Are you looking for festive fairy light decorations for your home without the hassle and clutter of mains cables. If so then you might consider battery operated fairy lights.
With the rise of LED technology the power requirements for attractive christmas fairy lights and decorations has plummeted which means that you can realistically and economically decorate your home inside and out with a wide range of LED battery fairy lights.
Fairy lights are ideal for bedrooms and living spaces – they’re brilliant for getting convenient LED lighting into cupboards which have no power socket close by.
Outdoor fairy lights are excellent for illuminating sheds and shrubs and with battery operation they can be placed almost anywhere.
Some fairy light strings have a battery compartment with an integrated timer function. These battery operated LED Timer lights are fast becoming increasingly popular. They tend to work by having a 6 hours on and 18 hours off schedule so from the moment you turn them on the string lights will come on every day at that time and go off 6 hours later. This saves the effort of having to turn your fairy lights on and off everyday and one set of batteries will last for 30 days or more.
Since the breakthrough in making the white LED, fairylights have come a long way. You can pretty much get any colour of the rainbow – red, yellow, pink, green, orange, purple, blue, multi-coloured fairy lights. There’s even different shades of white fairy lights to suit your decorations – warm white fairy lights have a subtle yellow hue to them (think candlelight) and cool white fairy lights are more of a pure white (think flourescent tube).
They are incredibly versatile and come in pretty much any length you require. One of the most popular lengths is 20 LED fairy lights which a lot of people use in home crafts and decorations such as light blocks, table centrepieces for weddings, christmas decorations (holly wreaths, candle holders etc). Their uses are really only limited by your imagination.
Another style of LED fairy light is what is known as ‘rice lights’ or ‘micro LED fairy lights‘. These are tiny but superbright LEDs along a metal wire. Each LED is coated in a small blob of acrylic no bigger than a grain of rice and the wire has a thin coating of the same material.
The advantage of the micro fairy light is that the lights are completely waterproof so they can be used in flower arrangements with oasis blocks, water beads and even underwater in vases and they look spectacular. Because the wire is so thin it is easy to conceal and it can be bent into shape as well allowing you to follow the lines of your fairy light decorations.
