    how much current are they is probably the biggest question you are going to get, you can buy step down transformers to do the job but they are generally fairly small.

    would do for the very small end of things but you can get bigger ones.

    Details on the lights will help us. It's going to depend on whether they are led or incandescant and whether they run off plugpacks or not.
    Depending on how big they are and how much you want to pay for freight you're starting to get it a little close to December.
