The Real Problem With ‘Hardware-Store’ String Lights
String lights are a beautiful and versatile way to liven up your home, but they can be time-consuming and demanding to set up.
The ones usually available at hardware stores require long extension cords and dedicated outlets to set up. Some may even need additional equipment like voltage regulators to safely run for hours.
Plus, extension cords are both unsightly and a tripping hazard. And since they need to be plugged in, they suck up electricity— wasting energy and raising your power bills.
