Sounds good. Good luck Dana, hit me up if there is anything I can do!
Just curious, did you check the voltage of the lamps? Damar makes a 5.5 Volt 25W Par36 as well as a 12V version. 11.5V through a 5.5V lamp would have adverse affects.
Yes, they were stamped 12 volt on the box and the lamp. Maybe they were wrong though.
Nothing wrong with Sylvania capsylite PAR's . Unique used to use them. They had some problems with water intrusion a few yrs back but seemed to have solved it now. It's safe to go back to the sylvania PAR's.
The problem is that they are cheap chinese manufactured junk bulbs just like everything else the Dabmar name is on.
Not me! Par, MR, Wedge or whatever: once the manufacturer has proved themselves to be inferior, it takes a whole lot more than a casual recommendation to get me back. This includes lighting manufacturers!
Pete, I would agree with you on some of the more reputible manufacturers fixing their bulbs. Most would recognize a problem and fix it so they don't lose business. I don't know about Chicom companies however. I don't think I would buy a cheap Chicom bulb anyway.
What does Chicom mean?
Chinese Communist I believe.
I don't think it is meant as a term of endearment!
