DALLAS--(Business Wire)--The growing interest in energy conservation, global warming and "green" environmentalism efforts have made new technologies popular. High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights help protect the environment and offer a wealth of additional benefits to industrial, military and consumer markets. Due in large part to ultra bright headlights integrated into BMW, Mercedes and other luxury automobiles, everyone is learning about the unmatched power of HID lights. While HID spotlights and flashlights dwarf incandescent bulbs in light output, people may not know that they consume less than 50% of the energy of the common light bulb. HID lights also put out far less heat than incandescent lights. Moreover, HID lights often last several thousand more hours than comparably specified halogen lights. This dramatically reduces the landfill impact, since most HID lights last decades. On the other hand, most halogen lights are treated as consumable items and are discarded and replaced every few months. "On Magnalight.com, we are really seeing our sales of HID spotlights, flood lights and flashlights sky rocket," said Rob Bresnahan, President of Larson Electronics. "Businesses, utility companies, soldiers and outdoorsmen want HID spotlights and HID flashlights for high power, efficiency, and durability. There is a very real cost of halting their efforts to find and change bulbs. These customers seek out our Magnalight HID lights because they realize the total cost of ownership is much lower than incandescent halogen lights. Their goals are closely aligned with customers concerned about 'going green,' who want to reduce energy consumption and landfill use. As more customers react to global warming concerns, they are starting to connect the dots, realizing that HID's attributes deliver 'green' advantages. It's really a win-win situation for the users of HID lights and the environment of planet Earth," concluded Rob. While a significant investment is often required to "go green" and save the environment (i.e. buying a more fuel efficient car), High Intensity Discharge lights are a natural and easy transition. Incandescent lights will fail over a normal course of usage, so replacing old spotlights and flashlights with new HID powered lights is simply a matter of being aware of the choice.
