I've got them on my high beams and no trouble, but I don't use them much. What's the problem?

I have never had a problem but I have heard some people have problems with flickering. If this is the case you may have to add a relay wire harness that draws power right from the battery. Here is a link to one. eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I've never heard of anyone having an issue with them, what's your issue? what wattage are yours?

I know several people who have Xentec kits and none of them have had any problems. I would contact the person you bought them from and see if they will send you a replacement set. Good luck
