Energy equations

Where does the energy go?

[B]Incandescent [/B]
Visible Light 8%
Infra Red 73%(needed to keep the filament warm)
UV 0%
Total Radiant Energy 81%
Heat (Conduct + Convect) 19%
Heat (cond+conv+IR) 92%

[B]HID[/B]
Visible Light 27% (This is the reason we switch...)
Infra Red 17%
UV 19% (Unwanted side effect - don't stare at HIDs too long, you'll get snowblind!!!)
Total Radiant Energy 63%
Heat (Conduct + Convect) 37%
Heat (cond+conv+IR) 54%

A 55W incandescent will generate 10.5W of heat and 50,6W (92%) of heat + IR. The Infrared is needed to keep the filament warm... A 100W HID will generate 37W of heat and 64W of heat and infrared.

Depending on the disappation (conduction and convection components in my reflector/lens/holder) I might see as much as 6 times the heat build up. If you figure the infrared component too, I will only see a 26.5% heat increase compared to 55W halogens. This will be interesting. Currently, my lights are holding the 55W HID without any problem, which leads me to beleive that the Infrared component is contributing significantly more than 0 to the overall heat build-up; Hence, The delta heat disappation will be in the lower ranges...

The lights are in . I drove an hour tonight to ensure proper performance, security, etc. Fused off with a 10 amp fuse each, I can comfortably say, no current issues, and for all you doubters, no heat issue either.

Worked perfect, no camera can replicate the eye. I shot three photos neither one does any justice.

I shot before and after photos, and will try to post, but they really don't do justice to the light system. This board is for sharing experiences. Given the responses here, I am completely OK to go alone with this mod. Don't take my word for it. I had three people checking the lumens out tonight, and no one doubts the 2,000 stock to 32,000 current lumens output. These hid's have yielded a good 16 times more light output. I wish I had a better way to represent the light improvement. I really don't, except for word of mouth. I will try to post some photos, but the camera has not been cooperating. I also feel that this can be abused horribly. Not blinding down quick enough, will really cause our fellow motorists anguish. I am completely OK to go alone with this mod, given all real and perceived current, heat and other liabilities.

To one his own...
