Advantages of using battery-operated Christmas lights
Battery-powered Christmas lights have become the most popular choice for Christmas decorations in recent years, and for good reason. Consumers see the many benefits of using them. The most common used today are LEDs. These come in two styles, traditional electric Christmas lights (incandescent bulbs) and battery operated Christmas lights. Battery operated Christmas lights give off a bright white light and produce better color than standard bulbs. They consume much less energy and last much longer than standard lights. They use between 90 and 98% less electricity than incandescent and will last 16 times longer.
The most common battery-operated Christmas lights are string lights, which can be all white or multi-colored. However, they are available in many other shapes and styles and can be used for interior or exterior decoration. These LEDs run on various types of batteries, depending on their size and how many lights are on the string. Most of these run on AA, 3A, C, or D batteries.
One tip is to consider using rechargeable batteries to save even more money. These LEDs come in many different shapes, forms, sizes, and colors. When buying them, make sure you know what kind of use they are designed for.
Outdoor versions are more durable and weather resistant. You don’t want to use interior lights outside. The strings vary in length. However, another advantage of battery-operated Christmas lights is the fact that you can combine many more strings to create whatever length is needed. Traditional chains are generally limited to just three chains. Anything else becomes a fire hazard. Most battery operated Christmas string lights are used to decorate the Christmas tree, wreaths and other indoor uses.
Outdoor string battery LEDs can be used to decorate your home exterior, landscaping, and patio, and because you can combine multiple strings, you should have no trouble covering everything you want. Best of all, since battery LEDs don’t require any cables, you don’t need to run miles of extension cords into an outlet. There are no wires to trip over, disconnect, and no major losses of electricity.
Battery operated Christmas lights are easier to use as they do not require an electrical outlet. You can install them anywhere you want and there is no need to hide the power cables. There is no need to worry about someone tripping over an extension cord running across the floor. No unsightly tangles of power cables.
They are ideal for hanging crowns. Again, you will not have wires coming out of the crown to an outlet. The most popular use for battery-operated LEDs is the Christmas tree. They make tree installation easy because it doesn’t need to be placed near a power outlet. These LEDs also do not hot burn and do not plug into the wall, eliminating a fire and safety risk.
You can buy battery operated Christmas lights that are fireproof. These will not heat up and pose a threat to set your tree on fire. Battery powered lights last much longer than standard incandescent lights, are more durable, safer, and cost much less to use. That is why more and more consumers choose to use these lights for Christmas decorations.
