[Costco] Costco LED Christmas Lights Blue or Red

Costco has LED Outdooor Christmas lights in Blue 3 pack 35 lights in each for a total of 105 lights for $16.78.

They also have a 2 pack of red outdoor LED lights with 70 lights total for $9 or $11.

These lights are not the mini size nor the large size, medium size I guess hope this helps.

The price is good compared to most big box stores.

Are the lights blue, or is the packaging blue? What colors are available? How long is the string of 35 lights?

Can you chain all 3 of them together i.e. only one set needs to be plugged into the power?

The light blue LEDs (I think they are called Luna Blue LEDs) are pretty cool but I don't know where to find them.

I've been on the "hunt" two Christmases for the light blue ones. I'm not a big fan of the dark blue ones or the pure white ones. Any pointers for the Montreal area?

Picked up 5 sets from the HD coupon a couple of weeks back, and was reading on the side of the box that you can daisy chain something like 125 sets together! Crazy. :cheesygri

Think I might grab some of these - nearly got some at RCSS at the weekend with no tax, but they were something like 70 for $20.

This may be a stupid question, but I've never put any lights outside before..... I have outdoor power outlets and outdoor power cords, do I need to take any precautions to protect them from rain/snow etc? Electricity and water don't usually mix well.....

Just make sure that both the outlet and the extension cables that you use are the 3 prong plugs. The lights won't be, but the cables should. As long as the lights are rated for outdoor use, you're fine.

I am not sure why you would say that. These are extremely low draw LED lights. The need for a cord with a ground is what exactly? I have several outdoor extension cords without the ground, they are just rated for outdoor use because they are waterproof and are specifically marketed for outdoor Xmas lights. There is no reason to use grounded plugs with these and I do not understand your logic.

or will they function even if one or two bulbs are out?

You're fine. As long as they are rated for outdoor use, it's fine. Since you're not plugging in a 3 prong plug, it won't matter.

LEDs have very, very low voltage.
