Using LED lights instead of old fashion incandescent lights is an essential part of keeping your tree fresh and fragrant. Regular incandescent ones are less than 5% efficient, meaning that 95% of the energy consumed is lost in heat – and heat is what dries out your otherwise fresh & fragrant REAL tree.
But not all LEDs are the same. Good quality ones will literally last a lifetime, while cheap ones are no better than the older incandescent ones. We recommend avoiding the inexpensive Big-Box Store ones, and going with the best from the following suppliers. If you pay a little more, you can rest easy that your tree will be safer and last longer as a result.
