Thus, all of their testing has occurred under their own elements (sockets, shrouds, etc) and they will not warranty any modifications.
I am not familiar with this specific product offering. As you describe it, it is essentially being offered as an integrated LED fixture. When I was talking about changing and upgrading sockets, I was talking about traditional fixtures that use lamps.
Have a great day.
