11", single bulb - https://www.menards.com/main/ligh...218&ipos=5

13" two bulbs - https://www.menards.com/main/ligh...723654.htm

15" three bulbs - https://www.menards.com/main/ligh...723654.htm

Each one has bronze, nickel and white color variations. Sale valid till 11/4. Also, additional 11% rebate. Shipping varies.

I personally got 2 boxes (4 lights) just to use their white glass bowl - it fit my existing lights, which had yellowish tint glass that I hated. The 13" light has glass bowl with outer diameter about 9"5/8-9"3/4 for those in similar need. Funny thing is they sell replacement glass bowls only at twice the price Applause Lights are cheaply made but look ok, have top insulation and so on. Nothing special but at $5-$7 a piece - hard to beat.

Note: Menards charges 25% restocking fee for all online orders. It's best to buy at the store.

I guess, I only buy cheap stuff cause I am yet to see a fixture that comes with copper wiring. Any scientific insides how bad is that?

Just make certain it doesn't have any moisture (such as outdoors, where condensation could occur) as aluminum will corrode. Also, make sure there is plenty of room in the junction box and that you don't cut wires too short as aluminum heats up quite a bit and expands/contracts. If it expands and it's too tight, then wires could come loose, causing arcing too occur & potential house fires.



All of the above being said - I personally have no problem using aluminum wiring for something like this - it's just something to keep in mind

Funny as you mentioned, recently replaced outside fixtures - both old and new were with aluminum wires. And of course the old ones were corroded. Regarding the heat, I assume everyone will use LED from now on, so that cable will not get warm at all with 10-20 watts drawn.

Actually, it probably not corousion as aluminum doesn't corrode. Oxidation is the proper term I think.
