Don’t you just love modern technology and how much easier and convenient it can make our lives. Modern day battery operated outdoor lights is just one example of these new technology ideas that I certainly appreciate the arrival of .
Of the many things that conjure up Christmas in my mind are the bright shiny lights decorating not only the tree in our home but also the whole neighborhood during these dark winter evenings. Although the tradition of adding lights goes way back, my earliest memories were of the old incandescent bulb type.
These were painted glass of all colors and would fail to work every year we brought them out to decorate the tree. We would all sit around taking each one out in turn to try and locate the one bulb that had failed by replacing it with a know working one. Or sometimes more than one bulb, as with this type of lighting if one failed nothing worked.
Not so today with all the options we have using these new LED lights that can appear to dance and hypnotize us and it happens all over town. We have nowadays managed to create what the original creators of the very first Christmas lights could only have dreamed about, thanks to LED and batteries.
I have added a selection of Christmas lights that would help brighten up any neighborhood.
My first suggestion comprises of this set of 100 LED outdoor as well as indoor string of lights. You can choose between the colored set or the bright white set, or even create your own Christmas patterns and themes utilizing both sets.
The great benefit with using battery power rather than mains is it overrides the problem of having to feed power cables to these outdoor lights. With these batteries which are 4 “AA” batteries and designed to last up to a full 30 days (switched on for 6 hours daily)which suits fine for the Christmas period.
They can be set to display various combinations of Slowly fading, slow glowing, a chasing and flashing pattern, to slowly fade, create waves, provide a sequential array, stay on at all times and of course twinkle. Altogether there is the opportunity to create 8 different patterns via the buttons.
The 100 lights are strung along a 34 foot cable ready to be hung up in your chosen location be it indoors or outdoors. Switching off is done by simply holding the control button for 5 seconds. Get more information here.
50 Outdoor Battery Operated LED String Lights
If you think that 100 of these lights are too much I’ve found an option where they offer sets of 50 battery operated outdoor lights of quite the same type. They can also be used indoors and have a variety of 8 different settings that can be set to work automatically.
The settings allow you to have the lights alternate from multi color to clear, clear lights only and timing settings of on for 6 hours and then off for 18 hours. Suit yourself if you want them to turn on themselves when dark.

The length is 17.5 feet and requires 3 D batteries which are not supplied.
Mixing and matching LED string lights along with other Christmas ornamental decorations such as fiber optic christmas village scenes can all add to better and fresher display.
