    Below are conversation of KBcarstuff

    Hi,

    The Xtreme kit will come with a relay harness to power the ballasts directly from the battery however the Xtreme ballasts are true low draw ballasts (only 4.5A on a cold start) meaning that you should be able to power them directly from the OEM wiring.

    Sounds good, how do you think the installation like in CT200h?
    I had to connect the ground to battery (Honda Pilot) for another brand which use Philips bulb and ballast, is it required from this Xtreme ballasts?

    Hi,
    Xtreme ballasts are super low draw. I have them installed in my Toyota 4 runer (auto) and no issues.

    Hi,
    You would need the H11 fitment meaning that you would need to get item number XT-4k-h11p

    So if it can be powered by the OEM wiring, do I need to hook up the relay?
    What have people used for the ground?

    I think cl promotes whatever is sponsored by a paying vendor. For those that aren't (like say ddm tuning or some other competitor) ... im guessing looked down upon

    The relay is not required with any 35W HID kit. HID lights pull full rated current at start-up to arc the HID lights then once arced the ballast backs off the current. 35W uses 2.92 amperes at startup ( 35/12). Even 55 watt only uses 4.58 amperes. The OEM lights are on a 40 ampere circuit. Just FYI under the fuse cover in the engine fuse box there is a direct connect to the 12 volt battery, should you ever need it.
