Bright and Beautiful – 30-LED 3M Battery Powered Christmas Light (White LED 3xAA) Reviews

Very bright from all angles, with great battery life considering the brightness and number of lights. Strung over a picnic table at a campsite, this is more than decoration - it's a true light source, providing a nice even light around the area. Think of it as a lantern that's much easier on the eyes, and more fun.
Battery compartment is not impressive; a thin metal piece from inside flew out a couple of times while swapping batteries. It took some care to insert batteries and close it while keeping everything together.
Were noticeably dimmer after two or three long nights of use, but this was not disappointing given the light output and use of only 3 AA's.
On a camping trip and at Burning Man, I used this in a variety of ways, and was impressed with the brightness, as well as the toughness of the wiring and bulbs; it stood up to being strung through trees, pack staps, etc. I even stepped on it by accident once or twice, with no ill effect. It just could use a tougher battery pack.
