Nice, soft AND bright!
These LED lights are super bright BUT the light emits a softer tone than the glare if a "bluer" LED. Love these. Bought several to compliment an artisinal, delicate patterned set of 12" lanterns. Light is oerfect size fir 12" shade. Easy mounting.

ProsBright enough. Last long time
ConsYou need to buy AAA batteries and install them but you know what to expect.

Makes a difference
These lights inside the paper lanterns makes the biggest difference. They are worth the $.

Very white, beautiful in star lanterns
I ordered these to go inside the star shaped paper lanterns. They were easy to hang inside the lanterns and the price was great! If you are wanting a more yellow, warmer light, don't get these. They made the gold design in the lantern pop! Loved them.
ProsGreat price, arrived quickly, easy to use.

Weird green color
Great idea, LED battery operated for individual lantern but the light casts a very weird green color. I bought one to check out and will not be using it.

Don't turn off once batteries are in
We like the effect these lights give the lanterns but when I try to switch it to "off" it doesn't turn off. Once the batteries are in they just stay on until you take them out. We got these for our wedding reception and are hoping the issue won't be too much of a problem for the set up crew. Overall, we like them though

Very Nice Lighting Option
These look and work great with one exception. One of the lights I received does not have a working on/off switch. As soon as I load batteries, it turns on and stays on. Out of 22 lights ordered, I don't think that is too bad .

Exactly what we were looking for
We needed lights for paper lanterns that were a warm glow, not the white-blue light of most LEDs. These did the trick.
ProsGreat, warm light.
ConsIf you need a lot of lights, you'll need a lot of batteries. Figure that into your overall cost.

Warm Glow
I love how these hanging LED lights has a clip that attaches to the metal rod on top of the lanterns along with an elastic string to hang the lanterns at any length you want. You can wrap it around the clip to secure it more on the metal rod of the lanterns and adjust it to any length you prefer. Getting the batteries in the unit is easy and the on/off switch is conveniently on the top of the clip which has easy access to. The light has a wonderful golden glow to it and I used beige colored lanterns and it did have a tint of yellow although that's the look I wanted. So if you wanted the true color of the lanterns I would suggest the white LED hanging lights. This is an amazing product to use for the lanterns and it's definitely worth the money and you will not be disappointed.
Proseasy to attach to lanterns, elastic string to secure and lengthen to your desire height, battery access easy and on/off switch convenient to use

Long lasting glow!
While I find the warm white a bit too yellow, I am impressed with how long they run on three ordinary AAA batteries. After about 8 hours they dimmed about 50%, but still a 25% glow at 18+hours! I always test my lights before using on an event, and happy I can be confident these will keep their brightness throughout a reception. Just wish that light were closer to true warm white.
Proseasy to use, cord may be used to secure to lantern and to hang lantern, low power usage means long-lasting glow
ConsPackaging could be more environmentally friendly, I purchased 32 of these and was astounded at how much non-recycleable plastic I had to throw out. How about just a box? The light output is a bit too yellow.

Best Product EVER!!!
We ordered these for our wedding and wedding reception party lanterns. They are affordable for the big amount we needed, easy to assemble to the lanterns and they were bright and just lite up our 1300 foot balcony perfectly!!! They have a long burn life, after burning them for 2 nights at a total of over 16 hrs, we got them home to remove the batteries and they were ALL still working and had the same brightness that we had when we first used them. I am excited because I can continue to use them for future parties just add the batteries.
ProsThey are bright, easy to use.
ConsFor the amount we purchased along came the amount of batteries we had to purchase. BUT, well worth it.

LED battery hanging lights
The hanging battery terminal lights for the paper lanters were great. Very bright and they lasted all evening. Turned them on at 5:30pm and were still going at midnight.

Great option for lighting paper lanterns at night!
I bought three of these lights for three lanterns I bought for a party and was very happy with them. They lit up the lanterns perfectly and I wasn't worried about them catching fire since these LEDs do not emit heat. I do wish that they were a little easier to attach to the lanterns I bought (they didn't seem like they were designed to work together) but I made it work. Additionally, they take 3 AAA batteries, which I just happened to have on hand. The package says they will last for about 8 hours but they lasted a good 10 hours for me which was a plus! Overall, I think these light terminals are a great option for hanging lanterns for parties! Just make sure to flick the ON switch when you hang them, especially if you hang them high up or else you will be struggling to turn them on in the dark!

SOOOOO worth the extra cost!!!
I purchased a few dozen irregular ribbed round paper lanterns in three different colors and three different sizes (12"/16"/20") and hung them in groupings of 3 from several trees in our large back yard for a outdoor party. I was reluctant to purchase the 16 LED hanging lights because of the relatively high cost but did anyway....and WOW, just WOW!!!! The affect was nothing short of magical AND they softly (and effectively) lit the entire back yard. They were very easy to install/use and they were still burning strong the next morning (12 hours later). I am STILL getting compliments about these lanterns from the party attendees!!
ProsEvery aspect!

Amazing Lighting
We hung 60 lanterns of various sizes and used this battery powered lighting (which had been recommended by a Paper Lantern customer service representative). They stayed lit well beyond the 8 hours (we purchased good quality batteries). But the glow and lighting is magical. We have saved both the lanterns and hanging lights for another party when my son's wedding will be celebrated again near home.

Incredible battery life and brightness!
These light were not very visible when we turned them on, but once darkness fell, they were perfectly lit over an outdoor dance floor. I WILL be ordering more for our next party and more lanterns for sure. Loved these lights. Be sure to remove batteries if storing these to prevent battery leakage.
ProsLong battery life Good amount of light output.
ConsNeeds a shorter hanging string to properly light the lanterns. Had to tie a knot in it.

Bright, but green.
This light has plenty of power, but the warm light ends up coming out with green tones. Not exactly the tone we were looking for in our room.

Wow, nice light
These are quite bright and work well with my 20" and larger lanterns. Wish I had known about them earlier and I would have purchased more. Love that they use batteries so no cords anywhere! Can't attest to how long they stay lighted because the wedding date isn't for another 2 weeks, but they illuminate nicely.
ProsNice soft lighting with no hanging restrictions since there are no electrical cords to fuss with.
ConsWe are hoping for 8 hours of solid illumination. We won't know until after the wedding.

Bright light!
We tried this light with 24" & 36" lanterns. It was very bright and illuminated the lanterns beautifully.
ProsBright! Used in an easy-to-reach area, this light would be fine.
ConsHave to turn off & on individually. As we'll be using them at the top of a high tent, many of these lights would be too tedious to turn of & off. Stark white. We prefer the warm white.

Highly recommend
Purchased 40 of these lights to use with 12" white paper lanterns for our wedding. Lights were very bright and could be seen even during daylight hours. They created a nice ambiance into the evening. Lights were turned on 3pm and remained a strong glow through the night for at least 12 hours. they even continued to run into the next morning slightly dimmer but we were totally surprised that they were still working. The owners of the wedding venue were so impressed with these lights they offered to buy them from us.

Can not use this product
I wanted a regular hanging cord kit but they were out of stock. I then settled for a white LED battery terminal. 3 days later I received an email saying that was out of stock too. I ended up with a warm white LED battery terminal. It is a waste of money. It has an on/off switch on the device. If you want to use this inside a lantern you must unite and open the lantern each time you want to turn the light on or off. Also, the size of the LED does not fit well in the star lantern.I ended up buying a cord kit from another company.
ConsNot usable with lantern

Great Light but Difficult to Open
I got 2 of these and they were very bright and great for the event that we needed them for. But... it was VERY difficult to open the battery pack, which is screwed shut with a very tiny screw. Once I found a small screw driver I noticed that the screw on one of the lights was stripped and really hard to open. Also we got 16" lanterns... I'd say the light was excessive for that size of lantern, but the light would be great for a really big lantern like 20"+
ProsVery bright!
ConsDifficult to open battery compartment.

Great lighting!
I recently purchased 45 of these warm white LEDs for my wedding lanterns. They give off the perfect amount of light and added such a warmth to the outdoor venue. I recommend trying all of them out with their batteries first because one of them stayed in the ON position even when switching to OFF. I called customer service and they sent me a new one that same week!
ProsGreat warm lighting

Bright lights and easy to hang
These lights were perfect with the paper lanterns I ordered. They fit perfectly onto the wire in the lanterns and illuminate very nicely. These lights lasted for the few hours I used them and I know will last an entire day if I needed them too. They are small, which is perfect for storing and just run on batteries which is convenient. I want to have another event to be able to use them and the lanterns. I highly recommend these LED terminals.

The color is nice, not too yellow like the lights look like in the picture. The brightness is perfect for me. I am using these more for decoration and not to light up the room. I am putting them in chandeliers I am making for my wedding. I had a issue with one of the lights where the screw would not come off the battery compartment. They shipped a new one right away. Very happy with the customer service. This is a great company to purchase from.
