As per Erin, I had the same issue last year with my 1nm lights, and they sent me a new set of 2nm lights within a week, without any querying .

Just out of interest for those wanting better value for money. I bought my lights from Australian Ebay. 3 years ago they cost 45 delivered and they're not far off that today either. There are cheaper ones on ebay now but the ones I bought were these ones: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/12V-LED-NAVIG...item3f03c6f29a

I'm very happy with them and look rather cool with the stainless finish too.

I have the same ones as Hightower thought I think I paid a little less than 45 for the pair about 2.5 years ago. The all round white I have from NASA marine cost about 50 and 2.5 years later only a third of the LED's work.

NASA are pretty good, I would suggest contacting them.

Some yachty people over on YBW have had issues with the NASA ones although they think it may be battery chargers that are killing them? I think to be fair it isn't a huge number and some people are defending them!
