A good concept
I bought the pine cones and think they are quite realistic. I've read the other reviews and hope I don't have the same lighting problem; testing them outdoors for a couple of days they were quite striking. I have one bunch of 3 in an arrangement near my front door and the other with real greenery in an urn. I've been using battery operated decor when I can get them since electrical sources are not available where I locate pots, etc. I've had problems with other battery operated products and agree that some will not work for a long period in freezing temperatures. I have one set, used for the past 3 years and the batteries last for the entire season. Try wrapping the battery box with some insulating material.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Way too expensive to operate
from oakville, ON
Best quality batteries lasted 5 days before needing replacement. That's way too much for me to spend on batteries for a month, plus the inconvenience of having to dispose of batteries in a correct manner. Now I'm stuck with these lights, and bad feelings about them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I too was disappointed with this purchase. Despite using quality batteries lights last only a few days - was originally going to display outside - don't think I will even attempt now. Much too expensive for a product that simply doesn't work!
terrible waste of batteries
By miss shop alot
from Vancouver Island
VERY disappointed in these branches:( I really believed the vendor when he said they improved the battery life from last year. I put very good expensive batteries in these and they all but died after 3 days and one battery box was faulty. If these came back next year with an electric cord I would buy the pine cone again as they really were nice for year round use.

Not for our Canadian winter
Pinecone set looks beautiful. Bought it for outdoor urns and was pleased they had battery packs. Unfortunately, batteries died after 24 hrs of use and the lights barely twinkled in minus 11 weather.

short battery life
The first set I received was missing the ground stakes and the frosting was missing in several spots on the cranberries. The second set had 5 out of 6 ground stakes in the packaging and was in much better shape. After 2 weeks on the timer the lights are hardly working. I am hoping that replacing the batteries will fix the problem. Considering it takes 3 D batteries the life is not long. I do really like the way they look when they are working.
Pretty but won't work properly after -5.
from Winnipeg, MB
The branches are very nice. I ordered Cranberry and Pine Cone and love them both. Cranberries are larger than any I've seen. HOWEVER, they don't work in the cold. At about -5 they get weird. Dimming - looking like they're shorting out or something, despite top of the line brand new batteries. I figured it was too good to be true that they would work to -40 as was mentioned several times by the Host. :(
Okay,I gave this one star because I was thrilled to purchase this for OUTDOORS & with a BATTERY PACK (no nearby electric plug-in). I chooose the greenery set. It is beautiful! The lights twinkle just right. Unfortunately, only indoors! -11 degrees C and the twinkling becomes erratic and stuggles to blink. It's actually painful to watch. Also 3 DD batteries only work for about 4 days_this may be due to the cold. Gorgeous set_indoors only.

Can't even give this product a star but had to in order to get the review to take. What a great idea - if only it worked. Bought two sets and one worked for a few days. Then they began to fade. One arrived with the wires detached. All now don't work. I think TSC should be more diligent on ensuring this type of product has longevity. There is no follow up with the provider if the product doesn't work!!!

Does not work outdoors
Beautiful for one night, then the lights started to dim. I purchased the best batteries, but do not work for cold weather. I am very disappointed because these lights were to be the centre for my urns. I am returning them.
