Don't handle them with your bare fingers. Don't ask me why, but fingerprints will cause them to burn out.

I am replacing my halogens with LED's (C9WWThin 9 Led Chip Warm White from odmrv.com) as soon as I can figure our how to open the fixture. Seems to be hermetically sealed...

Of you're talking about the round puck lights in your ceiling...the inner-most ring (the one holding the lens) pops out of the fixture if you wedge a sharp knife edge or screw driver under the edge...be careful not to scratch the fixture or your ceiling...and do this when the halogen lights are off and cool...they get VERY hot when they are on. Be careful not to drop the lens when it pops out...sometimes they come loose from the ring. just remove the halogen bulb and replace it with the LED... The whole fixture is held in the hole in the aluminum by a spring set-up, but you don't need to remove the fixture to replace the bulbs... Hope this helps.

Here is a picture that shows where to pry to get the bulb out.

Also, how to get the lens back on. If you don't line it up correctly it won't go on and if you force it you will bend the little clips.

If it wasn't answered above they are 10 Watt bulbs. Got some replacements at Loews.

OK, I have replaced the halogens with the LED's after learning the pry-bar technique. The little wire holes are tricky to line up as well, and replacing the lens cover isn't without it challenges. So, overall, not exactly a user-friendly interface. But they do make a great replacement, at significantly less energy consumption.
