I've been using some LED lighting for a few of years now.
And the mortality rate when we started, was not good. Back to Lowes and Home Depot at least a half dozen times..

Lately, we've only had one lamp start to blink a bit. (old globe bulb from HD)
I don't think we've had any burn-out failures, since the prices started getting lower..

I expect a couple of failures with this new batch from Dollar Tree, but at $1 each, I can live with it.

We get over-voltage from the grid here and sometimes there are spikes.
Like the day when my old Sanyo Mini-split got zapped by a little power 'blink'.

I've only had one (1) brand/model of LED bulb that hasn't had one failure (yet)..
And HD doesn't sell them anymore. And they cost too much elsewhere.

Saw these guys 'reviewing' some, when they can find them..
Found: $1 LED light bulbs at Dollar Tree | BudgetLightForum.com

Cheers,
Rich
