Many people are wondering if there is a difference between using a LED light versus a regular light bulb. Is there a color difference? Is it easy to use? We've decided to answer those burning questions here to help when building your Lemax Village. We compared them on the following characteristics: color temperature, the power source and brightness.
Just looking at the two light bulbs, there isn't really a big difference. They are very close to the same color.
We LOVE this new function! You can turn individual light bulbs off by pressing the little black button on the LED bulb. 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 to turn off 1 light bulb is to unscrew one of the light bulbs, which can be hazardous to your fingers health. This new on/off function is incredibly useful!
The new LED light bulb string is powered with the 4.5V Lemax Adaptor. Which means that with a 3 output 4.5V Lemax Adaptor, you can power up 12 houses. That's an entire village! Lemax does have a multi-light string, we found that the distance between the 1st light bulb and the plug to be a bit close. However, it's incredibly helpful not having to worry about where the plug is in relation to where you want to set up your village.
The only thing that's an issue is the size of the bulb. It appears that with certain house structures, the light doesn't spread to all parts of the house. See the photo below:
The left side is not as well lit as the right side. We believe this is due to the size of the LED bulb. The regular light bulb is longer and it seems to spread the light to the rest of the house better.
Other than the size of the bulb, the new 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. Paired with one of Lemax's 4.5V adaptor here, you can power up to 12 houses!
