Most buyers have the expectation that all LEDs will last over 50,000 hours, but is this correct? If it is, it makes low cost LED lighting sound like a good option, but what is the truth?
To investigate this, over the past several months, we have conducted a series of rigorous tests on a variety of low cost LED lights available on the market.
The most startling discovering was that after just 32 days of continuous testing, several of these products had up to 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 a 0% failure rate.
The implications of this can have a sizeable impact on your business. To provide a rounded view of the possible full lifetime costs associated with cheap LED lighting failures, we’ve identified the following costs:
- Product replacement costs = up to £92 each
- Labour rate to replace 1 light = up to £40
- 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 IS IT NOW TIME TO CONSIDER THE LIFETIME COST OF YOUR VEHICLE LED LIGHTING OPTIONS AND START SAVING MONEY?
At Labcraft we uniquely offer a 10 year warranty. We can do this because only high quality Cree LED devices are used in all products and this, combined with Labcraft’s established technical design capabilities, means that your LED light has consistency in light output through the life of the product.
