Impressive!

So... is it bright enough for you?

Enjoy,

Doing a throw test yesterday night on a marina, she killed my Thor15 in throw.  Its a fat bright beam of light compared to anything else.  But being a flashaholic, I don't know if theres anything that will be bright enough.  ;)

Very good description - "fat bright beam"

... I'm waiting for the Mother Of All Barn-Burners (MOAB) to hit the shelves!

Fatter, brighter, more expensive! 8)

In China  ,the HID xenon just start ,a lot of people want to change halogen to xenon ,because of its advantages .
One of the major advantages that HID lights provide is, since they consume less energy than regular headlights, once you install a HID conversion kit in your vehicle, you will most likely never need to change your headlights again.

I am coming from China . I have seen several model of xenon bulb and bi-xenon ,35w ,55w ,75w ,and slim ballast .
the slim kit performance better . :D .

I tried off-road light ,led light ,hid torch flashlight also .haha

I know thats what they advertise, but don't bet on it.....

I have been following threads since 07 about HID's going out in the Prius's "among other cars".

Ballast have to be matched perfectly to get the longevity expected.
If the voltage "from the ballast" is too hot, it will work great for a while until things oxidize and burn out due to heat.
If the voltage is too little, it will work at first but as parts of the bulb age and resistance rises it won't be long till the bulb will not continue to vaporize the matter inside to a plasma state and again, "for different reasons" the bulb will fail prematurely.

HID's are great for normal use and the technology is very good for very bright light without too much energy involved to make it happen.
But the are fragile if you intend to drop your light off a cliff anytime soon compared to some of the LED technology now coming out.

While not as bright as HID watt for watt, LED is upcoming technology that if improved much more will make the others obsolete except for fixed mountings.
My Olight SR90 is quite amazing for an LED that rivals the polarion or any HID in the 35 - 40Watt range for Throw.

The higher wattage  "50W and greater" HID's are still untouched by a single LED output... especially for throw.
