LED X-mas lights

I put up some LED string lights on my house tonight.

I tested the old incandecents and then the LEDs with my Killawatt.

I still have to put up more LEDs, they only reached about half-way across the side of the house I light.

Ready for the Killawatt readings?

Traditional lights = 424 watts
LED lights = 5 watts (Make that 10 when I put that many more up!)

There you have it. LEDs are WAY more efficient for your holiday lighting needs!

400+ watts

5 watts!
