Think that particular ebay one is from China so expect a 20-40 day wait?

I'd gladly pay £6 from Aldi with a three year warranty

Just curious, but where does it say, or make you think it takes an 18650 battery

I would say by looking at the specs and the fact that it has an 18650 battery this is a better buy...... thanks, I'll have one.

I am not 100% certain, but the ones I bought off BangG00d last year do use 18650s and so do most of the ones of a similar design/look on Ebay/Ali Express.

I bought one of these off amazon looks similar and was very suprised how bright it was, good deal at this price.
3m range isn’t exactly massive, but for £6 can you really complain?

Will look in my local aldi on thur morn. Could do with 3 if they have them. Nice find.
Bought a 20 LED Mopow branded one from Amazon a week ago for £13. A bit bigger than this so hopefully the light is distributed wider but a good price nonetheless
Never used it before but seems like a good deal. Heat added...:D

I do have a similar one (Amazon) from about 4 yrs back and its bright enough to find keys by and very responsive.
Bargain at this price.
3 year warranty on ops deal
From the picture looks like it only has 10 LED's, if so the 20 LED one on Ebay is the better buy.

Bought a rechargeable DAB from Aldi with a 18650 inside, probably the same in these. Will pick one up Thurs morning and if it's easy enough to open, I shall confirm then
Does anyone know what voltage they use? I've got an infrared wildlife camera setup in the garden and the infrared light is 12v so I've been running it from an extension cable or sometimes a car battery but it would be great if I could change it to solar power and this could do the job if it's 12v as I could just switch the regular LEDs out for my infrared ones.

If they are 18650's as a few of us are guessing they might be, they put out 3.7 volts. Guess you could try wiring three 18650's in series which would put out 11.1v but I'm not sure how efficient the solar charger would be for the requirements. Might take an age to charge them all up. All speculation, I've no idea how long these things to fully charge tbh!

If there is only one 3.7v battery inside then the solar panel would likely only put out 6v
Had one about three years from Amazon, it looks a bit worn out but still lights up

If I get another, I'll put it in the greenhouse over winter to extend it's life
I have 2 similar to this one works one doesn't . the one that works is set to dim mode and goes bright when activated, i will go get some more from aldi especially with a 3 year warranty

Thanks - yeah, I'm not sure how much current my infrared light draws, will have to check that. I might get a couple of these anyway, as they'd be useful as is, then I could take one apart and experiment with it, but will most likely have to either find different infrared LEDs for it or find a different solar charging solution for my existing light.

I have a couple of these are they great. One of them is powered until battery runs out each evening. I have one set like above to see back gate so I can unlock it.Even in winter I get around an hour of light in Autumn it last a few hours, havent had it that long for Summer use
Note the dimensions before buying. One unit does not give out a lot of light.
I have one like this and it's amazing lights up my garden

Yours looks bright enough for back gate but that's 400lumens compare to these that's only 100lumens.
Will it be bright enough or to dim if only single unit used?

Thanks for the eBay link, always miss out on these store specials
Heat to the OP for the thread too
These are awesome! Would definitely recommend. Just a quick heads up though...

Remember to set up the switches how you want before mounting as they're on the back side of the unit so can't access them after. Seems obvious but easily forgotten.
If I get about 24 of these and put them in a circle, I will have perpetual light. Great.

Some have rear settings,brightness/ time on etc some don't, mine didn't, just the pin hole main on/off switch on the front...they come on when approx 10ft from the light and stay on until you leave the proximity then switch off after 30 secs.

Had these for nearly 2 years amazon.co.uk/Mpo…FCG


still as bright as when new,more expensive but quite bright.

worth a look.
Im sorry... cant understand how these lights have gotten so much heat? we have had two of these previously from groupon and they are bright for the first month or two and we ended up binning one within 2 months. The remaining one is still turning on but barely. complete waste of time.

Are they exactly the same lights?
How does it compare with this one at Homebase for £3.
homebase.co.uk/sol…883
IP44 is the only code in the description.
I looked and was small & flimsy, has anyone bought one?

That one has no PIR motion sensor, which means the light turns on at dusk and stays on until the battery runs out half way through the night. The motion sensor is definitely worth the extra money IMO.

See the fence 'marking lights' I bought from China here. Even at the silly low price of £2.27 they were not worth it.

The Ebay listing states delivery within 6 to 8 days, that does not sound like it is shipping from China to me.
a solar light for most of the uk is senseless

​yeah, only comes on when needed, like a walkway
