From Dusk but not to Dawn,
This review is from: Solar Brite Deluxe 50 LED Super Bright White Decorative Solar Fairy String Lights, choice of light effect. Ideal for Trees, Gardens, Festive Parties & More... (DIY & Tools)
After reading the raving reviews on these lights I ordered a set. They do come on at dusk but only stay on for a max of 2 hours which is very dissapointing. Although I can not fault The Sharper Edge customer service. I emailed them as with the lights not staying on all night I thought maybe I had purchased a faulty set. I was emailed back promptly apologising and advised they were posting a replacement set by first class and sent me a pre-paid packaging to return the set that was not working. Unfortunetely the replacement set also only stays on for a couple of hours too. Don't know if it might have something to do with the time of year?

I was wondering, if light levels in Winter are too low to power Christmas lights than this product would only make sense in those places in the world where they celebrate Christmas in summer. Surely lights that are meant to make the darker days of Winter Brighter should be able to charge with low levels of daylight?

I got some, when they come on ( and they don't always ) I would happily swop my 45 to 60 minutes for your 2 hours. Not impressed at all. Didn't pay much and didn't get much, but I had expected better.

There are some solar string lights for sale on Amazon which come with solar panel and mains adaptor. On cloudy days the battery can be charged by mains adaptor and comes on at night for 4-5 days without recharging. Expensive though.

Well, in the summer it's not dark very much, so when will you enjoy them?
I live in Denmark, and it doesn't get really dark before around 23 PM in the summer. Must be about the same in northern England.

We live in South West Scotland, the lights worked for the first night and stayed on for most of the night but that was it, they haven't worked since. I've moved to them where they will get maximum sunlight (not much this time of year), so far still no lights.
