The ones I bought came with 12V bulbs (not LEDs). I just changed them with 24V equivalents from NAPA, put the Pinz trailer plug on the end, and I'm all set for most any trailer that I need to use the Pinz with.

Harbor Freight page says 12V for their LED units.

Yes... I bought the 12 or 15$ version. They work. NOTE: If left outside and exposed to weather for 12 months. The wire(s) inside the plastic cord... umm... disappeared/changed into white powder. Oddest thing I ever saw.

A sign of a copper clad aluminum wire. Crimped ends exposes some of the Aluminum,
add a little moisture over time -- presto White AlOx everywhere. The cost of cheap :wink:
