Has anyone ever found any solar lights actually worth having? Usually the light given off is so dim it isn't really worth having?

SOME PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE ANYTHING.

Yes, Tesco is selling half price Solar lights for your garden. However, anyone who was prepared to pay full price for these bits of tat needed their bumps feeling.

The fact of the matter is that in order to ligitimately state that you are reducing the price of something, it needs to have been on sale for X days (21?) somewhere in the country at the higher price. This stupid law is so easy to get around it's unreal, but the result is that Tesco can ligitimately claim that this overpriced rubbish is now half price and, as we all know (and is proven by the ridiculous 136 degree heat rating here) people love a bargain. It's just that a lot of people (136 here at least) have been conned into thinking it's a bargain.

Look the exact same ones as Focus DIY do at £4.99 for 2, or £24.95 for 10 and £14.97 for the 6.

Thus I agree with the poster in the suggest they were horrendously overpriced in the first place! Focus also do them for 2p cheaper before offers for 6 and only £5 more expensive for 10. You can get them in Silver for £6.99.

They will never light a huge area they are battery powered lights- and how many battery powered lights do people use to light rooms, but give enough light to see up a dark path without using an electric light.

One good thing about Solar lights is they come with a re-chargeable battery. I've tried a few in my radio and they worked O.K lol!

Spot on, they haven't lost their market trader origins and use the law and customer gullibility to their advantage.
Trading Standards on "Sale " prices

Some typical scams are:

* Retailers may buy in stock specifically for the sales but, because they have never sold them before, the price reductions are not genuine.
* Retailers might offer to sell at an inflated price in just one or two branches, then reduce the price across all their shops nationwide.
* Another method is to put an item on sale at an inflated higher price at a time when there is little demand for it.
* It is not uncommon for shops to have sales all year round. A variety of marketing techniques are used to run so-called 'half price sales' all year round. But shoppers really save very little, if anything, from the normal high street price.
* Even offers such as 'buy one - get one free' should be viewed with a degree of suspicion. In some cases the 'buy one- get one free' is alternated with another so-called offer such as 'half price'. In reality, this means the goods are never on sale at the higher price.
* It is also worth watching for reductions which are claimed from vague higher prices such as 'worth' or 'normal High Street price'. However, claims are allowed from the recommended retail price (RRP), although many RRPs are inflated to make price reductions seem larger than they actually are.
