Public Service Announcement: Lemax Light Cords

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.

Color Temperature

Just looking at the two light bulbs, there isn't really a big difference. They are very close to the same color.

On/Off Button

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!

Power Source

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.

Brightness

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.

Final Conclusion

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!

This week, we continue our dive into Lemax's carnival rides with one that pushes the envelope.  It is one of the most elaborate, yet simple pieces we have.  While that may seem like a contradiction, this piece exemplifies how that can be done to perfection.  The motion is simple, but the piece is very large and has quite an interesting reference as the name.

Garden parties are always a glamorous event, reminiscent of any classic Jane Austen novel.  They have gone by the wayside in recent years as they were used to socialize and keep up with your other well-to-do friends.  The invention of the telephone made this process a lot cheaper and quicker.
