Many people are wondering if there is a difference between using a LED light vs a regular light bulb. Is there a color difference? Is it easy to use? So I've decided to do a blog post on the differences of using one versus the other when building their Lemax Village. I compared them on the following characteristics: color temperature,
Just looking at the two light bulbs, I don't really see a big difference. I think they are pretty much the same.
I LOVE this new function! You can turn individual light bulbs off by pressing the little black button on the LED bulb. So if you have a string of lights, you can turn individual ones off without turning off the whole strand.
For the regular light bulb, there is a turn switch to turn the light on and off or you can just unplug. However, if you have a multiple light bulb string, the only way I turn off 1 light bulb is to unscrew one of the light bulbs (often slightly burning my fingertips). So this new on/off function is really useful!
With the new LED light bulb string, you power it with the 4.5V Lemax Adaptor. So with a 3 output 4.5V Lemax Adaptor, you can power up 12 houses That's an entire village! Although Lemax has a multi light bulb light string, I find that the distance between the 1st light bulb and the plug to be too close. So I'm loving not having to worry about where the plug is in relation to where I want to place my village.
1 Negative Thing...
The only thing I'm not a fan of is the size of the bulb. I noticed on certain house structures, the light doesn't spread to all parts of the house. See below photo:
As you can see the left side is not as lighted as the right side. I think it might be because of the size of the LED bulb. The regular light bulb is longer so I feel it might spread the light better.
Other than the size of the bulb, this LED light bulb is definitely a win, especially for all y'all's fingers! Take a look at this Lemax Four LED Light Bulb String product here. Don't forget about getting 1 Lemax 4.5V adaptor here it can power 12 houses if you want!
