NOT Powder Coated, NOT Waterproof, NOT anti-corrosive... 2-YEAR WARRANTY?? I'll see if it gets honored
Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2018
**UPDATED** I contacted Amazon directly explaining my issue with the original pair of lights and the made good on the 2-year warranty and sent me a new pair to replace the first set that started failing after just a few months. I consider this good customer service and a deserving of an updated review that redeems my original review. I will hope the new set last longer than the first set. I am adding to my original 1 star rating to 4 stars. Thank you Amazon!
I've been meaning to write my review on this item order for quite a while now. In Sept I was shopping for lights to mount to the bull bar tabs on my front bumper on my 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. After much research and comparison over a few weeks, I decided to go with these lights. I really wanted that 'high light output' in the front, without having to mount a huge pair of round lights that generate heat. Seeing it was widely applied to Jeeps was a bonus.
I was initially attracted to the features listed below and impressive range of different applications
-(2) Off Road LED Spot Lights, 1260lm w/Mounting Brackets
-Priced Under $20
-Super bright view area to see clear at night –(Boat Lighting section)
-LED light can be widely applied to Jeeps –(Off Road Vehicle lighting section)
-Die-cast aluminum alloy cooling fins, allowing better heat dissipation, extending lifespan of lights over 30,000hrs
-IP67 rated powder coated, light is efficiently waterproof, dustproof & anticorrosive –(Boat Lighting section)
-Adjustable mounting brackets that can easily adjust, making it easier changing light direction.
- 2 YEAR WARRANTY
I was almost tempted to get 2 pairs
When the lights arrived, I wasn’t aware a power wire/switch kit wasn’t included with the lights, so had to order one, no big deal. Once I got everything wired, mounted & working, I was very happy with the amount of light output plus ease of bracket adjustment.
The following timeline is my experience with the lights during the following few months after I received the lights –
- Days (45-60) - Noticed all the mounting bracket hardware (nuts & bolts) starting to rust and look junky.
- Days (60-90) - Started noticing water droplets collecting on the inner sealed lens surface of both lights
- Days (180-200) - both lights showing significant signs of corrosion spreading on outer surfaces in multiple areas.
From the statement IP67 rating the Led light was safe to assume they would be waterproof, dustproof and anticorrosive, what was listed in the features. The pics attached to my review should justify my review, I can't where to contact the seller so I would like to request a warranty replacement, happy to send these back and change my review if the 2-year warranty statement is actually true
