Thread: Fire Foxes FF4 Spare Globe

    Default Fire Foxes FF4 Spare Globe

    was just wondering if i could get some info about the globe that is in the FF4? what type is it? where do i get a spare? is it a typical HID type bulb as normally a HID has a inner section which makes the arc and then a outer section that houses a inert gas if iím correct? the FF4 only has the inner section without the outer globe bit

    The outer glass is for additional protection (inner is very fragile) however its also typically UV stop glass. UV is "bad news" stuff.

    ohh so what your saying is that the FF4 has no UV protection compared to a "conventional" HID globe? i am running a uv filter on the front of mine so will that help keep it in check?

    I don't know how well it is filtered. I don't have any transition lenses to check it with, or what the result would mean. UV comes from sunlight though too.. I mean it's everywhere. I try not to shine the HID in my face.
