There's a big difference in the lifespan of these two ranges. The X-treme Vision +130 bulbs last approximately 450 hours, which is around the average lifetime of an upgrade maximum performance bulbs.

However, due to the power needed to give you that extra boost of light on the road, the Philips RacingVision has an expected lifetime of approximately 200 hours. At first glance, this appears to be a significantly shorter lifespan in comparison the the X-treme Vision. It's worth noting, however, that although these bulbs have a shorter lifespan than the X-treme Vision +130 range, they more than make up for this on the road at night (hello, long, bright beam!).
