    halogen lights

    HI all,
    I thought I was the only loon slapping a computer in my car

    A bit of an odd question I bought a halogen bulb for a diff progect. And it has 3 leads why? I picked it for its size and shape

    Its a Sylvania 9007 st

    Also how hot do they get? I was already told "hot as hell" But I can't find that temp on the chart


    Thanks

    well it could be a dual filament bulb? have you checked out their website for info...

    it could be
    - ground
    - +12V first filament
    - +12V 2nd filament (to produce higher output similar to high beams for cars)

    a 9007 is a high beam/low beam combination capsule. They get very hot, and heed the warning to not touch the capsule with your bare hands. The SilverStar that you have is also very pricey, so instead of being out a couple of bucks for a low end one, you will be out 20 bucks.

    If you use latex gloves when handling the bulbs, they will last longer.
