DC powered light strings feature a battery box and string of 10-20 mini or 5mm lights. Lights are operated with an on/off switch, and some control boxes include timers and/or twinkle options. Most incandescent battery lights are powered using C or D batteries and last 8-12 hours on average. For longer lasting battery life, consider LED battery lights, which use smaller batteries but often can last for the entire holiday season.When are battery operated lights best?
Battery powered lights are ideal in crafts, used in hanging greenery above mantels, and in weddings and productions. Never worry about plugs or visible cords. Available in clear minis and multicolor with either green or white wire, battery operated mini lights are perfect for decorators.
