The "Rice Lights" are 22-feet long with 140 non-replaceable miniature lights on each string. They have multicolor bulbs with green wire, clear bulbs with white wire, or clear bulbs with green wire. The fused plug reads "TING SHEN," and "TS-20." The lights have a push-button control box that allows for eight different lighting effects, including "CHASING FLASH," SLOW FADE" and STEADY ON."
