Our Christmas Lights Recycling program has run continuously for over 4 years and continues to operated in 2013.
We are amazed at the number of people who take advantage of this program every year. We receive several boxes of lights every day from all over the country.
Can I successfully use C7 LED Christmas Light Bulbs with threaded brass base in strings of 50 bulbs and if so, how many strings can I attach together? -Brian
The C7 LED bulbs can fit into any standard E12 (candelabra) base socket wire.
For LED bulbs the maximum length of cord that you can run is not determined by the power draw of the bulb or the number of bulbs but the maximum run length of your cord.
You've designed a spectacular Christmas light display and you realize that you need to gradually ramp up and down a few strands of mini lights as the tension builds to the high point of either Silent Night or Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.
Now, you're wondering what kind of lights can be dimmed and ramped up with an increase or decrease of the voltage.
Here is the "Yes" answer:
Your favorite team is playing this week. You're decorating for a prom. Perhaps you'd like multi-color lights but you don't want traditional, you'd like teal, purple, pink and yellow.
You'd like customized colors in your Christmas lights. I'd like to give you some ideas for customizing your display.
That's a good question. And one we hear from time to time.
It's 99% odds that the culprit is your set of batteries. As the battery lights drain the batteries, bulbs randomly start to dim. They don't go out all at once. This is true of the incandescent and the LED sets. In fact, on the LED sets that are multi color, the blue and green bulbs go dimmer before the rest of the bulbs.
When do I need an LED adapter for my light strings?

We get quite a few calls every year from Canadians asking if we ship to Canada.
Sadly, at this time, we don't ship outside of the Continental US, Hawaii and Alaska.
We've tried shipping to our friends in the North in the past but issues with high duties and fees and getting shipping companies to actually collect the duties and fees have made life difficult for us and our customers. What could be more frustrating than finding out that the extra charges exceed the cost of the lights or worse, the cost of the lights and shipping combined?
LED burn-in is the slight change of color that occurs after a few weeks of operation. It's most noticeable in the white bulbs and sets because pigment in the LED lenses compensate for color change.
What this means is that if you have two identical sets of lights and you plug one in for several weeks then plug in the second set, they will be a slightly different color. The difference won't be dramatic and if you didn't tell an onlooker that there was a color difference, they might not even notice.
