GE 50 Mini Lights

0 comments

Overall Impression: Very bright and colorful mini lights

  • Nice: Fine traditional mini bulb set.
  • Naughty: Very skimpy wire with short distances between bulbs.

Marketed under the famous GE name and logo, these Chinese-made lights are made for Santa’s Best Craft LTD, in this case for Kmart stores. There are 50 standard incandescent miniature bulbs on the set. The bulbs are about three-quarters of an inch tall, and are red, green, blue, yellow, and purple.

The set comes with two replacement bulbs and two replacement fuses. Unfortunately, like some other GE/Kmart sets, there is insufficient wire for easy decorating: the bulbs are spaced at an incredibly tight 2.5 inch interval.  There is only a 3-inch lead-in. Lighted length is 10 feet. It has both an add-on and an end connector.

They have a 2 year limited guarantee, which is very unusual for Christmas lights.

The set is available from Kmart. We obtained the set for the very low price of $2.24 at Christmas 2009.
