Great at first, dimmed significantly over short time
I received three of these hanging lights for the lanterns I ordered, and I was very pleased with them at first. It was kind of annoying to have to turn them off and on individually whenever I wanted to use them, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. They shone just about as bright as I'd expected and gave my room a really nice ambience. I only used them for about 45 minutes, two different times. The third time I used them, I fell asleep. They were on for about 2 hours. When I woke up, they'd gone out. I didn't think the batteries were already dead, as they were brand new, but I made myself a note to test new batteries in them. A few days later as I was about to change their batteries, I tried them again just for funsies, and they turned on. But they're not half as bright as before. They barely shine at all. I'll try them again with new batteries, but if battery isn't the issue, then these lights just dim very quickly.

Perfect for Parties!
I decorated a very large and dark indoor venue with 8 sets of bistro lights and 48 paper lanterns. These battery packs work well for small and medium-sized lanterns. They produce a warm yellow glow and, with enough lanterns, will cast a romantic glow across your room.
ProsEasy to use and install

It's ok
I bought this one because it was the cheapest and seemed like the most reliable for the price from the reviews. I wish batteries would have come with it and it remote. Overall it was what I expected in labor of turning them on and off by going up and down a ladder. My only disappointment was that they were not brighter.
ProsCheap and with good batteries last for hours
ConsNo remote and not bright enough

Amazing Product
At first, I was hesitant to order this product. Simply, because I didn't know it existed. I am so grateful I did order it. It is simply an amazing product. It allows you to light your paper lanterns without worrying about a fire! Easily fits into any paper lantern without any difficulties whatsoever. My only regret is I did not buy the remote control model.
ProsPrevents fires Extreme ease of use Provides of lighting automatically
ConsI wish I had bought the remote control model for even easier use.

Buy these!
These are perfect! I bought 40 12" paper lanterns for a party and tested several different lights in them before deciding on these. The LED lights are too blue and artificial looking and the LED "soft white" balloon/lantern lights looked good for 5 minutes then dimmed to barely visible. For the money, these are the best! Stayed lit and bright for 7.5 hrs before I turned them off. Shipping was great. None broken. And out of 45 (I got a few extra just in case) only one didn't work! And at this price it's not a big deal to lose 1 or 2! Buy these!

I haven't used these at my party just yet, but they've arrived and I've added batteries and all 12 units that arrived worked! I can see how some other reviewers complained that they had some broken units deliver, since there wasn't a lot of padding in the box. I was worried about damage and actually ordered 2 extra units just in case since they are so cheap. They are cheaply made but will fit the bill! :-)
Prosthey work :-)
Conscheaply made but this is expected at the price

easy, did the job
All the lights worked when they came and stayed lit the whole evening. Easy to install. We used the 16" lanterns and the light was perfect for ambient lighting (which is what we wanted), but would not have worked for main lighting (they weren't bright enough for that, but we didn't expect a small light like that to be super bright in larger size lanterns). We used white and turquoise lanterns and the light kept the colors true. Would definitely use again.

they'll do... mostly
I bought ten of these to put in the 16" white paper lanterns. 1 (out of 10) had a busted light bulb. No one within a 15 mile radius of where I am has this particular bulb. It's definitely not a standard size. But I did not have time get a replacement. The light emitted from these is a soft yellow. It makes for pretty good mood lighting. It would not do so well for actual lighting. Like I said, I had 10 of these up and that would not have lit anything really. It's just good accent lighting.

I ordered 8 of these to use in the paper lanterns I purchased and 3 of the 8 arrived broken. 2 had broken bulbs and 1 had a broken switch so I was unable to turn it on. I would never order these again... at least from this website because they were very poorly packaged!

Hanging Battery Terminal For Lanterns
My order arrived on time, and all items worked properly. I have purchased here before, and would again.
ProsLights are easy to install, and the light is soft, and makes for a nice atmosphere. Very affordable lighting option for the paper lanterns I have on my deck.

Perfect Compliment to Lanterns
These lights are the ONLY lights I have tried that give off a warm, natural glow as opposed to the harsh blue light of most LEDs. And I have tried a ton of them. The price is also extremely reasonable. Even does well in my 18" lanterns. Definitely would recommend .
ProsWarm, natural light Affordable

Great idea to light paper lanterns
I can't believe I hadn't found these sooner. They were a great option for lighting the trees in my backyard for a special event. They fit perfectly with several different sizes of paper lanterns ( we had 8", 9.5" and 18 inch lanterns). Would definitely purchase this again!

Exactly what I wanted
I loved the lights. They actually fit perfectly in the 8" and the 12" lanterns and they looked great. They were easy to use and they lasted more than 5 hours. One of them arrived with a battery terminal that was backwards, so we had to take it out and fix it...but that really wasn't a problem.

LED lights for use in 16" lanterns
I purchased 60 of these lights to use in the 16" lime green paper lanterns. They put out enough light to provide a soft glow--they may not provide enough light to be the only light source for an evening event, but they will look lovely hanging from trees and trellises at my spring wedding reception with some supplementary light so the guests can see what they are eating. These lights will put out their full light for about 9 hours per set of batteries (I used Duracell), so they're great for long evening events. I tested all of the lights when they arrived and two were defective, but the customer service for this site was excellent in providing replacement lights without any fuss at all--I would definitely recommend this product and this site to my friends.

Easy to hang!
We ordered 3 different battery-powered lighting options for our family 2014 wedding. This one wasn't bright enough for the 20" and bigger lanterns, but would probably be perfect for smaller ones.
Proseasy to hang
ConsThe battery door of the one we received was extremely difficult to open--it may have been defective.

good for party events
they are a convenient choice to reduce the amount of cable use and reduce the amount of electrical power used, they are mostly for a one time use only (two if you are lucky). have on/off button which is pretty cool.

Worked great for an outdoor wedding reception
I purchased 15 of these to go inside of red 12" and white 14" lanterns and they worked really well. They gave off the perfect amount of light. I also used twinkle lights above the dance floor and it was beautiful. I would just make sure to use new, non-rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries don't give off enough light.

I purchased 20 of these to put into the paper lanterns that I also bought from here for use as decor for my wedding. Because my wedding is outdoors, I needed lighting that did not require cords and these were by far the most inexpensive options. I was afraid that they would not put off enough light, but I was surprised by how much light there was. Just perfect for setting a romantic feel!
