Noma “Super Bright” LED Christmas Lights

This season, Noma has introduced a new line of “Super Bright” LED Christmas lights.  I picked up a string of 70 “Super Bright”  multi-coloured LED Christmas lights last night from Canadian Tire and they really are much brighter than the older style Noma LED Christmas lights.

The two immediate advantages to the Noma “Super Bright” LED Christmas lights are the ability to change the lights and the fact the string is fused!  Included in the box were two additional fuses and two replacement LED “bulbs”. Yippee, we potentially can now have no more burned out LED lights!

Oh, and by “changing the lights”, I mean you can change the order in which the lights are on the string.  You just pull off the coloured plastic strawberry shaped light and swap it with any of the other lights on the string.  Super!

Unfortunately the Noma “Super Bright” LED Christmas lights are not perfect.  They are supposed to have yellow and orange lights but there is very little difference between the two colours.  It’s sort of like bright yellow and not so bright yellow. If you notice in the (crappy) picture below, the “Super Bright” LED lights around the front window are brighter and more yellow than the others.

This is unfortunate as the biggest complaint about the older LED lights was that the blue and green were overpowering.  Now you just get a whole lot of yellow.

Also, be careful with the length of this string of lights.  The set of 70 is supposed to be 23′ long but that doesn’t seem to be the case.  One review on the Canadian Tire page linked above says their set was only 17′ long.  I didn’t measure mine before installing but the string of lights is definitely not 23′ long.  Maybe if you put the thing on a rack and stretch it out completely straight it might be close.

Finally, make sure you keep your receipt!  The box indicates a 5 year warranty (as does the instruction sheet inside) but it explicitly states you must have proof of purchase.  Go and put that receipt in a safe spot now.

    Where can I get a 3.2 v (1200 mAh) lithium-ion battery for my NOMA eco-bright solar powered LED Christmas lights? I bought a set last year, and they don’t work this year.

    LED lighting, solid state lighting, uses up to 1/10Th the electricity of conventional forms of illumination and will last up to 50 times longer. LED lighting is safe, produces little or no heat, and is instant on at full brightness.No mercury, ultra-violet light, or hazardous materials being brought into your home and ultimately impacting our environment in landfills. My friend once by From OKLEDLIGHTS.COM,they are good products and service ,may be you can look some there .
