These technologically advanced light emitting diode (LED) holiday lights use 80-90% less energy than conventional mini-lights and will burn for 20+ years of continuous use. They are the safest holiday lights on the market - constructed of solid flameproof epoxy plastic and are virtually indestructible. Additionally, they operate much cooler than conventional lights - about 1 degree above room temperature, making them safer to use either indoors or out. As an example of their energy-efficiency, up to twenty strings can be connected end to end.* If one bulb is inoperable the other bulbs will continue to light. These light sets are guaranteed by the manufacturer for life.
These lights are built with patented circuitry to maximize efficiency. This revolutionary design concept eliminates the use of traditional components that add to cost and generate heat. In essence the circuitry allows the LEDs to flash on and off with AC power. Like a television set, the flashing occurs sixty times per second and is invisible to the eye. By flashing the LEDs on and off this way, the circuit can be made at least twice as efficient as is possible with traditional LED circuitry. Therefore, the lifetime of these bulbs is rated at 200,000 hours or more than 20 years of continuous use and much longer if just used seasonally.
More LED Info
IMPORTANT: "White" (aka "Clear") LED lights are not at all like the regular incandescent lights! White LEDs are whiter--some say they have a bluish or purplish tint. Each LED bulb is manufactured individually, so some variance in color is to be expected. White LED lights are NOT the same as "Candlelight" LED lights! If you have questions, contact us before you order, so you're sure to get what you're expecting.
*Underwriter's Laboratories recommends that only 3 sets be connected end-to-end.
