Christmas LED lights dilemma: one bulb fails, the whole string is useless
I'd like to use the same technology for our Christmas lights:
* energy efficiency
* long life
* low or no heat, so safe to use.
BUT there's one big problem: the strings of lights are wired in series. So if one is dead, the whole string is useless. You have to go through the whole string, testing one bulb at a time, to find the problem. And if two are dead, then you're really facing a problem!
A company called "Forever LED" has solved this with their Christmas lights wired in parallel (www.ForeverLED.com). But they're expensive, especially when you add on the shipping cost from the USA.
* Anyone know a source for Forever LED lights in Canada? (aside from Amazon, eBay)
* Any other company making a similar product, available in Canadian stores?
