When it comes to small Christmas lights, then the latest models on the market are classed as C9 LED bulbs with them taking on the familiar candle shape. These lights are the replacement for the older incandescent bulbs that have been used for decades, but now these newer versions can offer you so much more than you could ever imagine.
First you should be made aware of the fact that C9 is the bigger version of these particular types of bulbs and they contain anywhere between three and five LEDs on each bulb. You are able to buy them in various colors and indeed they get their color from the diodes themselves within the bulb and all of this is then encased in a hard plastic outer covering that is often faceted in order to push the light out in different directions. These surfaces are often colored in order to further enhance the shade of light and this is much better than the old incandescent bulbs where the color was merely painted on the glass and fell off over time.
One of the best things about these bulbs is that they will consume less than 1W per bulb, but even though this does not sound like a lot of power this is still the equivalent of anywhere between 5W and 10W with the older incandescent versions. This reduction in the number of watts is due to the improvements in the technology, but you should also know that they are far more efficient than the older models and this is also why you should look at changing over to C9 LED bulbs as quickly as possible.
When it comes to the lifespan, then these bulbs will generally last for up to 50,000 hours and this is a huge increase in hours when you compare them to the incandescent versions where they would last for around 3000 hours before needing to be replaced. This is of course due to the fact that they do not require any thin wire to generate the light and they do not produce the same amount of heat resulting in them lasting longer.
Finally, you do have a number of options available when it comes to colors as well as how you can buy them. The range of colors are what you would expect from Christmas lights meaning white, blue, red, yellow, and green are the most popular, but you may also wish to buy them in a string with this number also varying depending on the manufacturer. Do also note that some manufacturers also produce lights that flicker with this just adding something extra to your light display.
So do yourself a favor and switch to these C9 LED bulbs for your Christmas lights and benefit from them lasting longer, offering you the same amount of light, and using less electricity in the process with this saving you money. They are available as replacement bulbs or can be purchased in bulk as is the norm for Christmas lights and with them being easy to simply screw into place should one break and with a range of colors available there is no doubt that the perfect choice is currently for sale.
