He won't have some temp and bulb shape in stock so he may have to order them in but most common ones are there.

We can get the lowest price If we buy the ballast & HID bulb separately.

Here is just an example that I pick from ebay.

Each 35W Slim Ballast for $8.87 x 2 = $17.74 delivered with 14 days warranty.

http://cgi.ebay.com....atchlink:top:en

A pair of 35W H7 4300k HID bulb for $10.20 delivered with lifetime warranty.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2-x-35W-Car-Xenon-HID-Bulbs-Headlight-Lamps-H7-4300K-/170593844785?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item27b82f7e31

Total price is $27.94

The lowest price for a set of 35W H7 4300K Slim Ballast kit is $32.46 delivered with 12 months warranty.

We could negotiate further discount if we have group buy.

Sending the HID kit or faulty part back is not fun at all especially with the expensive shipping rate in Aus.

His HID is DC HID kit

So since you sell AC ballast. Tell me this. How do you earth an AC ballast?

So since you sell AC ballast. Tell me this. How do you earth an AC ballast?

The output is AC, not the input. You can still ground the negative lead as per normal. Where the AC comes into play is in how it operates the HID lamp. Instead of the electric arc inside the lamp "moving in one direction" in a DC setup, the arc is formed by AC current. This in turn results in equal deposits on each electrode and essentially can lead to longer lamp life.

That said, a lot of people try to grab your attention by saying that their ballasts/lamps are AC and others are DC. Fact of the matter is, a lot of the kits are in fact AC, despite what others try to tell you. From a manufacturing perspective, it works out better for them to use AC anyway because the inverter in the ballast that produces the high voltage required for the lamp naturally outputs AC. Changing this to DC requires further components.

That said again, the AC produced by all these ballasts are square wave AC. It is kind of like applying DC voltage to the lamps, but because it alternates anyways, the benefits are still there.

In addition to that, true DC power is applied to the lamps in two stages. The first is at the ignition phase where a DC voltage of about 23kV is used to establish the arc (made possible with the use of Xenon in the lamp) and then for the first 16ms or so during warm up.

Thanks for that Daryl. So the only way to really know if you have a AC HID kit is if it says on the Ballast itself?
