Looks like it is made by Powerbee, for the price considering its solar powered is very good delivered. Mostly very good reviews, maybe not ideal for very exposed areas but could use transparent sealant to improve rain resistance.

not a big fan of solar lights , useless in winter and certainly would not use as security light , also would love to know where the Will light for 16 hours once fully charged by the sun maybe in egypt.

For some people like me who just wants a non-wired lamp to provide light to a dark area outside my garage then for £11.99 its a good deal and worth a punt, Im certainly not expecting 500 W Halogen perfromance but the reviews seem promising on the actual light emitted.

Anything that takes money away from the scandalous electrical companies gets heat from me.

Even if it is just pennies a year..

This is a very good price for this unit - I've been looking at it from various places such as The Solar Centre but they are all £20-25.

The problem with solar lights are that the panel needs to get direct sunlight for a decent amount of time each day. Having recently moved into a new build in the countryside I got a light similar to this to put on the side of the shed next to where I part my car at the far end of the garden. When I put it up a month or so ago it worked well and got enough sun light, trouble now is that as the sun isn't rising as high in the sky the panel doesn't get direct sunlight (or not for more than 1 hour a day) so the batteries are not getting charged so the light stopped working a week or so ago.

So if you can get enough direct sunlight to it it will work well (if you seal the unit with silicon sealant) but if unsure don't bother.

Oh and the 16hours of light thing will be if the timer is set to the minimum ie 5 seconds each time it comes on - not continuous light for 16 hours.

Agree on all you say, the price is very good really. Ive placed the order, said 2-4 weeks but now saying delivery will be sooner- certainly save on electricity and hopefully will give enough light at night when I need it.

I'm gonna put this in the kitchen cabinet and scare the hell out of my wife.
Will try to film it and post on youtube.
Wish me good luck

Awesome. I was looking at these this weekend. Nearly bought the same unit at £24.99

Now £19
