Can Connect Strands Together
A big bonus with these lights is that you can connect them together. A customer explains, “I couldn’t decide between these and another set which had much larger bulbs (therefore giving off that old-fashioned literal “light bulb” vibe) but these are very pleasing even though they are much smaller than what I had envisioned…I wanted to be able to buy more strands that could “connect” to additional strands if needed (the larger glass ones did not give this option).”
When you are buying something as fragile as string lights, packaging becomes very important. The Lampat 25 Foot G40 Globe String Lights received good reviews for how well it was packaged. Here is one of those comments from a customer, “The other ones had a lot of reviews about them arriving broken. Well, I am clumsy, I need something more durable in my hands because with my luck, I’d surely break them while stringing them along, lol. Anyway, these are BRIGHT, which is very good indeed (now I don’t need to have the porch light on which always attracted moths and other bugs). I think I’ll buy another strand and connect them together, zig-zagging it for a canopy look, but for right now I’m going to enjoy them tonight while we have drinks and discuss how to light up the patio further with these wonderful whimsical lights for our outdoor Oasis in the Big City!”
Clip Placement Limits How You Can String Them
The way that the clips are placed limits the direction that you can string the lights. A customer explained, “The packaging was great, the bulbs all arrived in perfect condition. One thing that is kind of annoying is that due to the way the clips are on the backs of the lights, they can only be strung one way, in one direction, which limits what you can do with the plug ends. I had to get an extension cord because in order to string them right, the ‘male’ end was really far from the outlet.”
Good Customer Service
The Customer Service received positive reviews such as this one, “The product itself is great. The customer service reached out to me, to help resolve the issues, above and beyond any expectations I had, I did not reach out to them, they did this on their own. Excellent customer service and the lights do give a warm mellow tone, very relaxing tone to our backyard.”
Lights with glass are going to be fragile just because that’s the nature of glass that can break easily. However, these bulbs still received positive comments for being durable. Here is one of those comments, “I’ve purchased similar size lights and these are by far the best I’ve found in this size and style. In my experience the larger bulbs are extra sensitive and often barely tapping them against each other or the wall when hanging them will blow them; these lights are much more sturdy, all were still working by the time they were hung which felt like success compared to the last in this size that I purchased. They’re bright and look great, I’m so pleased with these. Great quality, especially for the reasonable price, highly recommended.”
Another customer who was in a hurricane testified to this incredible story, “These bulbs were on my favorite tree as permanent decor and looked beautiful. They braved the sun, humidity and rain day and night for 5 months. On 09/20/17, Hurricane Maria battered Puerto Rico along with my home and destroyed everything in its path with wind gusts reaching almost 180 mph! After the howling, destructive winds stopped, I was surprised to find my now felled tree with its beautiful lights still on as if nothing had happened! Thus I strongly recommend these hurricane-proof lights to anyone!”
Great Price for What You Get
For the quality of what you will be receiving, The Lampat 25 Foot G40 Globe String Lights are a great buy. A customer had this to say, “I’ve been shopping around for the perfect lights that are high quality, good reviews, long enough, and cheap in price. This is all that! I bought these for an upcoming wedding I am having in December. The theme is under the stars and the lights will be strung across the beams and alternated with white tulle. This lights are sturdy, and bright and beat having to buy a ton of Christmas lights. I’m so pleased with these that I ordered 4 more to cover the 5 beams in the place we are having the wedding.”
Not Much Length Between First Light and Plug
You may need an extension cord for these lights since there is not much cord length from the plug to the first bulb. A customer explained, “These lights add great ambiance to my outdoor deck at night. They’re not very bright, which allows them to basically act as accent lights, but collectively the entire string (or a couple of them) provide enough ambient light that it’s possible to see in the evening without turning on my glaring patio lights. My only complaint is that the plug is only about six inches from the first bulb, so no matter where you hang this string of lights you’ll probably see an extension cord running right up to the first bulb.”
Comes with Extra Bulb
It’s nice that these bulbs come with an extra, just in case one breaks when you put them up. A customer had this to say, “Previously tried using solar powered lights to hang along the edges of the patio for night hangouts, but they weren’t ever bright enough. Put these up and they definitely brighten the place up! I also had to hang these by myself as they clinked together and the strand fell a couple times but no bulbs broke so I’d say they are durable. Would definitely recommend especially since they come with an extra bulb.”
Great for Weddings
There were many comments about people using these for wedding decor and lighting. Here is just one of those comments, “Awesome lights. I’m hosting a small family wedding in my backyard and needed string lights for lighting in the evening. I ordered 6 because I was only lighting half of the yard but they look so great I decided to buy an additional quantity to be able to light up my entire yard. The lights give off a good amount of light. Would highly recommend and you can’t beat the price!”
