Types of umbrella light systems
There are several types of umbrella light systems. Umbrella light string systems are available in styles such as island, harbor, and a variety of others. You can find them in a variety of colors, including soft amber lighting, which keeps most bugs away. A lighted umbrella can set just the mood your looking for, whether it's a romantic red for an anniversary or green for St. Patty's Day, there's a color to suite your ever needs. Setting up umbrella lights will only take an hour or less. Once installed, you will still be able to fold and store your patio umbrella. Another outdoor umbrella lighting option is sphere lighting in which a single light is simply clamped to the umbrella pole. Sphere lighting comes with a bracket for wall mounting as well. This is option is perfect for large tables, free-standing, or wall mounted umbrellas. It also allows for easy conversation setting because you don't have a pole in the way.
Battery or electrical?
Battery operated umbrella lighting system allows the ability to illuminate any patio umbrella at any location. Finding an electrical outlet will be a thing of the past. Also, battery powered lights are perfect for use around pools and hot tubs. Electrical lighting systems usually have an extra electrical outlet. This allows the option of being able to plug other things in such as a radio.
Most umbrella lights can adjust to fit all types of umbrellas. They are also weather resistant. Most lighting systems feature string lighting which allows the string to stay lit if one bulb goes out. Depending on the system you choose, battery operated light systems use C or D batteries.
Umbrella lights are not only a practical way to add light and atmosphere to your outdoor living space, but they are fun and classy as well.
