I have several boxes of 50 count muli colored LED holiday time ( walmart) brand lights that do not have resistors and they have gotten hot and flickered. The two strands that flickered are in the trash and gone. One strand got so hot it melted a bulb/holder while I had it in my hand. I was able to unplug the strand but not in time to save it. I gave approx 50 other strands that I have yet to open since purchasing for fear of ruining all of them. This is theonly year/brand that I have come across without resistors.
