Trusted: With global distribution exceeding a half-million units over the last six years; more enthusiasts chose Morimoto over any other aftermarket ballast in the world. By adopting everything that was good about the out-going design and tossing the rest out the window, the XB55 2.0 excels in every way.

Reliability: When two of the best names in ballasts get together to create something new, good things happen. The new XB is essentially a Hylux + Morimoto mash up, and we are proud to bring their new ballast baby to North America! Designed to last for 2500 hours and we're confident they will. The powerful AS15-G4 IC chip recognizes outside system faults such as a loose high voltage connection, and after one misfire will cut power rather than potentially self-destruct. The software is proprietary to this ballast alone.

Protected: The die-cast aluminum shell houses a 100% potted circuit board; eliminating any chance of moisture damage. The AMP SuperSeal three-pin connector from TE Connectivity between the igniter and the ballast ensures the safety of this crucial output.

Compact: Slim 18mm body will mount almost anywhere, and that's OK because they're fully sealed from the elements. There are four mounting points cast directly into their shell, no spare brackets to mess with.

Versatile: Since the igniter cord can be unplugged from the HID ballast computer, you can easily change from AMP to D2S or vice-versa (without the use of unreliable adapters, that is). Likewise, if an igniter does happen to go bad, it can easily be replaced.

Fast, Friendly and Efficient: Power hungry HID ballast replacements never work well with tricky CanBus systems, but the new Morimoto XB55 2.0 ballast consumes less than HALF of the start current than the previous model did. Far less than Denso, Mitsubishi, or FastBright which makes their ability to reach full intensity a more efficient process.

Modern: Like all modern OEM ballasts: the XB has relocated igniters far closer to the HID bulb. The lack of high voltage transmitted through wiring drastically reduces EMI/RFI (radio interference). Total system reliability is also improved by shielding the main circuit board from the static produced by these high voltage bursts on start up.

Functional Work of Art: Designed in California by Morimoto's engineer, Yoshi Ishida, the Morimoto XB55 2.0 HID Ballasts are just as good looking on the outside as they are well-engineered on the inside. Stainless Steel hardware. TechFlex braided insulation. Embossed circuitry on the shell. We most admire how the laser-engraved graphics on the rear incorporate the potting-ports into the design. All about the details!

Mature: The XB55 2.0 features countless advancements from the most popular OEM ballasts. In terms of modern headlight tech, High Intensity Discharge is now fully matured; and therefore the aftermarket gets the full benefit engineering progress in the OEM world. Time will tell, but we doubt there ever be an "XB 3.0" ballast from Morimoto. This could be the grand finale, folks!
