Landscape light - halogen to led


I have a Malibu Lighting CL1 50W Low Voltage Landscape light. It uses
JC Type / GY6.35 (2-Pin) / 12 Volt / 50 Watt bulbs. Is there any LED bulbs I can use?

I'm sure there are many available, I just did a quick Google search and found these: https://www.amazon.com/Ukey-Dimmable...n%3A6104098011

That was easy. I guess I was checking if there were any issues others had when converting. Seems to be similar to a light bulb conversion. The bulb will be in freezing conditions but maybe that doesn't affect bulbs much.

A bit expensive for a bulb so might just stick with halogen.

LED technology has come a long way, and the pricing has come down, too. $28 for 6 bulbs isn't that bad, considering they will probably outlive your stay in the house. Freezing won't harm the LED's.

Really not that expensive when you consider how much it will save you an electrical costs. They use 1/10 of the electricity your present bulbs do. Figure out how many hours per day you have these lights turned on and I'm betting that the LED bulbs will pay for themselves very quickly!

Re: Landscape light - halogen to led


Besides the electricity savings, you also have to factor in how much longer those LED's will last vs Halogen.

How many people stock bulbs for when they go out?

I don't....not now. I do have a few left over CFL's from my garage for when I converted my cans to LED's (long story). I use the old CFL's in my neighbor's house when his incandescent bulbs go out.
