  1. Greetings, Our 2020 pre sale is live! It's a great time to buy lights at a great price. We also have a huge selection of lights ready to ship at pre sale prices! https://www.holiday-light-express.com/
  2. The thing to watch out for is surging. You're going to want to run your controllers at 80% output, if not, what can happen is that you surge the bulbs in some cases when turn them on and off quickly. When we see systems with large failures, 9/10 times, having them change to 80% output fixes the issue. Also, LED's are going to be max brightness at 80% anyway, so you don't lose any output to your eyes.
  3. We have some of the old style C7 and C9 bulbs (non-SMD) on clearance. https://www.environmentalled.com/Clearance--c29/
  4. Today is the last day for the sale!
  5. Just a couple weeks left to save! Sale ends Feb 28th!
  6. Are you worried about snow covering the lights? If you angle them you should be fine, but, if it's deep snow that might be a different story. But as far as snow hurting the lights, you should be fine. The floods we sell work fine in the rain and snow. https://www.holiday-light-express.com/RGBlights.php
  7. Well, looks like you are in Florida, which gets a lot of sun. Unfortunately, sun and plastic don't mix well. So if your lights are out in the direct sun, they are going to discolor faster than if they were not. UV rays eat plastic!
  8. Yes, but in full case quantities only, with the understanding that there are no warranty strands if something goes wrong. You would be better off using 50 count strands instead.
  9. Depends a little on the string, but generally 25-35% off regular price. For example, 100 count Red M5 is on sale for $12.95 and regular price is $17.99, so that one is about 28% off.
  10. The retros are the more expensive way to go. But, a C9 SMD will be significantly brighter than the ecosmart bulbs, so you do get what you pay for in this case.
  11. The opaque bulbs (we call them ceramic style) would be your best bet if you don't light the harshness of LED's. The opaque bulbs lens absorbs the light instead of reflecting it, as shown above. We have our pre sale going on now which has some pretty good pricing on C7 bulbs. https://www.holiday-light-express.com/C7_SMD_Ceramic_Bulbs.php
  12. I would buy the 12" spaced spool, then buy the bulb C9 sockets. Snap them on to give you 6" spacing. No need to buy a second spool. https://www.holiday-light-express.com/C9_stringers.php Pre sale is going now, so under $1 a bulb if you can buy in 25 packs. Gets under $0.80 if you buy in 500 packs.
  13. I dont stock them. But I can get them, you would just have to order in full case qualities. And I'd need to know ASAP. They are the same manufacturer than all our other bulbs, so the quality is real good. I'd say they look close to incandescent. Keep in mind, LED will never look the same, as it is a totally different light source.
  14. 1. Yes, we sell in-line SPT plugs so you can put a female plug in the middle of a section. https://www.holiday-light-express.com/SPT-1_Plugs.php 2. We have our pre-sale going on now, so it's the best time order lights.
