While decorating with Christmas lights can be fun, the limitations caused by a far-away power outlet can be a hassle. Instead of getting tangled up in clunky extension cords, switch out some of your plug-in string lights with battery-operated Christmas lights. With the installation of a few batteries and the flip of a switch, these handy lights will allow you to add festive illumination to areas in your home without a power source. Here at 1000Bulbs.com, we have a great selection of indoor and outdoor battery-operated Christmas lights that give you the freedom to decorate without worrying about the location of the nearest outlet.

InvisiLite LED Light Strings

One of the best things about battery-powered light strings is that they allow you to isolate your decorating to smaller projects and areas of the home. Powered by only a discrete battery pack, indoor/outdoor wide angle mini LEDs are perfect for decorating wreaths, centerpieces, and fireplace mantles. For wiring that is a little less noticeable, these InvisiLite LED lights feature 360-degree illumination embedded in flexible, ultra-thin wiring. Cool to the touch, LED string lights work well against synthetic fabrics and greenery.

LED Mini String Lights

In case you didn’t already know, LED light bulbs have been proven to consume far less energy than standard incandescent bulbs, including Christmas lights. Battery-powered LED string lights consume less battery power and have a much longer life than traditional incandescent Christmas lights. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, it can cost you up to twice as much to run incandescent mini lights as it would to run LED mini lights 12 hours a day for 40 days. Not only are LED lights safer due to their cooler temperature, but they are made from sturdy, epoxy lenses instead of glass, making them much more resistant to breakage.

Outdoor Christmas lighting can be even more of an inconvenience when it comes to finding a power source. Featuring a built-in controller, these outdoor battery-operated LED path markers will provide a safe and brightly-lit pathway for you and your guests. Sold in a set of five, the path markers automatically cycle through light-show functions and change colors as they fade, chase, or twinkle. For a glimpse at how these path markers work, click here.
