View Full Version : Super Bright vs 40% Energy bulbs

So... obviously
strings with multiples of 35 use 3.5v bulbs and...
strings with multiples of 50 use 2.5v bulbs

but i have alot of strings with Super Bright bulbs...
and ones with energy saver 40% bulbs..

is it the bulb that makes the difference or the string?

for example can i use the bulbs in the other strings? will they pop. or just look dim... extra bright?

thanks.. haven't been able to find any info on the different online.

Quite honestly - I haven't been able to tell the difference.

I use the engery savers almost exclusivly, as I find that at 100,000 lights the savings of .13amps per string ads up.

Read the fine print on the box....They are comparing the energy savers to a longer string if I remember correctly...

Well, the ones I have are 100 lights at .2a, and the walmart ones I have are .33a/per 100 lights.
