The SMART 55w Canbus ballasts are relatively slim design for what they are. They put out 55 watts of power and are available in a pair of 2 only. 55w HID kits put out about 25% more light over 35w HID kits, significantly improving your visibility on the road. A must have for every driver who lives in a rural area or needs the extra light! Since the purpose of artificial lights are to replace the sun, you want as bright of a light as possible, within reason. This kit will give you that.
Water Proof: Yes
The 55w SMART Can-bus ballasts are a direct replacement for any aftermarket HID ballasts. The 55w Smart Canbus ballasts have a built-in smart program with a DSP chip that will work in most vehicles. In short, when a vehicle comes with a can-bus lighting system, it can cause problems when installing an aftermarket lighting kit, resulting in an error message on the dashboard, flickering, or no power delivery at all. A Canbus lighting kit will fix that.
In general, we recommend the Smart kit for Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, Ford, and VW. As these are the vehicles we tend to see that benefit from them. But they can be installed on any vehicle no problem.
If you own a 3rd-4th Gen Ram Truck, a relay harness may be required on top of these if the lights continue to flicker or cause problems.
Note: 55w ballasts will wash out the color of the HID due to an increased power to the bulb (example: an 8000k might look like a 6000k) The added heat can potentially reduce the reflectivity inside housings, in some cases melt smaller plastic housings (which is why they are NOT recommended for fog lights).
