Priced at just £14.99, this set of indoor/outdoor globe lights have robust construction, seem built to last and hopefully will not need to be replaced every year. They have an attractive design with 1.7cm globes housing each of the 80 LED’s which are warm white and add a pleasant effect to the summer garden.
Presentation in a plain unbranded box is disappointing and makes the product less attractive as a gift. Anyway, inside the box is the 10m length 80 LED string set with hard-wired battery/control box, remote control and a surprisingly informative User Guide. The little globes are very attractive and far better than bare LED’s and although made from some form of plastic or resin, they do look like they are made from glass.
The control box houses the three AA batteries which should be enough to allow the device to run many nights, winter as well as summer – although the I would recommend, as with all lighting sets, that this be brought indoors for winter storage with perhaps a brief outing at Christmas. True, the lighting set is IP65 water-resistant, enough to keep it protected from everything short of water immersion, but you can never be too careful.
Controlling the item is easy enough and can be most easily done using the remote control. The remote control can be used to set the timer, lighting pattern and brightness level with the control box button allowing just the pattern to be set and the device turned off.
Once in position, the warm white lighting set does look good, aided perhaps by the large size of the glass effect lighting globes. Certainly, when correctly positioned they can add some real style to your garden or patio. If you need a set of decent quality robust indoor/outdoor globe string lights then this would be a very good buy.
