    Think it's called a G9 and often found in security lights.

    They have also been made obsolete as of September 2021.
    LED replacements are available but are often physically larger than the halogen ones, and may not last long due to cramming the LEDs and electronics into such a small size.

    Existing stocks can still be sold, the restriction is on importing or manufacturing them.

    If G9 then LED look like that G9-comp.jpg you can see the huge difference in size of the two LED's. The small one allows the cover to be used, but caused problems with flashing when switched off and shimmer when switched on, the larger one had smoothing capacitors inside nearly size of whole small bulb and worked great, but covers could not be fitted and due to lack of marking on the bulbs technically not permitted to sell in the UK.

    But G4 and G6.35 look the same but are 12 volt, so not sure if G9 from picture.
