Now long does it last between charges.

Now long does it last between charges.



It's solar powered so gets charged by the sun. Ideally, it needs to be put in a place that receives full sun for a fair few hours a day or it won't charge well enough to function properly.

Both class AND charm??????? Wow must buy dozens and become as classy and charming as a classy, charming person.
What size is the battery inside and is it Li-Ion - you could probably fit an extra battery for longer lasting time on.

The problem with these is the solar panel and the battery size - either one too small then its useless with the sun we get in the UK.

Still a bit of heat as thats a good price.
Cheap nasty crap that are not weather proof, due to poor design & will be knackered & rusty within 12 months

Can anyone recommend a good quality PIR LED security light to provide light to my driveway? Ive got power to mains there. I’ve tried a couple from screwfix before, had problems after a while with them flickering on and off continually, gave my neighbour an epileptic fit

No, it's definitely a light as stated in the original post!

Is that the new rusting plastic I've not heard of yet then?

Nope plastics have got to be phased out now. This one's the new non-rusting papier-mache.

I had the the same dilemma. After trying many different types, i ended up buying some nice NONE PIR lights with glass top & bottoms, then bought LED bulbs (12 watt) with daylight sensor and they work perfect, even though my house has a huge over hang above lights. They come on at dusk & off at dawn. Fitted 3 yrs ago. Dont get the cfl bulbs, they dont work.

No its not "numpty", its the electrical connectors inside, which u have clearly also not heard of, hence: poor build + water ingress = rusty battery terminals & wiring!

If you really want one of these, they are only a fiver in £ land, slightly different design, but still the same crappy quality. You can have 2 x crappy solar lights for one ... one for this year, another for next year when it no longer works.....
Can anyone comment on the actual quality of the light?

Yeah but thats true of virtually every solar device being sold - you need to do the work yourself to waterproof them - i use silicone sealant - setup a solar powered dummy cam 4 years ago and its still going strong - silicone seal the solar panel as thats where the water gets in and around any battery compartments or basically anything where rain can get it - Bigclivedotcom uses a special waterproof IR tape to seal his solar stuff! He is the top guy on youtube for solar gear!

Had a look at this today and the solar panel is too small - you would need to jerry rig a bigger solar panel and connect it in series with the one supplied.

And no i dont need it i just like to reverse engineer the electronics inside and re-purpose them for other things like my range of Japanese solar waterfalls and rock fountains etc
