Twinkly (Generation II) Special Edition Smart RGB+W LED Icicle Light Set - 190 Lights

I have been watching for Price Drops on these since Christmas, This is the lowest Price I have seen from BestBuy yet. In fact I just purchased 4 sets 3 days ago at $89, Luckily I keep Checking so got the Price adjustment done this morning.

I bought 2 sets of the 250 Light Strings last year for my Christmas tree and love them, so looking forward to hanging these Icicle Lights outside next year.
This sale ends Jan 28th.

Note; The Twinkly Smart LED Light Set - 150 Lights are also on sale now until Jan 30th for $54.97, Discount of $65 for those interested. Sale ends on Jan 28th for these

Stay safe fellow RFD folks.

I wasn't going to bother with these although I'd love them outdoors. seems after some searching: Low temperature operating capability for outdoor use has been boosted on the Gen2 lights.
While still certified IP44 the second generation lights can be used in temperatures as low as 14°F which is only about -10º C .... meaning, may not be able to even operate during most of our Canadian winters.

still get an upvote OP

not sure where I'd even be able to use icicle lights indoors. any idea how long of a strand these are? I can only see 1150cm listed as width on one page. is it actually 38' long?

or found this off the twinkly site .. not sure how to decipher

distance between drops 10cm / 3,93 in
lead length 3,5m / 137,795 in
lighted length 5m * 0,6 m / 196,85 * 23,62 in

from a 3 start review: description is misleading. It says the light are 1150cm in length. Which is 37.72 feet. Spread the lights out and find the actual light part is only 16 feet long.

thank you. yup just found and edited my post while you were posting. lol

one other thing worth mentioning. these can't be daisy chained together like standard lights. as each strand ends you've got another wall wart, so you have to start at either ends of your eaves trough and hope they meet in the middle, or start in the middle and run an extension cord from the middle to an outlet. my front trough in two sections is a total of 47' - 48' (one section about 23' and the other about 25') .. I have one outdoor outlet close to the middle but 16' x 2 still won't get be to the ends of the trough. 3 would leave me needing an extension cord to an outlet have way across one section.

as an example.. we have 4 x 250 string lights on our tree. all ac plugs have to end at the same place, bottom and back of the tree, and each put into a wall wart eliminators, then each of those into a power bar which then goes to the AC outlet.

Anyone know if this set can show different levels of warm white? Or is it just one temperature of white?

We tend to like the traditional warm temp of the old style incandescent lights, but LEDs I've tried so far are much cooler than I'd prefer. Hoping I don't have to buy the gold version of these to get that
