The Hampton Bay Low Voltage 10-Watt Equivalent LED Path Light shines brightly and is long lasting. It creates light similar to a halogen light, but uses over 80% less energy. It has a rated life of 50,000 hours and is virtually maintenance free, with no bulbs to change. The metal construction, powder coat finish and weatherproof electronics ensure it will serve for a long time. There is a quick-install wire connector with a cleated heavy-duty stake, making it quick, easy and safe to install. Light is directed toward the ground, to make a beautiful pattern of soft light that can illuminate steps, pathways and smaller plants. It's also a good security feature.
