What are Konstsmide Connectable Lights?
We have all seen it in the Christmas films, homes decorated from head to toe with twinkling fairy lights creating a show stopping festive display for everyone to see and enjoy.
So how do they do it?
Well its quite simple thanks to the Konstsmide Connectable lighting system, that allows you to link up a series of different lights from festoon lights, icicle lights and netting lights all at the same time from one plug.
One starter power pack can power either 1040 LED bulbs or up to 100 metres worth of lights whilst keeping power consumption at a minimum.
Each lighting set are ready to plug in with both female and male connectors on either end, creating a daisy chain of lights connecting together with ease.
1000 LED lights use together less power than one 60W classic light bulb

Konstsmide have produced their own easy and affordable connectable 31V LED lighting system that is safe and flexible for the home. If you are looking to have connectable Christmas lights for the first time this year, trying to understand what you need to create a fantastic festive display can become a little overwhelming. We have put together a guide to help you make your home look spectacular this Christmas.
First step: Power Supply
One power supply is required per 1040 LED bulbs or 100 meters of cable, whichever comes first. If you have 2000 LED bulbs you will need 2 power supplies and so on.
Step two: Extension Leads
10 metre extension leads allow you to set up lights further away from the power supply. The total length from one plug can be up to 100 metres. Extensions leads do not compromise on the quality and brightness of the LED lights.
Step three: Splitters
There are 2 types of splitters to choose from. 2-way splitters allow you to set up LED lights in two different directions from one plug and the 4-way splitter allows you to connect 4 lights from 1 cable.
Step four: Dimmers
A dimmer switch is an optional extra that features a dusk/dawn sensor and a 6 or 9 hour timer function if you want to be more precise with your lighting display.
Step five: Connect your lights
Now that you have planned where your lights will go and what you need, its time to select your lights and connect them up in your desired configuration. Choose from a range of lights including LED rope lights, LED icicle lights, LED curtain lights, LED net lights, LED fairy lights, LED festoon lights and more!
String fairy lights
Proving to be extremely popular year after year, LED string fairy lights are available in a range of colours and lengths to choose from. There are great for adding a touch of sparkle to almost everything around the home and garden such as decorating trees, bushes and windows.
These versatile lights can be used all year round and not just for Christmas. Decorate your tree with ease by guiding each light string through the branches or hang the lights over an entrance way. Theyre a great way of illuminating the home with ease adding an instant glow.
LED icicles lights look great hanging over the gutters of the house or along the window frame offering a fantastic festive display.
These are ideal for draping over bushes or small trees in the garden. They provide a quick and easy way of adding festive sparkle to the garden.
Featuring a classic bulb shaped housing, they are perfect for draping along the garden fence or from post to post, creating a fun way of adding light to the garden.
