I was really looking forward to receiving this item as part of my holiday decoration. Product description says it is equipped with an auto timer and user can use battery as well. I love the two features. but the description is NOT true. I found neither: can't use batteries to light this up, and there's no auto timer! Well I still set the tree up to see how it looks.... When it's all dark, you can't tell the quality is poor and it looks good. but It is clearly a cheaply made item when under daylight or normal lighting, and looks very fake. Well I guess you get what you paid for. Overall, I'm disappointed with the item.
