Find 20 watt low voltage (12V) landscape sealed beams that will fit those housings at Lowes. The housings take an MR-16 base.

I found that if you glue the socket in the holder (helps stop vibration of the sealed beam) and seal the wire exit with high temp RTV it keeps the housings a little more watertight.

12V 7ah SLA battery (for deer feeders) at Academy for about $15.

I wasn't born in Texas but I got
