High intensity discharge.

If only we lived in a world where millions of terabytes of information was readily and almost instantly searchable, even on handheld devices. That would be sweet.

No you're right. My apologies, b2673ad. I had to look it up on Google myself, not trying to act like a know it all. Was making a snarky comment about how it's so easy to find info like that. But if we used Google for everything than what would be the point of having forums and a community. Sorry.

High Intensity Discharge lights (or HID for short) produce light by arcing an electric current between two electodes. The part of the bulb that the arc is produced in is filled with different chemicals to produce different colors of light. I can't remember what they are, but the main benefit over regular bulbs is that the arc takes much less energy to maintain than heating a coil to produce light. Regular bulbs are like toasters in the fact that they make light by heating a metal to its glowing point.

That's what step up transformers are for though.
