LED plug in fairy lights are very similar to traditional fairy lights except that they do not have a filament inside the bulb that can burn out and make the set redundant. The main benefit of LED lights is that they are hard-wearing and they don’t get hot. All of Sparkle's plug in fairy lights are LED.

The average family has their plug in fairy lights on for six hours per day from when it gets dark until when they go to bed.
