They came at the right time for this Christmas. We haven't installed an outside outlet yet to power up our house lights...These will definitely be handy. For now they are going on our front porch but,next year we plan to wrap them around our to mid size front yard trees.
They both work excellent. My best features are,the set timer,the different choices of twinkling,and waterproof battery case,and because they take batteries.
I really wanted a much more in length but,I think these will just fine for now.
