  • Fun, Bright, and Decent Build Quality

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Very good price!
    It lights up nice and bright, and runs for several hours on a set of 3 AAA alkaline batteries (ballpark, 4 hours before they dim). With a set of rechargeable, these are even more fun and economical to use.
    Two settings - blinking and constantly on.
    Build quality is fairly good.

    Cons:

    The cables are a little on the fragile side, so handle gently, and avoid too much moisture.
    The battery case isn't watertight, and the power switch can be a little stubborn.

    OtherThoughts:

    These put out enough light to easily light up a tent, RV, a small-to-medium sized room and other such areas, if mounted right. I used these as backup lighting for my basement storage areas, and they work quite well. If the power goes out, they might be more useful than a lantern for lighting a large work area. I might take them camping to illuminate our gazebo kitchen tent. These would also work well as signal light in a pinch.

    Bottomline:

    For the price, these are very good portable string lights. The light output is very good. It's pretty energy-efficient. The build quality is adequate. I'm definitely going to get more of these.
