The stated lifetime is at full voltage in a car.

Mother Suzuki takes care of us, and has installed a series of resistors between battery and bulb:

Thin wires for plus as well as minus, 2 fuses, and 3 sets of contacts (ignition, starter cut-out, HI/LO switch)

On cars they use dedicated resistors for daytime driving, but Suzuki solved it more elegantly.

The Night breakers made a huge difference in my car over the last few years but as I rarely use my car since getting the Burgy I swapped out the bulbs this morning for the ones in the bike.
Big difference in brightness on the back of the roller door, hopefully tonight will see a vast improvement.

Had these Osram H4 bulb on bike for over 3 years (60,000+) without any problem when bike got hit by truck and bike scrap by insurance. At that time these 2 Osram light bulb still work perfectly and show no sign of weakness or failure.

Last week receive 2 Philips Extreme Vision + 130% H4 bulb to install on replacement bike these suppose to be even more powerful than the Osram.

These type of H4 bulb offer so much more visibility distance and better light at night than Suzuki OEM units. Perfect help for aging eyes and also receive additional $10.00 off selling price during promotion when I order these.

Are the new Philips a direct fit and do they use more or less power? Anyone try them for a long time?
The Philips like the Osram are direct fit replacement bulb, (plug & play same 3 prong connection) wattage is 55/60 watt exact same as OEM wattage, Osram and Philips are competitor who battle each other in market, one come out with new product the other follow as well a few month later.

Actual bulb life claim by Philips is about 30% better than when purchase first set of Osram H4 Night Hawk.

If they are as good and have as good life as previous Osram bulb me will be happy, if they are even better me will be even happier.

7 hour ride yesterday through some stunning countryside and some shite back roads where cows roamed freely (thanks to the airshocks ,darkside tyre and frugal mans airhawk, my arse came out relatively unscathed) all of which got me back after dark.

Lights are a VAST improvement over OEM bulbs, I can now see skippy and slow down well in advance.
