Default Issues with Arcadia T5 lamps?

Hi folks,

This is a question for people who already have the lamps.

I have been speaking to a few people regarding these as i want to upgrade Helio's and Nimo's lights, but the people i have spoken to have said that, yes they are indeed great lights but they get VERY hot to the touch, so much so, one of the people i was speaking too now has a pretty nasty blister.

My local rep shop is having the same issue and will refuse to sell them to me (which is great of him as some shops would just want your cash)- is anybody else finding that they get very, very hot? if not, do you think this could be a bad batch?

My local are going to be getting a few more in to test before he decides whether to sell them or not.

Cheers
