looking for 12v post light

tom_in_texasApril 2, 2007

I'm looking for a Malibu-type 12v yard light to go on our 3" light post in the front yard. We moved into a house, and the old light recently got vandalized. It was one the former owner had crafted out of a 110v light fixture. I can't find anyone locally who sells 12v post lights. I'd rather not spend a ton of money...like, under $100 if possible. I looked at these...

The second "Traditional post top" on sale seems perfect, except when I went to check out they said minimum $100 order. Any ideas at all?

Thanks,

Tom in Texas

Buy a regular light and fit it with a 12 volt edison-base (standard base) bulb. These are available in various wattages at marine supply stores.

Even better, fit a 12 volt DC compact fluorescent. These are available from several renewable energy suppliers.

Did you ever find a 12v post light? I, too, am looking for an affordable low voltage post light -- not the deck style light, but a larger decorative style for brick columns in our front yard. The website you referenced appears to have been sold to another company -- the stock is not the same as before. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Or, were you able to re-fit a regular light?

Thanks.
