Warm white lenses and discoloring


Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have issues with the lenses on warm white LEDs discoloring? Mine that are more than a year old are almost yellow to the point where I can't put them on the house. These are M5 sizes. I really don't want to go to cool white. If there is a particular brand that you have had a lot of success with (maybe putting warm white lights on the roof for a few season with little discoloration), please let me know.

Well, looks like you are in Florida, which gets a lot of sun. Unfortunately, sun and plastic don't mix well. So if your lights are out in the direct sun, they are going to discolor faster than if they were not. UV rays eat plastic!

Just seems to be the warm white...everything else holds up really well.
