Q: What size fuse is needed. Mine keep shooting the fuse

submitted by Pam - 4 years ago
  • A: The fuse that is uses is stamped SEB 5A 125V and can be found at most home improvement stores, auto parts stores, etc. A 5-pack is usually around $5 - $7. Moving the lights when they are plugged in seems to blow fuses. Unplug them first or shut off the light switch before moving the string of lights.

Q: Hi, are these fitted to use for outdoor in the rain? Would love to hang them on my balcony but it's been raining a lot lately!

submitted by Cindy - 4 years ago
  • A: They are definitely better for indoors. I have had mine outdoors for a week. It rained once and 3 have gone out. Also while setting up, one completely broke by barely hitting the railing.

len - 21 days ago, Verified purchaser
Perfect warm light I was looking for but they get soooo hot not safe for my kids room. Also the glass is very thin, 3 of them broke while I was putting them up. They didn't just brake they explode and that thin glass gets everywhere, not safe!

Like others have said, the lights themselves are really pretty. They shine bright enough to light a room but not too bright, perfect for cozy gatherings, and I love the style!! I never bring them outside but it doesn’t seem to matter - these things are sensitive. I’ve tried so many of them for almost 2 years now. 3 separate sets. 10 total boxes I’d imagine. Sad to say these things do not last! The fuses will blow all the time. I’ve had a bulb explode for no reason - was it static? Did it fall too hard? It was on my bed, I don’t know what could’ve happened. If you move it too fast or the bulbs hit the wall (even gently) they will shine super bright and then blow out. All of the ropes I’ve used have had at least 50% of the bulbs blow out within 6 months. I literally set them up once and plug + unplug once a day. Connecting multiple does not seem to be a wise choice, nor is connecting it to an outlet extension, so keep a bare outlet in mind for these. I really really want to like them. I love the color and the soft glow, but I hate to see these in my garbage can every few months. They need improved quality. If you need something for a few months and don’t care if a few burn out, by all means!

These lights exploded on me twice! I plugged them in and 1 of the bulbs literally exploded and glad for everywhere. I should’ve returned them then but held onto them. I tried them again and I should’ve learned my lesson because it exploded again. Unfortunately it’s too late to return but these things are rather hazardous and I don’t recommend them.

Glass Bulbs

Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
CS Mendez - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Be careful with the glass bulbs, they easily shatter and some were quite difficult to screw into their sockets. They function perfectly, but would definitely prefer a safer bulb with having pets and kids around our home. Aside from that they are a great deal, we use them on our porch with smart plugs.

MF - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
These lights are terrible. We have purchased 3 sets of these lights and all 3 have given us trouble. They blow fuses constantly. Connect more than 2 together, blown fuse. Use an extension cord of any kind, blown fuse. We were hanging up the one set of them we did not return, and a small section of the cord fell and gently tapped the wall. Blew a fuse. Seeing as how many of the reviews are postive, my assumption would be that the quality control is very sub-par. Buyer beware. There are much better lights out there. Dont let the low price fool you; you get what you pay for.

Do not buy these! They look beautiful, but they immediately blow a fuse. I tried three times. Each bulb you have to screw in so it’s a lot of set up and effort for them never to work.

GardenstateMomma - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
I got these on clearance at end of season & put them on my covered porch. At first they were super bright but the intensity seems to have faded a little over the past several weeks although they are still very bright… just not as bright as at first. A couple lightbulbs didn’t work from the get go. They say for indoor outdoor use so we’ll see how they hold up over the winter. Not bad for a clearance price. I’m just glad I didn’t pay full price.

Dana - 4 months ago
aesthetically pleasing but not functional. Bought one set of lights, they burned out within 1 minute. I wish that was an exaggeration. Checked the fuse, it was fine. One of the bulbs had gone out. They don’t give you any spare bulbs. Returned that set and bought a second set only for the same exact thing to happen. Waste of time and money. This was all exceptionally annoying especially having to screw in all the bulbs by hand.

The plug melted!!!! I bought two strands. After the plug melted on the first one, I thought it was a fluke, so I bought a second strand. That one did the same thing! It looks like the fuse heats up so much it melts the plug that it’s housed in.

i bought this for my dorm that has no overhead lighting, and they were great for the first week or two until the lights kept burning out, and then it gave out today and completely stopped working. And considering that my roommate got the same lights and they did the same thing but broke within a week or two, i’m lucky in comparison. these things suck, don’t waste your money (especially if you’re a broke college student like me)
