      My bad, I got more like somewhere between 9,000 and 12,000 hours out of my bulb. Screwed up my calculation, needed to factor in days I didn't use it. Still a lot better than some others have reported.

    2. JadeL on

      For what it's worth, I probably got somewhere between 16,000 and 19,000 hours out of my original NanoLeaf bulb, whereas the expected life span was closer to 30,000 hours. So it didn't last quite as long as what was advertised, but that's not a bad amount of time for what was effectively a first generation prototype.

    3. JadeL on

      I have an original NanoLeaf bulb with the LEAF laser etched design, 12W, 1600 Lumen, 3500K, model NL 360 v1.4. It worked admirably for about 4 years, until it recently died. There were hundreds of days where I used it for upwards of 8 hours, and there were many nights where I had not switched it off until morning. So perhaps if I had been more mindful of it's use, it could have possibly lasted for at least another 4 years. Also, the PCB now has a soft green tint around the LED's, whereas it was white when it first arrived. Quite fitting, considering it's purpose. I will keep the bulb for posterity, and have decided to order one of the 3rd generation Nanoleaf One bulbs. (Not many of those remaining, it seems...) I'm not interested in the new modular "internet of things/smart device" direction of Nanoleaf, so I will keep using their classic style bulbs until they're no more, and I have to look elsewhere.

      Bulb died after bumping it while on by accident. Got really bright then died. oh well, Binned it.
      was a neat bulb and project.

      Might be a good addition to : http://ledprimer.com . Do you still sell these bulbs?

      Mine is still working with daily use.

      Just email their customer service. They are amazing and will replace your bulb!

      Same problem for me...suddenly the light is no longer working �
      What can I do?

      My Nanoleaf 10W Kickstarter edition died suddenly and unexpectedly. Not 25 to 30 years old (based on 3 h daily). RIP my young friend!

      (Or any ideas on how to revive it?)

      So I ordered the Nano Leaf a year ago and tonight it has stopped working. It is in an approved and standard lamp socket and has been tested on multiple lamps. I was wondering if this was supposed to happen and if there will be a fix? Can I possibly get a refund or a new product as I did not pay for a bulb that was supposed to last for multiple years but instead lasted one year and with limited activity. Please advise how this can be fixed as I am upset with my purchase.

      Hi NanoLeaf Team, just a quick question as I read below about a fellow backer from Germany. I too was affected by the fussy German customs issue. So far, I have still not received my initial NanoLeaf reward. Would it be possible to get the new model that you have just launched? Thanks, Robert

    15. Francisco Rodriguez on

      Just wondering is there a replacement for having my light bulb that died less than 2 years? My was the first batch.

      My bulb died too. I placed a ticket and received a new one within a few weeks!
      Mine was from the first batch and had some problems with the LED manufactering process. Do you see a black spot on one of the LEDs?

    17. Eric Stankiewicz on

      Well after about 10 months of very minor usage (1-2 hours daily) my bulb just up and died. That is nowhere near the estimated 25-30 year lifespan this project promised. Meanwhile my super cheap fluorescent bulbs in the lamp next to my desk haven't burned out in about two years. Pretty disappointed in this product.

    18. Martin Beierling on

      Hey guys. I want to say thank you. I've not gotten my original reward bulb, because of our german customs (wasn't the first time a kickstarter reward didn't make it through). After my request I was taken care of and now I have the latest CE certified bulb in my hands. This amount of post-campaign help/support is not usual and I thank you for this (e.g. I still haven't gotten my Pebble watch, because it did not go through the german customs).

      The bulb is plugged in, we love it. I hope you will have a lot of success with these bulbs, I already recommended them to my family.

      Greetings from Germany!

      I backed this project at Feb 2013 and the bulb supposed to be shipped at May 2013. I still got nothing from them. What is happening here?

      I no longer trust these guys, after waiting so very long to get my first bulb it had to be returned. No postage was paid for the return but a credit voucher for product was promised instead. That was over a year ago and no voucher has yet been sent. All it would take is an email but they are too busy asking money for a second generation bulb.

      I was an original backer. Unfortunately all 3 of the nano's I received worked only a short while or not at all. Maybe i had a few in a bad run of manufacturing. Disappointed but hopeful for this project to improve.

      Trying to figure out how and who to contact about a light that has failed. It has very few hour because it was shelved for awhile

      Hey there. I picked my lightbulbs up from the post office today, and I tested out the weakest bulb I got (1200 lumes) and I'm impressed. It's a great product. Thanks a lot for the fast response on my previous comment, and kudos on the excellent design!

      @TAG - no these can be on for hours and still only stay warm to the touch. It will never burn your hand. :)

      @Chris M: so sorry that you received a faulty bulb. But I believe we have already reached out to you and shipped out your replacement. We have since then fixed the issues surrounding the bulbs. Sorry for letting you down the first time around. As we mentioned to you before in our support ticket, we hope you will give us a second chance. :)

      Are these supposed to get warm? I put it in a floor lamp and after about 15 minutes or so it was warm. I took it off as I decided it was too bright for that particular spot, but I am concerned about its warmth, and if it will continue to increase in temperature.

      Dead after 5 months....i'll even give you 6 months. It sure doesn't last decades. What a JOKE! if this wasn't a big claim on long life i wouldn't harp on it. But it is!

      it's a very efficient bulb as it consumes 0 watts of power. I will give you that one!

      your new line should also be - great at producing ewaste. bunch of hacks. it's LEDs on a circuit board. Seriously how complex of a design is this to not even last 1 year!!!!

      Hi guys
      Just a note to let you know I love my Nanoleaf bulb. Perfect for reading in my bedroom and is such an improvement over my last energy saving bulb. A bit pricey but worth every penny.

      Am also interested in your new dimmable bulb.
      Am currently out of the country, so please reserve one for me and let me know the cost.
      Regards
      Carol

      Received my replacement blub a few days ago. Thanks for the quick service.

      I also thought you'd like to know. Yesterday, all our lights (incandescent, CFL's, Florescent tubes) started flickering. But NOT our NanoLight (NanoLeaf) bulbs. They stayed strong, without any evidence of flickering. Loved it!

      Thought we were having a rare brown out ... until the power went out completely. Transformer in the area blew up. Luckily power was back on in 2 hours. No big deal.

      Thanks, NanoLeaf!

      Its been a while since I last responded the survey(2013/06/27), but wait, what happened to my NonoLight? I can't believe I can not get it up to this point. Can I still get it right? lol

      Any plans for the bayonet style yet? None of the lights in my house have screw fittings.

      Just a quick note for anybody else waiting for their bulb. I backed at the $45/September 2013 level. After chasing the NanoLeaf team after update #17 as requested in said update, they told me on the 21st April 2014 "your order was left out of the shipping queue due to a system glitch" and it'll be sent out "right away". I never got a shipping notification email, however the bulb has just arrived (2nd May 2014) in the UK! Hurrah! They do exist, they are shipping them out, just hang in there! Looking forward to fitting it later (I was waiting for the shipping notification before buying a bayonet to screw adapter).

      @Adam M. Carner: Thx for filling out the survey, we've exported the info and shipped out your bulb. We'll email you the tracking number once it becomes available. :)
