If you are a Christmas light traditionalist and like the style of the old C9 bulbs but don't like dealing with the hot, breakable and inefficient bulbs, this is a great choice. This warm white C9 LED has all the benefits of a traditional incandescent C9 set including the classic bulb style and the ability to remove, replace and interchange bulbs without all the problems which have plagued this bulb design. Unlike other LED versions of the classic C9, this C9 LED bulb covers a small wide angle lens that helps evenly diffuse the highly directional LED light so the bulb won't appear dull from certain angles.
The Color-Rite strands are full wave rectified by a capacitor in the plug which allows the different colored LEDs to be interchanged in line. These strands are very versatile and can be used for a wide variety of creative projects. Since the strands use a capacitor to regulate the power, they will not perform well in animated displays using a dimming sequence.
