Using your string lights for the first time

In order to shed some light on this for you, here are a few useful facts.

How long will the batteries last in my string lights?

These string lights have a rechargeable battery (14.3 x 2.2 cm), with a built-in USB-C port. They will last from 6 to 17 hours depending on which setting you use.

Mode 1: 50 lm (17 hours)
Mode 2: 100 lm (9 hours)
Mode 3: 200 lm (6 hours)

When there is 15% power remaining, the lights flash and drop to 50 lm to indicate the battery is getting low.

How do I hang the lights where I want them?

The string lights have three hooks on either side, so you can attach them to your tent poles, hanging them from one pole to another, for example. Simply wrap the hook around the pole and pass the string lights through the hook – it couldn't be easier!

It is also worth noting that if the string lights are hung high enough, the eight bulbs will provide 360° of light.

Looking after your string lights

If you have spent the night outside in the rain, or if you’ve dropped your string lights near a muddy puddle, they may be slightly dirty. Don't panic! We recommend using both a couple of cloths: one dry and one damp.

Using the dry one first, remove most of the dirt by giving the bulbs and the cable a wipe over. Then wipe over with the damp cloth to remove any stubborn marks. You can then leave your string lights to dry in the open air.
