I placed order for 2 cases and had them shipped to the store about 2-3 miles away from me for pick up to save and additional $15!!!!!!!! That couldn't be sweeter.

What do you use for bulbs in these? Surely you can't use the stock bulbs to get your stuff that bright.

I myself have not used these clip lights.

I bought a few hundred on ebay over the years.

Let me grab one BRB:

The ones I use are from a company called "Darice"
and I personally only use 15 to 25 watt bulbs.

15watt if lots of cut-outs in the carve
25watt if mostly shaded.

But Never had any heat up on the cords, At the farm I would have about 75 of these burning at once, and on the same Line/Power source. for many hours.

As I stated I never used the Dollar store Ones.

So I don't know what wire is Used SPT-1 or SPT-2

SPT-1 is standard Lamp Wire and can Handle High wattage bulbs.

Maybe Alex can look at the wire and let us know.


If you have $100 bucks laying around you can buy a (50 Bulk Lot) of these on ebay.

So their like $2.19 each

These ARE SPT-1 and are 6' (foot) Long with inline switch.

The Guys got a crap load of them
