    If the LED's cost $$'s and the old-fashioned incandescents cost c's, doesn't that say something about the cost & environmental impact (and carbon intensity) of LED's? I resent having the choice taken away from me. I *have* replaced my high duty cycle lights with LEDs (and taken several back for replacement after disappointingly quick failure) but for others, replacing one infrequently used incandescent with another (while I still have stash of contraband) is more economical, whichever way you look at it.

    Warranty means you can replace 2$ light bulb for free, you just need to pay 15$ for shipping. And they will send it back on your cost, saying it's user damage. I know, I have a lamp that burned one per month. I asked for warranty replacement after 3 packs did not last 1 season.

    You *could* just blame it on the Chinesium…. But, a great many of the ‘GOOD’ LED bulbs also come from China. So, it would seem that the problem is related to building items to a price. They are built to sell for a certain price, and everyone in the chain from digging the materials out of the ground, to ringing the cash register has to make a profit. To get lamps that sell for a dollar, you must cut every corner that science enables you to cut. The result is, lamps in which the devices are driven too hard, and therefore, too hot. Heat will destroy the weakest component in the mix. In the failed lamps that I have examined, that is usually one of the LEDs. I’ve never seen a current regulator fail. The current is usually set by a pair of resistors in parallel. If you clip one of them off (The smallest resistance value) you will greatly reduce the current used, without a tremendous difference in light output, and will extend the life of even the ‘cheapies’ by a large amount. This, of course, is something that should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing. Over-driven LEDs, and inadequate heat sinking is the cause for the failure of the cheapies.

    The reason why will shock you and they know how to make them last but they dont last because if they did last they will be breaking a thing similar to a contract that is over 100 years old and that Phillips learned a very long time ago that if the lights last for long they lose money because people will buy and eventually they wont need them anymore and stop buying as much so they lose money. Well the contract was really a cartel in the 1930s but still keep making them so they don't last. But the cartel eventually fell apart so yeah they do it for the money.

    Some of the "manufacturers" use rebranding when they buy cheap LEDs from Ali put them in a package (which is probably also from Ali) and sell them at a, in worst cases, 10 times value. They get through with it by giving the warranty. I noticed this when I worked as a supplier. Most of the items I found in stores were from Ali.

    I was able to significantly prolong the cheap LED bulb life by relapsing it's LED by more durable/quality ones. New LEDs can handle more current -> operates not in max current -> lives a lot longer. Resoldering process is very easy when you use a "LED Lamp Remover Station Heating Plate" from aliexpress: 4$ :) Some of my LED bulbs are operational for about 5 years (indoor everyday use on a kitchen ~3/hours a day)

    to get warranty ALWAYS make a copy of your cash-register-ticket (proof of purchase) and put that in the BOX of your leds, so you'll always have it near you when you might need it. then contact the seller about the issue, he'll ask you for that ticket or invoice. In europe only 2 obligatory first years are for the reseller, all longer warranty you'll need to contact the manufacturer's helpdesk. (i guess in US there is the mandatory 90days warranty (damn, that's only 3 months... sooo litlle) where you can go to the reseller/vendor, later on you have to contact the manufacturer.)

    Just remove the stupid glass and make a hull water and finger proof with some air flow or a heatsink. For most indoor applications you don't need much protection, a stainless steel mesh wrapped around and connected to ground should make it safe. Also it's way more efficient in a low voltage direct current system like a car. If I made a house electrical system, I'd probably run a 12 volts DC system for the lights, power it with some 12V batteries connected to a wind turbine on the roof. Free light. You could get parts for cheap, just use a car alternator.

    In case anyone is curious. The reason most lights stop working after a short amount of time is because they're supposed to. Their lifespans are kept artificially short so that you buy more in the future; because even very early commercially available light bulbs had incredibly long life-spans. This is demonstrated as the longest continuously running light is a lightbulb currently at a fire station that has been running since 1901.
