To late for me on the old Bird 82 I have already changed all out to Led.
Guys--you'll love the led's great light output LESS current draw, a WIN WIN in my book.
Will need some for the NEW? 84
Thanks for locating lights Stephen.

I'm interested and yes, warm white as opposed to surgical white.
This opinion or advice is worth what you paid for it

I'm interested. Please show us a picture of how it will differ with our current lights. I've got 25 of those things aboard.

Default LED's

I'm on my 3rd different set of LED replacements for the halogen puck lights. The first 2 sets didn't last 6 months and some of the LED's in each puck started dying. The guy I got them from swears these new ones are much better but too soon to tell. All replaced at no charge so far.

Originally I spent $200 for 7 puck lights and replacement strips for 2 Thinlites. Those lasted about 6 months as well and started failing from the end of the strips. Still waiting for replacements on those

I can certainly say that the quality of these things is all over them map.

IMHO, I wouldn't invest again for a year or two. I am not convinced thay have the bugs out of these interior LEDs yet. However, if someone finds some that last for a couple of years, put a post on then and I'd be interested again.

to answer Ron's request
I wont be able to post any pictures till the samples are in hand

to address Lee's concerns
the one thing had led lamps do not like is heat or excessive voltage
We produce a 24 volt light for Honda, yes the car company that is off 80 percent of the time and on twenty percent any more than that and the light self destructs.
the lamp has to be heatsinked
if the lamp does not meet my expectations and criteria it wont be used or sold by Dupree Products
If the lamp is built on a simple pcb even if it open to the air that is not good enough, IT must be heatsinked
Iam not selling $200 puck lights. I am selling a 8.00 or less replacement Light that emits no UV like halogen does. low or no heat unlike halogen which burns real good sort of like a cattle brand
In two years the technology will have changed completely I will not guarantee a light bulb for that long.
the lights you have problem with what voltage are they regulated at
a straight 12 volts is not sufficient they have to able to operate within the range of 11and 18 volts dc minimum
if the tolerances are any tighter low they will not light high leads to an early death
As far as the Thinlites go we will probably never produce a led light to fit this product. they are an adequate light with a proper ballast
The old T-8 inch we are actively pursuing this project and hope to have a
suitable replacement by the summer

I hope this addressed your concerns
Have a Great Day
