Pioneering innovation that turns heads –
OSRAM’s first street-legal LED replacement lamp
NIGHT BREAKER LED
Bringing light to life
A shining revolution in technology and design: OSRAM’s first LED low beam lamp1 approved for road use is an innovation leader. With the first H7-LED to have been approved as a legal retrofit low beam lamp for installation in halogen-based headlights in line with the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO). OSRAM, the No. 1 in automotive lighting, developed the NIGHT BREAKER LED from scratch and put it through its paces in collaboration with TÜV-Süd. Approved by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) for a wide range of headlights and vehicle types, with the NIGHT BREAKER LED, you too can now experience the superior performance of state-of-the-art lighting technology in your car. For a brand-new driving experience day and night.
A lamp making history
LED technology for everyone
Benefit from better vision and visibility and at the same time, reduced glare of all other road users. This powerful LED lamp with a cool colour temperature similar to daylight brings up to 220% more brightness2 onto the streets. And it also takes the design of your vehicle to the next level! Compared to regular halogen lamps, the NIGHT BREAKER LED also ups the game with its vibration resistance and the fact that it lasts up to 5x longer, ensuring you get more driving pleasure out of it. The quality you expect from OSRAM – manufactured in a certified OSRAM plant in Italy. Upgrade to LED technology now!

To be sure that you have bought an original OSRAM LED product, OSRAM offers its customers the so-called Trust Program. This makes it possible to identify counterfeits. Further details can be found here: The OSRAM Trust Program
The design of the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER LED is characterised by its uniqueness in the combination of two functions - "heat dissipation" and "optimum reflector design" . The optics are rounded off by a compact lamp size for optimum fitting accuracy in the headlamp.
Furthermore, the lamps are vibration-resistant to impacts, for example due to uneven road surfaces.
Quality and performance make every OSRAM product an OSRAM original. Unfortunately, product piracy has reached a point where it is difficult to visually distinguish between original and counterfeit.
OSRAM has therefore integrated security features into the production process that allow you to authenticate your lamps online in two simple steps.
Approval for the legal NIGHT BREAKER LED is a very complex process for each vehicle model. Therefore, no statement on a concrete time estimate is possible at this point in time, we hope for your understanding. OSRAM is continuously working on further developments. You can always find the current country and vehicle list here.
For vehicles declared as officially approved by OSRAM, the complete light distribution has been verified according to ECE R112. For vehicles that are not declared as approved by OSRAM, installation and use in road traffic will result in the invalidation of the operating permit and the loss of insurance cover.
No, the laws of the country in which the vehicle is registered also apply abroad. This means that a vehicle cannot be objected to in a country where it is not registered. Countries with left-hand traffic (e.g. Great Britain) are an exception. Here, the driver must switch back to halogen lamps, even if the vehicle is registered in the home country.
In certain vehicles, the two electrical base contacts of the lamp are used for mechanical contacting on the halogen adapter. With the H7 LED, the two electrical contacts are not positioned in the same place as with the halogen lamp. Therefore, a specific H7 LED adapter is necessary.
The H7 LED is much more efficient than the H7 halogen lamp. This can lead to a false error message on vehicles. To avoid this false error message, an additional load resistor must be installed. This increases the total power to a level that is above the error detection and the false error message is avoided.
LED lamps offer more brightness, a longer service life and a higher colour temperature than halogen lamps. The light of the new NIGHT BREAKER LED is up to 220 percent brighter than the legal minimum requirements for halogen lamps and comparable in colour to daylight. The lamp thus creates strong contrasts and a wide range. This improves the driver's vision and the visibility of the car in road traffic.
Thanks to LED technology, it shines up to five times longer than a comparable halogen variant, needs to be replaced correspondingly less often and also consumes less energy.
