Everyone's heard the expression `cheap and cheerful' and it certainly applies to these fairy lights - in the best possible way! One of the least expensive solar-powered versions you can buy, but these little fellas are great - bright little points of light that really cheer up your house or garden when the night comes.
OK; first the practical stuff. Assembly couldn't be easier - there really isn't any! Just fit the ground spike (or the wall mount if you're using that), wind out the string, arrange it artistically around your plants or whatever, and switch on. There's a good bit of wire before the first of the lights, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a suitable place to mount the solar cell as per the instructions. Granted you'll have to wait until it goes dark to actually see them in operation, but that's about all there is to it.
Now the positives. They hard to beat for adding a bit of fun to a dark corner, where running conventional lights and electric cables would be impractical, undesirable or just down-right impossible - but then that's true of any solar-powered anything. What makes these lights really good though is firstly, for their size they belt out a fair old bit of punch, there's 120 of them and you can chose between `on' and `pulsating' modes. All in all, they add up to a fun package for a very modest outlay.
Any negatives? Well, I suppose if you were looking for lights that look particularly decorative when they're NOT on (during the day), then they probably aren't for you - but by that token, nor are most of the other versions of solar fairy lights around either (not at any price) so that probably doesn't count. No, sorry - struggling to find anything I didn't like about them.
I know they say you get what you pay for - and it's usually true - but in this case I'd have to disagree. Don't let the low price put you off; these little lights really are a bargain!
