Good deal and voted hot but not sure if they will just fade away over a couple of months like they all seem to do

The secret to keeping these alive is to swap out the battery for a good quality rechargeable. The battery included is usually crap and gives out quickly.

good point! Assuming the battery is replaceable.

They're usually a couple of cheap (very cheap) rechargeable AAA's or AA's.

So replacing them for better ones, they give out brighter light and last longer.

Simple, just cut a whole in the slabs oO

They would work well in grass i think and the mower would go straight over them. I think they will look neat

I dont think you would get away with not breaking the slabs. Cutting a hole is a nightmare.
I have ordered mine and they will go in the grass i think.

Just add another light.

These are ideal for the Decking AND I dunno about this but you MIGHT be able to get two banister cleaners to go with them, for just 50pence.

That should take care of any poss prob with free del.

Clicky

VERY slow page load.

not easy at all but can be done especially if thin cheapo slabs

screwfix.com/com…861

Handy for the home landing strip?

I tried one (not the one advertised here) in grass and it didnt last, first heavy downpour and it seeped in to the battery compartment. I think they are more for decking.

35 minutes and still can`t view basket lol,im half way to giveing up so slowwwwwwwwwww

I agree. I certainly wouldnt bed them into a lawn!

take a look at the 10 stand up ones for £19.99 and maybe go halves with a friend as they are another real bargain.

So they charge via sunlight and then use the battery power in the night ?
What happens during winter then with no sunlight ?

Anybody using these, do you recommend them ?

Good luck trying to view your basket ! 55mins and still attempting to open, anyone used these guys before ?

Just drill small holes in a rough circle and as the lights seem to have a large lip or overhang on them it would not have to be neat as the roughness will be hidden. Good luck, will be laborious but will look the part. Good price for these - heat added.

Did they have any guide as to where you can and can't put them? I have no decking and don't intend to try cutting holes in the patio so was going to try them in grass and flower beds. If there's nothing to say that's not recommended then if they pack up I'll just get a refund.

Expired guys & gals web site showing 'SOLD OUT' !!!!
