    Evening all,

    Has anyone been fitting "Lamp & Gear" 4W LED's?

    I've fitted quite a few, mainly in shop lighting to existing fittings, and have had a few failures, some within weeks. Some have been in downlighters and some in spotlight fittings (not enclosed).

    Just wondering if I've been unlucky!

    I have had major problems with GU10 LEDs. You need to measure the supply voltage, as if its under 220v then the lamps do start to fail.

    Ive used a lot of kosnic 5 watt Led's. Only ones that have gone down are the dimmable ones. Normal ones have been fine
