Having been impressed by the system running for 16 days, imagine my surprise now, when it is currently on the 32nd cycle, meaning that it may well be reliably expected to run for a month. I'll let it run on to a 'stop' now, out of interest.A few weeks back, on a whim, I picked up a little LED string in Lidl, being sold off at 99c, complete with a pair of AA cells.
I've been running them on a pair of rechargeable AAs, as a test.
Apart from On and Off, there is a third switch setting that has them on for six hours, then off for eighteen and repeating daily, whilst the power source lasts - they are currently on the sixteenth cycle of that now, which is rather longer that I thought they might run on rechargeable AAs.
Today, I drilled a hole in a bottle and threaded them in, for a super-trendy light display.

The bottle was free (even when it was full) and so, for 99c and ten minutes work, I have this - and I still also have the 'real' batteries that came with it.
Fully prepared for next Christmas.
Did you have to drill through the bottle?Having been impressed by the system running for 16 days, imagine my surprise now, when it is currently on the 32nd cycle, meaning that it may well be reliably expected to run for a month. I'll let it run on to a 'stop' now, out of interest.
Yes, for a neat cable entry.Did you have to drill through the bottle?
But half the prices have gone up! Still cheaper overall but for example something I used to buy at 79p was now £1.29.Poundstretcher are doing 50% off everything in the Stafford store.
I think other Poundstretcher stores are doing the same but the girl on the till couldn't confirm which ones.
That must be Greene King's ‘Magic Pints Initiative’, in partnership with wastage saving app Too Good To Go, in a bid to save thousands of surplus pints of cask ale from being wasted.
