Multicolor 'Chasing' LED Light Set, retail $6.99

The The Multicolor 'Chasing' LED Light Set is a string of 15 miniature multicolored LED Christmas lights; each "bulb" in the set is actually a "miniature bulb"-type diffuser -- the actual light sources are LEDs near the base of each "bulb".
It is labelled, "SYMPHONY OF LIGHTS", "AMAZING", and "CHASING LIGHTS".
The set gives a "bipolar" "chasing" effect when it is plugged in -- that is, half of the set "chases" in one direction, and the other half "chases" in tyhe opposite direction.
According to the packaging materials, up to 90 sets can be connected end-to-end; though each set still has to have its power transformer plugged in in order to operate.
Although you can strings these up like ordinary Christmas lights, they are specifically designed to be hung in a window -- this is because they have a "chasing" pattern that has both left and right sides. Hang the set as such so that the center of it attaches to the center upper frame of the window and the ends of the the set go toward the ends of your window.
This product is AC-powered, so I don't need to tell you which part to remove, carry with you on a long boat ride way out in the Pacific Ocean, drop in the Marianas trench, torpedo out of existance, and then rather emphatically tell you not to.
These light sets appear at least *reasonably* durable, in that they should not just fall apart on their own or through just casual handling.
This product is meant to be used as a seasonal light string (or for parties, weddings, and other festive occasions), not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, used, and abused; so I won't try to flush them down the toilet, bash them against the concrete floor of a patio or a steel rod, let our household's six kitty cats uranate (go to the litterbox) on them, run over them with a 450lb Quickie® Pulse 6 electric wheelchair, or perform other indecencies on them that a regular flashlight might have to go through.
The LEDs aren't dome-shaped like you'd expect; instead, they're covered with "raspberry"-style covers - this helps the lights to be visible at much greater viewing angles than a standard dome-shaped LED would allow.
The AC adapter outputs too low a voltage for the set to function properly -- the LEDs are quite dim -- and the green & blue LEDs fail to come on at all!!!
All of the sets tried (four others!!!) showed this very same issue.
In order to perform the spectrographic analyses shown below, I installed new alkaline AA cells in the "Try Me!" driver circuit box.

O boy, a set of Christmas lights flashing!
Actually, it kinda makes you want to kick a toliet off the wall and then proceed to "bete" "thuh" "livengg" "tweadle" "owt" "uv" "itt" "withh" "uh" "shuvle" doesn't it?

Well, the "chasing" effect looks nice
AC adapter outputs too low a voltage for the set to function properly (this is what nocked all of the stars off its rating!!!)
LEDs are much dimmer than expected (see directly above for why!)
