Has anyone had any experience with the Narva 'Plus 50' halogen globes that are now being sold. These are replacement globes for headlights (not driving lights) and they claim there is no increase in current draw.

That is correct, there is no increase in current draw.
They are a Xenon bulb, use low pressure, have a longer service life, more resistent to vibration, not affected by handling the glass, produce substantially less heat and do not emit the high UV which is so damaging to the modern plastic lenses, and of course improved light output.
Soon, I imagine you will not be able to buy anything else.

Yes, I have had them in a Pajero and now in a Patrol. They are definately an improvement for low beam, still not sure about high. But I figure that most of driving is done with low so they are worth it. Cheapest opgrade you can make.

Truckster I was wong yesterday, but not today. Does not faze me at all being wong. I just wish I was perfect, but alas that is just not possible.

However, today, the box I have here says nothing about not touching the glass. They are a pair of Sylvania Xenon bulbs I was given as a sample to try, and thought it was about time I fitted them, and sent down to the workshop this afternoon to fit them. Some brands are obviously different.

truckster and thepublican bummer hey looks like you both wrong again and ozi right again maybe you better apoligize i think they say something like egg on your faces
Xenon low pressure lamps are a recent innovation and replace many of the halogen products which have been popular for years. Xenon lamps have many advantages over the halogen product with nearly none of the disadvantages. Specific features of the Xenon range include: Low pressure gas for greater safety and efficiency Longer life due to vibration resistant filament design Lamps produce less heat than conventional halogen lamps Lamps do not emit damaging UV rays Unaffected by handling unlike conventional halogen lamps.
