Most buyers have the expectation that all LEDs will last over 50,000 hours. This makes low cost LED lighting systems sound like a good option ..…
Over the past several months, we have conducted rigorous tests on a variety of low cost LED lights readily available on the market. We found that after just 32 days of continuous testing several of these products had up to a 97% drop in light output, and suffered multiple individual LED failures. That’s in less than 800 hours! Under the same conditions, the Labcraft product had a 0% fall in light output and also a 0% failure rate.
The implications of this can have a sizable impact on your costs. To calculate the possible full lifetime costs associated with cheap LED lighting failures we’ve identified the following:-
• Product replacement costs:
• Labour rate to replace 1 light unit: up to £40.00 each
• Time off the road (loss of business due to downtime): up to £2,000
• Vehicle damage due to poor light: – up to £12,500
So, why does Labcraft quality pay dividends in cost savings to large and small vehicle owners?
