Beamtech LED bulbs - reliability?

I've installed 4 pairs of Beamtech 2007 bulbs in our Fords. One has begun to flicker. Of the negative comments on Amazon, many mention flickering.

Amazon is out of stock on the 9007 Beamtech, so I can't order another pair right now. I'm trying a pair of Lasfit 9007 LED bulbs on the recommendation of horsecop . I'll keep y'all posted on reliability.

Have any of the rest of you had failures with Beamtech LED bulbs? Only the fan-less model fits in Fords due to that big ring that holds the bulb in the lamp. Heat buildup might be an issue...

We're having cold weather here in TX. Probably not as cold as y'all in the midwest, but cold to us. I drove the truck that was flickering for an hour last night, no flickering seen.

I'd bet that it's heat related. Big old 7.3, tuned, with big fuel etc, generates some heat under the hood.

I installed a pair of the 9008 bulbs in my truck last week and all has been good, but then that should be expected considering the little time that they have been on.

This was the second vehicle I tried them in, about 3 weeks ago now. The first was my daughter's CVPI but there's a lot less heat there than from a 7.3 psd. Hers are not flickering so far, about a month now.

I guess we'll see over time. I did promise the guys here that I'd report on reliability. The price is quite low and the really thin design of the Beamtech makes for good light output on the road.

From what I have been seeing on this forum, everyone seems to be very happy with the beamtechs. As bad as the headlights are on these trucks, I am going to have to aquire myself a set before too long.
