MR16 LED Bulb

In a previous post, I mention my 5 watt-led landscape lighting kit; however I forgot to mention my new MR 16 LED bulb.

Many of you have a system already and may not want to change all of your fixtures. Here's what I have so far: a new MR 16 LED - 5 watt bulb that fits your typical up,down light.

Take out that halogen 20 watt or 35 watt and put in the 5 watt. The bulb is good for 10,000 hours and save 75-85 percent in energy.

Oh yes, these bulbs are also great indoors for track lighting fixtures that use MR16.

Hope you enjoy the info...

I'm planning on tiling my whole shower with black, grey and clear glass 1x1 tiles. I would love to add four (4) MR16s to illuminate the shower and showcase the work from overhead. The warm moisture is going to be a problem. From your experience should I purchase an enclosed recessed MR16 can light for indoor use? Outdoor use? Do I even need an enclosed can fixture? Do LEDs have problems in this type of high moisture setting? General questions about these lights in high moisture areas, like showers...thanks! :)

You will want to purchase a recessed light made specifically for moisture. There are LED models available... try

Hope this helps. Good luck with your project!
