Most Popular Outdoor Patio String Lights
The most popular lights, by far, are the LED string lights. They are safer and very easy to work with. Their popularity has grown tremendously over the years, due to the fact that they do not get hot. They do plug into an electrical outlet but will not get hot as most electrical lights do, especially when they have been on for a longer period of time.
In summer, you want lights that do not add to the heat index. LED lighting is easy to find both in stores and online. You will find many colors, styles, and materials (usually a resin or light weight plastic). The lighting inside will produce plenty of light that will delight your family and guests, and should last for a long period of time, depending on the amount of use. You can't go wrong with the many choices of outdoor lighting products on the market today.
You may be interested in having solar lights for your outdoor use. This type of lighting does not require any electric source to work. They are solar and work totally by a solar collecting cell within the light that utilized the energy from the sun and stores it into a photo cell that allows it to give off light when the sun goes down.
This type of lighting is convenient to using in other settings where there is no source of electricity. The only drawback would be that the lights may not be as bright as the LED lights and may not stay on for very long. It will only glow according to the size of the photo cell within the lights. The price of the lights may coincide with the size of the photocell so be sure to consider that when purchasing solar string lights.
