Review of a garland on a hard copper wire powered by batteries from Aliexpress
The holidays are approaching, and many of us want to transform our homes into a festive atmosphere. There are many kinds of decorations, devices and toys for this, but I think one of the fastest and most effective ways to decorate any room is to install a garland. However, in many situations it is not possible to install a garland powered by 220 V, for this you can use a garland powered by batteries. It is about such a battery-powered model that will be discussed in this review.
- Light source: LEDs
- Number of LEDs: 10 to 100
- Glow color: white, multi-color, blue, warm white, purple
- Length: from 1 to 10m
- Power: 2 to 3 AA batteries
Packaging and equipment
I must say right away that I purchased this garland at a local store, but you can still order a similar product from China at a pretty nice price. Delivery, judging by the reviews, takes about 2 weeks. Otherwise, the equipment and all other characteristics are fully consistent with the garland that you see in this review. So, the garland comes in a regular box made of thin cardboard, there is only a small instruction in the kit, there are no batteries in the kit, but based on the price of the product, this is quite expected.
The garland consists of a box for batteries and, in fact, the LEDs themselves, placed on a solid two-wire wire. It is worth noting here that depending on the length of the garland you choose, the number of LEDs on it will differ. The LEDs are placed at a distance of 10 cm from each other, and when ordering, you can choose garlands with a length of 1 to 10 meters.
When ordering, you can also choose the color of the LEDs, in this case you see a garland with a warm white glow. To be honest, in real life, the glow looks more festive and creates a kind “lamp” atmosphere. I personally recommend garlands with warm white light, but when ordering, you can choose both a single color and a multi-color glow.
It is also worth noting that the LEDs on the garland are placed on a solid two-core copper wire, which is covered with a special waterproof insulation. The wire is really rigid, thanks to which the garland can be given any shape and easily fixed in the place you need.
The container for batteries is made of transparent plastic; there is a special toggle switch on the box body to turn the garland on and off. In my case, the device is powered by three AAA batteries, however, there are models that have a box for two batteries, it depends on the length of the garland you choose.
The use of this garland is limited only by your imagination, it can be used for its intended purpose: for installation on a Christmas tree, or for organizing any space in your home. Also, thanks to an autonomous power source, it can be used in a variety of New Year’s crafts. It should be noted that this type of garland is absolutely safe for children or animals, in case of damage to the wire there is no possibility of getting an electric shock, and further problems associated with it. However, in this regard, the manufacturer, in my opinion, did not modify the garland a bit. To increase safety, it would be nice to fix the cover of the battery tray with a regular screw, so that children would not be able to get the batteries out of it on their own. However, there is no such fixing screw on this garland.
In general, I am very pleased with the garland, it creates an excellent, festive glow and, despite its appearance, is quite durable. Based on the low price, I immediately purchased 5 garlands, and when unraveling one of them, I was able to make sure that it was really well made and, with proper use, could last for more than one year. Also, I would like to add to its pluses the moment with the use of voltage in the garland that is bladeless for humans and animals. On this, perhaps, everything, you can find more interesting reviews on my blog site. Thank you for reading the post to the end.
