Go to ebay search G4 12v and get em for half that price at most. See the M4 second from the top in that pic? Zoom in and look at that copper winding/regulator. Stay away from those, they will turn several TV's off or on as they are the same radio frequency as your remote.

I totally agree, go to E-bay and look up the G4 base and take a look, there are many to choose from, just ordered 10 of the G4 5730 6 chip 250 lumen bulbs for a buddy and they were $18.96 for all ten. Hard to beat those prices. Just make sure you get the good ones, canbus are the best.
On another note Bad Bolt wanted some pictures of my solar system so here they are. As far as the batteries go the wiring looks like a mess but they work great and I know where all the wires go! lol. As far as wiring the solar system it isn't hard at all, 2 leads come from your solar panels, they go into the charge controller, 2 wires come out of the charge controller to your batteries. The fun starts when you run the wiring, finding a good route to install then can be a challenge. I wouldn't be without a solar system, just have to figure out the best spot to add 2 more batteries for a total of 6! Then I'll have more power, woo - woo - woo!!

? ? ? TV remotes use infrared light NOT RF energy.

Alright, mdpuff, you've got me stoked up on this excellent solar system you've setup.

Would you mind posting source and model number information for the components? I already see you have the MPPT 45 controller.

I would really like to price this out and give it serious consideration.

Great looking job!

Like the previous poster said, 10 pack for less than $20. So why pay $10 a pc for those old school LEDs? Is that your site?

Hey Bad Bolt, nice to see you are stoked on a solar system. The model number is E250B on the solar panels they are the high voltage (37V open) 250 watt panels. Hooked in series they produced 73 volts on a cloudy day when I installed them. Got them from Solar Penny in Meza Az, they are $275.00 each. They have a web site so you can bring them up and check our their systems. The complete system cost me around $1000.00 and I installed it myself. The next upgrade is going to be a remote display for the charge controller, it is mounted in the rear closet and it would be nice to have a display to show me charge voltage and amps, all it has now the way it came out of the box is a series of LED lights, red for low battery, yellow for medium and green for good, green LED flashes at full charge.

Hope this helps!
