The solar shed light can be programmed to provide either 2 hours of outdoor lighting using 5 LEDs or 4 hours of light with 10 LEDs. This solar powered shed light is easy to install and features ABS construction with a 5m cable.

5 leds = 2 hours
10 leds = 4 hours

Surely the other way around? :oops:

If this is as efficient as all those other solar powered garden lights it will be usless

Has anybody bought one of these I would love to know how bright it is

Still a good price but you would probably get more light from a couple of candles

Not if the 10 Leds where on half power providing the same amount of light

That's what I thought.

Then they would be on for the same amount of time

By that logic,

20 leds = 8hrs
320 leds = 128hrs

we need more LEDs!!!

voted cold, appreciate the heads up, but my reason being I play with a few LED lighs both big flood types all the way down to solar shed lights, I have a tube light with 24 leds, which will stop you banging your toe in the total pitch dark but nothing to work by, ..really just locate then get out.
So this light with a handful of led's that aren't CREE or Luxeon ((for which you'd be paying much more)) is a bit of a waste of time imho, to get better light you need to pay £30-50 at the bare minimum, even then it will not light more than a few metres.
good small area / loft led floods are available now expect to pay £60+ from germany (also capable of uplighting outside etc)!
Units such as the "centurion" & NIghthawk I use in my dog run & dark access points on the home, they are capable of lighting to the standard of NOT having to scrape dog-bombs off your feet! for instance.

I got got one of these from Maplins, the solar panel on this light is bigger than most and seems pretty efficient. The light is bright enough for a shed.

This light surprisingly, unlike my other solar lights seems to work all year round

i bought two of these elsewhere with 5 or ix LEDs in each (i think), to light up my 12' x 8' allotment shed, and they're not very good at all. They were never very bright, and then one stopped working and the other is now really dull for some reason. The ones on sale here may be a lot better, but in my opinion, you're far better off with a paraffin lamp; which is what i immediately switched back to! you can get a great paraffin lamp for about a fiver, and a 4ltr bottle of paraffin for about a fiver at my local DIY shop. A single lamp is much brighter than both of these put together, and the fuel last for AGES.

I once had a solar powered shed light. It lasted 3 months them i promptly threw it in the bin. Complete waste of time.

Buy a good torch for this money and it will be 1000 times brighter and actually work.

Considering something like this for my shed, but doubtful of the power for reasons already stated. Saw Home & Bargain do an outdoor double plug socket on a spike with 15m cable for a tenner, gonna run one of those from my garage and put proper lights in I think.

I have one of these from Maplin. Was only a tenner or so.

Perfectly good enough for the shed. To be fair we tend to only use it occasionly (putting garden tools away when it has got too dark to use them) but it provides plenty of light for that.
Can't comment on more heavy use.

I picked up the one from Maplin when it was also £10.

Was a little disappointed by its low output although I wasnt expecting too much. There was just enough light for seeing where to put things, but not enough light to rummage around or perform a task by.

FWIW, mine went back the next day. Worthwhile if you buy 3 or 4 units, but then there will be much better solutions for this sum of money.

i got one from woolworths for a fiver, i'm happy enough with it, but my shed has a window in it anyway.
Gives everything a blue tint but hey at least I can then see it which is the point. Anyway i'm not going to be in the shed for 2 hours

As for a torch I have one of those kinetic ones
