How exactly does any light source, let alone LEDs, produce no heat?
the base itself i think is the heat sink, but i'm no engineer...but even on the lux site it states to allow the bulb bases/heat sinks to cool before handling as they are hot after use....
that being said I've had my lux v3 kit since they were first out, a little over 18 months or so...I checked periodically for melting/component wear and tear and haven't noticed any....I've read of other LED AE kits that haven't been as fortunate and have had instances of component melting...
i do remember a thread regarding bulb temp between led v hid, v halogen that measured and compared temps for each type of bulb..in fact it might have been eas or alpine that did the comparison...hmmm...IIRC led's did run the "coolest" of the 3 but still did produce heat...
