Ok- go to brookstone.com and search for LED mini. The have 70 count led mini lights in warm white and multi for 5.99 per strand plus shipping and tax. I bought 20 strands of the warm white and tightwrapped the trunks of my tree in front of my house. I will be testing these for 12 months until next season, dusk to dawn, 8-13 hours per night. This would represent about 15 years of a Christmas season, or 6 hour burntime for 40 days, so I understand this is pretty much a torture test. also, tightwrapping is the toughest stress on mini's, as the tree will grow and pull at the contacts as the wire tightens. I'll try to chime in from time to time on this thread and let you know how these led's hold up. I am guessing some failure in month 6 or 7, but I am hoping they make it all year. I have had them up for a few days now, and I gotta tell you - they look like ultra bright mini's from a distance of 10 feet and more. I cannot see the vibration, and this is the first non-rectified ( ac to dc ) AC set I have used that I could not see the 60hz flicker. the color matches the 200 milliamp starbursts from Holiday bright lights that also are in the tree. It is whiter than the yellower 160-180 milliamp starbursts from Brite ideas. The concave lens truly gives a perfect spread from the led inside. the sets claim a 5 watt rating and claim you can plug in 40 sets end to end, I did 20 and it was fine. I did not do an amp test, I will do that tomorrow and let you know what it reads. i cannot imagine 120 volts going through 40 sets of these. they are aprox 25 feet long, and 20 sets is already 500 feet long. I may check the voltage up near the top of the tree tomorrow while I am at it.
