USB fairy lights: Operate Christmas lights on a computer or charger

USB fairy lights and USB light strips can be used not only at Christmas time, but all year round. If you want to use it to illuminate the room while working or gaming, for example, simply connect it to your Mac or PC. With the help of a simple USB-A charger, you can also use it completely independently of your computer, tablet and smartphone. Simply plug it in and operate it directly from the socket - for lighting on the mirror, above the bed, on the Christmas tree or anywhere else. Below you will find a selection of different USB fairy lights.

LED fairy lights with 100 large, bright lights over 10 meters

This modern LED strip of lights comes with large LED light bodies, which are intended to provide more luminosity and light diffusion compared to similar fairy lights. By using three instead of two copper wires in the light chain, it is said to be more stable and therefore more durable. The higher luminosity means it is not only suitable for atmospheric room lighting, but also for use as a party light. It can be controlled via a control box on the cable, via remote control and with the smartphone app. Here you can find all the information and how to order.

USB power supplies and power banks for operating the fairy lights

If you want to order a USB power supply for your fairy lights, then I would recommend one that can be used extensively and can also be used for your smartphone and/or tablet. Because just a cheap USB-A charger won't last you long. My suggestion would therefore be a 20 watt model from Anker with USB-A and USB-C port. In addition to operating the fairy lights, you can also charge your iPhone.

A power bank is very practical for mobile use as well as for use on the balcony, terrace and in the garden. If you equipped with a 20.000 mAh model, which offers multiple USB-A and USB-C ports, then you're prepared for any party. You can then even use it to charge or operate the Bluetooth speaker if its battery is not enough for the entire celebration. In addition to operating the fairy lights, a power bank is also a good travel companion for charging your iPhone on the move.

  1. Fairy lights are nice, but as I once heard (consumer advice center or Warentest, I can't remember exactly), you get a lot of electrosmog with them.
    How does Sir Apfelot feel about this?
    asks with kind regards
    Eva

    1. Hello Eva! So when I hear the term “electrosmog” I always have to smile. On the one hand, this is the question: What exactly is electrosmog? Electromagnetic waves? If yes: Do you have a cell phone or perhaps even a DECT radio phone at home? Then you probably don't need to worry about the LED chains. The two devices then probably produce so much “electrosmog” that the string of lights is of no consequence.
      The second thing is, where are the electrosmog waves from fairy lights supposed to come from? If I just have a normal string of lights, it doesn't even have a radio module. And with a USB string of lights there isn't even a high alternating voltage that could cause any kind of radio interference.
      So from my point of view: You have to look closely at what kind of panic is being spread. And then look closely at which products are being criticized. If you have a specific message, I'd be happy to look at it, but connecting fairy lights and electrosmog are two too general terms for me.
      LG, Jens

    1. Gladly! I hope it helped a little. I think I'll get a USB string of lights to see how they work. 😊 Then I can also spruce up my workplace a bit.
