Philips LED light chokes keep failing
The lights are under warranty but defunct because of the choke. Unfortunately the whole Philips lighting website is designed in such a way that the consumer cant raise a complaint for getting issues fixed.
Also, highlights need for standards for websites of all consumer companies that have an aftersales component such that a common consumer can easily file a complaint. more
Probably you are referring to LED decorative lights and the choke is meant for that. Please note that these chokes are totally electronic (do not include a transformer), hence are voltage sensitive and do not support a large voltage fluctuation. If you live in a area which has voltage fluctuations then it is the cause of failure of the chokes.
In your particular case (from the pic you have shared) this choke only supports a voltage supply range of 220-240 volts which is very narrow. In India we get a power supply in the range of 180 - 260 volts. So unless you are using an inverter / UPS with a steady supply then you are going to face this problem continuously. You will either have to change the lighting (non choke based) or provide inverter / UPS supply to the lighting. more
Tube-light technology is now outdated. Better too throw away the associated fixture and replace it with a fixture that can hold a LED bulb. more
