Batteries not required. Even on a cloudy winter's day, the solar panel will store enough power in the battery to run the unit throughout the night. What size area does it cover? This depends on the type of ground you've got. Chalky ground transmits noise more effectively than sand, for example. We expect it to cover up to a 20 metres (65ft) radius around the mole repeller (13,273 sq feet) (1200 sq metres). Why choose the "Advanced" Mole repeller? The Advanced Solar mole repeller has high-spec solar panels and an aluminum pole. The aluminum poles give more durability and makes it easier to insert in the soil. More importantly, aluminium is a better conductor of the repelling vibrations. The advanced solar mole repeller also comes with a longer pole (38cm) than most mole repellers, so it can be pushed deeper into the ground. Moles usually burrow low below ground level so with a longer pole, you can get the device into the ground further. This means it is more effective in removing moles from your garden. Unlike many Mole repellers this unit comes pre-charged, please allow at least 30 days in the soil for the unit to do its work. When the device is working, you'll hear a bleeping sound every 30 seconds or so - this is not the noise the moles hear, it's so you can be sure the device is working. Where do I position the device? The units should not be inserted amongst the moles or they will scatter in all directions. It should be used in the same way as a sheepdog "herds" sheep - to guide the moles in the desired direction slowly "following" them with the unit as they move away from it. You may find that in the early stages, molehills appear more frequently and even close to the unit. This indicates that it is beginning to have an effect and the moles are becoming disorientated so do not panic!! 12cm diameter by approx. 44cm long

UPDATE August 2011: The vibrating component has definately packed up, although the LED light still comes on at night so the solar cells are still OK. Not sure if I'd buy another...maybe.
I have made a number of inquiries and all these devices seem to have the same size solar panel. Perhaps those people that find they work live in sunny places???
For some reason the batteries seem to re-charge using the solar panel for a couple of months and then they're DEAD. I haven't tried to charge them from the mains, so maybe this is what I need to do, but frankly should I be having to do this.
The glass around the solar panels also seem to leak into the spike which is sunk into the ground and once you've water sitting in the bottom of the spike then of course the connections which emit the noise then become corroded and don't work.
I've had other makes which seem to work fine, so either I've a bad batch or these are just rubbish !!
Perhaps I'm stating the obvious, but make sure to place them in a sunny spot for maximum effect.
