  • Are café lights safe to use outdoors? How well do outdoor string lights hold up to rain or hail?

    Only outdoor rated lights are safe to use outside and will not retain water. Enbrighten Cafe are built with premium commercial-grade construction, are UL-153 rated for permanent installations and have been tested to endure the elements such as rain, hail or severe storms all year long. The lights have durable, acrylic lenses that never need to be replaced.
  • Do I have to turn them on and off by manually unplugging the cord? Is there another option?

    For the color changing Enbrighten Seasons version, you can use the remote to turn the lights on and off. With the other styles, if you want to avoid having to turn your café lights on and off manually, the best application would be to set your cafe lights up with an outdoor timer that automatically turns your lights on and off exactly when you want every day.
  • How many strands of outdoor string lights can be linked together?

    You can safely link up to 750 feet of Enbrighten Café lights.
