While I really liked the original lights purchased in 2014, and had rated them 5 stars, the mfr has made changes to these. While at first blush they appear the same, there are subtle physical differences and the solar panel is different. That means it is somewhat, but not perfectly interchangeable with the originals. For instance, the lid to the glass can be swapped, but they don't fit and lock well. Because I had so many breaks of the original plastic parts breaking over time due to people bumping into them, I finally broke down and bought a new box in 2016 just for the purpose of getting replacement parts, after the manufacturer failed to return my phone call requesting parts. I have tried two of these new lights and it appears they ship with batteries that don't even come close to lasting all night. While my original lights will often last all night (dim, but they do last unless we have consecutive cloudy days), these can't last 2-3 hours on a full charge. The other day I removed a battery and charged it with my own charger and it lasted all night (I checked my Nest camera feed). The next day, after a full morning of bright sun, where I would expected the light to last all night, it died literally after two hours. My guess is that either 1) the new batteries are not as good as the originals or 2) the solar panels are not as effective at generating power, or both. For now, I just put the original cap onto the new glass, even though it is not a solid fit. Will update with more testing, and may buy Eneloop 950MAh batteries (these ship with 800 MAh), but for now there is no way I can recommend these due to the poor performance. Sadly, I kept these way beyond the 30 day return window before I even tested them.
These are amazing. I wasn't sure how the pewter finish would look due to the differences in the available photos, so for anyone else wondering, they are reminiscent of a dark nickel or stainless finish. The appearance is beautiful and nothing like the typical solar landscape light.
But the best part is that even on full cloudy days, they will cast a light all night long. Unlike my MicroSolar lights, they appear to diminish in intensity with lower battery capacity, as opposed to staying at full brightness until the battery is exhausted. Most of these only receive less than half a day of sunlight due to the position near the house, but they display a satisfying light all night after a sunny day, at even a distance, that looks far more impressive from the street than the cheap ones they replaced, or what any of the neighbors have.
The plastic base of one of the heads snapped, but it seems to be holding up with Gorilla glue. Be careful when adjusting by removing the head first, then replacing.
Update, Year 2: All still in operation. Not sure on multiple cloudy days they have quite the brightness at night that they did when new. The biggest issue is that over time, I have patched probably each one of these at least once, and some several times, due to either someone in my family stepping on them, or a contractor or delivery person doing it. I moved them back a few more inches from the sidewalk, which did help, as well as placing large rocks near them. Some had so much Krazy glue that I had to scrape it all off to get it to adhere. But I switched to epoxy to bind the stakes parts together, which is a bit more durable. The vendor really needs to sell replacement parts.
Lots of shade. Needed a new set of lights, took a chance on these. Love the real glass!! And the color!
Honestly, they sat in my driveway in the box, solar side up, for over 2 weeks before I got around to putting them in. Works great from the get go!! I figure about 8 hours of light a night. Perfect!
I just ordered another set !!!
