Thumbs down Platinum RED 7W High power LED brake lights

yeah so i figured id toss this up for the next guy and so on...

i bought these bulbs for my taillights not too long ago (4 months ago) and well they went last night. i mean i forked over 79.99 for these bulbs then and i really didnt expect them to only last 4 months.(i know its a redic price for bulbs but yea)---this was a RED LED acted as my brake light--

btw- i dont DD my jeep either so itll probably go sooner if you do DD



link from vleds-

Re: Platinum RED 7W High power LED brake lights

That is pretty poor, I'd have thought LEDs would last years without problems.

Great heads up for others though.
