I threw those in the trash can yesterday, they did not have a brand name on them. The light pictured in the first post is most certainly a Malibu incandescent light.

Kohler and kichler do not make light fixtures. They make plumbing fixtures. I can assure you the villages installed fixtures were quite cheap. Don't be ridiculous and defend every aspect of your home simply because it is in the villages.

The reason the bulbs do not burn out is two fold, they are 12 volt and the are dc, the mitigating factor is you may not be using them much. None of this excuses their use in newer construction when inexpensive LEDs are available. That said they will burn out and those bulbs are difficult to find. That bank of lights was the second largest consumer of lighting energy in my home. Wasteful!
