C7 Christmas Light Bulbs - Transparent Clear
These bulbs are sold in quantities of 25 and 1000. Price is per bulb. These bulbs are not sold with cords - those need to be purchased separately.

An estimate of the spacing between the bulbs is 12 inches - the most standard spacing in Christmas light installations. The use of the C7 bulbs adds to the light and airy feel of the entire display.
Clear or White C7 bulbs are trumped only by their bigger C9 cousins when it comes to popularity during the Christmas season. They are commonly used to outline rooflines, accent tree trunks, and oversized wreaths.
Draped between trees, strands of C7 light bulbs installed in white cords work well for party decoration. Before the trees fill in with leaves, you can wrap the upper branches of the tree and turn your backyard into a sculptural wonderland.
Because of their slightly smaller size (about the size of a night light bulb) use these replacement bulbs in your own (or our) C7 stringers
to wrap your tree's trunks before your guests arrive. Green cords work great for this application. Be sure not to exceed 200 bulbs (1000 watts) per standard household breaker.
These C7 lights are traditional incandescent bulbs and the filament casts a warm white glow. They are rated at 5 watts, 120 volts, .04 amps and have brass bases with nickel plating. The bases are Candelabra, also referred to as E12 (Candelabra). (Same base as a night light.)
Their estimated approximate lifespan is 3000 hours and will ultimately depend on installation environment and heat related to installation. These lights can be used in animated displays but animation will decrease their lifespan.
Warning: C7 and C9 incandescent bulbs heat up under operation. Do not rest them on heat-sensitive surfaces, next to plastic, or coil them up in such a way that allows the bulbs to rest against the insulation and/or sockets of their cords while they are turned on.
Do not nestle these bulbs into plastic tree limbs. Some of the latest models of plastic Christmas trees have super thin plastic needles that will melt with extended contact with incandescent C7 or C9 bulbs.
We suggest you purchase LED C7 or LED C9 bulbs for this style of tree.
These bulbs should not be covered with fabric or any type of flammable material.
Do not operate lights without supervision. When installed indoors on natural Christmas trees, make sure the tree is well watered, position bulbs so they do not come into contact with needles and limbs and do not operate lights without supervision. Locate an easy to access fire extinguisher near your tree.
