It’s inevitable that as you collect Department 56 Village pieces you will end up with a mound of extention cords that is hard to hide from your display. Worse yet, if you don’t have an outlet close to your display platform you will have cords running across the floor in your home. Not only do these things look bad, they can create a trip hazard and even a fire hazard if not properly set up.
Department 56 has realized these problems and come out with a cordless solution that runs on batteries! Department 56 Display Anywhere Lighting allows a collector to replace almost any lighted piece they have with a battery operated, LED Deparment 56 Retrofit Unit. The units illuminate your village pieces for approximately 75 hours on 4 AA batteries.
The Department 56 Retrofit Units can be turned on and off at the source with the connected on/off button. If you have a lot of pieces that you want to convert over, you may want to consider the Department 56 Remote Control transmitter and receiver option. The remote control interacts with receivers that are connected to the retrofit units. The innitial purchase of the remote control includes only one receiver. Additional Department 56 Receivers can be purchased in packs of 2.
