I wonder if anyone can help me with this? There are lights in my driveway using these bulbs, but I don't know where to go for replacements. :(

So - my question is - where can I buy these?

As usual - TIA. :)

Take one into Mitre 10. They may have them. Failing that try one of your local electrical suppliers (the ones that deal with the trade) they are happy to help walk in customers in my experience.

Yes - I tried both of those things, no joy. Part of the problem is that my husband installed these - and he is dead just now, so I can't ask him!

Do you have a Lighting Direct or Lighting Plus shop nearby? They might be able to help.

We have - I tried the last time the lights were yanked out by the 'Local Yokels' - no joy.

Do they have a brand name on them? That might be a help for a Google search.

No, no brand name - just what you see in the pics. They light up 'green', not yellow, by the way.

Have you tried Lamps Specs (lampspecialists.co.nz/‎). A few years ago I found their staff to be very knowledgeable.

They look like nothing more than just a bunch of LEDs inside a plastic case..

Yep - keeps my fingers off the LEDs...

Might be easier to just open it and replace the LEDs?

They don't come out, and look like no other LEDs I've seen. :(

the led's are just standard 3mm or 5mm led's in a custom dome. probably some cheap no name manufacture.
they look very low wattage so i doubt they are even made anymore as single leds are brighter. hence i wouldn't even bother trying to find the 'bulbs" just replace the whole light. odds are there is no replacement part.

if you really want the exact same thing, hunt around the Chinese led sites.
