Most flip-dot EDS have a life cycle of approximately 100,000 hours, which by then a complete replacement is required. Advances in technology have since made LED-based signs cheaper, and the Volgren O405Gs had their original EDS replaced with Mobitec MobiDOTs which did not require the use of any moving parts.
