RTGS 20 Micro LEDs String Lights Review

   We love playing with different types of lighting in my home. Most of the lights in our apartment are Hue Phillips LED wireless lights. They can be turned on and off with out cell phones, tablets, and computers. We can change how dim or bright we want them, set them to a timer, and even change the color of them whenever we feel like. I recently got the chance to test out some Rtgs 20 Micro LEDs String Lights in the color Blue. Since we love playing with our lighting so much, I jumped at the opportunity!


   The Rtgs Micro LED lights are perfect for party lighting, some accent lighting, or as a makeshift flashlight when you find that that batteries have died in your real flashlight. There are 20 bright lights, spaced out four inches apart, on each 7foot strand. The wire is so easy to manipulate, you can create any shape you wish, and they will fit almost anywhere. My boyfriend has a Parrot AR Drone Quadricopter that he plans to attach these lights too for some easy night flying. I am thinking about using them sewing them to a sweater for an Ugly Sweater christmas party!

   I like the idea of having a lot of light near my makeup mirror. These lights in white would be absolylty perfect for that. I did test it out with my blue lights, and while it looked cool, it wouldn't really be the perfect lighting for putting on makeup. I do think that they would look really neat in the pot of a house plant, behind a fish tank, or around your windows. Green and red lights could be combined for a beautiful Christmas wreath!

   The Rtgs 20 Micro LEDs String Lights is so simple to use. It takes 3 AA batteries (not included) in a clear battery pack. There is a large toggle switch clearly labeled On/Off. It is light weight, making it easily to hang. 

   These lights come with a 2 year warranty. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase, or the item breaks, simply contact RTGS by phone or email and they will work with you unitl you are satisfied.

    Features as listed on Amazon:
  • 20 Super Bright Blue Color LEDs Lights on 7 Ft Long Silver Ultra Thin Wire with 4 Inches Distance Between LED Bulbs and 12 Inches Clear Cable Between Wire and Battery Box. TOTAL STRING LENGHT OVER 7.5 FEET.
  • Lights Have Over 20 Years of Life Span and Use Fraction of Energy Needed by Regular Light Strings. They are also much brighter than Starry Lights or Fairy Lights.
  • Ultra Thin, Bendable but Sturdy Wire with LED Lights is Totally Submersible but NOT BATTERY BOX!!!
  • Newest Clear and Small Battery Box That is Easy to Hide Requires 3 AA Batteries (Not Included)
  • Over 48 Hours Non Stop Operating Time and Much Longer When Used with Breaks

What I like about the product:
  • Very bright blue light
  • Bendable, takes any shape you need
  • Lightweight, fits almost anywhere
  • Ships quickly
Dislikes or Suggestions:
  • I would love to be able to change the color or intensity of the lights.
  • This seems to be for indoor use only, it would be great if created for indoor and outdoor use. These could be a great camping accessory. I do think the battery pack would have to be remade to accommodate this, as there are some holes in it that dirt or rain could get in.
   Overall, I am pleased with these lights. They are simple to use, as a light like this should be. There are so many uses for them, really the only limit is your imagination. These lights can be purchased on Amazon for $6.25, free 2 day shipping if you have amazon prime!

  1. Wow! I would have never thought LED lights would be so wonderful! We use them outside for Halloween lights, and in the flower shop on our Christmas tree, but I had never thought of using them the way you do!

  11. Those are really neat! My daughter has exposed rafters in her finished attic bedroom & I'd love to line them in these lights. Especially since the bulbs are so small.

  12. The lights do look pretty cool around the make-up mirror, but I agree with you that it wouldn't be the best idea when actually applying make-up. I might have to order something this around the holidays. :-)

  32. I have a friend who loves these kinds of battery powered string lights. They are perfect for setting up vendor booths/tables when you don't have accessibility to a traditional power source. They just make the set up pop!
