There are plenty of different types of fairy lights out there, and even the most basic of sellers is offering some version of them on powerhouse sales sites like Ebay and Amazon, but have you ever wondered what made each of them different from one another? Not all fairy light strands are equal, and while they might look similar to each other, unsuspecting consumers are falling victim to products that don’t offer the safest and highest quality available. Yet, those same customers are paying the same amount for less than desirable products.
BrightTouch has seen too much of this, and has decided it was time to step in. Safety is a real concern in today’s modern tech’ed up world, so why doesn’t every company scrutinize the safety of their fairy lights? We don’t know for sure, but we do know that we didn’t want to be like those companies.
That’s why we did everything possible to ensure that our fairy lights were safe for everyone and everything. But how did we do it?
Research into the industry will show you what many customers have found as major concerns related to safety, and many of those concerns have to do with power sources. All fairy light strands need some kind of power source, and most of them come with simple, common adapters that plug into wall outlets and then into the fairy light strand. This is simple enough and quite easy for everyone, since we’re all familiar with today’s home electrical systems. The problem is, not all of these power adapters were up to the task.
With more and more complaints being voiced about super-hot adapters and troubles with the power supplies, BrightTouch knew that we needed to find another way. That’s why we’ve gone with a more futuristic route that is certainly gaining traction as we move into the future, USB. All BrightTouch lights are powered via USB plugs that can be plugged into anything with a USB port, including car chargers, wall adapters, and computers or gaming systems. The benefits, of course, are the lack of the most problematic aspect of fairy lights and similar products – the power supplies.
LED Lighting on HQ Wire
We know that people love to decorate just about anywhere they can think of, including places that might not have previously been adaptable for decorating with lights. Before the invention of the LED, lights would often get hot, and decorating with them on certain surfaces would mean that you would be potentially creating a fire hazard. Thanks to LED lights, anyone can now decorate with lights on any surface because, quite simply, they never get hot. Over half of the energy output of a normal light bulb is given off in the form of heat, which is why your normal bulbs get so hot when they are on for long periods of time. LED bulbs just don’t have that problem.
The bulbs alone, however, don’t make up the whole picture though. The wire that connect the bulbs is also very important to the overall safety of these lights. Lots of fairy light strands are made for mere pennies and offer little in the way of quality, leaving customers to deal with wires that break easily when bent, or which aren’t waterproof. BrightTouch knew that we needed to ensure that our lights were totally safe, and to do that, we had to employ the highest quality materials possible. That’s why our lights are strung on high quality copper-colored wire, and then coated to ensure that they maintain their waterproof nature no matter where they were used.
One thing that many similar products lack is the certification by UL that most electrical appliances must have to be considered safe. Unlike those other companies, BrightTouch went through the process and made certain that our customers were protected by getting our fairy lights UL certified. Customers can rest assured that the fairy lights they purchase today will be the safest they can find on the market, and the UL label backs that up.
Safety is Number One
Throughout the process, BrightTouch fairy lights were created with customer safety at the forefront of everything. From the basic design, to our choice of power sources, these lights are safe for everyone and everything. From decorating tents and other outdoor living spaces, to providing light at night to the kids and pets in your home, there are endless possibilities when you can imagine anything and not having to worry about if it is safe.
