Seems to me like a good deal for a Solar powered light that can be fitted without having to have access to an electric feed or indeed pay an electrician to fit it!
Not sure how bright they will be but with the three year warranty I guess I can find out and then take it back if it isn't
Up to the job. Anyone had any experience of these?

Site blurb as follows

Mains-free, environmentally friendly outdoor light with motion sensors

Judging by the cold voters I guess that most are not impressed. Care to elaborate?

Closest I can find on Amazon costs a lot more and only has 60 LED's but despite this it has reasonable reviews.

Lots of single leds will not give out a huge amount of light.
You can get proper 5w or 10w single led spotlights. That use a single huge high power led that will be as bright as the old fashioned halogen bulbs

Thanks for your input lumsdot. I already have one of the energy saving spotlights that you refer to but wanted a light that I didn't have to wire in and that runs on solar as the site where I need it has no electric feed.

I am an electrician and they are crap, so keep paying us

The number of LEDs on it's own has no bearing on the amount of light output, it's the ( no. of LEDs x lumens output) that is the important figure. For that matter quoting 5W or 10W has no bearing either - the only figure that matters is lumens, 400-450 being around the amount of light output by a single halogen GU10. I've got a work light with 50 LEDs that kicks out more light than a single LED torch.

The best indicator as to whether these are any good, is if they mention the lumens on the box (or better still the advert), generally speaking if the lumens is low they don't mention it.

Thanks Mike,
Very informative. Will take a look.

On offer 2 for £50. Just put them up at my stables which has no mains electric and even in daylight you can tell they will be a good area light. The pir range is quoted as 12m but it was more like 6 or 7 on full sensitivity. Easy to install. Can't see any problems with them for £25. each. Even if they are crap ( which they aren't ) it's not a great deal to lose.
