DRL leds from V-LEDs (only 5 months?)
 
I bought a pair of DRL lights from V-Leds in December. Very bright, all OK. But today (5 month later) one burned off and the other has some leds off. I sent a email to V-LEDs today ( I hope that they take care about this). but the warranty policy is for 90 days :confused:.

I am concern about quatity for $58. :mad::eek:

Same happened to me. Ordered Putcos to replace them and one arrived with a short right out of the package.

LEDs don't do well in confined applications that generate heat. The heat kills them quicker. People post reviews of how they used the bulbs and how long they lasted. Also, Vleds site shows not to use certain bulbs in DRL applications. In my case for swapping DRLs to LED on my WK2 SRT8 I found only one bulb on their site that didn't mention anything about DRL use, and reviews seemed to be positive when used as a DRL bulb.

For info: V-LEDS now has a note on the bottom of their web page for their bulbs (at 5K WHITE PLATINUM 20 LED 7W BACK-UP/TURN SIGNAL LIGHT BULBS 3157 3156 4057 | 1 PAIR), namely:
"WARNING
Not for use in DRL applications, will void warranty."

Putcos seem to have been performing well for members here.
