Nope. But it still doesn't justify the fact that they bumped up the price by 200-300%

Apparently they felt they were leaving money on the table. I can see companies raising prices because of transport costs, etc, but that just seems plain greedy.

Well before you say its BS about the price you should have bought some to know what your talking about. I purchased 3 20w 12000k lights that were $50 ea. and 2 30w 10000k that were $70 ea the 30's were with shipping months ago. I did extensive research on these to try and find the best prices. I suggest the lights you found for 20 to 30 dollars were at the 6500k range, not water proof and had a thin shell casing. I highly doubt you found 10000 and 12000k lights for that price, and if you did I'd like you to post the link to these great priced leds

Thank you!! I looked at them two weeks ago and saw them starting at 20$. Now they've tripped because they think they caught on to something. Typical of this hobby.

10W 20W 30W 50W LED Flood Light Wash Lamp Outdoor yellow red green blue 85-265v | eBay Here's that add if you notice as you increase the wattage the price goes up. Also those lights are not waterproof and the shell is the thin one rather then then thicker one. It also doesn't list the kelvin I'm pretty sure they would only be in the 6500 range trust me I think I looked at every seller in china to find the best prices.

It's $40 for a 20w one for any color. And it is water proof.
