LEDCentral.com.au CREE LED 2 Year Warranty
LEDCentral.com.au’s LED lighting which utilises CREE XLamp LED are covered by a 2 year manufacturer's warranty against defects on workmanship or materials used. The warranty service is limited to the replacement or repair of products utilising CREE XLamp LED Lamps that become defective under normal usage, as determined by LEDCentral.com.au. This warranty does not cover LED lights that have been abused, improperly used or disassembled including being installed in a fully enclosed lighting fixture (air tight) or used in association with standard electronic or iron core transformers. Except as stated above, no other express warranty applies. Any liability for indirect, incidental or consequential damages arising from the failure of the Lamp is excluded. For warranty claims on faulty globe (s), the claimer must provide proof of purchase information in the form of official invoice or funds transfer documentation with LEDCentral.com.au. The warranty claimer must return the faulty globe (s) directly to LEDCentral.com.au and is solely responsible for all postage costs associated with the warranty claim.
Please ensure all LED globes purchased through LEDCentral.com.au are not used in a fully enclosed fixture (air tight) - This not only voids our warranty but will dramatically reduce the life of the LED.
LEDCentral.com.au will process Warranty Returns, both refund and replacements within 14 days of receiving the original items back. COD for warranty returns back to LEDCentral.com.au will not be processed and all COD deliveries will be returned to sender.

LEDCentral.com.au LED Brightness (WATT - Lumen) & Lifespan
When comparing LED globes on LEDCentral.com.au or other external LED stores it is important to use the Lumen output rating as the measure of the LED rather than only its "WATT", as each LED globes use Cree Diodes, rated at certain input wattage, which can be reduced on the output due to heat dissipation.
Our 3x3watt and 5x3watt LED's, sometimes known in the industry as 9watt and 15watt LED globes, contain three or five units of CREE 3watt XLamp XR-E diodes. However due to insufficient heat dissipation in the LED housing configuration and not wanting to overload the units so we maximise the LED life, each of the diodes are tuned down with the lighting output being rated at approximately 5-6watts, measuring around 380 lumens (cool white) for the 3x3watt globes and 12watt measuring around 700 lumen for the 5x3watt downlight. The inner driver current range for our 3x3Watt LED is approx. 410-450mA and 700mA for our 5x3watt downlight. Anti Interference and dimming models of our 3x3watt and 5x3watt LED Globes can be slightly more reduced due to their configuration.
For our Manufacturers 3x3Watt Light Source Test Reports - Please download the below PDF's for full detail.
Similarly our 10Watt LED utilise Cree 10watt Cree XLamp MC-E diodes, however due to insufficient heat dissipation in their LED housing configuration, the output is reduced to enable long life - 500 Lumen (approx.) rated.
Please be aware that some of our LED lights are not designed to be a 1:1 replacement light for a 50W Halogen down light. Our 4watt and 3x3watt LED lights are fantastic LED globes but are more designed to replace 20watt to 40watt Halogens - Our 10watt and 5x3watt LED are designed to replace 50watt Halogen globes. As a business we will always endeavour to offer our customers the latest and brightest LED available.
Please be aware that the lumen output of all LEDCentral.com.au products is the output stated by the manufacturer, with the optimum driver in ideal conditions.
All LEDCentral.com.au Down lights use Cree LED components that are rated at approximately 50,000 hours lifespan as stated by the LED component manufacturer, Cree USA - www.cree.com. The maximum life of 50,000 hours is obtained primarily by optimal running conditions, including low temperature, good ventilation as well as using correct LED specific DC Constant Voltage Transformers in conjunction with the MR16 connection type blobes. LED Lifespan can be greatly reduced from 50,000 hours when not run in optimal conditions.
MR16 Compatible LED 12v Transformers
MR16 LED Light globes require DC constant voltage LED compatible 12v Transformers to run successfully. Please be aware your existing transformers may not work as desired with LED. Check our Transformers category to see our range of compatible transformers! Dimming may still not be compatible even when using recommended transformers, as it can depend on the dimming pot and combination. LEDCentral.com.au will not accept responsibility for consumers that purchase MR16 LED globes that are not compatible with their existing transformers, no refunds will be offered. Using 12v LED with standard halogen (Electonic) transformers will reduce the life of the LED from their expected working hours.
LEDCentral.com.au accepts no responsibility for electrical installations using any recommended LED transformers for sale through our store - Installation method and wiring is solely the responsibility of the Qualified Electrician installing the electrical device - This needs to be installed adhering to Australian Standards for Electrical Wiring which includes such things as junction boxes and correct insulated wiring must be used in association with LED transformer installation - Correct installation lies solely the responsibility of the Electrical professional installing the equipment - Please refer to the Qualified Electrical Installation - Limitation of Liabilty section of the terms and conditions.
LED Globe Manufacturing
LEDCentral.com.au works in association with its manufacturer of certified quality LED globes to provide the highest quality product available. Our manufacturer uses only the highest quality internal components within the final LED globe product output. CREE LED diodes are used as components of our manufactured LED globes but the globes themselves are not manufactured by CREE USA. Our manufacturer has licensing agreements with CREE USA to enable them to include the world class LED components in their quality LED globe build.
