What is the difference between Xenon High Intensity Discharge bulbs and regular HID?

Xenon lamps are considered to be a special type of HID due to a few factors. Unlike most HID lamps that do not reach full brightness until they are hot enough, Xenon lamps do not need to warm-up, and provide instant bright light. Xenon lamps simulate daylight better, and the light is more natural compared to other HID lamps.
