1.0 out of 5 stars Why am I replacing 2 out of 3 of these bulbs after one year?!, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AURAGLOW 6w LED GU10 Light Bulb, Warm White, 50w Equivalent (Kitchen & Home)
I simply do not believe the 35,000 hrs stated life for these bulbs. I have three of them and two have gone after 12 months, which even if I had left them on 24/7 (far from the being the case) that is less than 9000 hrs, one quarter of their stated life.

Now I might conclude I was unlucky and got a "bad batch", but having had big problems with short life on Auraglow bulbs of a different type (12V) and having had to return them, I am now quite skeptical about Auraglow bulbs, despite all these good reviews. I am guessing almost no reviewers come back to update their review when these bulbs get chucked in the bin. These bulbs should be working a minimum of 4 years even if burning power constantly.

If I have to replace them at cost of 30 quid every year we may as well all go back to halogen.

We have recently become aware of a faulty batch manufactured late in 2011.
The heat dispersion from the LED's was not functioning properly and therefore resulting in a short life span. This issue has now been resolved and the product in question has been greatly improved.

Please contact Auraglow directly to organise replacements under the 5 year warranty.

We deeply apologise for the inconvenience caused.
