Refurbishing your home is totes going to cost you a fortune. And if you’re on a budget, that isn’t a practical option. According to interior design experts, sometimes, what you’ll need is a single change in your decor. A single addition that will make all the difference.
After all, “simple” is safest, yet brings the most allure in ways you may have never imagined. This is so with Moobibear’s LED Fairy Lights. They’re not your ordinary set of tiny bulbs and you’ll learn why as you read on.
More than the aesthetic that LED fairy lights bring, we’ll also be tackling their safety, ease of use, and ways to DIY-fix them in case they’re damaged. You’ll also learn about their longevity and what you can do to maintain them for longer.
Are LED Fairy Lights Safe?
In a word, yes. LED fairy lights are safe. How so? First, we’ll have to mention incandescent bulbs. These are the typical bulbs a lot of homes and business establishments utilize (not unless they’ve already switched to LED).
Incandescent bulbs have the tendency to overheat when left on at length. Others even explode lightly. This usually happens because their filament oxidizes too much, turns very brittle, and then burns out. Either that or the manufacturer was pieced together with low-quality materials. Though the first is more likely.
Now that we’ve made this clear, LED fairy lights are made of soft copper wire that’s actually silver-plated. This means that they run on a very low voltage. Thus, they almost never insulate heat or burn out.
In fact, we’ll go as far as to say that they’re so safe, you can hang them at home and have your children run around without you feeling anxious for their safety!
How Long Do Fairy Lights Last?
Let’s divide this into 2 categories. Don’t worry, we’ll make our descriptions brief. The first category has to do with the batteries, for the battery-operated kind. Whatever inscriptions are written at the back of the battery pack have, that’s your answer.
Most drugstore AA batteries can last for up to 5 to 6 hours. On the other hand, AAA batteries last for up to 9 hours. Likewise, this may change depending on how long you’ll leave your LED fairy lights on.
As for the 2nd category— the fairy lights bulbs themselves. They’re tiny but they are NOT to be underestimated! LED fairy lights contain diodes (hence the acronym LED: light-emitting diode) and these are responsible for luminance. To get to the point, it’s said that they have an astounding lifespan of up to 75,000 hours! Now that’s a huge number none of us expected!
In consequence, you can turn on these gorgeous lights and have them shine for quite a long period of time. Plus, if you’re able to purchase quality fairy lights, they won’t feel hot-to-the-touch as well. That’s added safety for the family.
How To Fix LED Fairy Lights
Often, the battery pack cable becomes disconnected from the switch. When this happens, solder it back on. Next, utilize hot glue to reattach the battery pack to cable to the battery pack itself. Don’t forget to either unplug this device or remove its batteries before you start your DIY.
