Just wondering. How many hours use do you have on them? I understand there is a quality/ longevity difference in LEDs. That why I was hesitant to use them before. Some are short lived. My understanding of it is the ability of LED to dicipate heat determines how long it lives.

I've been using various versions of these "cheap" LEDs for about two years now in various vehicles. None of them that I drive a whole lot, but I've never had a problem with any of them over time. A couple of bulbs of the probably 50+ I've bought were bad out of the box, but they were promptly replaced or refunded.

Re: Dash Lights

Well the ebay bulbs you used say they have an average life span of 50,000 hours so they should be good. However I noticed they do not have the bayonette type base. The same company does offer the other type base on ebay.
