Good question.  I asked them if any of their computer gear or appliances 
suffered a similar fate and they said, no, it was just the LEDs.

My guess is that the LED units are singularly intolerant of supply 
spikes.  On reflection, I should have asked them for a smoked unit and 
done some investigation--but at the time I was working on getting a 
large oak tree off my driveway so that I could get out. (You should have 
seen the 80' ponderosa pine that missed the house by about 6 inches.)

Priorities, you know.  I should have also asked about the brand used. 
There's some terrible cut-rate junk out there.
