    Q: Color Temperature Explained:
    A:
    Color Temperature: 3000K 
    3000K emits GOLDEN YELLOW color and offers superior penetration power during adverse weather epically in dense fog. The applications of the 3000K kit aim more towards secondary lighting apparatus such as high beam and fog lights. This is the color temperature that will catch all the attention on the road. 

    Color Temperature: 4300K
    The light appears fairly white, and has light yellowish hue when reflected off the road identical to the OEM HID equipped vehicles. It is ideal for customers who does a lot of back road or canyon driving and need the optimal visibility. 

    Color Temperature: 6000K
    6000K emits pure white light with very slight and barely noticeable tint of blue and purple. This color is for customers who is looking for pure performance white while improving the looks of their headlight. 

    Color Temperature: 8000K
    ORACLE 8000K has an approximately 3000lm output, which is about 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and slightly less light output compared to the 6000K. While it has a bit lesser light output, it emits bluer light than the 6000K. 

    Color Temperature: 10000K 
    ORACLE 10000K has an approximately 2800lm output, which is more than 2x the light output of the traditional halogen light. 10000K produces a deep blue light output approaching violet and the blue is noticeably deeper than the 8000K. 

    Color Temperature: 12000K
    This color temperature puts out a deep bluish violet light and is deeper colored than the 10000K. It is for customer who is looking for the most extreme and most exotic looking light output.

    Q: What are "Demon Eyes/Angel Eyes/Halos"?
    A:
    Demon Eyes/Angel Eyes etc. are an Attractive and Legal alternative to the ugly OEM Daytime Running Lights our vehicles come with. Developed originally by BMW, the "halos" surround the outside edge of the reflectors in your headlight housings. When your car is on the rings will light up just like your normal DRLs would. You can choose to deactivate the DRLs (that bulb will still be used as your high beam) or use the DRLs in conjunction with your halos.

    Q: What are the rings made from?
    A:
     ORACLE SMD - or "Surface Mount Diode" Halos utilize an advanced type of LED chip that can produce brilliant light output while only consuming a small amount of power. The SMD chips are installed onto a CAD designed 6-layer PCB (Printed Circuit Board) which is very sturdy and will not break if pressured. The PCB can easily be mounted to a headlight housing using the pre-installed 3M adhesive tape backing. 

    A: ORACLE PLASMA - Plasma LED Halo Rings are the latest advancement in Solid-State Lighting Technology. The Plasma Halos feature dozens of semiconductors which make direct contact to the circuit board essentially turning the entire Plasma ring into one LED. The design makes for optimal thermal management, high packing density, and overall high performance light output. This new technology is not only brighter than previous LED Halo Rings but it also features very consistent light output and appears as one solid ring rather than a ring of individual rings. 

    A: ORACLE CCFL - Headlight Halo Kits use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting XE technology, which delivers a smooth and even halo illumination. CCFL halos have an expected lifetime of 50,000 hours of continuous use and come with a Lifetime Warranty. CCFL Halos require an external Power Supply. ORACLE "XE" Power Inverters are included in every ORACLE CCFL Halo Kit System.

    Q: What colors are considered legal?
    A:
    White and Amber are the legal colors Nationwide. Red and Blue are considered emergency vehicle lights and are not legal. Driving Laws can vary from state to state, please verify with your state laws, prior to making your halo color selection.

    Q: What kind of look am I going for?
    A:
    Each of our halo styles offer a different look. CCFL halos have a soft ambient glow and a smooth output. Show up great at night, however in the daylight they are not as pronounced. SMD halos offer an intense appearance and a bright output. Can be clearly seen during the day and at night. These are our most popular to date. Plasma halos combine both technologies of CCFL and SMD offering a highly intense light output with a smooth glow. These are by far our brightest halos.
