I think you had said it was a customers second vacation home last year? I had four links from previous years that should have been warranty but because of the split in the HBL I got left with nothing. Eight more links from 2009 have died over the winter months. I think you had better always plan on the lifespan of the LED LL's to be 2.5-3 years unless they improve them. I was hoping the new links would have sealed bulbs but I think it's just like before.
