Synchronized LED Color Changing Mini Lights For Christmas

Updated on July 2, 2011

It’s the holiday season again and many individuals will be engaged in selecting and purchasing holiday lights. It would be to the benefit of the consumer to purchase lights that are safe and efficient in reducing the consumption of electrical energy which always escalate at this time of year.

LED stands for light emitting diode. A light-emitting diode (LED) is an electronic light source.In electronics a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that restricts current flow chiefly to one direction while blocking current in the opposite direction (the reverse direction). Thus, the diode can be thought of as an electronic version of a check valve.

LEDs are used as indicator lamps in many kinds of electronics and increasingly for lighting. LEDs work by the effect of electroluminescence, discovered by accident in 1907. The LED was introduced as a practical electronic component in 1962.[2]All early devices emitted low-intensity red light, but modern LEDs are available across the visible, ultraviolet and infra red wavelengths, with very high brightness.

I am suggesting that you look into using this year LED lights. However make sure you purchase light that are intended for the specific holiday. Many individuals complainthat their Christmas light bulbs explode when installed outside.What you should know is that many lights that explode at this time of year were actually created for 4th of July celebrations and were created to explode, so make sure you get bulbs for the right holiday

Synchronized Christmas lights

The great thing about these lights is if one or two blow this does not prevent the other lights from working. If you like to have all bulbs working make sure you buy light where you can get available retrofit bulbs. Bulbs come in sized. Here is one way of identifying the size you need that will give you excellent service C 9, C 7 & G 20. You can use single or multi colored bulbs. You may buy them styled as premium or commercial. C7 light may be bought as string, rope, or net lights.

One important last warning. Many of the holiday LED lighting run the risk of being unsafe.  Make sure your LED lights are UL certified.  UL stands for underwriter’s laborites which is an organization that test and certify LED lights. If they do not have this certification logo, and should you have a fire incident arising from the using these lights you may not get insurance compensation. There are many manufacturers offering products with fraudulent stamp so be vigilant.

For the Christmas holidays waterproof LED lights are what you should consider using this year. They are said to be low in voltage, give high concentrate focused illumination, 95% safe and save on electricity consumption. If you plan to make a spectacular display this year, why not go further and use synchronized light. This is where your lights literally dance to music. All you would need is a computer, with speakers, a musical sequencing, lights and a light control panel. LED light are said to have a longer life span than the ordinary incandescent holiday lights use over 30 years. They can last up to 100,000 hours

      Just bought LED lights at Home Depot. Home Accents set 100 indoor, plugged them in and half don't come on some have covers missing and one light has the wires completely exposed, and live. On my way back to return all of them now.
