This new set of Indoor/Outdoor fairy lights from QUTAII arrived plainly packaged in a plastic bag with the just the light set and the UK power supply adapter inside. No User Guide or data sheet was included or needed.
Build quality seems first excellent. The is basically a single 10M long heavy duty transparent cable with 100 bright warm white LEDs set into it with a UK plug and control box on the end. The light string is rated IP65 which means it can be used outdoors in most weather conditions – normal rain is OK but not water immersion or sustained water jets. Although we are not told, I suspect the rating applies just to the wire and not the plug, so best to keep that out of the rain.
Once set up using the device is easy enough. There is a single button on the plug/controller which cycles through the eight lighting modes: Combination, Wave, Sequential, Slow Glow, Chasing/ Flash, Slow Fade, Twinkle/ Flash, Steady On. The LED’s are a very attractive warm white, almost amber in colour, but are very bright and perhaps too bright for many indoor locations.
This is a good quality and well-made set of LED Fairy Lights, best suited for outdoor use but which can be used with good effect indoors in the right location. The current price of £12.99 is not cheap compared to lesser rivals but you do get what you pay for here.
