Sparkling Hurricanes as Bedroom Light
By Michelle P
I love, love, love starry lights. In fact, I have 8 sets of them--3 of which, are these battery powered mini strands by Oak Leaf. If you haven't used these types of string lights before, pictures don't do them justice. The wire (whether copper or silver) looks beautiful, but it's also a terrific designing tool. You can create art by shaping the wire around branches in a planter, shelves, wreaths, canvas, or anything. Since we had a small house fire in August, I am paranoid about lighting any candles. Instead, I use these in the expensive hurricanes I "earned" by hosting parties. The ambiance it creates is just breathtaking.
The battery case may look huge, but a small battery would mean changing it constantly. I happen to love this battery case. It has latches, which I appreciate after having to open the sliding door cases. The timer is a fabulous function, especially for those who forget to turn off their lights.
I had actually bought 2 for me and 1 to make a gift with, but can't part with it. **sigh** I wish they'd run a special, like buy 3, get 1 free.
I received 1 of the 3 strands at a discounted cost, in exchange for my honest feedback and unbiased review.

Highly Satisfied, they're Beautiful fairy-like lights!
By Abigail K.
Please Note: I received a discounted product in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I was blown away by these little lights! They are super bright, I've had them lit and on a plant in my living room for several hours and they're still just as bright as when I first lit them. It takes 3 AA batteries (which are not included), but the lights are super tiny and just beautiful! I'm even using cheap dollar store batteries and they are super bright and don't seem to be taking up much battery power. They remind me of something that you would see in a fairytale garden. The lights are attached to a bendable, poseable wire so that you can shape them in any design or wind them and they'll stay in place. I want to order another set for my sister-in-law who loves them as well.
The attached picture is of the lights lit on my palm plant.

Affordable and nice
By rhonda w.
These are very nice little lights. I bought them for use on our patio, since we entertain frequently in the evening/night. Placed them into a large cut crystal bowl. They look so pretty. The only "con" about these is the battery pack is BLACK and very large, comparatively - probably 2.5"x3" or so, whereas the lights are the size of a sewing pin head. I have no idea how the base isn't showing in the other pictures. It's not a problem for me, since the bowl I'm using is not plain see-through glass, but just to cover it a bit more I folded the battery case into a piece of aluminum foil and it looks great. I don't think this trick would work if you were using plain glass, but you could cover it with marbles or sand or gravel.
