3.0 out of 5 stars Does not work on overcast days., 9 Jan. 2012
This review is from: PowerBee ® Endurance Deluxe Solar Fairy Lights 120 WHITE Quality Superbright LED's Multi Function Indoor / Outdoor Garden, Party, Tree Lights for ALL YEAR round use including winter (White, 1 strand of 11.9 meters) (Kitchen & Home)
This item does not work on completely overcast days, so was useless for Christmas Day this year, the reason I purchased it. But it only takes limited sunshine to get it working for a while in the evening (not all night long as mentioned in some of the reviews). A good sunny day might keep the lights going longer, but we haven't had a good sunny day in the last 3 weeks since lights installed. The solar collector is located in a prime position and facing due south. The cables and the collector are good and very easy to install. I still think it's a great idea, I'll be keeping it in the garden all year long and it's pleasant when the lights come on, but if you want guaranteed lights for a specific evening in winter, better to go electric. Delevery was prompt.

I am about to purchase and I think your comment is unduly negative. You could have charged up yourself on dull winter days.......?

This is a very informative review. Having purchased 1 pack of these last year, I have been waiting for a reduction in the price, and am back today to buy 3 more for my trees.
I suspect that Mrs. R. Stoyanovitch was not aware that the vendor has added the "Spring / Summer" bit since Wandering Mind's purchase, as this time last year they were being marketed as an all year round product.
At the height of the summer, they will work on a flashing setting all night. but as soon as the best has passed, they fail to reach the morning, and during the winter weeks, I have had days where I didn't see them come on, and other days where they don't flash. I have to then reset the pattern of flashing at the controller. I suspect this is because it forgets the pattern setting when the batteries are completely flat.
