Great lights, but perhaps more suitable for advertising than ambiance:)
These are really cool little light strings that operate on 3 AA batteries. The remote came with a battery in it and seems to work well. The little lights twinkle and can be made fairly bright or dimmed. The remote also lets you cycle through 8 different patterns of light streaming. Although, since I plan to put these lights near a hot tub for ambiance, most of the flashing patterns are no good because they look like advertising signs flashing. I would have preferred more subtle choices.
Best string lights I've used
These are terrific. I have tried so many different 'string lights' and these are my favorite. They have a nice warm hue and the remote is a really nice feature to have on battery powered lights. I mounted one strand of these in our teardrop camper and velcro'd a remote on each side, so my wife and I both have our own controls. It's like having a 3-way switched light (but better because it's a removable remote). 5 Stars.
