hi guys just wondering if anyone has had experience with the new aurora led sunken spotlights, they are sealed units and supposed to be guaranteed for 5 years, i fitted 8 in a kitchen the other month and 3 of them have now failed all at different times, the wholesaler does not keep them as stock items so i have to go back and disconnect the faulty unit and revisit to install new one oh and they don't just go out they strobe like a disco light

We Use Aurora lights alot and have never had any problems with any of them TBH. Were they fitted as per the manufacturer's instructions? Do they have the correct free air distance around them? If so then if you were to goto Aurora direct then I am sure they would help you out.
 
I've had a few problems with some LEDs going out after a few weeks makes you look stupid when you've told customer they last 50 000 hours
 
We don't use aurora fittings (not for any bad reasons, we just use different ones) but we've found that, for floodlights/streetlights/corn lamps, it's better to have a separate driver and LED combination for reliability. Guess it's down to the electronics running that little bit cooler but it has made a difference on the number of call backs we get.

ps Sorry to the OP for a slightly off topic ramble...
