    Go with BBB suggestion to replace with a LED track (if you want a new type of light).

    I would avoid halogens, mostly because they are costly to replace, and LED are more power efficient and should last alot longer then the halogens. Halogens also put off alot of heat when on (most are hot to the touch). LED lights are easier to make than halogens, but LEDs are more expensive (companies still trying to make more and more money).

    Also LED bulbs convert 120V AC (alternating current) to low voltage DC (Direct Current). An LED runs on DC. Basicly a diode converts the AC to DC (kinda like a car's alternator which has a diode (converts AC to DC), which charges the battery).
