Guess I'll have to look closely at the box, if buying any lights this year at Walmart...and make sure they're not the glass ones like this. Plastic is better in this case.

I may have to agree with you, they seem more like a novelty item than anything else, and on top of that, glass is fragile, and I tend to find a lot of broken mini lights when servicing strings. The main reason I grabbed a box is because I suspect they won't catch on and therefor become fairly rare in a few years, or at least that's what I expect.

I noticed that one of the glass shells fell off one of the bulbs, which could be problematic (especially indoors).

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

Well, that's interesting A glass envelope within the LEDs?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

@High Intensity:
Yep.. "glass is fragile" is the reason I'm not interested in them. I end up breaking some mini bulbs every year...some just "get broken" when putting up/taking down (I don't even know how, its not like I'm rough with the lights, I try to be gentle infact), then ofcourse there's the few I end up accidentally stepping on when they're strung up allover the roof...


The glass covers that fell off on yours...if they're like the standard plastic version, it seems there's always a couple that weren't fully put together at the factory. They should just push/snap back into place & be good.

Not a bad idea to grab a set like you did just to have one if they don't stay around.

The thing is, i don't know where it went, so for all i know, its hidden on the floor where someone will step on it. And if it breaks... then, that won't be pretty.

@High Intensity:
Yeah true! Hopefully you'll find it before that happens.
I've lost some of the plastic version. Randomly found one in the backyard this summer, and have found a couple at various times throughout years inside the house...
Pretty much never know when one will show up .LOL.

(I also save the bases & covers from dead LEDs as spares)

I dont recall any such problems with the real Incandescent mini lights. Perhaps the LED Glass ones just need some better cementing before being put to use so they dont disintegrate on their own....

@Ash:
They are fine (atleast the plastic ones) as long as they're put together correctly, which sometimes they arn't (the little covers snap in place & hold pretty good, it takes some effort to pull them off but you can...and replace the 3mm LED inside if it goes EOL).

The glass globes on these are friction fitted to the sockets with no glue or anything, and the LEDs do not have anything to do with holding them in.

So i was back at Walmart recently, and the shelf of Glass LED minilights looked untouched, while the shelf of the 'normal' LED minilights looked pretty empty (which is surprising since it's still November).

Sounds just like the plastic version. I wouldn't be surprised if you could even swap parts between the two.
I'm half-tempted to pick up a set or 2 of these in cool-white...if there's any left in the after Christmas clearances. I have noticed the little covers on some of my sets have yellowed a bit from multiple seasons of use. These would have an advantage that they wouldn't fade any...
