I have used a few curtain lights in the past and although they have all looked very pretty once up they were a nightmare to set up, one and all, since they all used ultra-thin copper wire that only needed to be looked at to get into an impenetrable tangle. Less so here, and this set looks better too.
This lighting kit consists of ten 28 LED hanging strings, each string having 7 colours with 4 lights to each colour. The set is USB powered with a button on the USB plug to scroll through the light options and power the unit off. A credit card size remote control is provided which allows each lighting option to be selected and the lights dimmed and switched on/off. When the Timer button is pressed the unit runs 6 hours on and 18 hours off. Unlike cheaper rivals, this set has anti-tangle wire (well, sort of) and good robust hooks to support the strings. A short and to the point User Guide is also provided. Most of the rival curtain lights are warm white only but this set is fully multicoloured.
Setting the lights up is far easy than with the copper wire rivals but by no means exasperation free. The thicker support wire does make the job far easier as it does the job of taking the kit down again and folding it up for storage. According to the Amazon page, these lights can be used outdoors but I have seen no specific IP rating and would myself hesitate to install them anywhere that they could get seriously wet. That said, the lights are not mains powered and can even be run from a Powerbank and so outside use would probably not be too risky. Here is a tip: the best way to take the lights down for storage is to do it slowly and carefully, string by string, winding each string around your fingers into a loop and securing it with a bag tie. Any other way will only lead to madness, confusion and sorrow without end.
Once up the multi-coloured lights really do look fantastic and a big step up from the copper wired twinklers, too good to save just for Christmas!
For the £11.99 price, this is a great buy.
