This is my first post here.
My wife uses a makeup mirror which has 10 x BA9s in series. Each lamp is 3W 24V and since we are in Europe they run on AC 230V nominally (reading off a multimeter is sometimes 243V and even 248V).
A few months ago one of the original bulbs burnt out and the only local replacement I found were 24V 4W BA9S. Now every 4-5 weeks the 4W bulb burns out. I have marked the replaced bulb and it is always the one which burns out.
I thought of replacing all ten incandescent lamps with 24V LEDs from aliexpress. The ones I found are 2W and are meant to be used in vehicles.
My question is, would directly replacing the incandescent bulbs with LEDs lead to a worse situation if one of the SMD LEDs burns out? Can I add some sort of resistor to the 4W incandescent so that the bulb voltage is somehow limited when the makeup mirror is switched on?
Thank you for any help.
