    I wonder what the "ball lights" look like lit up? Something that might go well with pixels, maybe, with pixels being larger than normal LED strings?

    Here are box shots of some of the Kmart light strings to go with Driver's post. 250 bulb led strings are available in string/icicle configuration.

    Take note that these are only for indoor use, I presume the balls may not be UV rated and will deteriate very quickly.

    But i do have some Minleon sample ball lights that work with LSP and are outdoor rated and the ball look does look fantastic.

    Whoops, so they are! Completely overlooked that while filtering out everything that was solar powered (easily 50% of Kmart's lights I saw).

    I bought a $14 set of Kmart LED candy canes today to see what they were like. The come with a 2 function controller (steady / 4 channel snow effect) and 24V AC plug pack.

    The LEDs are cool white and the 4 canes are 43cm tall each. They are ok for the price, but I'll probably be returning mine as one channel is intermittent and I can't be bothered chasing down a wiring issue on a new item.
