    Default LED COB Light Chips

    I'm looking for these to replace the ones on my floodlights. Seem like hens teeth, looking for 50W ones, they're about 40mmx40mm, and local here in Cape Town. Anyone know of a supplier. Thanks. Z

    My go-to place is AC-DC in Paarden Eiland. They've just moved premises to the top of Section St, where 4x4 Megaworld used to be. If they haven't got them, they will know where to go - Noel at the help counter is very knowledgeable.

    Bought and paid online, went and collected because I was in the area, fitted the items and now the light is working 100% R75 per light. Better than R600ish to replace the whole thing. Was a doddle to replace.

    I bought some cheap spotlights online a few years ago. They only last a few months and then start to flicker, before they die.

    I kept the broken ones. Maybe they can be repaired after all.
