If you want deck lights to look pretty at anchor then you need LED. The do not work as well as Halogen but boy they don't draw no juice
In addition to lower power requirements, enabling the owner to use smaller gauge wire, the other advantage of LED lighting over incandescent (including Halogen) is that when properly wired and mounted, LEDs have a much longer lifespan (50K+ hours). The longer lifespan is the only reason that I can fathom for replacing an incandescent steaming light with an LED.
