ion lights

Hi everyone,

As I have some experience with so called ion lights in the course of my
work I am tempted to throw in a couple bits. These bulbs are high pressure
xenon gas filled gas discharge lamps. Advantages: almost a point source,
therefore easier to focus, much brighter(emission from a volume unit) and
wide emmision spectrum. Compared to incandescent its shifted to UV,
therefore light appears blue. Requires high voltage pulse for starting,
after that operates on low voltage DC current. The aftermarket kit sells
for about $1.2k. Regards,
