  15. thanks for the reply and I never worried about the bulbs but guess will try to from now own. not hard to label bags just never knew. Yeah I have pluged whatever in before and pretty sure no issues at all. I run a MR Christmas and know Not suppose to plug in more then 3 strands per channel and i always make sure i dont over do on that don't want to let the magic smoke out of the box.
  16. I just read these things on a website is this all true? 1. Do not connect cords of different numbers of lights. This is the most common mistake people make with Christmas lights. Never connect a 100 light set to a 50 light set. If you do, the 50 light set will burn out prematurely. The same goes for any other combination. I just got done fixing 4 sets of lights that only half each worked but just wondered am i killing my lights? . Do not connect lighted tree toppers or novelty light sets into other end to end plugs. Following the mixing of lights rule, you cannot connect a lighted tree topper or novelty light set (usually containing 10-30 lights) to other sets of end to end lights and not expect premature burnout. Use a dedicated plug outlet and an extension cord to accommodate tree toppers and novelty lights. 6. Use replacement bulbs of the correct voltage and type. Replacement bulbs are not all the same. They may vary in voltage and bulb type. For example, you cannot replace a 35 light set bulb with a 50 light set bulb because a 35 light set uses a 3.5 volt bulb while a 50 light set uses a 2.5 volt bulb. You also cannot, for instance, replace a Perm-O-Snap bulb with a standard twist-proof bulb. and bulbs thought they were all the same however most of my lights are 100 count ones
  17. Im thinkig about putting a tiny hole in the lid and using wire and just hang them from my tree. I thought about paiting some orange with white faces maybe. Or putting them on a pole and puting the lights in em putting vertical.... few options for this. Sent from my ZTE-Z990G using Tapatalk 2
  18. No LED lights all old style.. I guess will find out. might have to pull off driffrent outlets around the house.
  19. I am in a new location this yr. The electical box says its only 100amps. There is a outlet on the front of the house i plan to run my mr christmas box off that along with any static lights will it run everything okay?
