    And tax fast food.

    LEDs in cars are also unreliable. They can't take the heat of a sunny day. They fail prematurely because of that.

    That Depends where they are made.

    Good ones cost big money.

    They make a lot of heat internally and I doubt the sun has little to do with the Failures.


    Only the ones made in England are good. LOL...

    British craftsmanship really is something to behold.

    It's like getting the best of American craftsmen and asking the people that taught them to do the job instead.

    It really is first class.

    If we are in a about 1898, that is patently true. The Cornnwall mines and machinery were the space shuttle of their day.

    And England had the only useable pencil lead [graphite] mine on earth until the germans started mixing the components together in liquid form.

    Oh, like London bridge for instance. that one is in Arizona now as it was crumbling (London bridge is falling down). Our Brooklyn Bridge was built a few years after your London one, but it is still standing proud. Interesting story: http://www.destination360.com/north-.../london-bridge I hope your latest bridge stands up for a while.

    Bob,

    I Bought 8 of these about two months ago to replace some 65W floods in a 6" can. The floods acted like heat lamps. I would not use them in the summer here in South Florida. I measured the 65W flood temps at about 150dF after 10 seconds and the LED's only get to 87dF after 10 minutes.

    These LEDs have a pretty close temperature color output to the standard floods.

    The LED's stay COOL and dim beautifully. They are actually CREE CR6's http://www.creeledlighting.com/Produ...ights/CR6.aspx and relabeled for Home Depot.

    I now use the floods all the time. See picture of my Kitchen with the CREE LEDs
