This strand of lights is only one lighted meter long, with a fifty centimetre trail to lead to the battery pack. Because it is battery operated, you can easily place them just about anywhere you want to in your house. Many people place them around decorations, in hard to reach areas where you cannot easily string lights to an electrical outlet, or in floral arrangements. There are just a few ideas to help you get started. Although these lights are very easy to use, you will need to buy batteries separately. This particular string of lights requires two double a batteries to operate properly. Once batteries have been placed, you do not need to do anything else other than place them and turn them on! It doesnÃ¯Â¿Â½t get much simpler than that.
