With Christmas fast approaching the hunt commences for decent quality festive lights. This six-pack of bottle lights allows you to add some festive cheer to individual or hard to reach objects or areas.
In lighting kit arrived simply packed in a resealable bag with each light separately wound around itself within. The strings will easily fit inside the again bag for storage. No instructions or paperwork were included and none needed. Take care when unwinding the lighting strings as they are quite delicate and seem to take a delight in getting into knots!
There are six two metre LED strings included, four are warm white and two multicoloured, each one with a bottle stopper styled battery housing with Off/On switch. The battery compartment of each light can be easily unscrewed to reveal three LR44 watch style batteries. I would have rather they used rechargeable batteries but LR44 are not dear and looking on Amazon I see you can buy packs of 50 for less than £5. As to how economical they are of course depends on the battery life but I have been using mine for several days now with no sign of them running down and so hopefully this may not be too much of an issue. Nevertheless, it would make sense to turn them off when not needed. Each light has a clear battery guard strip inserted between the batteries to prevent accidental use and these strips are robust enough to reuse for long-term storage, so don’t lose them.
The strings can be bent and manipulated in to position how you will and hold their shape pretty well which means they can be bent around or placed inside objects any way you wish. Once in position, they look great, with a gentle and ethereal warm light. There are no lighting patterns just a simple always on, which is really all that is needed.
This is a charming and very effective set of lights that should act some sparkle and colour to your festive or party celebrations.
