Delighted with purchase.
on 12 January 2014
I purchased two of these excellent lights, having read many reviews and I'm delighted with them. I required a zero maintenance light to illuminate the side passage of my ageing parents-in-law's bungalow, following one of them having a fall recently and these fitted the bill being solar powered, aluminium and good looking. Both units worked straight from the box without the need for solar charging, although they arrived on a rare sunny day and I did eventually give them a couple of hours charging.
One comment I noted from other reviews was the poor solar charging. I wonder if this might be due to the buyer not removing the clear protective film that covers the solar panel. If left on this may have an effect on charging and it is easily missed. Also others have mentioned the lack of the 'key' mentioned in the instructions, when in fact its no more than a pin that is inserted into the tiny hole by the sensor (clearly marked 'on/off), to activate the unit initially and to deactivate it if you don't want it to work at all.
If you do these simple things, then the light performs perfectly and is far better than expected. The light spread is limited, but ideal for passages, gateways and areas where immediate light is needed. I think these lights are great value for money and highly recommend them.
