Here is my 3rd failed LED bulb.It lasted shorter than CFLs which were replaced last year after hard working of 7 years(2011-2018).It stopped working and I will buy all new bulbs even if they work for lamp in dining room 'cause I get sick to go every month and buy new bulb.

Seems, that V-Tac is not so quality brand. In Finland, many V-Tac product has been removed from the market, because they have some lack of security. Tukes is a Finnish product security authority. http://marek.tukes.fi/Hakutulos.aspx?paaryhmaId=14&otsikko=Valaisimet%20ja%20valaisintarvikkeet

I will buy in future Weiss LED,Tungsram & Philips LEDs.Which problems V TAC had in Finland ? V TAC bulbs have cheap PSU with electrolytic condenser(capacitor,i like old school names)without transformer.Alpha Star bulbs have transformer with condensers which smooths light and removes flicker but LEDs are bad.

Here is some problems:
- the chassis grounding is not reliable http://marek.tukes.fi/Tuote.aspx?nettijulkaisuId=9267
- a floodlight has a IP20 plug, even a fixture itself is IP44 rated http://marek.tukes.fi/Tuote.aspx?nettijulkaisuId=9267
- the output of the power supply is not really double insulated http://marek.tukes.fi/Tuote.aspx?nettijulkaisuId=9196
- not pass IP-rating test http://marek.tukes.fi/Tuote.aspx?nettijulkaisuId=8951
- the cable shell breaks in frost http://marek.tukes.fi/Tuote.aspx?nettijulkaisuId=8939
- This is the best one: http://marek.tukes.fi/Tuote.aspx?nettijulkaisuId=3301 (See all photos by click a pink arrow) Its power cord has a double insulated plug even the socket on the other end is grounded model.

Thanks for reply.I tried to translate but it said text is huge to translate.Cable on this reflector looks tiny and brittle.Generally if lamp is IP 44 than cable must be IP44.Ground is very important.Glad to see that someone cares about consumers.

In Finland, we are sometimes very accurate. A device approved in another country may not be eligible here.
