Solo 10w LED Spotlights Failing

Postby Rb101 » Tue Dec 10, 2019 12:12 am

Hi all,
Two of the LED spotlight in the kitchen have failed over the last 12 months and another is now continually flickering. A further two failed this week but are now working again. The lights are solo 10w led lights - does anyone have any suggestions as to the cause? I think I’ll have to get an electrician in to look at it as I, concerned it could be a fire safety issue.
Thanks in advance

Simply Build It

They look like they come from the lower end of the price scale, cheap lamps often do fail before "They should"

I did note one seller is offering a 5 year warrantee on them, but the next thing says "a new and improved version is available"

Which makes me think they have had a lot fail. But that said how can something be new and improved, how can it be improved if it is new?

I would just buy something else that you are happy with and change them as and when they fail. I would suggest you go to a dedicated lighting shop and have a chat with them.
