6X Phillips USA F40T12 floros in my boiler room / crawl space all pre date my ownership of the house but they don't get the hours as I don't go down there unless I NEED to

I remember two early design led battens (20w) which was bought by some owner (installed outdoors), who left it when they moved out, and then another owner who while renovating, decided to keep them since it was led. The next owner threw them out but I picked them and have been using one for 4+ years (upgrade from my 10w led batten). No dead led chip inside it at all!
Meanwhile my neighbour had a high quality led batten (40w) which was installed indoors in may 2022 and failed (no signs of life) in jun 2023.
For clarity, the battens were made around 2009 to 2011. The outside climate is very rainy, so I am wondering how they survived without any sealant.

Also, I have a extention board which was made in the 80s (used extensively and thrown out by original owner) whose neon indicator is still brighter than the led on my new powerstrip.
I have given it away now.
