[COLOR=black]Hi I got some of these Sunday and there very good. I left them to charge for 48 hour and they were still working at 3am when I went to bed just one thing do not push them into the ground by the top. use the stainless steel shaft as I managed to brake one pushing it in to the ground. :giggle:[/COLOR]

Are these very bright?

Look good, but how sturdy are they?

My son sometimes knocks his ball against the solar lights and the top falls off.

Just wondered how good these are?

Was thinking of getting something for the side of the house for night time, as it's pitch black there. This would of course save me having to get an electrician to put a flood light there, but i imagine this would be a pain to have outside on all the time. And what's the charging like? How do they operate?

They charge using solar power during the daytime and light up at night.

They don't give out that much light - enough to throw a little light around roughly a half-metre radius. If you're looking to play floodlit football or land a helicopter in your back garden then you'll need something much stronger.

They're better than nothing, though...

I bought some last year from woolies and they are total crap !
The light is about as bright as a candle and gives enough light so you dont kick them ....... althouigh I've felt like kicking them :)
If anybody's nocks his balls on them they will disintigrate :whistling:
Avoid like the plague !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poundland have some at £1 each

I have seen friends with these and they always make me laugh as they are so totally usless... :-) Maybe if you lived on the equator they would be ok, oterwise they just suck...

Save your MONEY!

They're alright for marking a path edge or a trip hazard. They're not "lights" as such, just give a bluey tint and you couldn't even read a book right next to them.
Solar lights are getting better and more powerful with design...these just aren't them.

I bought a pack of 4 of these identical lamps from Woolies @ £9.99 last year, only one of them still works, they are absolute crap, sorry for sounding negative, but this is a hands on true feedback report.

I would look elsewhere.
#14
I've also bought a set of these (for £39.99) just 3 weeks ago. Doh!

So far they are pretty good - although I put the 600ma nicad AA batteries (2 in each light) in a mains charger to give them the initial charge.

They still reasonably bright considering, enough to light the pathway and to make a small feature. They do not compare to mains lights (for obvious reasons).

The reflector (sort of an tapered conical moulding) is not the best - as it always reflects the focal point of the LED light towards you so it looks the light has a very bright spot. Strangely there is no reflector on the underside of the lid, behind the led.

Overall I am pleased and for £24 I would say they are worth a punt if you want them to light a flower bed, or mark a pathway. If you want any sort of floodlight then these are not for you.

Excellent feedback... Thanks jazid :thumbsup:

I think people expect to much out of these lights...they are generally just for decoration at night. It wont illuminate a flowerbed like you imagine as most contain just 1 LED to preserve the mini amount of power generated by the solar panel. If you want proper proper illumination you can get brighter wired lights like this, which actually are available cheaper but are costly to install if you cant do it yourself/dont know how to.

If you want a lot of light go down the mains power route. If you want something to look nice at night this set is a good price.

I just expected mine to actually work for more than about 3 months, only one out of four actually work now after 12 months.

They are just cheap crap.
#18
So this is only if you pre-order and collect?

I went in to wollies today but on the shelf price was £39.95 said to be half price but why would anyone buy like that if you can get them much cheaper.

I also looked in their 'argos' type catalogue but they where the same £39.95 price.

Thanks for anu help.
