked together just 1 way – eliminates being mounted upside down causing light scatter in low beam
  • The lock in is a lot more secure. The cheaper globes would wriggle loose and the globe stalk would fall out while driving and set fire to the rubber boot or anything combustible it comes into contact with – that was primarily the start of our quest for the ultimate HID globe.
  • The body is not plastic but alloy and the globe base is seated in ceramic. Means it can tolerate much higher temperatures and not melt. Cheaper globes tended to melt with 55w or 70w ballasts. These are working great even with our 120w ballasts. (Note we don’t have a Hi/Lo loom that can take 120w so it is not available as a 120w kit yet)
  • 100% waterproof. This will work completely submerged under water.
  • The alloy body is cnc machined aluminium and will not rust or corrode. It will not crack, split or fatigue like the plastic ones once subjected to heat.
Our JTX HID globes generate just 15% more heat than a conventional incandescent bulb of the same watts. So with a 55w ballast this HID bulb generates less heat than a conventional 65w bulb (which is normal high beam for most cars) and so there is no fading or problems with lights and even plastic headlights.
The most common myth is people get confused between colour ratings and brightness. Brightness is achieved by the watts of your ballast.  The colour ratings set at the factory determine the “whiteness” or amount of “blue” the lights produce. 4300k is our default colour and is pure white. 6000k is white with a hint of blue. 8000k is white with a fair amount of blue and 10,000k is getting blue. We also do 12,000k and 15,000k and that’s getting almost purple.
This rating is certainly not a brightness like a lot of people think (They feel the bigger the number the brighter it must be) in fact the darker the colour the less effective it becomes. Have you ever heard of a dark light being bright?
In the HID world this globe is referred to as H4-3 shifting. The globe part comes on and stays on no matter which beam. In low beam the bottom half of the light’s reflector is shaded so as not to cast light upwards. When you flick to hi beam the globe stalk shifts by use of a solenoid powered by 2 thin wires in the wiring harness. Not only does the bright spot of the globe shift into the focal point of the reflector but light is no longer shaded and all of the light’s reflector casts light . It’s common knowledge that HID globes take a few seconds to reach full brightness – by not turning on or off between hi and low there is no dark time or warm up periods.
