Minimal UV Emission: xenon lamps emit less UV radiation than halogen, which can damage fabrics and artwork over time
Easy Lamp Handling: unlike a halogen light bulb, the glass envelope of a xenon light bulb may be touched with bare hands (while the lamp is cool) without causing the lamp to fail prematurely
Case Quantity: available in case quantities of 50/case

These little bulbs were hard to find but after scouring the internet, Pegasus had them. Kind of pricey but they last for years. The bulbs I'm replacing were installed about 6 years ago.
I tested the 5-watt bulbs next to the 10-watt bulbs and could hardly tell a difference in brightness. So go with 5s if you want to save a couple watts.
Warm ambient light.
They get really hot.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Hard to find, easy to use

Had to go online to get replacement bulbs, but they are bright, easy to install and you can touch them with your bare fingers.
I have these bulbs mounted in a light strip under a kitchen counter. It is about 15 years old. Is there any way to tell the voltage of my system, or should I just guess it is the 12 volt?

It's best not to guess unless you don't have to. The light bulbs could have a shortened life if you use the incorrect voltage.
I would suggest two things -
1) Check out the old bulbs. Sometimes there is an etch on the light bulb indicating the voltage or model number.
2) Check out the transformer. It might indicate on the label whether it's 12 or 24V.
