some of you are familiar with my quest for HID lights in the country where I live. :mad: well today I went to some specialist lighting stores and they had no clue what I was talking about (English is not widely spoken here). Anyhow I told them I wanted security lights, and they gave me this catalogue with something called HIQ lights. :confused: They were cheap, so this can't be what I want. Or maybe I'm lucky and it is? I'd appreciate any advice.

HID = High Intensity Discharge. Basically consists of 3 types, High Pressure Sodium, Metal Halide, and Mercury Vapor...the last of which being pretty much useless in our hobby. Sorry, never heard of HIQ.

Yet there is not even a single name for the technology: it is called HID, HIQ, CD, or CDM, depending on whom you read
Found thison the net...looks as if they are one and the same, so...you're just lucky!!! Just make sur you get a High Pressure Sodium or Metal Halide.

They have a High intensity Quartz lighting. I googled around its mainly for underwater apps and notice some use for commercial. Not much on it though except the color temp is really white.
