There are lot of manufacturers of the C9 & C7 LED bulbs that are used as the building blocks of most holiday displays. The manufacturer that most others try to copy and aspire to be is Minleon. If you want a balance of quality and price you just can’t beat Minleon. The bulbs cost a little bit more then the cheaper knock off bulbs that tend to flood the market but you get what you pay for. All of the C9 & C7 displays we install use only Minleon bulbs. The larger C9 bulb is what we use for just about any home or commercial project. The bulb shell is constructed out of a faceted plastic material that does a great job of emitting a soft even glow. Unlike the glass incandescent bulbs that break very easily the durable faceted Minleon bulbs are nearly indestructible. We’ve only managed to break a few Minleon bulbs and it was because a car ran over some lights that were stretched across a driveway during an installation.
