3.0 out of 5 stars Good lights, shame about the batteries, 18 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blingstring Outdoor Solar Fairy Lights with 120 LED Bulbs (Garden & Outdoors)
The lights themselves are fine. Nice and bright with enough bulbs/cable to give good coverage on a small conifer tree (kept around 10-12ft high) in my front garden. The flashing setting is good too and hopefully uses less energy than always on so they last longer. But.....

I followed the instructions on the included leaflet and pointed the solar panel south at an optimal angle for our low winter sun at this time of year. I also let it charge for 4 days (manual says at least 3) before using them (2 of which actually had decent sunlight), so I was a bit miffed when they didn't stay on for very long... going off by the time I got home around 8pm one evening. So I have just tested charging them in my intelligent battery charger AccuCell BC-700 / 9 in 1 intelligent Battery Charger and it turns out that one of the batteries is in fact a dud, stopping charging at approx 125mAh instead of the rated 1000mAh.

Get what you pay for I guess. If the batteries had been ok I would give this item 4 stars, so probably worth a punt if you are after some decent fairy lights for a small outdoor tree without wanting the hassle of wiring them up to the mains.

Hi
someone with the same problem as me, never buy solar again at this scale.
