Our dear friend Julie, from the popular blog redhead can decorate will be reviewing one of our most popular items. It is the Outdoor Patio String Lights. Since the early spring this item has been flying off our shelves faster then we can stock them. She did run a giveaway but it's over now, and one lucky winner got two of those string lights.
Since this article was written a year ago I have some update on our patio string lights.
The new patio string lights include LED bulbs now.
I know you must be thinking LED bulbs will not look as authentic with those original strings lights. Well, not necessarily! Our LED Patio String Lights come with a 1-watt warm 2200K bulbs. It will really be difficult to tell the difference between the LED and incandescent bulbs.
Now, for the best part:
1. The bulbs will last you 10 times longer than the incandescent bulbs.
2. They are a shatter resistant LED Bulbs.
3. You will save huge on your electricity! The 1-watt bulbs vs. the 11-watt bulbs on this sting. With the LED it will be 24-watt to light the entire string vs. 264-watt. And that is just for one sting of 24 bulbs. Most of us use more than one of those stings at a time.
If you use two of those in your patio:
LED total wattage (1-watt bulb): 48 Watt
Incandescent total wattage (11-watt bulb): 528 Watt
So, the price may be just a little higher, $20.00 in this case but I truly believe it is well worth it.
