Upgraded Solar Lights 2-in-1 Waterproof Outdoor Landscape Lighting Spotlight
While the adjustable solar panel and up to 12 hours of illumination are attractive features of this outdoor solar spotlight, users reported the battery life tended to fade over time. A one-year warranty and decent customer service can ease the sting of receiving a nonworking product.
Outdoor Stainless Steel Solar Lights, 12-Pack
Users who get 12 fully operational Sogrand lights are apparently pretty lucky, as many report 1 or more lights in the package not working. The stainless steel spikes are attractive. However, dim and nonworking lights were frequently reported, making this an iffy purchase.
Solar-Powered LED Garden Lights, 6-pack
At this price point, solar garden lights should be sturdier than these units, which tend to fall apart when placed or lifted into a new position. They provide adequate ambient illumination, but battery life fades quickly, leaving users in the dark.
