There are lights mounted on the seat wall that goes around my paver patio. I need to replace some of them. The bulbs are either 10W or 5W T3.5 Xenon wedge base LED lamps. I'm having trouble finding replacements. The closest I can find are at Lowes, but the lowest wattage is 18W. I think that might be too much. Also, what does the T3.5 mean? Is Xenon a brand name or a type of bulb?
Any help in finding the correct replacements will be appreciated.

Guessing a bit based on usual standards....
T usually means tubular ---is that the shape of your lamp(s) ?
The number, in this case 3.5, usually indicates diameter in 1/8's of an
inch, therefore this would be 7/16" dia - is that what you have?
Xenon is a noble gas. Xenon lamps are similar to incandescent except
for the internal gas.
I've successfully replaced xenon lamps with led lamps of same form.
In my case, they were not T3.5's.

Xenon is the gas that fills the lamp not a brand.

Those sound like 12v landscape lights.
In a big box, I’d look in the landscape light section. The bulbs are often there with the lights (not on the bulb aisle).

A lot of the better hardware store would have them.

Also available on line.

Found them after checking again at Lowes, so I bought some extra. Now I'm having trouble getting some of the lights to work, so I'm going to start a separate thread.
