Asda Solar Powered Garden Lights 88p - £3.50 instore - Bristol

LocalFound 6th Jul
Hi all

In Asda Living Bristol today upstairs the staff were reducing numerous solar powered garden lights to clear.

Lots of different styles, colours etc so what I have in the pictures is only a small selection (sorry for the poor quality was taken on the fly as I had to get to my next appointment afterwards)

Prices range from 62p (hanging style individual light bulb lights) 88p (numerous stake style garden lights) to £3.50 (larger stake style lights were £7)

There were also some rock style lights from £4 to £1 and novelty animal styles between 62p to 88p

Speaking to the manager this is a national deal for those stores that stock them

Wasteful of what? They are solar.


Resources not electricity. They're generally poorly waterproofed and get hot in the sunlight, both of these are bad for the electronics and the NiMh battery inside. The end result is they don't live long but when they do fail it's not really worth fixing them so in the bin they go and onwards to landfill.

If I could be bothered I'd get a big solar panel and a lead acid battery then hook up some 12V garden lights to it. Low voltage means it should be fairly safe to DIY and the only thing to fail is the battery which can be recycled.

Save yourself 88p, theses things last all of 5 minutes and are incredibly wasteful. Better off buying electric and running a cable, yes they’re more expensive and yes it’s more effort but given the planet is trying to go green these things should be banned.
