ALDI LED lights - Pathertic
I was using ALDI lights over last few years and it seems I have bought whenever they came in ALDI. Lately I have paid attention and found - Non ALDI bulbs (different brands than ALDI selling) they are in the house over 5+ years now and ALDI branded/sold by ALDI were actually got replaced in few months time. Yes this just bulbs and didn't pay attention. In last 9 months 12 led (GU10) were blown all ptehr E27 and B22 were blown and then looked into my inventory ..... and in last 3 years almost 25 (E27 & B22) Bulbs + 12 LED (GU 10)I have bought. ...Shocking..... :( Different brands are still working. Problems of ALDI Light: Strobe, dimmed, flickering, not working, intermittently working. Initially I thought it could be my electrical wiring - checked with qualified electricians - no fault at all. And it is obvious - because other non ALDI lights are working normal. Very bad product - specially LIGHTWAY Sent 4 emails with all details - no response
It started fibrillating
It was a 13w job and started flicking on and off one night like astrobe light. Turned it off because I was certain it was going to explode. Seemed alright the next day but after 15 minutes it started doing the same thing. Then I decided to look it up. Can only 100% agree with everyone here - it is junk and only a few months old.

ALDI LED globes are exploding BEWARE
As you can see from other posts these globes can have problems. I had one explode, shower sparks all over the lounge room and damage the light fitting. I have been waiting since May 15 for someone to acknowledge the damage and repair my lounge room light fitting. Further, 2 more failed straight away and tripped the master fuse.
Looked good in the Aldi Bargain Bin but what a mistake.
I bought about 20 of the 7W dimmable GU10 led bulbs about 2 years ago. Around 8 have failed since with led blinking and then dying altogether. The led may be OK but I suspect the led driver is no good. I still have the receipt so will see if Aldi take them back. Absolute rubbish. Avoid Muller-Licht at all costs.
Not worth it
Like every other review, except for the 1 suspiciously positive 1, some failed within a few weeks, some lasted a few months, some lasted about a year, and a few lasted about 2 years ( i bought about 20 and only a few lasted more than the year). In my opinion spend the extra money on a better branded light. These are cheap, but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
LED globe supposed to last up to 25 years fails in 2 years
I bought a Muller Licht LED light bulb from ALDI a few years ago. It lasted at most 2 years and wasn’t used much. I didn’t keep the receipt, but took it back to Aldi Waterloo thinking that only Aldi sells it and LEDs have only been around for five years, and they would offer a refund.
Also I thought they would like to know how one of their products was failing, not living up to the claim on the box of lasting up to 25 years. But no refund from the manager. The same thing happened with a Median brand LED globe also sold by Aldi.
Aldi are completely uninterested as to whether the items they import from China perform as specified or not. So producers of items sold at Aldi can palm off any old rubbish to the Australian consumer.
Not very good
I purchased 3 of these GU10 LED bulbs mid way through last year from Aldi. $6.00 each from memory when they were on sale. I didn't retain the docket. 2 with 6 LEDs 7 watts & 1 with 4 LEDS 5 watts. The first 7 watter has just failed. It works OK when switching on but as soon as it warms up it begins to turn itself on and off. Obviously poor circuitry. The longevity claims are laughable. The LEDs may last a long time but if the electronics that drive them are poor they will never reach the end of the LEDs life. I've replaced it with the original Halogen bulb which at 42 watts uses 6 times as much energy but it is 6 years old & still working.
I purchased these Muller Licht LED light bulbs from ALDI Stores Pty Ltd when they came on sale, hoping to save money on my electricity bill and help the environment at the same time. They cost $10 each. Sadly I am disappointed with them. The packaging said that they would last up to 25 years, Well, They didn't even last 25 months..They all failed within a few weeks of each other, all were dead within 8 months. Just went out... ALDI. stores couldn't care less, and said there was no warranty on them
Because they failed after 60 days they weren'...
