Why are the Retrofit C9 Replacement bulbs larger than the 26 Light C9 set bulbs?

The Retrofit C9 LED Replacement bulbs have larger bases so that they can fit into the same E17 lamp holder sockets that are used for traditional Incandescent C9 light sets. Our Retrofit LED C9 Replacement bulbs use three Diodes to brightly illuminate these larger bulbs. The 26 Light C9 LED Light Set is constructed differently using much smaller lamp holders which only require one Diode to brightly illuminate the bulbs. The 26 Light C9 LED Light sets utilize a shorter more compact bulb to maximize the visual brightness emitted by the Diode and feature 8 inch bulb spacing. Traditional E17 socket light sets usually have 12 inch bulb spacing.  Click Here For Photo Comparison >>

Can I use your LED lights all year?
You can, but doing so will void the warranty . The Warranty is Only for 90 Day Seasonal use. Leaving light sets up all year exposes the wires to excessive UV rays from the sun which can cause degradation. In addition,removing light sets that have been left  inside growing trees and bushes all year can result in damage to the sets .

Can I connect standard incandescent Christmas lights together with your LED Christmas light sets ?
No! Do Not connect incandescent lights with LED lights.

Can I  connect LED light sets made by other companies  together with your EnergyRight LED light sets?
Yes. However, we do not recommend doing so. Using sets with different wattage can result in overloading circuit. It is important that you know the cumulative wattage of the sets being connected to avoid circuit overloads.

Why do Christmas lights have a warning label about lead?
All Christmas lights have trace amounts of lead in the PVC wire . The State of California requires that all Christmas light sets with trace amounts of lead exceeding 300ppm must be labeled with a warning for a presence of lead. It has been determined by California State's Scientific Advisory Board that continuous close exposure over an approximate 70 year time span could increase your risk of developing cancer.
We are proud to note that  our EnergyRight Christmas light sets are produced with Low Lead Wire.
The traces of lead in the light set wire does not exceed 300 ppm ,  meeting the requirements of the American Society For Testing And Materials ( ASTM F963-07 ). However, please be aware that these products are not intended for use by children . If children come in contact with these products, they should wash their hands as a precaution. Lead is considered dangerous to small children and their exposure should be kept to a minimum.

Why do you have both UL and CSA Logos noted on your Home Page?
Testing for the EnergyRight Retrofit Replacement bulbs is done by Underwriters Laboratories. Testing for the EnergyRight Light sets with 22 gauge wire and standard two pin plugs is done by Underwriters Laboratories. Testing for the EnergyRight Lights sets with heavy duty 20 gauge wire and coaxial plugs is done by CSA International. CSA International is accredited by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) as a nationally recognized testing laboratory.
