Are you opening another store soon?

Yes! We are currently building another internet store to use in addition to this one. The new store is run on different software (MivaMerchant), and we expect this change to eliminate a lot of the frustrating bugs with our current software (bCentral). Keep your eye out for our grand opening!

We will soon be asking for people to beta test the new store. If you'd like to be on the list, please email us.

Do you have an easier-to-remember URL (web site)?

Yes, we have several fun website addresses chosen basically to make it easier to remember than "Inirgee," which we've found that people a) can't remember, b) can't spell correctly c) both.

So, pick one of the following URL's that appeals to you, or is easy to remember, and you'll always be able to find us. Each of the URL's below will take you to an intro page and have a link to click that will take you to www.inirgee.com (this site).







































































How much power do incandescent bulbs use compared to LED?

Here is a rule-of-thumb guide to power usage (watts) of various LED and incandescent bulbs: Wattage was tested using our Kill-A-Watt energy savings tool. This tool does not measure fractional watts, so to be fair we've rounded all figures to the next highest whole number. Thus, if a rating is 4 watts, you can expect your power usage to be 3-4 watts.

Bulb or string size & brand LED wattage rating and brand  Incandescent wattage rating
one C7 bulb 1.0 watt (it took 4 random bulbs in order to register 1 watt, and 6 to hit 2 watts). Bear in mind that  LEDs use slightly different wattage according to color. Imaginary Colours 5.0 watts
one C9 bulb 1.0 watt (it took 3 random bulbs in order to register 1 watt, and 6 to hit 2 watts). Bear in mind that  LEDs use slightly different watts according to color. Imaginary Colours 8.0 watts
25 C7 bulbs 9.0 watts Imaginary Colours 123.0 watts
25 C9 bulbs 9.0 watts Imaginary Colours 180.0 watts
70 C6 bulbs 2.0 watts Forever Bright  
70 M5 bulbs 2.0 watts Forever Bright  
50 Stars bulbs 4.0 watts Imaginary Colours RichWave  
25 C7 white bulbs 2.0 watts GKI  
100 C6 white bulbs 9.0 watts Imaginary Colours RichWave  
100 M5 warm white bulbs 9.0 watts Imaginary Colours RichWave  

My white lights don't match.  Why?

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.

We are now using the following color names to eliminate a lot of the confusion people have had: Cool White, Warm White, Amber.

Cool White is sometimes known elsewhere as White, Winter White, Pure White, Clear, Snow White.

Warm White is sometimes known elsewhere as Soft White.

Amber is sometimes known elsewhere as Candlelight, Antique Candlelight, Yellow, Gold.

How many lights do I need for my tree?

A popular rule-of-thumb to use when planning how many lights to buy for your tree is this:

Depending on how sparse or dense you prefer your lights, plan on 70 to 140 lights per foot of tree height.

You will want to adjust your light use by the size and shape of the bulbs you choose. As a general rule, large bulbs are spaced farther apart on the string than smaller bulbs. Naturally, therefore, you will need fewer bulbs per foot of height if you're using the large C9 or G50 bulbs, for instance.

Is UPS raising their rates?

Any responsible business will adjust its prices according to its costs or else it will go out of business, and be no good to its employees, investors, customers, and even the IRS.

All costs must be passed on to the customer in one form or another (this is why increased taxes and fees on businesses are really just tax increases on the general public).

UPS did announce a price increase which will go into effect on January 1, 2007 (graciously, after the holiday shipping season). Below is their official press release:

UPS Announces 2007 Rates

Press Release

New Pricing to Take Effect After 2006 Holiday Shipping Season

ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2006 - UPS (NYSE: UPS) today announced new list rates for 2007, including an average 4.9 percent increase for ground shipments and a net average increase of 4.9 percent on all air express and U.S. origin International shipments.

The increase for air express and international shipments is based on a 6.9 percent increase in the base rate, less a 2 percent reduction in the current fuel surcharge. The new rates will be posted online at UPS.com on Dec. 1 to provide customers details about changes to specific products and zones and will take effect on Jan. 1, 2007, after the 2006 holiday shipping season.

UPS is the world's largest package delivery company and a global leader in supply chain services, offering an extensive range of options for synchronizing the movement of goods, information and funds. Headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., UPS serves more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. UPS's stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange (UPS) and the company can be found on the Web at UPS.com. To get UPS news direct, visit pressroom.ups.com/RSS.

Your store name is really weird. What's it mean?

"Inirgee" is a creative and alternative way to spell "energy." Our intent is to help people find creative means to conserve energy, as well as find and utilize alternative means of producing energy.

Will I get spam from you?
If you mean junk email, the answer is "no." On second thought, if you mean a processed meat in a can, the answer is still "no."
Currently, (01-03-07) we use only three "inirgee.com" email addresses: info, sales, and tom. If you get an email from any other name at inirgee.com, it's not from us.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who are able to send email to anyone they like and forge the return address to be from anyone they choose. And often this is done by computer program, so it's done amazingly fast, and with a zillion different "from" addresses.

Suffice it to say that if you get spam from "jgxty" at inirgee.com, it's not from us really. Don't even open it. But if it is from "info," "sales," or "tom," it's probably legit.
