Tesco 100 Multi Function LED Christmas Lights (Coloured and Clear) ONLY £5 - FREE CLICK AND COLLECT!

Found 9th Dec 2015
Christmas lights are currently half price at Tesco so got some LED ones recently so thought I'd post about these

Rather than pay £4 for 100 Fairy Lights which are prone to blowing and being a pain, surely its worth paying an extra £1 for mains operated LED ones which are much more reliable. These also have 7 different modes such as flashing, chase, fading etc. You can also get 100 clear lights for the same price or a 50 LED set for £2.50. All included in the Clubcard Boost too! There are also 240 and 360 lights sets too.

Good price, Thanks

I can't see the word LED in the product description they look like normal 100 multi coloured lights

True: unless the online price is different, the microlights are £5 for 100 and the LEDs £7.50 for 120. 100/120 is too few for a six foot tree, they look pretty sparse spread over that.

Caution: (I agree with the previous posters warnings) the OP's posting do look like filament fairy bulbs, and they are designed NOT to be replaced when they blow. Looking at the Tesco site, the bulbs do outwardly look like LEDs, but closer inspection shows they have a filament. But for a fiver, so long as one is aware, not a bad price.

Does it mean that with a filament, the light is NOT actually LED. It's like my buying some kind of aluminium ceramic frying pan. It does not have the words aluminium tattooed on the pan. I think it is a con and I have not posted any feedback. Buying things online could be so dodgy! Thanks for the post.

These are the ones I bought they are utter s**t they hardly light up. The ones I bought were is a smallish cardboard box for 5.00. I would suggest investing in more expensive ones.

Hi, "aym280".
Specifically answering your query, "Does it mean that with a filament, the light is not an LED?". Yes, LEDS do not have a wire filament.
Looking at the OP's fairy lights on the Tesco site, it's impossible to be 100% certain that the bulbs are not LED. But there are two points to bear in mind: (i) as previous posters have noted, there is no mention of 'LED' in the Tesco description; (ii) to my eyes, the fairy lights do look like filament bulbs, and of the type that are designed NOT to be replaced when they blow. I hope that helps.

I bought some of these, they are coloured LED's. Look at the close up, you will see that these are non-removable LED. The old type of xmas lights have removable bulbs, but are now much less common than LED lights.

EDIT: Actually, they look like they may not be LED's as it says "Mircolights". The colours are painted on.

In the description links #2 and #4 are LED, £2.50 for 50 and £7.50 for 120. I bought a 50 and a 120, however, I just noticed the 50 is BATTERY OPERATED.

Microlights are filament bulbs, been mistaken by these in the past. They won't be very bright compared to LEDs.

Looks like the half price offer is on both the filament ones & the LED ones. Just bought the 50 LED ones, being battery operated they will be perfect for stringing up on a bike - and at only £2.50 I don't really care that they're not claiming to be waterproof

Neither will they last.

Good price. Just got a whole load of Xmas decorations from Tesco Direct and very happy with them all, especially with these coloured lights for £7.50 (used Clubcard vouchers so only cost £3.75 in vouchers):

How long do these battery LEDS tend to last? Would you end up changing batteries every day?

Main difference is that the LEDs are much brighter. Saying that, the micro lights aren't too bad but given the option, I'd go for the leds as they tend to last longer imho

indoor or outdoor?

EDIT - i mean can you use them outdoor as well?

I don't speak from experience but as far as I'm aware leds are very low power consumption so they should last a fair while...

I bought the Tesco 240 clear microlights the other day. They are not particularly bright but they look nice as I have quite a lot on my 6ft tree. It says on the packet that the bulbs are not replaceable but I believe my last set of microlights lasted at least 5 years. The only downside is that the multifunction settings aren't the best - I like them to twinkle but they don't appear to have that setting.

Total length 17.9m - 6m till first bulb. Warm white.

Can be used indoors or outdoors although adaptor must stay indoors. (possible not bright enough for outside?)

One has LEDs, one has "microlight" bulbs (it even shows as such in those links).
The LEDs will last "forever" (TM), and the microlights will last a slightly shorter forever.
You'll most likely lose them, step on them, or tear them apart when you can't untwist them before either set actually dies so longevity is probably not an issue (in my opinion). The LED set should be brighter and bigger if that's what you're after.

The micro light versions are dull as anything, I have a set of the coloured and they look okay in a dark environment but are washed out even if you have a small lamp on in the room. I used mine on a 3ft tree we had in the dining room but makes you think why they bother with tungsten based fairy lights now led is super cheap and king.
