LED Multicolor C7 Lights, retail $7.19 (www.rightaid.com)*
Manufactured by (Unknown) for Right Aid (www.rightaid.com)
Last updated 12-07-13





This is a set of 25 multicolored LED Christmas lights that are designed to be hung in your Christmas tree; though you can hang them just about anywhere you might hang traditional Christmas lights.

Each LED is surrounded by a translucent plastic diffuser that has the same shape and size as a traditional C7½ incandescent Christmas bulb -- but this entire set uses only 2.160 watts of power!!!

These lights are dimmer than their incandescent counterparts, but I knew that full well when I made the purchase!

 SIZE



To use this set, just untangle them like traditional Christmas lights, and (to borrow a phrase from a popular air deodorant commercial) ♫plug it in plug it in♫!

Decorate with them as you'd normally decorate with Christmas lights -- that is, encircle the Christmas tree with them, carefully staple them to your window or door frames, drape them across the mantle, or just string them across your dorm room ceiling for that special holiday feel all year 'round.



This light set is meant to be used as a decorative light set in a dry area, 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 five kitty cats uranate (go to the litterbox) on them, run over them with a 450lb Quickie Pulse 6 (motorised wheelchair), or perform other indecencies on them that a regular flashlight might have to go through. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The set includes two spare lamps, but they're the small type and I haven't figured out how to remove the plastic (C7½ bulb-shaped) covers on these lights to actually use them.
Spare lamps in red and yellow only are furnished; perhaps they only include them because of a government mandate that all plug-in Christmas light sets sold in the US must include at least two spare bulbs (this mandate should have really been revised years ago when LED-based light sets came into popularity!).


Here is one of the spare lamps.

These bulbs do not get hot or even warm, so there is no fire hazard here!



The lights in my window as they'll be all holiday season.
That white light you see near the bottom of the window is my Carlon FPC1525P Warm White LED Battery-Operated Candle.
