Ok, where does everyone buy their replacement MR11 and MR16 bulbs? Home Dump only has the flood I want the spot! Any other spots?

Check with the guys in the commuting forum. Several of them build their own lighting systems and have some ideas about bulbs. I get my bulbs from the company that makes the light. In my experience, "hardware store" bulbs may have fit or performance problems, even when they seem to be the exact same bulb.

I just ordered some from bulbs.com (haven't received them yet, I think others have had luck with them). I think I've also seen lightbulbsdirect.com mentioned. (Downside is that these places will charge you $6-8 shipping per order.)

Battery Space. Shipping is expensive so order more than one.

Still cheaper than direct replacements. Thanks! I'll post up in commuter too.
