USB-powered LED lights from Paper Starlights
Bright USB LED lighting kit for ambiance

USB LED Light (with 4 meter cable)


Light your star effortlessly with our USB-powered ultra-low energy eco-friendly lighting kit. Exclusive to Paper Starlights, it comes complete with ultra-low-energy LED lamp and 4m USB cable.

Lightweight and convenient to use, simply plug the USB cable into any USB outlet – works with wall sockets, phone chargers, power banks, laptops, solar USB chargers, battery boxes, and more.

With its 1.5W warm white LED lamp and detachable 4-meter USB cable, our kit gives you freedom to position your paper star lantern wherever you choose. No more struggling with limited cable length or changing batteries. Simply tie your star over the LED lamp and enjoy instant ambience anywhere!

Versatile and compatible with most charging devices, it’s your portable lighting solution for indoors, outdoors and on-the-go. What’s more, it uses 90% less power than a traditional 40W incandescent bulb - good news for the environment and your pocket! 

We’ve developed our exclusive lighting kit especially for our stars. Its perfect balance of warm light and bright luminescence enhances design and colour – showcasing each star to its full potential.

The kit is all you need to display your star anywhere.  And, with low energy usage and low running costs, it provides a cost effective and environmentally friendly way of sharing the light!

Kit includes:

  • 1 x 4 metre white extension cable USB - A male to USB - A female
  • 1 x Warm white low-energy LED double sided lamp - 1.5 Watts .

(Please note: Plug socket and power source not included.)


To open, hold star flat, place one hand inside one of the outer points and gently ease point outwards.

Carefully repeat the first step with remaining points. Ensure each point is fully open before moving on to the next.

Using the two cords provided, gently bring the two outer points together. If illuminating, place over light source and tie cords firmly to secure in place. Do not pull the cords to open your star.

For use indoors and in sheltered outdoor environments

Recommended for use with LED bulbs up to 7 watts. Ensure bulb doesn’t touch any part of the Starlight. Do not exceed 40 watts. 

Do not use near naked flame. Make sure all electrical fittings are safe before use.

Can be used with battery operated LED “string” or ‘fairy’ lights, providing they conform to the appropriate safety standards, and no part of the unit produces heat.

Your Paper Starlight conforms to BS EN IEC 60598-1:2021

How do I use my star?

Use as a lampshade over any pendant light fitting or as a lantern with a set of battery operated LED fairy lights inside.

Our stars also look fantastic unlit as 3D decorations.

To preserve materials, we encourage using our stars over a light source you may already have – but we do supply cable kits and fairy lights just in case you need them!

Our stars are perfect for use indoors, or in dry outdoor environments.

What lamp should I use inside?

They have been tested to use with a maximum wattage bulb of 40 watts. 

However - LED lamps between 2 and 5 watts are the best – the higher the wattage and lumens ( e.g. 5 watts ), the brighter it will be. For a more ambient glow, use a set of LED fairy lights or a lower wattage lamp ( e.g. 2 watts ).

The effects of the star will be different depending on which colour star and which type of light you use inside.

Our stars conform to the British Standard for luminaires BS EN 60598

How do they work?

They come flat. You simply open them up one point at a time and tie the two cords together to form a perfect star.

Instructions are provided with each lantern and you can watch a video which shows you how to open and hang it.

Gorgeous stars!

I love these star lights so much, they look so amazing. Gradually adding to my collection!

Great service and came back for more.
