OK, so saying that the new Osram Night Breaker Plus offers longer life might be slightly misleading – you’re not going to live to 200 years old after buying a set of these headlight bulbs. No, the new Nightbreaker Plus bulbs are a development on the original version that Osram claim will last up to 50% longer than before.
That’s pretty good, especially when you consider that the Nightbreaker Plus offers the same benefits as before – up to 90% more light than standard Osram bulbs as well as 10% whiter light.
The extra brightness translates into a longer beam, up to 35 metres further up the road than standard, and on a dark road that can make a hell of a difference to your safety and confidence. I upgraded the bulbs on my Focus last year and it really does make night-time driving easier.
