xenon light bars - 12V vs. 120V

WendyBJanuary 30, 2009

can anyone explain the advantage (assuming there is one) for low-voltage lights?

Also, very confused about how many lights per bar/foot. Some manufacturers have 3 in 18" some are 2 in 18", ditto 24" - 3 or 4. Are there issues I should know in deciding? Makes it hard to compare prices too!

I think I answered my own question. Never assume!

low-voltage has a bulky transformer to deal with. No upside.

well, maybe a little upside to 12v. low-voltage are usually a bit brighter according to salesperson at lighting store I just spoke to. But transformers do fail occasionally so more downside. IMO, 120v wins.
