I think PWM might be very common (hence many modern vehicle lights appearing to flash on camera footage?). I hadn’t ever thought about this, but could the use of PWM indicate that one set of LEDs would be operating dimmed as tail lights and full brightness (or greater brightness) when brakes are applied. Which begs the question of why only the tail light function is absent? Dunno...
Well that’s progress then ......grrrrrr. What was wrong with a £1.50 bulb every so often....?
As for house lights (Ahem, lamps sorry....), the life expectancy of LED / energy efficient ones has to be the most exaggerated claim heard in years. They go nearly as often, and take down the trip every time....! AA
LED bulbs tripping out the consumer unit circuit? I’ve not heard of that before. Halogens yes. And the only LED domestic bulb I’ve had blow to date is one of those fancy decorative ones that mimic old fashioned filament jobs. I’ve even dropped LED work lamps from about waist height and knocked them off the workbench - they just kept on working.
But incorporating non user maintainable light units on a bike? I think Honda have lunatics running the asylum.
