    Hi,

    I would like to inform you in advance that in terms of current, voltage, etc., I am a total layman, so if any of my questions is ridiculous, please let me know. Namely, I currently have halogen lighting in the kitchen, three bulbs seem 35W, as in the photo below:

    because they shine a little weak and additionally heat very much, I decided to replace them with LED bulbs, but my current lighting is connected to a transformer:

    and here my question, if the LEDs operate at 230V, will they work in conjunction with this transformer? Should I choose any other bulbs for this set? I am asking for your understanding because I am green in this matter.

    the bulbs I want to buy are:

    The bulbs you want to buy operate on 230V, so no trafo is needed.

    Current power cables from the transformer to the 12V bulb holder, when changing to LED GU10 230V, must be adapted to 230V.

    The transformer alone will not be needed for LED 230V, in addition, such a transformer consumes about 10..15W (VA) for itself, so that we lose unnecessarily power.

    And why don't you buy LED on MR16 to do nothing?

    Purchase of LED with 12V AC, DC marking.
    By the way, they are more durable than gu 10.

    Of course you don't have to change the installation.

    Thank you for all the answers, I can't remove the transformer (I think) because I also have the lighting above the hood connected to it. In that case, I will buy a 12v led, because it will probably be the simplest solution, do you recommend any specific company?

    Go to the store and choose the ones that match the color of the light and its intensity. In addition, the color of the frame and cover. Matte, semi-matte.

    As above; the 12V LED socket should be written 12V AC / DC
