~*~*~ Premier 6M Multi Action LED Rope Light ~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
This is a rope right that comes to you in a large rectangular cardboard box, inside you will find the rope light wrapped around a black plastic reel. On the end of the light you will find a long black cable leading to the plug, on this wire is a black box with a button to change the light mode.
~ Where to use them ~
These can be used indoors or outdoors. They can be wrapped around your tree, placed along your fence, around the windows or along the guttering of your house - how I use them.
~ Overall ~
What with Christmas fast approaching I thought now would be as good a time as any to add a nice Christmasy review.
I bought these lights a good few years ago and whilst they can be used indoors I choose to use them outdoors. I use them outdoors as they can give off a strong rubbery scent when on and this can fast fill your home with a not so nice aroma!
In my last home I had a large outside porch area, this was constructed of metal and had two posts coming down the front and a large roof bit. I always go a little OTT (over the top!) with my Christmas lights and I hang icicle lights from the guttering and then I used this rope light to wrap around the poles of my porch.
I bought in in clear, I am not overly fussed on multi coloured lights and I like all my lights to be matching so these of course were no different.
When I bought them in a local Christmas warehouse they had lots of different colours available, there was the clear/white, multi coloured, red, blue, green etc. They were selling at £9.99 a set or two for £15 so I bought two sets. Whilst there I also bought a large rope light star, a lantern and two santas but they are for other reviews!
These lights are constructed of a long, clear, strong, plastic, flexible tubing, inside the tubing is a string of LED lights, mine of course are clear. At the one end is a long black wire, on the end of said wire is a plug and inbetween is the controller box. The box and plug need to be plugged in indoors but the rest is safe to be outdoors.
You may think me a little crazy, I have already set my lights up outdoors. In my current home I don't have a porch like I did so these lights now travel around my kitchen extension roof, I bought little plastic clips in Wilko's last year and these clip onto the guttering and then there's another hole which you can clip the rope lights into. The plug and wire come through my kitchen window and then the black wire is traveling up the corner of my house and then the rope light is clipped around the guttering.
Even after four maybe five years of use these are still in perfect working order and each and every light still lights up.
On the controller box you have a little button and a list of eight different light features that you can choose from these are -
* In Waves
* Slow Fade
* Steady On
As you can see you can choose just how you want the light to perform, I usually choose Twinkle/Flash as I find this the twinkly most Christmasy effect. Slo-Glo is my least favourite, this one just fades in and out all the time.
I like these lights, I know other brands are available but these Premier ones have been perfect for me. The long 6M or 18ft length is excellent but they are also available in longer lengths too.
My Christmas lights go on early November - This weekend this year actually but I have tested them and they are still in perfect working order even the plastic tube is still in one secure piece. I am sure these will still be in use for a good few years yet, they have lasted much better than some of the hanging icicle lights I have bought previously and have had to replace.
I have been and still am very impressed with these lights. Every January I simply take them down and give them a quick wipe over before winding them back around the reel, popping them back in their box and placing them back in the attic until next time!
Thanks for reading :o) x
