A couple things to keep in mind with any light set.
Those using halogen, and the like,lights burn very hot. Finger oils are very detrimental to these lights and they have a high chance to burn out and shatter. Suggestions have been to use a clean cloth or gloves to install/replace these lights.
another thing to keep in mind is that most anylight, that uses a filament,is very fragile when they are hot. The recomendation here is to turn them off and allow to cool down before you move them or pack them. This also reduces the chance of setting a hot light near something that could melt on them further ruining them.
