This is a simple, cheap and convenient in-line 120 V AC, 100 Watts, 0.85 Amps, polarized switch. You plug this switch in a 120 V AC polarized outlet (the Neutral leg is wider than the Hot leg) and plug your Christmas decoration cord (or an indoor appliance light you want to flash and create a nice atmosphere)in this switch. It switches the light ON and OFF at a frequency of about 3-4 times per second. The switching is done by a bi-metal leg surrounded with a small wire which heats and produces the contact's movement. The drawback of this switch is that the internal extremely small heating wire burns easily if you plug in it a load larger than 90-100 Watts. I have repaired a few of them but you need a little bit of electrical knowhow to do the job right. It also requires a minimum of 15 milliamps current load to start flashing. If you plug in it incandescent type Christmas lights you are OK. If you plug in it the new type of LED (Light Emitting Diode) Christmas decoration lights (they use very little current) you would have to plug a small incandescent (about 5 or 7 Watts) light at the end of your cord to increase the drawn current and produce the correct flashing.

I have used this light flasher for many years during Christmas time and all my neighbors liked my decoration. All my outdoor and indoor decorating lights were controlled by this type of flasher (I have probably used 10-15 pieces at one time for 10-15 light cords). I used to live in New York City area and this type of flasher was available in China town area. Here, in SC I found no store supplying this type of switch (most of the electrical department sales people did not hear about this item).
I was searching the net and I am glad I found this site supplying this flasher. The price was a lot cheaper than the ones bought in NY City and the delivery was as listed. I am glad I have discovered this site and I do recommend it to all.

This product works ok but out of the 5 two of them would not cause the lights to flicker. These are hard to find and I am happy that Amazon carries them.

Thank you

I use these outlet flashers for increased visibility of the signs and lighting for my business. The flashers were probably designed for, and are very useful for holiday lighting. The good: these flashers are very inexpensive and versatile. The bad: occasionally a brand-new flasher is dead-on-arrival; a few flashers fail after a few hours of operation; but... some of the flashers will work for months. Acknowledging a high failure rate, keep a few spare flashers on hand.

I purchased two of these flashers for my indoor Christmas lights.
As brand new products both worked with my lights but one was getting hot,
to the touch, after only a couple of minutes.
I contacted the seller and they are sending me a replacement free of charge.

I received the free replacement and now 'both' flashers work great. 8>)

We buy these flashers in bulk for Halloween effects. I will say that these are (to my knowledge) the least expensive ones found on the internet.
The only problem is that typically 20% of them do not work. We buy ten, we get 8 that work. If you can live with that, then go for it! When they work, they work!

I ordered 20 of these thinking that if I got a few bad ones it would be OK. Unfortunately most of the 20 have failed and I have decided to return all of them. Not only is there an early failure rate problem as you could expect, but there is also a continued failure rate over time. I ran 5 of them for a month and about every 2 days another would fail. Load was well within range as each was only connected to a maximum of 2 or 3 light strands.

One of the two items (Flasher) I purchased lasted just under 4 hours before it quit working.
I paid close to $20.00 for the two, I would have enjoyed a 12 pack of millers lite instead.. Mr. Elston

PS. One last word, JUNK

My old flasher for my Christmas tree died a few years ago. Once I figured out what to ask for online, the result was quick and just as expected. The flasher works great!
