Product Details

Rivaled: A long standing debate in the automotive aftermarket...Morimoto, or Hylux ballasts? Often regarded as the "other" great in the HID lighting industry; Hylux has been building reputable parts for about as long as we can remember - you just couldn't buy them from TRS, until now!

Standards: The Hylux 2A88 EU-Spec Canbus HID ballasts produce an industry-standard 35w of power which typically provides around 3200 lumens on a quality 4300K Bulb. They will accept a 9-16V range for input and will power all HID bulbs with industry-standard AMP connectors.

Convenient: They are compact and can fit most anywhere under the hood. No need to worry about moisture intrusion, as their shell is completely water resistant and the circuitry inside is protected by potting.

Powerful:Their powerful igniters are also capable of quick re-strikes without fail. Well designed circuitry and igniter setup results in a relatively fast warm up time for the HID bulbs when powered by a Hylux ballast, but without requiring much power.

CanBus Capable: The 2A88 has an integrated error canceler on the input line, making them compatible with most European vehicles without any extra gear required to cancel "lamp out" errors.

Backed: By a full Three-Year warranty from the manufacturer, you know they're putting their money where their mouth is. If these ballasts fail under warranty, you're covered!

Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our killer reputation. Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars, trucks, and bikes. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact Us

Not worth the 40$ in savings

Brenden Giersdorf Reviewed: 10.16.2018

Ballast died after 3 months, the so called "3 year warranty" involves a very difficult return process that is not even worth the time without a headlight to pay return shipping to roll the dice again. The rubber connectors are not even remotely close to waterproof, prepare to use a lot of dielectric grease to make sure they are water proof. Do yourself a favor and buy the Morimoto XB35 ballasts and their stand alone canbus eliminator. Taking off your bumper 5 times between install, trouble shooting, and re-installing a different superior product is not worth the small savings. For what its worth, the Morimoto units have made ignition and warmup faster and overall light output brighter as well. The difference in quality from the box presentation to how well they are made is night and day between the two products.

Very good In for the price

Klayton de Almeida Reviewed: 08.22.2018

Hylux 35W Ballast are very good in comparison with other so called ''premium''AMP Ballasts.They are fitted with 4500K Morimoto bulbs, and while it outputs a crispy white light with a hint of yellow just like oem, it cannot match the OEM Xenons brightness. I have two other cars with OEM xenon.Thanks TRS ultra fast shipping and a very polite person on Chat!!!

These ballasts are excellent for avoiding having to plug in resistors that get super hot to avoid upsetting the canbus system. But these seem to be of great quality right on par with Morimoto XB35s. Speaking of Morimoto:

Pros/Cons compared to Morimoto ballasts:

Pros: quiet operation, sleek design, integrated canbus error cancellor
Cons: harder to mount, lesser warranty (not by much), integrated igniters (versus replaceable), integrated AMP connectors (versus D2S/AMP capable), non-braided shielding on wires

I'll update later with an extended review since I only installed these this week but they seem to be pretty good so far.

Wonderful ballasts! Zero issues!

I've been running these Hylux ballasts for awhile now. I purchased them before they were available from TRS. I already have a set of the 3Five Morimoto ballasts in a different vehicle and I wanted to see how the Hylux compare. I have only good things to report.

Visually you can see that they are built very well. Although not as artsy as the Morimoto, they still look good.

Warm up time is very fast! Just as fast if not faster than the Morimoto. There is zero RF/EMI noise with them. Other ballasts would trigger a TPMS warning light for a few seconds when turned on, but I've never had an issue with the Hylux.

Side by side with the same bulbs they are just as bright as the Morimoto. I swear by watching them that they may even be a little faster on warm up.

They are efficient and don't draw much current.

They are small in size which allowed me to actually install them in the sealed headlamp housing along with the Morimoto Mini H1 Projector. This is awesome to me! They are completely out of the Michigan elements. The Morimoto would probably also fit although them see to be just a little bit thicker.

All in all I have zero complaints and have been very, very happy with them. We all know that the Morimoto are very high quality, and the Hylux is no different. My Hylux and Morimoto kits are just about the same age, and in that time frame I did have one Morimoto fail.

The Hylux may not be as flashy as the beautiful Morinoto, but you can tell that it was built to work and last. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for new ballasts and for whatever reason may want to use use something other than the Morimoto.
