Premstätten, Austria and Munich, Germany (25 October 2023) – ams OSRAM, the market leader in automotive lighting, is expanding its renowned series of LED retrofit lamps. With the street-approved OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® H1-LED, drivers can legally, easily and cost-effectively upgrade their conventional H1 halogen low-beam and high-beam head-lights to LED technology. 

Thanks to the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® H4 and H7 LED lamps, motorists in Germany can already benefit from LED retrofit lamps on more than 200 models from different vehicle manufacturers. The launch of the new NIGHT BREAKER® H1-LED opens up this benefit to at least 19 further models with H1 sockets. The number of compatible models is ever growing – the full list can be found here.

The OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® H1-LED produces bright white light with a color temperature of up to 6,000 Kelvin. A special feature of the LED retrofit lamp is its low level of glare, which is up to 40 percent less than the permitted maximum value². Despite its high output, the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® H1-LED consumes up to 55 percent less energy than conventional lamps thanks to its advanced LED technology. This also has a positive effect on the lamp’s longevity. Together with the specially developed compact, vibration-resistant design, it results in a service life up to five times longer³. Upgrading from halogen to the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® H1-LED does not require any modifications to the vehicle so anyone with a reasonable level of competence can do it, or it can be done the next time the car is being serviced.

The OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® H1-LED is vailable now for 144.99 euros (RRP).
ams OSRAM is constantly working on wider approval of the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER® LEDs. Retrofit lamps are available for a variety of contemporary motorcycles, classic cars, trucks and motorhomes in addition to cars.
