Is this the same as a low voltage landscape bulb?

Thanks for your help.

You should be able to get halogen replacements at a hardware store like Ace or at Home Depot...take a bad one with you to the store so you are sure to get the right one... Don't handle the new halogens with your bare fingers...skin oil will shorten their life... And they get very hot, too...

You can sometimes find them at Home Depot, etc. but they are ridiculously expensive. It's been a while since I got my replacement bulbs - I think they are 10 watt, but may be 5 (The wattage is embossed near the pins, but it takes a magnifying glass and good light to read it). I bought my unit new, and a bunch of bulbs went bad pretty much at the same time, so I did a google search and matched the bulbs by picture and wattage. They were cheaper to buy in groups of 10 so I bought 20 - probably a 5 year supply. I think a few people have bought arrays of lights like taillights with 20-30 bulbs, and pulled the bulbs use in their fixtures.

A lot of people say the xenon bulbs are less yellow - which seems to be true. They do cost a bit more though. Getting the ceiling light fixtures apart and back together is a fingernail buster. You have to pry out the inner ring that holds the lens. I resorted to a jeweler's screwdriver which works well.

PS. I'm got a table lamp with a fluorescent bulb which I like a lot for sewing & reading. One of these days when I'm feeling energetic, I'll probably replace the crap lights in the bathroom with fluorescent too. Not flattering but bright. If your makeup looks decent with fluorescent, it'll look fantastic in other light.

Enjoy your unit.
