LED replacement for outdoor halogen flood-lights?

Posted by doofus (My Page) on

I'm tired of replacing the halogen bulbs in the outside fixtures. I also can't help but notice, that those bulbs heat-up instantly upon being turned on and stay very hot " which means, I'm wasting a lot of electricity not on (visible) light, but on useless (if not dangerous) heat.

I'd like to go with LED-based solutions " any advice? The spots are all wired already (obviously), so it need not be wireless or solar-powered. Ideally I would simply replace the burnt-out halogen bulbs (150 Watt) with compatible LED ones, but I could, I suppose, replace the entire fixture as well...

Thanks for suggestions!
