Perhaps what sets these string lights apart from most are that they are in the shape of a pineapple. Looking through the customer reviews, I got to see so many clever ways of using these lights. Some people have pineapple art up and use these lights to illuminate the art. Others used them for Tiki Bars or to cheer up the look of a bedroom, kitchen or dorm room. A customer commented, "I love these lights! They are perfectly pineapple shaped and a very cute addition to my dorm room. They are gently bright, I would use a couple sets of them to fill a room. Awesome product, worth the price."
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder we all know. Even so, the majority of the reviews left by customers for The GIGALUMI Pineapple String Lights had comments about them being nice looking. Here is one of those comments, "Let's be real: string lights are usually kinda cheesy and cheap-looking. These, however, are grown-up and sophisticated - cute but not cutesy. They're actually made of metal (the pineapples, anyway), which makes them feel more like real decor than some add-on from a teenager's bedroom. I currently have them above my bed, casting cage-like shadows on my ceiling, but I could seem them being charming in a kitchen or covered patio."
White, Not Yellow Like in the Photos
I'm not sure why so many of the string light companies have lights throwing off a yellow ambiance when in fact it is white. This is another one of the string lights that show yellow lighting in the photos but they are actually white. A customer had this to say, "The only downsides are the LEDs, which are bright white, not the warm yellow in the photos, and the battery pack, which I had to use a knife to pry open. Overall, though, I'm crazy for these lights, and will probably order a few more sets to give as gifts!"
Keep in mind that these string lights are battery operated. You will need to purchase 3 AA batteries since they are not included. Not everyone was pleased with the fact that they are battery operated. A customer commented, "These lights are really cute, but unfortunately I had problems with some of the strings not lighting up as bright as they should. After a couple weeks of use, they gave a dull glow instead of a bright glow which helps make the wire pineapples pretty. Not fond of having to use batteries. Going to try a different brand that plugs into the wall."
When I first looked at the photos, I thought of 10 inch vintage patio pineapple lights that I grew up around. But keep in mind that these pineapple lights are very small at just around 2 1/2 inches. However the majority of customers thought that the size was just right. Here a customer comments on the size, "My 13 year old daughter loved these. They are just the right size. Not too small and not too big. Excellent quality. Would definitely buy again."
For what you get, these lights are priced well. A customer commented, "Love these tropical pineapple lights! I have them around a mirror in my powder room and its just the right light! Nice quality at a great price!"
Only Five Feet of Actual Lighting
The description is correct when it says you will receive a 10 foot long string with 5 feet leading up to the first light. But for some reason people expected more than half a string of lights which only run 5 feet. So be aware that you will only have 5 feet of pineapple lighting. There were a lot of disappointed customers including this one, "Definitely not a true 10 feet of light. I believe the description is somewhat misleading needs to be edited for more transparency. Pineapples only take up about 5 feet of the string the other 5 feet leads to the battery pack."
Some Customers Report Lights Arrive Not Working
There were some complaints about the lights arriving not in working order. Here is one of those comments, "Two of the three strings we purchased did not work. The pineapples are adorable though and still made great decor for the party."
Battery Box Is Hard to Open
There were a lot of complaints about the battery box being hard to open. Here is one of those comments, "I love these! They are so cute. Definitely would recommend. My only concern is that the battery box was hard to open. There were also no directions when I got confused. I got it eventually, but other than that I love them!"
Good Customer Service
The customer service had good reports. Because the battery pack is so hard to open, some people had to contact customer service. Here is one of those comments, "These look nice BUT it was a PAIN to get the battery packs opened. Two of the plastic cases ended up breaking while trying to open them and we had to tape them together. UPDATED - The company's customer service team reached out to me and refunded the two strings. They were very helpful. The lights look very nice and hopefully they will work on making the cases easier to open for the batteries."
Popular for Tiki Bars
A common use for these pineapple lights are for use in a Tiki Bar. Here is one of those comments, "These LED Pineapple lights are the perfect addition to our Tiki Bar. Even with the Lights off, the Pineapples are bright & colorful adding the perfect Tropical touch! When they are on, “It’s Tiki Time!” Very Happy with these festive pineapples!"
