About This Product

OptiCore LED Christmas light bulbs are the state of the art for durability, beauty, brilliance and color. The lens is made of polycarbonate, up to 200 times stronger than glass, which makes OptiCore bulbs virtually unbreakable. The lens is also 115% thicker than ordinary bulbs, allowing the light to infuse the lens with rich, vibrant color. Inside, the SMD LED diode produces brilliant light that saturates the lens evenly for a uniform appearance from every angle. And OptiCore bulbs will last for years; they boast an average bulb life of 60,000-hours. With OptiCores durability, energy efficiency and beauty, these may be the last replacement bulbs you ever need.

  • Faceted diamond-cut lens pattern generates a beautiful light halo
  • Polycarbonate lenses are virtually unbreakable, up to 200 times stronger than glass
  • Dimmable: the SMD LED diode in OptiCore bulbs is dimmable yet produces brilliant light that saturates the lens evenly for outstanding color

          False Advertising or Lack of Care
          This product is sold without a power supply cord. You must purchase this separate from the manufacturer to power the lights. No where in the product description does it state this. Unfortunately after receiving 24 boxes you see the box does state this, Home Depot decided to leave that critical part out.

              I bought these as back-ups to the full set I also purchased. It’s great to be able to change the bulbs if they burn out. Great quality and worth the cost.

                Very easy to screw on the light stringer for C9/E17 Size Incandescent or LED Bulbs. These are only the screw on lights. Home Depot didn’t sell the C9/E17 light stringer set
