These lots of 5 battery operated 5 mm (red/blue flash is 3mm) LED lights are great for many projects. I use them in my battery operated candle holders and in other small items. If you are looking for a great hands on project for a kid's party, try letting the kids build a small lantern. All it takes is plain white paper, tape, crayons or markers, and any other decorations you have handy. Children love a chance to be creative. The lights are also ideal for attracting attention to wreaths, flowers, and other items.
On the SLOW RGB bulbs, each color fades in and out slowly, so other colors, such as purple, are produced as well. The FAST RGB bulbs flash from one color to the next, creating a mini light show. The CANDLE FLICKER bulbs stay one color, but the intensity changes constantly. The 3mm Red / Blue flashing bulb changes rapidly back and forth, like an emergency vehicle light. The Purple is a steady (not flickering) bluish purple color that I got by mistake, but it costs too much to return and is very pretty.
I have soldered the bulbs to a battery holder with an on/off switch and added a blob of hot glue at the connection points to reduce the chances of short circuiting. The battery holder uses 2 CR2032 batteries, which are very cheap when bought in bulk. Each light comes with 2 batteries installed and has been checked for proper operation.
The battery holders can be converted to work off a single battery by bending the copper contacts to touch at the switch side of the holder and putting the battery in the front side.
I attempt to ship all orders within one business day by USPS or UPS, which ever is cheaper. On large items, shipment is restricted to the lower 48 states, but I will be glad to quote shipping to other areas, including international shipments. Small items ship by media mail (books) or 1st class mail for other items. Priority mail upgrades are available for most items. I will be glad to consolidate shipping on most items, however I can't mix book orders and other items at media mail rates.
I can take payment through Etsy, by paypal or by debit/ credit card. Sales tax will be charged on all shipments within the state of Georgia unless you provide me with a valid resale tax certificate prior to ordering.
