Put Christmas LED Lights to good use all year round

February 17, 2010 § 2 Comments

Christmas Led Lights StringIsn’t it a little inefficient to use one expensive (or more) Christmas Led String only for a few weeks around the winter holidays? And then toss it somewhere in the balcony or a winter-dedicated storage? Not good. Not even environmentally friendly.

Because you can actually replace some ol’ incandescent or even fluorescent bulbs by placing it in a floor lamp or even in ordinary wall lamp. This great tip comes from inhabitat, posted by a reader of theirs named SleepySyrup:

A string of LED holiday lights, combined with a two-dollar socket adapter from your local home-improvement store, can transform a lamp or overhead light into an eco-friendly light source. A 50-bulb string uses less than 5 watts of electricity, and, this time of year, they can be had for a fraction of the price of a commercial LED bulb.

Here’s the solution in a collage of images found on the internet :

Christmas LED Light String + socket adapter + wall lamp = LED lighting all year round

Christmas LED Light String + socket adapter + wall lamp = LED lighting all year round

As they say: better reuse than buy new. Tell the world about your find:
