    Do note, the incandescent rope lights tend to use an alarming amount of power. Because the filaments are so tiny, they conduct a lot of heat into their housings and turn relatively little of the incoming electricity into useful light.

    You might feed 100 watts into this string, and get as much light as a 6-watt nightlight bulb. That's fine, if your goal is to jazz up the place and make it look cool for a few nights a year, but if you're using these *as* a nightlight, putting a lot of hours on them, then consider that you're wasting a ton of power over time. The tradeoff of buying cheap may or may not be sensible, depending on the situation.

    Agreed, in this day and age you should just get warm white LED strings instead, UNLESS they will go outdoors in a snowy area where you want the heat to keep them clear of snow and ice.
