Much Cheaper if you purchase it directly from the WakaWaka website
on January 14, 2013
First, I must say I had great doubt about this product since most of the reviews here are from people who received it for product review vs those who actually purchase it to use on a daily basis. Also, if you purchase it directly from the [...] wakawaka 4light. com, it is only $60 for 2 grey ones with free shipping within the US.
I have quite a few solar gadgets all around my house. This is the best solar light currently in the market mainly due to its brightness and duration. I used to like the d.light S10 and S1 until the WakaWaka came out last year. The WakaWaka has 2 LED's instead of one like the S1 and S10. I have 4 WakaWaka lights on every night in those 3 rooms that I spend mostly in at night and I hardly even have to turn on any light. If you shine it on a white wall, the whole room just lights up. It is great bright ambient light.
According to their website, the internal battery should last about 3 years for daily use. Hope this helps.
Update: 11/7/13. I've been using all my 3 lights every single night since last December and they are still going strong w/ no issues whatsoever. I took them to camping, hiking, etc over the summer. I usually set them at the 3rd or 4th setting and they last well over 12 hours and they are still on. Just order a few more to give out as gifts.
Update: 5/24/14. All my WakaWaka lights are still going strong every single night after almost 1.5 years. The few that I gave away as gifts to my family members are all working great. However, I'm no longer recommending this solar light as someone else came out with a much better product. The Sun King Pro simply blows the Wakawaka light away in every aspect. It is available here on Amazon.
