Will C9 LED bulbs work in my old Christmas light cords?

November 28, 2018
From Paul in Florida:
A few years ago, we had bought regular C9 bulbs and cords and we are thinking of switching over to C9 LED bulbs. Would we need to purchase different cords or could we use the ones we bought previously.

Short Answer:  Yes

Long Answer:

If your cords are in good shape and are a traditional E17 base, then our C9 LED retrofit bulbs should work just fine.

(That being said, we have seen a few folks with non-standard light strings that had something wonky with the upper edge but “most” of the time, this should be a great fit. The engineer in me can’t say “always” without flinching!!)

Hope that helps!!
