RE: Ebay LEDs - inconsistent color and brightness (and smoke!)

Thanks for the replies. Voltage measured at the outlet is 13.4v (charging) and 12.6v. I sent the seller an email and some pictures - not expecting much but curious about his response.

Ebay LEDs - inconsistent color and brightness (and smoke!)

Grabbed some cheap LEDs off ebay and finally got around to installing them. They looked fantastic for about 58 seconds and then things started to go downhill fast! The color and brightness start off excellent. Perhaps just slightly dimmer than the original incandescent bulbs but the color was nice and warm. About a minute after being on, I notice the color starting to look cooler and they appeared to be dimmer too. 5 minutes later and it looks like a completely different light! Very dim and an awful blue hue. And then - they got so hot that they literally started smoking. I put together a few time lapses which span about 7 minutes or so. Camera is a DSLR locked at f/2.8, 1/30, and ISO 400 for every exposure. http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae147/bps34/Web/spots.gif http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae147/bps34/Web/overhead.gif Smoke! These are supposed to run cooler! http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae147/bps34/Web/fire.jpg height=400 width=600 What's going on here? Is this typical of the ebay LEDs? Anyone else notice the color/brightness shifts? These are the LEDs
