A few weeks back, I was asked to test out RTGS Micro LED 60 Warm White Color String Lights. This let of LED lights is over 21feet long, and has 60 bright white lights spaced 4 inches apart. They run on 6 AA batteries and have eight selectable functions.
The lights come rolled up, so you don’t really realize how long they are until you unwind them. The wire is very flexible & sturdy, so you shape the lights however you want and not have to worry about the wire breaking. The control box has side-snap closures, and, while it’s not waterproof, you can safely use the lights outside as long as the box is protected from getting wet.
The lights themselves are pretty bright given their size. I had initially wanted to put them up under my carport to use as lighting, but there weren’t bright enough for the size of the space. Instead, I wrapped them around the edges of my metal patio table to use as an alternative to candles. I get leery of having candles down since I have a toddler. I also used them to light up the top of my picnic table at my Halloween party so everyone could see the snacks.
The preset functions all also pretty neat too. You phase through them by pressing the On/Off button, and the list is printed on the control box for easy reference. The optins are: Combination, In Wave, Sequential, Slow Fade / Every Other Light, Chasing / Flash, Slow Fade / All Lights, Twinkle / Flash, Steady On, & finally Off. The twinkle is my favorite. The lights also have a built in 6 Hours “ON’ and 18 Hours “OFF” timer that is automatically activated when lights are turned “ON”. If you want the lights to come on at a certain time, simply turn them on at that time than leave it. They will stay on for 6 hours, then turn off automatically for 18 hours, then turn back on at the same time you turned it on the first time. When used this way, new batteries will last over 14 days.
Overall, these are very versatile lights. You can use them for all sorts of things and they will hold up well. They are available on Amazon & the RTGS website for $12.95 (+ shipping). You can check out more of RTGS’s products by visiting their site, as well as their Facebook & Twitter.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
