lasted any longer than the incandescents or CFLs that they replaced.
So you're right, they can screw up almost anything. Had a couple dead
out of the packages, too. Since all of the current lights, no matter
what type, are the products of that great Chinese QC, it's no wonder.
The LED bulb failures were total, not just a few defective individual
LEDs croaking like on a cheap flashlight. And this is with a
stationary floor lamp, not on any sort of vibrating tool. At least
the dead ones don't have any mercury.
