What makes our lighting kits so special compared to other LEGO lighting brands?
We offer set specific lighting kits, with detailed, easy-to-follow user guides. This means LEGO fans of all types can light up their favourite sets.

Another big difference is the ability to connect multiple kits via a single power source. This is an important feature for those with multiple LEGO sets or elaborate creations.
How do you power your lights?
Brite Bricks offer multiple lighting options. Our lights can be battery powered using either standard AA batteries or using flat CR2032 batteries.
What voltage do your light kits run on?
All of our lighting products run on 5 volts.
Do the lights generate heat?
All of our lights are LED lights and do not draw any form of heat. Our products are designed to run continuously.
Are they safe for my child?
Our products are safe for children over 4 years of age to use however, adult supervision is required as our parts are very small and may be tricky for children to connect.
How long do the lights run for?
The running time for our lights depends on the battery pack and the number of lights connected.

The more lights connected, the more power it draws, and therefore will not run as long as compared to a kit with fewer lights. As time goes on, the lights will slowly become dimmer as the batteries grow weaker.

Our USB option, however, can run as long as the USB power bank allows or even continuous if connected to a USB adaptor that plugs into a power main.

As a guide, our Police Car Starter Kit (6-Lights + Round/Flat Battery Pack) will run approximately 6 hours before starting to dim and then eventually stop powering after 12 hours.

Compared to a kit like the Ghostbusters Ecto 1 (18-Lights + Flat Battery Pack) will run for approximately 4 hours before dimming and then eventually stop after 8 hours.

AA Battery Packs last longer than Flat/Round Battery Packs.
Am I able to connect multiple lighting kits using a single power source?
Yes, of course! This is one of our main features.

We offer multi-light kit connecting kits which allow you to connect up to 4 light kits and power them using a USB Power Cable to a USB Power Bank or USB Power Adaptor that can connect to power main.

Simply swap out the battery packs with connecting cables. Then connect the connecting cables to an expansion board. Next, connect the expansion board to a USB Power Cable and select your power source (Power Bank or Power Adaptor).
How many light kits can I power using a single power source?
Although there are no limitations to how many lights you wish to power off a single source, we recommend using around 8 light kits per single power source. This will provide you with optimal brightness from your lights.

The more lights added to a single power source will result in a decrease in the level of brightness. This is because of the increased power required to illuminate the lights.
