10 L.E.D. Christmas Lights, retail $~20.00 ()

This is a set of ten blue 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 light is covered with a large, clear, transparent "snowflake"; this serves to diffuse the light over a fairly large area.
They don't just sit there, they fade on & off smoothly and fairly slowly (~3.5 seconds full cycle time)
Remove the oval control box and the cardboard box with the AC adapter in it by using scissors or a very sharp knife to cut the tape holding the lid to the box the AC adapter comes in.
Unplug and get rid of the "try me" switch and battery box from the white oval control box, and plug the lights into the included AC adapter. Plug the large part of the AC adapter into any standard household (in the United States anyway) 110 to 130 volts AC 60Hz receptacle.
If you wish to disembowel the battery box to harvest the three AA cells, I can offer you no guarantees as to their State of Euphoria - er - uh - state of discharge (there I go thinking about the heavy metal band Anthrax again!!!); this will depend somewhat on how long the product has been on the shelf, and to a much greater extent on how long the product has been actuated in "Try Me" mode.
Decorate with these lights the same way you would decorate with other Christmas lights. Hang them on the front of the fireplace mantle, hang them in a window, put them in your Christmas tree, etc., or just hang the suckers off your dorm room ceiling for that special holiday feeling all year 'round.
Slide the on/off switch on the control box to the "on" position to turn all ten lights on; slide the switch the other way to turn the lights off.
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, and abused, so I won't try to drown them in the toilet tank, bash them against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, let my housemate's citty kats go to the litterbox on them, run over them with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, or perform other indecencies on them that a regular flashlight might have to have performed on them. 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.
All of the lights smoothly fade on & off in unison (all together), with a cycle time (from full on to off to full on again) of ~3.5 seconds
One of the lights - turned on of course.
The front porch, showing these snowflakes lighted.
I was not able to furnish "in use" (outdoor) photographs of Christmas
lights at my residences in Seattle, which is why none are shown.

I cannot provide it in other formats, so please do not ask.
That music you might hear playing in the background is a song called "Pheric",
from a demo on the Commodore 64 computer from the late-1980s.
Test unit of this was purchased by my sister at Raleys in Sacramento CA. USA on the evening of 11-30-06.
Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
