father of my friend is getting new bulbs every year for free by using warranty and some weird laws in my country that state "evey elctronic device must have 3 year warranty" or something like that

I have a whole box of dead led lights that "have a warranty". I bought them through Amazon. They had good reviews. The companies never respond to emails and the warranty is useless. I'm even madder than Electroboom!

Manufacturer can make lights that last significantly longer like the Dubai bulbs but they only make money when you buy replacements so they purposely make them built to fail so they make more money. There was at least one company that made extremely long lasting bulbs but they suffered money issues as a result. I don't remember if they switched to built to fail or they went out.

i have tons of LED bulbs i just dono what to do with them they not dead, they just loose a lot of brightness all of them rated for 10,000 hours, but after a year of using (10 hrs a day, around 3650 hours used), most of them loose half of the brightness (measure with my lux meter)

I save the receipts of all lightbulbs and which they don't last the 15, 17, or whatever years the package says, the store exchanges them for new ones. I haven't had to spend any money on light bulbs since LED bulbs became common. :P

Buying that "LED" crap is a fools errand. It uses one tenth the electricity of incandescent bulbs, but the bulbs are many times more expensive. How long would it take for the additional expense of LED bulbs to make up the difference with incandescent? 100 years? The worst part is that the LEDs don't last near as long as advertised. Is infuriating to pay the additional cost for LED and they crap out in just months. I have incandescent bulbs that were originally installed over 10 years ago and only cost 25 cents. If I would have replaced them with LEDs, I would have spent much more than that and the electricity savings would not have made up the difference.

Seems my LED lights are failing as quickly as my CFL lights were, which was about the same as incandescent bulbs. I have one CFL that’s been running in an outdoor pole light for 10+ years, so the technology can work. If designed correctly.

You should talk about how in the 30-40s all the lightbulb companies came together and voted on how long bulbs should last. They were losing money because lightbulbs would never go out, there are lightbulbs from the 20s that are still working today. It’s the lightbulb conspiracy, it’s horrible horrible stuff on how companies purposely make things deteriorate so you’ll continue to buy them like phones, cars, TVs, etc

in Germany they have warranty on them for a least a year. I just bought eight bulbs for a chandelier, for 5 euros each. they fail after half a year. So: 1. buy led bulbs that fail 2. get them exchanged und warranty 3. infinite bulbs until company is bankrupt And nature is very happy because of all the electronic waste of course

Huh. I have only ever had like 4 or 5 die, and I often buy dirt cheap ones. And the ones that died were in a ceiling fan fixture that made the LEDs flicker when the fan was on, so I attribute that mostly to an old lighting fixture that was designed for incandescent lighting.

Minimum warranty here is 2 years, razer provides 1 year warranty but this is not America, 2 year warranty obligated. All razer products die in 13 months so u get to ask refund, then make a separate purchase of same razer product which... Comes with 2 year guarantee. Razer products are expensive, they're good while they last but they always die in 13 months. One month after their intended guarantee. If a store says its 1 year guarantee and it's product meant to last, they're breaking the law. Only products which don't get 2 year warranty are products which are meant to be replaced often. U can't buy milk and return it after 2 years because it's gone bad etc.

Lol.... Going back to the store for your warranty will ruin your carbon footprint , and due to cost of manufacture, and the fact that this manufacturing process uses electricity - reliability of the bulb should have a tangeable effect on supposed energy ratings

I'll agree with half your statement. "The led is bad and not the driver." The driver is cheap and substandard causing damage to the led that failed. If you put new leds on the driver you can see it will damage the new ones.

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.
