Energy efficient. After six hours of charging in the sun, the faux candles will stay lit for up to 10 hours. Waterproof in rain or snow. Easy to hang. Can be used on a tabletop as well.
Some users thought they would be larger. Since they come in a set of two, may need several sets for a complete look.
Uses two rechargeable batteries, which can be charged via USB. Unit will snugly fit any standard umbrella pole. If highest setting is too bright – but you don't want to use dim setting – just flip it upside down to diffuse the light.
Some users would like to see a remote with the unit. Can't really close the umbrella without removing it from the pole.
Levels include dim, bright, and super bright, adjusted with simple button push. Super bright allows for reading and playing cards. No extra tools needed to clamp onto umbrella or tent poles. Four AA batteries – not included – power the light for a long time.
Not waterproof and shouldn't be exposed to the elements. Users have received light with no installation instructions and have to look them up online.
Users love how they flicker like real candles without the fire hazard. After charging all day, the lights will glow all night. Make great accents not only for umbrellas, but for garden paths, patio tables, and even hanging from windows indoors.
Not nearly as bright as lights that attach directly to poles. Designed more for decoration than functionality.
Light has two settings. Recharges with a wall plug or by using a USB charger and computer or phone. LED lights don't attract bugs like other types of lights and candles will. High setting provides enough light to cover even larger patio tables.
Have to remove from pole to close umbrella. Because the switch is high when in place, some users would like a remote included.

A patio umbrella can cool your outdoor living space during the day, and with the addition of patio umbrella lights it can brighten your space at night. These lights attach to your patio umbrella, giving you even more time to spend outside. Some lights hang from the umbrella with clips, while others attach to the umbrella pole. Depending on your personal preference, you can choose between battery-operated versions, rechargeable versions or solar-powered versions. Versatility is key, and some lights can be used on tabletops, camping tents, or other outdoor spots as well. If you plan on leaving the umbrella lights outside, they should be designated as waterproof.
