You aren't looking very hard. There are plenty of the "old fashion" lights
out there. Wally World has most display space for conventional light sets
than the LED sets.
I agree they lack the brightness of the incadencent although I have some
white led strings which come quite close. (The most "normal" looking ones
have bulbs that look like the mini incadescent strings. The LED is a "hot
spot" that looks a lot like the filament of an old style bulb. The more
diffusion around the LED the less "conventional" it looks.)
But, hey, just use twice as many strings. In the medium run you save two
ways: 1) you still save a LOT of power; and 2) the individual bulbs
almost NEVER burn out. To me, the long life is the "tipping point."
One thing I don't like about the LEDs is that they are only "on" for about
30% of the power cycle.
Basically, they "flash" 60 times each second.
That's way too fast you notice unless your eyes are "scanning" the lights.
Then it's quite easy to see that would be a "light streak" with the old
style lamps become a light of "light dots."
I just saw this post. Where are you located? I have seen them at
stores around here. I'm pretty sure I saw them at Lowes. I know I
saw them at Target.
I have a bunch of incandescent sets that I never used (C7 and C9). I
We have a number of really tasteful Christmas light displays, in the
neighborhood and in the little town across the river.
There are not too many of the tradtional lights around but they manged
to find some. health and energy kept ours to just lights in the windows
Hope you found what you were looking for.
how do you get those stubborn reindeer hoof divots out of the lawn?
