L70: Can we accurately predict L70?

L70: What causes some LED lights to reach L70 faster than others?

The major cause of LED fixtures losing light output faster than others is low-quality components. As with any engineered product, the manufacturer must make choices - and compromises - on the level of quality of materials and components to be used for the finished product in order hit the cost targets. This is no different when manufacturing LED fixtures.
