    This may sound stupid but I gotta ask.
    Do flashes have a life expectancy?

    how Long does your average off camera flash last?

    they do but it's not very accurate. I have flashes that are over 20years old that still work. Actually I don't think I've ever had a flash go bad on me (pure luck I'm sure) But my grandmother was a pro and I know her flashes have seen way beyond there life! And I still use them today. but no question is stupid! Better to ask then to not know at all.

    I think that over time, the color temp may shift...and the plastic parts may tend to turn yellowish.
