Distinguish between LED Christmas lights and commercial decorative lights.
LED Christmas lights and commercial decorative lights can be seen everywhere in the city at night. Both LED lights have the same decorative function, but there are many differences between the two kinds of decor lights. Why is there a bit of difference in the price? Do you confused about the purchasing?
So what’s the difference between them?
This article is about distinguishing between LED Christmas lights and commercial decorative lights. And help you to formulate better/process your orders, control the quality and choose the right products to save your purchase cost. At the same time, and to answer kinds of trouble in the procurement process. It’s better to avoid the losses in different quality, the material, production technology, strategy, etc. Today we will solve these puzzles so that you can make your orders better in the procurement process.
Although both have adornment functions equally, because of different quality, etc. caused its price difference. Often it brings some buyers to all kinds of troubles and business losses. But what’s the difference?
LED Christmas lights include LED string lights, battery fairy lights, rope lights motif, LED tree lights, and so on. Usually with some mini LED bulbs, strings of lights, and various festive theme elements as the orientation. Such as all kinds of straight-line lamp string, battery string lights, icicle lights, curtain lights, and so on. The service life requirement is not high. The price is low, generally used during the festival as a consumer product.
Commercial decorative lights are usually outdoor-oriented, such as high-quality string lights, various giant shape lights. The main requirements are better water resistance and longer working life, and high cost.
The difference in quality standard
I believe that any business owner is particularly concerned about their quality, whether you are a brand, wholesaler, retailer, etc. It is also a critical point that we as manufacturers are mainly focusing on it. In terms of the production of LED Christmas lights, different raw materials are usually used according to foreign markets and international quality standards, mainly reflected in wire, LED lamp beads, the power supply, product structure, waterproof performance, and production process.
Because of the widespread use of Christmas lights with favorable prices, the annual Christmas lights exported from China reach 140 million USD. According to the quality standard requirements of each importing country, the production and use of wire internal and external warp standard requirements are different. More and more low-voltage decorative lights have become the industry’s mainstream because of environmental and safety factors. Reflect additional quality requirements from the following points.
1, About the wire
The first is the diameter of the wire, divided into inner diameter and outer diameter. Usually, Christmas lights with low voltage holiday lights wire 0.2 square copper wire. And the commercial decorative lights with the line are generally 0.5-0.75-1.0-1.5 square wire copper wire.
The second is the material of the wire, copper wire, aluminum wire, steel wire core. Commercial lights make of pure copper wires. LED Christmas lights due to a season decor application, raw materials, quality requirements are not high. The use of wire is also a variety. Using substandard wire will be caused to a variety of defective products, also will bring different degrees of loss, serious will let the business bankrupt.
In addition, the exterior materials of the wire are PVC wire and rubber wire.
PVC surface is smooth, and fluid resistance is small, no scaling, small thermal expansion coefficient, without shrinkage deformation. The price is relatively low.
The rubber wire has specific weather resistance and can withstand greater external forces, soft, good elasticity, cold resistance, ultraviolet resistance, good flexibility, high strength. The price is relatively high.
Of course, you can make different products according to the use environment, environmental factors, cold resistance, UV resistance,
2, LED bulbs
The most commonly used LED bulbs for LED Christmas lights are diameter 5mm LED bulbs, F5 LED bulbs. Occasionally there are diameter 3mm artificial tree lights and LED rope lights.
Such as the 5mm LED bulbs have multiple price levels, mainly in the chip size, pins, illuminate, the price difference caused by different processes and materials. And, of course, it will show up in use. The poor quality LED lights often have rapid light decay. Life is short—Rusty bulbs’ pins and so on.
The waterproof requirements of ordinary LED festival lights are generally IP44. It is no problem to use them only on light rain days, and they will undoubtedly be affected when they encounter water.
The commercial decorative lights are customization products usually and some rubber lines with high waterproof levels and super bright LED lamp strings, giant motif lights.
The power cord is usually in 1.0 square, 1.5 square, and 2.5 square meters of pure copper wire. LED bulbs are mostly customized copper pins, high bright, large chip, and light color is uniform, and the low light decay, the service life is long up to 2-3 years approx.
3, waterproof grade
Ordinary festival lights are generally waterproof for IP20 and IP44.
Commercial decorative lamp waterproof requirements are generally higher from IP44 to IP65.
The metal frame used for custom outdoor modeling lamps is usually square tube and about 2cm thick Aluminum or iron frame and base.
4, Color consistency
The better the color rendering, the more natural and consistent, and then the color will display by the LED bulbs. The color rendering index mainly reflects the natural color of the object itself. The higher the color rendering index, the more accurate you can see the thing’s color through the light. For example, the color rendering index of the light emitted by the sun is 100, and ordinary LED lights are generally about 70 or 80. High bright lamp reaches 90 above commonly.
The price is different LED Christmas lights and commercial lights
Different materials lead to differences in production costs and sales prices.
Of course, due to the different requirements of the above quality standards, the price of the festival lights is different. Due to the low cost of other materials, festival lights are relatively cheaper, commercial decorative lamps, different quality standards slightly higher prices. Get the newest wholesale price now!
The production process
Due to the wide use of festival lights, the production process is fast and straightforward consumer goods.
And commercial decorative lamps are usually more customized products. The production process is according to different requirements. With the other method, production process control is more strict.
Christmas lights are relatively small power. Generally, it is usually within 20 watts. It could be smaller, depending on the product. Its most significant role is to need to watch more strongly. Its light source power gives starlight appearance is ok, needless too bright.
Commercial decorative lights are generally more potent than holiday lights. It will range from 50 watts to 400 watts. Some giant commercial lights have high power because of the different production processes, materials, and product requirements.
Different application places
Choose suitable decorative lights according to different application places. Usually at festivals, events, weddings, parties, bushes. The Christmas tree. The room, the window, the balcony. A pavilion. Most decorations use these LED fairy lights, which are low cost and can create an excellent holiday atmosphere. It can use indoors or outdoors.
However, commercial decorative lighting use outdoors in the majority. Usually in the town square. Park, an extensive shopping, a commercial pedestrian street. Street leisure square. Tourist area.
The service life is different.
The service life of Christmas lights is generally about 5,000 hours. Commercial decorative lighting usually design to have a service life of 15,000 hours, and high-quality customized models can be up to about 50,000 hours.
Festival lights generally have a life span of one year, while commercial decorative lights have a life span of at least 2-3 years.
But different use environment, temperature and other factors on the life also have an impact.
Through the above points, I believe that better grasp the product quality standards and pricing, so that the business is getting better and better.
