    Default Water inside LED bulb....? Strange

    Working down the hill in the shed today...
    Have a small "yard light"....used to be on a day/night eye...mud dabbers kept covering the eye....so stays on all the time.

    Was surprised to see that is was still burning since last November....

    Was going in an out if the shed door...looked like the glass cover had water in it.....Cover looks like a Mason jar and hand down.
    Looked odd...as light was still on?

    Went up and unscrewed the cover...yup 1/2 of water.....
    Has been raining...but this was a little strange...bad seal on the glass?

    So dumped it out....LED bulb 2/4 full of water and still burning...

    Gee......I thought you had invented the next BIG thing. A light bulb that generates water. Think of all of the third world people that could have fresh drinking water............if only they had electricity.

    Yeah, Rick is right. Kinda like the blinker fluid in your car.

    Yep. I always get my blinker fluid checked when I get the floor mats de-magnetized.

    Hot dang! I was right! I am marking that on the calendar. These days don't come around very often. I'm forced to keep count.

    You can take the glass (or plastic) envelope off of those lights, and they still work. Some of the LED 'Chips" are to bright to look at directly.

    I removed the water on one of the sections and it just shows one block with the light glitch instead of the water path lit up. I tried the torch and it didn't fix it. I then filled the entire and removed it, along with replacing each block. Still isn't fixed.
