Bright light, but doesn't last that long – T10 1W 12V White Light Car Turning Signal Light Bulb (2-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Yes, the brightness from this bulbs are as bright as advertised. I've tried some other LEDs (not from DealExtreme), and they are not as bright as this.
+ Bright light
+ Cool white
+ Cheap!
Cons:
I've bought 8 LEDs in total, 2 of them do not longer work (after a month or so) and 1 is flickering. I use them as parking bulbs in my car, so it could be due to the variation in the voltage.
- Build quality could be better: The soldering on the pins are easily destroyed if bent (sometimes necessary to make contact in the socket)
- One of my 8 LEDs are flickering
Other:
Mind that the beam is consentrated in a forward beam and not spread. This could be both an advantage or a disadvantage, whatever your use would be.
Remember they are polar sensitive (as all LEDs), so you might turn them around in the socket to make them work the first time.
Bottomline:
They are cheap, they are bright and the white color is very white – but you should be prepared that they don't last that long.
But to this price, you should buy some spares to swap the faulty ones.
