Asian LEDs

A word of caution with respect to cheap LEDs. I bought a large batch of white LEDs from Hong Kong. They are bright white and provide good lighting, but the leads are iron with a solder coating (they are magnetic). The advice about sealing with epoxy or similar is extra important with the iron leads. Many of my garden lights with similar LEDs have failed due to rust after one or two seasons.
