To maintain consistency (in brightness and color) of 2 original 4" SeaSense Strip LEDs I bought/installed in 2005, last year I installed 3 more in my really dark dry storage compartments. Last week I ran the boat and all my electronics before this cold snap and I noticed that a few of my original lights (6 LEDs in each strip) are not lighting up. I checked online and the company claims a 100,000 hr life for the product. Since 2005 I have probably used them 250 hrs tops. I checked my wiring and it is flawless all the way to the fuse board. Anyone else had a similar LED problems with this brand? Guess it is not safe to assume that all LEDs are created equal.
