None of the items listed on this page is suitable for mains use. Only for use with batteries (max. 12 volts), or a suitable mains adaptor suppling a maximum of 12 volts DC, e.g. as available from Argos or Maplin Electronics. (Do not use the adaptor in the garden – take only the low voltage lead outside).
Note that the power supplies used on Christmas lights, both bulb and LED type, may supply AC not DC current, if they have a "multi-function" box between the adaptor and the lighting set. This box may well contain the diodes that rectify AC to DC. Whilst LEDs can be attached to an AC supply, they will probably flash at 50hz and the voltage may be too high for just a few LEDs.
LEDs: do NOT cut or file LEDs to reduce their size, as this may expose the light-producing part, which could contain hazardous substances.
