[Costco] Philips Battery-Operated Colour Changing Micro Lights (50CT, set of 8) - $14.97 +FS

Not completely sure of the original price, but other retailers have them for $30-50.

Plenty of stock and the usual Costco free shipping.

If one wants less than 8 , these are 8.97 / 4 pack in store. Seems like a seasonal price as I got mine last year.
To be or not to be...where is the question?

I had these last year and found they really sucked, so much so that I just threw them out after the winter. Might be a good use case for them but I didn't find one.

We got 8 sets of these last year, and they are really not bright at all. So this year, we basically are using 2 strings to light one small wreath (using double the lights you think you'd need for each job). Luckily we're on rechargeable batteries, because, while these last fairly long, it takes 16 batteries to keep 8 of these things going.

They are not garbage, but they're also not amazing, at least for us. If you've got lots of batteries, and don't mind turning on TONS of strings of lights every day.. knock yourself out :)

Had mine since 2020, and they're still working great. It's bright enough for my case. I have them indoor behind the windows.

The darker windows are due to the mesh window screen. Once removed, the brightness all matched.

Yes that is a fair assessment, I was most disappointed in how not bright they were. The battery life I could live with, they have a 8/16 timer mode too I think. I was excited about them and then so disappointed in the reality I think that coloured my impression.

I'm not going to argue about this, as I'm sure you are right, but I would point out that you just recommended me to buy 4 AA batteries for $33. The light strings only cost $5 each.
