LED Christmas lights are…
Long-Lasting and Durable
Compared to incandescent Christmas lights, LEDs are likely to last 10 times longer. One reason why they last so long is that they are much more durable. In fact, in one study, LED lights were found to last for 4,000 hours when fully lit! Comparing this to incandescents, the light string completely burned out in half the time. You may be wondering how this can be, but the fact of the matter is, LEDs have the ability to last much longer than incandescents because they don’t use filaments to as the bright light. Filaments can heat up and burn out, which brings us to our next point, LEDs are also safer. Safe, long-lasting and durable lights are something you want inside and outside of your home! Why?

Purchase your favorite styles and colors of LED lights before this holiday season and rest assured that your money has been well spend on safer, long-lasting and durable Christmas light stands.
