        I love your videos keep up the good work

    2. Kam500

      BTW light bulb company's have a max time they make the bulbs last so the break/burnout so they get more money. Ther is a firestation that has a light that has bend on for years ther is a video I watched a while back and I can rember much about it. the light bulb i was talking about is Centennial Light

    3. Johnny Nimble

      Did they modify STEM to shoehorn art in?

      have you seen the Philips Dubai only led lights? they know how to make good lights but don't as they need people to need to buy replacements to keep up their profits

    7. TODOR Brassmonger Wenkov

      That's product makers say save Earth without think where all this junk will go.

    8. FenixFyrehart

      I have a 3 LED bulb set that costs ₹100 but all of them are good quality. Sometimes prices don't represent quality.

      Welcome to the stupid lightbulb conspiracy... basically, the people that made light bulbs wanted to increase profit, so they made them last shorter.

    15. David Hugill

      If the LED's cost $$'s and the old-fashioned incandescents cost c's, doesn't that say something about the cost & environmental impact (and carbon intensity) of LED's? I resent having the choice taken away from me. I *have* replaced my high duty cycle lights with LEDs (and taken several back for replacement after disappointingly quick failure) but for others, replacing one infrequently used incandescent with another (while I still have stash of contraband) is more economical, whichever way you look at it.

    22. Radosław Orłowski

      Warranty means you can replace 2$ light bulb for free, you just need to pay 15$ for shipping. And they will send it back on your cost, saying it's user damage. I know, I have a lamp that burned one per month. I asked for warranty replacement after 3 packs did not last 1 season.

    23. Gar Suitor

      You *could* just blame it on the Chinesium…. But, a great many of the ‘GOOD’ LED bulbs also come from China. So, it would seem that the problem is related to building items to a price. They are built to sell for a certain price, and everyone in the chain from digging the materials out of the ground, to ringing the cash register has to make a profit. To get lamps that sell for a dollar, you must cut every corner that science enables you to cut. The result is, lamps in which the devices are driven too hard, and therefore, too hot. Heat will destroy the weakest component in the mix. In the failed lamps that I have examined, that is usually one of the LEDs. I’ve never seen a current regulator fail. The current is usually set by a pair of resistors in parallel. If you clip one of them off (The smallest resistance value) you will greatly reduce the current used, without a tremendous difference in light output, and will extend the life of even the ‘cheapies’ by a large amount. This, of course, is something that should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing. Over-driven LEDs, and inadequate heat sinking is the cause for the failure of the cheapies.

      I understood everything except 'how does the water get inside those bulbs'🙄

    32. TheAgentDeus

      Actually funny thing is that no-brand aliexpress LED's are working still (over 7 years) and Osrams died in one year. Real long-lasting ones are actually available only in Arabs

    33. R373N

      I still use an LED bulb I bought in 2013 for $10 CAD for a single bulb and half of the bulb shape is the driver.

    34. Brendan

      STEAM? Why..

    35. Jack mill

      There is a light that last forever its in a fire station but the big LED company's use low quality things so they go out faster and make you spend your money on their light company its all a scam you could probably make one

      1. Jack mill

        Well all light Company's

    36. FashionKiler

      i cannot express how much i adore and wish the best for ElectroBOOM, jesus

    37. XGamer_2.0

      Oh btw my whole family uses incandescent bulbs but all my lights are RGB led strips or led bulbs and I have a RGB remote controllable led bulb

    38. juoig7799

      THE NUMBER OF TIMES YOU ARE GETTING ELECTRIC SHOCK , ONE DAY YOU ARE GOING TO BE SHOCK RESISTANT.😀😀😀😀😁😁😁😁😂😂😂😂😂

    41. DVGSIBLNTHE

      The reason why will shock you and they know how to make them last but they dont last because if they did last they will be breaking a thing similar to a contract that is over 100 years old and that Phillips learned a very long time ago that if the lights last for long they lose money because people will buy and eventually they wont need them anymore and stop buying as much so they lose money. Well the contract was really a cartel in the 1930s but still keep making them so they don't last. But the cartel eventually fell apart so yeah they do it for the money.

    42. Gulshan Prashar

      You should not use kits because they make your children dumb by making them joining the pieces but not making the pieces

    50. TheRealSkele

      Some of the "manufacturers" use rebranding when they buy cheap LEDs from Ali put them in a package (which is probably also from Ali) and sell them at a, in worst cases, 10 times value. They get through with it by giving the warranty. I noticed this when I worked as a supplier. Most of the items I found in stores were from Ali.

    60. Richard Lighthouse

      Time to harvest those broken led strips and make a god light bulb that doesn't die because each led strip is slightly underpowered.

    61. Bicycle workshop

      I was able to significantly prolong the cheap LED bulb life by relapsing it's LED by more durable/quality ones. New LEDs can handle more current -> operates not in max current -> lives a lot longer. Resoldering process is very easy when you use a "LED Lamp Remover Station Heating Plate" from aliexpress: 4$ :) Some of my LED bulbs are operational for about 5 years (indoor everyday use on a kitchen ~3/hours a day)

    62. the walrus U.S

      for thoes outdoor ones how hard can it be to install a rubber gasket like why

    63. Gert Kriel

      I thought those led lights were for looks because they look cool i love if they have a bunch of yellow lines inside it looks cool

    64. Jero maruzzo

      I saw a monkey on the tree. Struggling and getting mad because he can't press... SEE MORE...

    65. Jero maruzzo

      The problem is on the ground.

    66. Kokainarienv0gel

      im still sticking to CFL lights.... much better when it comes to lifetime. Some i use are already 12 years and older and have easily 10k+ hours on it. Meanwhile even expensive LEDs failed after 1-2 years easily.

      Your are very energetic man so your experiment are good but after experiment used safety gloves 🧤 and wood and ruber shoes

    76. BoGy

      to get warranty ALWAYS make a copy of your cash-register-ticket (proof of purchase) and put that in the BOX of your leds, so you'll always have it near you when you might need it. then contact the seller about the issue, he'll ask you for that ticket or invoice. In europe only 2 obligatory first years are for the reseller, all longer warranty you'll need to contact the manufacturer's helpdesk. (i guess in US there is the mandatory 90days warranty (damn, that's only 3 months... sooo litlle) where you can go to the reseller/vendor, later on you have to contact the manufacturer.)

      They cant make a 10year warranty on a 30$ bulb

    82. Gone 004

      Just remove the stupid glass and make a hull water and finger proof with some air flow or a heatsink. For most indoor applications you don't need much protection, a stainless steel mesh wrapped around and connected to ground should make it safe. Also it's way more efficient in a low voltage direct current system like a car. If I made a house electrical system, I'd probably run a 12 volts DC system for the lights, power it with some 12V batteries connected to a wind turbine on the roof. Free light. You could get parts for cheap, just use a car alternator.

    83. life1 system

      🙄 bad LED is more pollution of the environment. in Industry and in rubbish.

      Why do I laugh so hard when you get zapped?

    85. kiddhkane

      Damn. And here I thought I'm stupid and I can't use a lightbulb properly. Turns out that the warrany means nothing. Thank you for opening my eyes.

    86. henrey

      In case anyone is curious. The reason most lights stop working after a short amount of time is because they're supposed to. Their lifespans are kept artificially short so that you buy more in the future; because even very early commercially available light bulbs had incredibly long life-spans. This is demonstrated as the longest continuously running light is a lightbulb currently at a fire station that has been running since 1901. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light

    87. Manash Saha

      I don't understand how on earth water gets into your light bulbs Do you use your light bulbs under water I mean that would be weird for others but I don't know your case.

    88. Dr. J. A. LAGHARI

      They purposely make them obsolete in a short time so they won't go out of business. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoebus_cartel

    93. i2eye

      Google up, Phoebus cartel

    94. A person who never keeps mouth shut

      It dies because of overheating as there is no heatsink connected to LEDs Here's tip:collect working leds and connect all of em in parallel and connect it with boost converter so that you can use it with 12v battery where electricity is unavailable

    95. Ryan Steele

      LED's are meant to last a lot longer then 10k hours. Its a deliberate design flaw to keep making money off you. Where is the profit to make an LED last as long as its supposed to, you're whole life, and never need another bulb again.
