That's a valid concern, I've tested it running for 10mins continuous.. no issue so far.. the tail light housing is pretty big, so heat should not be a problem. In any case, brake lights are not on continously, only intermittently. If you increase the tail light power to 21W I would be concerned because the tail lights are always on once you turn on your lights, but in this case unless the brake light is active, the tail light is still 5W only which is within design spec.. time will tell
