Your Questions

Does the transformer have to be indoors, or can they be plugged in on an outside plug? Thanks

The plug included is for use indoors only. 

Are the bulbs replaceable

The bulbs are not replaceable.

Can you please clarify on plug usage? Also, what is the weight of the product?

These lights can be plugged in either indoors or outdoors, in an outdoor electric box.

The 10 bulb variant of the ligths weighs 0.936kg and the 20 bulb variant 1.733kg. The weight together with the packaging is 1.08kg and 1.95kg respectively.

Is it possible to string together two sets of these lights running from one plug?

Unfortunately no, it is currently not possible to connect strings of our Festoon lights together.

On the 20m lights, is there just one plug?

Yes, each of these strings comes with just 1 plug. 

Hi, are the light bulbs made of glass or plastic please? How fragile are they? Thanks.

The bulbs are made from plastic and are very durable. We do not have any issues with these bulbs being easily broken.

How long is the strip of 20 lights?

Lighting length: 9.5m Total length: 12.5m

Are the lights dimmable when controlled by LED dimmer switch?

The Festoon Lights are not dimmable. 

Does the plug also have a transformer built as part of it or is it a normal plug. I’m trying to asses if it will fit inside my outside covered plug socket.

Hi, this plug does have a transformer and the depth measures 10cm when plugged in.

Can you tell me if the festoon bulbs can be connected together? For example can two sets of 20 bulbs be connected together?

The Festoon Lights cannot be connected together unfortunately. 

I would like to use the festoon lights outside using a weatherproof socket in a sealed unit but I am not sure if this will work. I cannot understand if I would need to accommodate a separate transformer in the socket box or is the transformer built into the plug. If the plug is also the transformer it might fit the box but this is hard to know unless I can see an image, what does it look like?

The transformer is integrated with the plug, which is a standard size, and will therefore be compatible with an outdoor weatherproof socket. 

Are the light bulbs waterproof? A previous set, (not from garden trading)filled with rainwater, then they didn’t work.

Yes, these lights are waterproof.

Good quality items delivered on time

We haven’t taken them out of the box yet - waiting for some better weather but they look good.

The ordering was easy and I loved the products when they arrived. DPD did not deliver on the day required and Garden Trading refunded my additional delivery fee, so whilst not all good, they dealt with my issues very positively.
