Every festive celebration has to have lights, and the more there are, the merrier we all be. For decades now, strings of lights have always been powered using a standard two-pin plug. Technology today allows us to have string lights powered by any device with a USB port, such as a computer / laptop or a power bank, leaving all our house plug points free for other expediencies and, in fact, giving us the opportunity to use our lights in locations which are far from any friendly neighborhood plug point. The following 10 meter USB-powered light strip sets (of 100 LEDs each) are all available on Amazon.
MANSAA Home Decor LED Lights
MANSAA's cool white LED lights have a soft ambience to them which could either illuminate a garden patch or be the perfect substitute for the proverbial dim lights (with suitable shading) in the sitting room during a romantic interlude. The LEDs are strung on high grade, well-insulated copper wire which is 0.4 mm thick and flexible enough to be curled around objects. The USB plug has an output voltage of only 5V, and so it won't give you a shock.
LTETTES Fairy String Lights
LTETTES's dewdrop-shaped LEDs are just the thing to light up your outdoor winter parties and give them that special misty glow that brings great cheer to your heart. The bulbs have a long life of 50,000 hours, operate at a low working voltage, and have low heat emission. The thin copper wire connecting them is pliable enough to be shaped around almost anything. Note, however, that while the copper wire itself is waterproof, the USB plug is not.
XERGY Fairy String Lights
XERGY's light strip is composed of three strands of 0.4 mm thick copper wire with plating twisted together, as against most other brands' two strands of 0.3 mm thickness, thus making it exceedingly durable. The LEDs are rated at 50,000 hours lighting life. The strip, but not the USB, has IP65 waterproof protection. Coil the bulbs along strips of cloth of different colors and you'll be treated to a feast of hues and shades like you've never seen before.
Pink Kites Home Decoration String Lights
Like the XERGY set, the Pink Kites set is composed of a three-layered copper strand, thus increasing the brightness of the lights. The lights require a supply voltage of only 5 V, and hence consume less power, thus making them energy-saving bulbs. This durable but pliable light strip can withstand accidental splashes of water, and hence can even be used outdoors.
