Light burned out already

Hi, Tonight I took my bike out for a ride for the first time in a month (It was cold here in Minnesota) and the light did not come on when I turned the key. I can't think of what would cause the light to burn out in less than 5 months since I have had the bike. The brights worked so I was still able to ride. Has anyone else run into a bad light yet? Also any suggestions for switching to LED?

It's not unusual for a filament to fail or a bulb to fail and go all black. Most I've had lasted for years, one or two failed within a year.

They're easy to replace and you could take the opportunity to upgrade to a higher quality light (not LED though, there is no drop in replacement yet).

When you said the brights still worked, what are the brights?
