I really like and bought this set of lights for a specific purpose. I have two obelesk planters by my front door containing vines. I have wrapped the lights around each planter and it looks so amazing as you walk up to the door. The fact that it is battery operated is a real blessing. It allows me to have the nice lights without the unsightly cord that I would have to plug in, The lights are very bright and are multi-colored, making them even more interesting. The battery case is waterproof and it even comes with a remote control, which you can choose to use or not. I am so happy with these lights and glad I got them.
