ULTRA HID SYSTEM: So-called lifetime warranties by fly-by-night HID manufacturers and resellers are all too common in the marketplace. If a kit retails for $40, what components are being used, and what did the kit cost for the seller?! If the parts are dropping off left and right, leaving you without light output on the road, why bother even going to HID in the first place when halogen was more reliable? GTR Lighting Ultra HID systems are a top tier HID system backed by a well-renowned and enthusiast-based company. They're priced higher than generic (and problematic) "lifetime" HID kits, and here's why:
ULTRA HID BULBS: are constructed to be the best of the best as well. We use the best aftermarket connectors, silicone wiring, and HID bulb capsules available to create a product that just works and works well. Our bulbs have the ability to produce 30% more light than budget-brand HID bulbs found elsewhere. It's not uncommon to hear stories about how after a customer switches to a GTR Lighting HID kit it's twice as bright as their old HID kit they got from somewhere else!
ULTRA HID BALLASTS: THIS IS THE 5TH GENERATION HID BALLAST: designed specifically to integrate with the complex computer systems found in modern vehicles. Are you sick of a slow ballast warm-up time? The GTR Lighting Slim PWM ballast has an instant startup like new OEM ballasts of only 0.1s with full brightness reached at 9s. This ballast is barely larger than a stack of credit cards. 3.5" long, 2.75" wide and a half-inch tall! Mounting is easy with the supplied bracket with tape and ground strap.
PWM / CANBUS INTEGRATION: PWM stands for Pulse Width Modulation, it's when the vehicle flashes the input voltage to your bulbs so fast that you can't see the difference, but it modulates the activity of the halogen bulb. That's fine on an old style halogen/incandescent, but on HID systems it might make a flashing or strobing effect, or not work at all. The proprietary technology used in the GTR Lighting Slim Smart System HID ballast integrates with all PWM and CANBUS vehicles for optimal functionality.
AN ASIC CONTROLLER: like what's used in the GTR Lighting Hylux ballast is what you'll find in an OEM ballast for intelligent bulb control. The ASIC-based ballast technology is sophisticated, complex and intuitive. The Hylux ASIC technology will react to the bulb response to power and increase or decrease output to keep the bulb running bright for the longest possible time. ASIC technology also allows the ballast to have a higher level of CANBUS integration for vehicles that use PWM control or adaptive lighting. It's not a 100% fix for every vehicle, but the technology is designed to be the most flexible and work with the most applications easier. HID ballasts that use Hylux ASIC technology are also more expensive to make because the components required to build this system are high quality - you can not make a cheap ASIC ballast, therefore everything about a Hylux ballast is better: Faster warmup time, less ignition noise, brighter stable operating light, less flicker-fluctuation and a longer lifespan. Simply put, the GTR Lighting HID ballasts with Hylux technology are the best aftermarket ballast available.
