Epistar halogen-type LED lights.
We have a couple of halogen track light setups at our house. The bulbs use a lot of electricity, put out heat and fizzle a lot. They aren't cheap to replace, usually just under $10. This particular LED model is 3 watts instead of a halogen's 35 watts. They burn at a cooler temperature. $8 - free shipping. I like to buy anything hardware-related at our local Ace by Huckleberry's. But there isn't anything like this in my local hardware store. So I bought three of them on Amazon. There are cheaper deals there too, but I wanted them shipped fast.
The light they shine takes a little bit of getting used to. It's fairly white compared to the warm tones of the halogen. But, at a tenth of the energy use, I am sold.
