    Strada HID and Vado Xenon

    Lume Strada HID10 $280 vs.Lume Vado Xenon 20 $250 ?
    what's the diff: xenor vs. hid?
    know the lumen ratings for these two?
    thses two seems to be the best that i can afford, with cash, today.

    leaning towards the Strada, due to it's longer (1000 hr vs 150 hr)) bulb life.

    The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards & its fighting by fools.

    Xenon, in Lume's use, is just another tungsten bulb as far as I know. It most likely uses xenon gas in the envelope like other bulbs use halogen gas to extend the life of the filament.

    There IS such a thing as xenon discharge bulbs, but nobody uses them for bike lights...only theatrical, film, and projector uses. They're even more expensive than regular HID or HMI lights.
