I also opted to retrofit the 25 watt lamps uplights with 5 watt LEDs. They cost much less than going for out of the box LED lamps and use about 75-80% significantly less power. The four lamps price about $80 every single and the LED bulbs ran about $25, from my nearby DIY lighting/garden provide shop, Urban Farmer Operating the line, stabbing the lights into the ground, and wiring everything utilizing silicon filled wire nuts and covering the joints with zip tied plastic bags only took me about 30 minutes. That even included burying the line below mulch. I set the lights up to the 11 volt rail since, really, my LEDs weren't in a position to vary brightness, and anything more than 11 volts gets expended as heat power.
