I can't work out the size of this. Is this like path lighting or area lighting?

Probably a really stupid question!!

Specifications: -Light body dimensions: 4.5in x 3.3in x 1.6in - Solar panel dimensions: 3in x 1.6in

These are pretty bright for a solar light.

These are good- much smaller than what you would imagine, but bright all the same. Constant dim light when dusk falls and then full power when PIR activates.

I dont get it, how does this work at night like shown in the picture if theres no sunlight? I thought solar energy cant be stored?

Fantastic little lights would recommend them I got them last time at £10.99 each and looking to buy more

It's this wonderful invention called a battery. You may have heard of it?

New technology developed in China. It captures the sunlight and compresses it into a large underground tank - the part you see is just the above ground section. There's a valve to let the light out slowly after dark but you mustn't get too close during this solar lighting phase as it's radioactive.

Why does it need wireless?

That's how it communicates with the underground tank.

It must be something to do with wireless security.

It's not a stupid question. The unit is slightly thicker than a cigarette packet and lights a wide area well. When not acting as a floodlight, it discharges the energy as a sort of nightlight. I've got three. All good.

How bright is it? How far can it illuminate? I suspect it's much weaker than a cheap flood light isn't it?

In all seriousness though:

It's a self contained unit, the solar panel charges the internal battery during the day.
It works out when it's dark, turns on the PIR sensor and the low level light.
Once the PIR is turned on, walk near it and that trips full power to be supplied to the light and it goes bright.

Not really that hard when you think about it

Can you insert a battery or do they work solely on the solar power?

Banned

is there any socket for insert the battery ?? or its only working on solar ??

Please some body give me the full picture of the item ..HELP Please..:)

there is a picture on amazon of it in the dark, and in all seriousness, it doesnt look very bright at all in regards to what it is illuminating

Thanks ordered 2

It will have an internal rechargeable battery to hold the charge the solar panel supplies, this will then supply the power needed for the lamp to light up!
Very simple really I'm surprised so many people here need a complicated explanation..

It means the old meaning of wireless as in no wires... Not wifi :-P

Is it me or are people getting dumber by the day ?

Loved the under ground tank prank !!

All these devices look great, and so does the theory, but the performance is winter when you need the light is what concerns me.
There's around 7 hours 30 minutes daylight on the shortest day 14 hours 30 minutes darkness, these things work in the evening, but are completely discharged come the dark morning.

There are loads of these kind of lights on Aliexpress for half the price of this, and that includes shipping.

They're not dumb - they just weren't designed for the 21st century. Hope they don't have a car!

Sometimes I really love this site

there are great for a cheap way of lighting up a dark spots in garden or above outsite doors...

im very impressed with mine...

Another good question....I'll explain what I use it for.
Outside my house, in the garden I have a woodstore for the fire, and the lights are strategically placed there. When i'm outside in the dark they illuminate the area well. They are nothing like the old two halogen bulbs that were there before, but they were way too bright! I got blinded looking for wood and the whole street lit up.
These are like a torch I suppose, but with a wide area. The great thing is they throw a dim night light effect all night, and step it up when needed. So, they are good for security all the time, and people can't quite work out what they are.
For £13, you really can't go wrong. I took a punt and got what I needed, but if you need to floodlight a garden each time you go out for a cigarette or get some wood, well these aren't for you.

how much direct sunlight do these need?
I am tempted but the position I have in mind only gets direct sunlight for a couple of hours a day, in the morning.

Well, that's what I thought! I actually need a floodlight that illuminates the front pavement so that my camera can shot clear if anyone were doing nasty things on my car. My camera is indoor, and if I turn on the night mode, the IR light will reflect horribly from the glass and I will see nothing outside I was looking for something that illuminates well from outdoor, ideally with minimum wiring and not annoying neighbours.

This seems not for me but must for someone Heat added though!

Thanks!

Have a look at the various spotlights from MR Beams on, for example, Amazon.
I have the 360 lumen spotlight in my back garden. It is powered by 4x D cell batteries with a PIR sensor and stays on for ~30 seconds. I found that I had to recharge the batteries every month in winter but that's acceptable as I spend plenty of time in the garden with the rabbit.

Does anybody know where I can get something like this instore tomorrow please

Not expired, looks like a great buy!
