Those silly Christmas lights

Postby idahobeef » Mon Dec 26, 2016 8:29 am

Soooo, NOW is the time to buy those silly Christmas lights! My buddy lost power a few weeks back but he had a few of these so he strung them up and tied them to a battery and POOF, lights! They lasted all night on the battery and gave off enough local light for everyone to see just fine, but they were hard to spot at a distance (prowlers couldnt find them). Just a thought!

I've used them in the house when the power went out.

I have the LED lights, 5 strings, 70 LED lights/string and only burns .04 amps/string, and throws alot of light.

last year, I found strings of LED lights that you use with a battery for only .99 cents a string (on clearance). I bought 12 strings! Just uses AA batteries! Very bright. I just checked and this year, they are $9.99! http://alexnld.com/product/30-led-batte ... ing-light/ -k
