Pretty Decent, but be prepared for repairs – 30-LED 3M Battery Powered Christmas Light (White LED 3xAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very bright on a full charge. The wire is soft and easy to move.
Cons:
There are about 5 individual strands of copper wire. If you hand them roughly they will come apart and you'll have to solder it back together. You can't tie it back together because there are only 5 strands. The battery box doesn't hold the batteries too well so a little aluminum foil and tape made it stick together.
Other:
They are not waterproof. They can handle a light sprinkle but water will get in under the protective sheath and rust the led.
Bottomline:
Be prepared for repairs or to throw them away. I like them. I've used the pieces that have formed from broken wires for other task.
