H09741 - Bethlehem Lights S/2 BatteryOperated 32" Trees with Timer
Still great 3 years later
I bought these 3 years ago in the multi. Put them out again last weekend for the 3rd year and I am still delighted. I use them on the timer and on the twinkle setting. I found when I had them on the steady setting that the lights looked a tiny bit sparse but on twinkle they are adorable. Very bright and vivid colors. I got 2 trees and 2 of the urns to hold them. I leave them outside on a covered porch. I got the 16 inch wreaths as well with equal success. Last year I got 2 trees and 2 wreaths for my mother. She loves them, too. I find the batteries last a bit more than a month, although one tree kept going for 3 mos last year. I love having a nice outdoor decoration that turns itself on and off and looks great. I guess I'm a low maintenance chick!
I just got these guys in the multi and they are just perfect and adorable. I can see why they sold out already, That happened to me last yr, and when Xmas in July came I was ready for them. I also ordered the 2 urns to place this outside on my porch, and they are absolutely perfect, I am sure I will get a lot of stares from passersby with these. I also have 2 BL swags which will go with them on porch, I have side railings w/a decorative end column. Even tho it's 85 out today, I'm Jingle belling all the way......
Thnx BL, now if these trees would only come decorated for Halloween, hymmmmmmmmm...............
Great trees..but poorly made battery case
I purchased the trees three years ago. Love how they look outside on my deck, however, the top of one of the battery holders snapped off. I now have to use masking tape to keep it together but it seems to work. If the case can be improved I may order more for my porch, but not if the case is still plastic and poorly make.
These are in either side if my nativity on my table - beautiful! Just what I needed!
I bought these last year along with the fiberglass containers and they look great on the front entrance to our home. I have the clear and find they are a little cooler in color than my other decorative lights. Please encourage Bethlehem Lights to make other items that will fit in the fiberglass containers so they can be used during other seasons of the year. This would make the purchase a better buy.
sorry battery box
I would not recommend these trees to anyone. The battery box broke and now the switch that controls the on/off or timer or steady does not work. It does what it wants to. I called Bethlehem lights and they basically told me sorry, they do not have spare parts for anything that comes from QVC. I will think twice before I buy another battery operated tree with timer. Unfortunately, I have already ordered other items with the battery operated box.
Love these Trees
I got these a few years ago so I could take one with us to Disney World at Christmas and decorate the room window, I made little Mickey icon ornaments to hang on it and it was just Beautiful!!! Needless to say it goes to Disney World every Christmas now and the other one decorates our lanai. Batteries last the whole season and then some as I use them in my CI candles. Beautiful on steady or twinkle
I keep these outside in Wisconsin winter year after year and still looks brand new. The bulbs are so bright after the falling snow it's beautiful. I always look forward to pulling in after work and see these lit and welcoming me and family home.
Expanding my inventory this year w/the hanging basket for the back yard by the bird feeders.
Awesome product and would not consider any others. Price is worth the product. Not cheap at all.
I bought 2 sets to use for decorating the doorways for my daughter's December wedding reception here in New England. They were just charming. We set them in 2 areas and had 2 trees outside the doors on twinkle and 2 trees inside the entry on steady. The little tree skirts were great and the concealed the battery pack. It snowed that evening and they were even more charming with snow on them! We got a lot of compliments! For the holidays I set them up in my home and outdoors on my frozen, snow-covered deck and outdoor table. I enjoy seeing them still lighting up (on-time) each evening! They will be put away, when the snow stops falling this season. They are well made and quite lovely!!!!
Long lasting ??
Loved these the first season...second season only 1 worked (and yes you need new batteries each season). I needed them for a spot in the yard where this is no electricity. It was a nice idea though.
Was disappointed with these. They do not look as full and attractive as the on-air presentation. I got them last year and used them indoors. When I took them out of the box this year, a branch on one was broken--even though it had only been used inside! I put them both outside this year, and the lights work fine. I just would not recommend these to anyone.
Excellant trees bad cases for batteries
I have had bethleham products for three years now and they work great except for the battery cases. The clips that hold them close will break off so easy and that holds the battery down. One of my trees I had just got this year and right away the clip broke and I had to tape and use rubber bands to hold it shut so it would work. Love the product and love beginning able to set it and have it come on each night. . I do take battetries out when I put them away and get fresh ones next year. The batteries are still woking but it is a good idea. LOve the product otherwise that is why I said four instead of five.
