2.5 volt mini replacement bulbs with a pinched base.  These pinched base bulbs are essential for certain light sets and pre-lit decorations, so we are excited to be able to offer them to you in these replacement value packages.  Each pack has 20 bulbs.  Available in clear or multi (4 each of red, green, blue, amber, and yellow).
These replacement bulbs with clips on the bases are designed to fit GKI Bethlehem brand light sets made over the years.  They will fit other brands as well; simply remove the glass portion from the husk and insert the bulb into your existing light set!
These 2.5 volt bulbs are ultra-bright wattage.  They are not as typical as other wattages are for 2.5 volt bulbs, so please be sure to check the specifications on your light set to be sure that these match in every way.  If you put these bulbs in a light set that requires 0.42 watt bulbs, these will glow really dim and will not look great.  If you are unsure of what you need, you will want to reference the little white tag near the plug to your light set.  This should have information about the ideal wattage and amperes for your light set.
Bulb Specifications
2.5 volt, 200 mA, 0.5 watt
Bulb Dimensions
Length of glass - 15/16"
Length of wires - 3/8"
Diameter of glass - 5 mm
Please note: Because of the many varieties of bases/sockets on mini lights, you may need to remove these bulbs from their bases so that you can reuse the base/husk from your burnt out bulbs.  It is important to hold on to your old bases, so that these new bulbs can be assured a good fit. In order to replace bulb, bend wires straight, pull bulb out from base, and then slip the new bulb in place.

    Worked Perfectly

    Worked perfectly for my Bethlehem lights Christmas tree. Replaced a whole section of the tree with these lights. All worked and looks identical to existing bulbs. Order delivered quickly.

    After searching various retail outlets I finally found just what I needed and they worked great. They fit, and more imporantly, they didn't burn out.

    bulbs for tree

    Posted by Kathleen W. on Jan 11th 2021

    I had called Bethlehem Lights several times looking for replacement bulbs for my tree. They told me they don't make them. I happened upon you by accident and they are perfect. Perhaps you could call Bethlehem Lights and advise them you carry replacements.

    Pinched based Christmas lights

    Finding hard to find items was the best luck we had this year. The customer service was exceptional and we were pleasantly surprised to find the exact replacement lights we needed. The service representative was extremely helpful.

    These were not the longer shank that I expected. My Bethlehem wreaths must be of a previous design because these won’t work.

    2.5 volt Mini Replacement bulbs

    Posted by Rob on Dec 15th 2020

    Our Christmas tree is now 15+ years old and as with all things is not going to last forever. We has a number of bulbs out and one whole string. We checked around for a new tree after not being able to find the Pinched base bulbs. Short story, we found the bad bulbs on the dead string which now shines bright. We ended up replacing bulbs (32)all over the tree so should be good for another 15 Christmas seasons.
