This is my third solar light from the SolarCentre, all of which have been fantastic.

The light arrived quickly and was easy to charge and install. The instructions could be followed with common-sense, though the lettering isn't right: The Fixing Bracket is (A), The Parasol light is (B) and U-bracket is (C).

The best thing about these lights is that they are completely mains free. I installed the light in the shed, which has no other means of lighting it. You would probably want more than this if you were working for any extended periods in your shed. The lights are really bright, perfect for when you just need to grab something from the shed at night.

I had this light in my shed for a a few months now. When I first connected it to the solar panel the light would not come on, however on disconnecting the wire to the panel, the light would work perfectly. I had followed the instructions to allow at least 7 days for it to charge and tried it again and it would not work.I later realized that it works fine in darkness when connected to the solar panel and is sensitive to light and will not work in day light.The light is self is sufficient to light up a shed and I hope it will have a long life span.

I was somewhat sceptical when I ordered this light as it was my first solar powered garden light but I have to say that I am absolutely delighted with the Vortex.

I installed the light in my shed with the panel mounted on the roof, it was all very easy, and I have to say that I am amazed with how bright this light is. I have not tested the light to see how long it will stay on for continuously but having followed the instructions when I installed it, it has provided more than enough light for several hours work in the shed without fault.

If this light is typical of the quality of solar lights provided by the solar centre then I shall certainly be installing more solar lighting around my garden.

Many thanks.

Brilliant illumination for my small animals run in winter. Great output and easy installation. It's a bit distracting when the lights flash as charging starts but at least I know when dawn is. Great light

I don't have a shed so I couldn't test that function, but as a parasol light it's great. It has a removable centre which allows the light to slide up the pole. It provides more than enough light to see your beer on the garden table.
Great product, perfect for what I need it for.

love the idea of not needing to run mains power down to our new shed, fits very easily , well made and with a choice of lighting levels on the box and a good length of lead from the solar panel, only one small niggle I have noticed with this is that the light unit will not work when plugged into the solar panel , once unplugged it works fine , and there are no instructions or troubleshooting tips in the box to help either as I said its a small thing

The light is sufficiently bright enough to locate whatever it is you're looking for. I bought a 10 metre long extension lead as my shed is in the shade, you need an extension lead for a 2.1mm centre pin this allowed me to route the cable through my garage to a suitable south facing wall so that the panel faces the sun. I found the extension lead on ebay £3.19 inc postage.

What the advert doesn't explain is that the light will not switch on while the unit is being charged so if like me you need a light to operate during daylight hours you will need to either disconnect the solar panel by unplugging it or splice into the lead and insert an in-line switch which will of course nullify the warranty I imagine.

I would still buy another if the need arise.

I wrote to Solar Centre on this matter and their reply was to inform me that these lights are designed to work after dark and that if they are used in daylight the batteries could become depleted.

I have bought four of these over the past few years. The first one worked for nearly two years but unfortunately the others packed up after one summer. They have a very bright light which stays on for about 15-20 seconds. The sensor has quite a long reach which was great for when dogs went into garden.
