I don't know anything about the long arc type bulbs. I do know that the wiki article is pretty incomplete, short-arc xenon HID is now used for many different applications. Some of the high end import cars use them for headlights. You can even get small units that you can wear for desert racing.

[QUOTE=sanking]Thanks. I will get the technical information on the specific bulb in question.

Just curious, what would be some of the major functional differences between short-arc and long-arc in this type of system?
