Premier Battery Powered LED Lights

At Christmas, if you've ever ended up arguing with another member of the family over who's going to have the last socket in the adapter, and lost out to your offspring's Xbox, you should consider battery powered lights.

In addition to not having a plug, they have many more advantages over traditional lighting and your creative zeal won't be restricted, since the range of battery lights is extensive and impressive.

Predictably Konstsmide and Premier are the shining stars in this firmament.

Konstsmide Light Sets & Candles

Konstsmide have light sets with up to 240 bright LEDs, multi-coloured or warm white, on clear or black cable. Most are suitable for both indoor and outside use and have a useful timer or dusk to dawn sensor.

There are also decorative LED indoor light sets in various shapes including silver beads, stars, metal balls and copper flowers, these can be placed around the house as vivid decorations.

For your windowsill or mantelpiece, Konstsmide have an attractive selection of candlesticks and individual candles made from solid wax. However, unlike real candles, the flame is a safe LED. 

Premier Lights & Memory Wire

Premier Time Lights can be used inside the house or in the garden and are operated with a timer. One set of batteries will last for over 30 days and there is a controller to select different effects. Choose from 50 lights to 200 multi-coloured lights using AA batteries.

Moving away from traditional string lights, a Memory Wire set is highly unusual, with a simple yet distinctively attractive string of 25 or 50 LEDs on a glistening length of silver wire. This looks spectacular if submerged and so is ideal for decorating flower vases and bowls.

Ornamental Decorations

To decorate the front door and porch, there's a Konstsmide wreath with warm white LEDs. Inside the home, charming models of Father Christmas with battery operated LEDs will certainly be children's favourites along with beautiful colour changing glass globes containing Christmas scenes.

Beautifully crafted Alpine scenes are also striking decorative ornaments for around the house, portraying a village or forest scene, they are perfect window displays.

Long lasting and rechargeable batteries have lots of advantages over mains power especially when running costs and ease of operation are considered. So it's no wonder that these innovative products are now so popular.
