60 bright LED lights powered by solar energy
Powerful LED Lighting

The Sunforce 60 LED Solar Motion Security Light features 60 super-bright, white LEDs with an 850 lumen output. The LED light delivers up to 8 hours of illumination (non-continuous) on a single charge.

Up to 8 hours of illumination per charge

Easy, do-it-yourself installation
Powerful Detection

Enjoy peace of mind with a detection distance of 30 feet, and a detection range of 180 degrees. It's powerful security coverage for nearly all driveways, porches, decks, sheds, and more.

Customize Your Solar Light’s Settings

This solar motion detector features 3 control dials to customize your light to match your needs. LUX (light level) determines the level of darkness that must be reached for the light to turn on. TIME sets the duration of illumination time. And SENS (Sensitivity) determines the range of motion detection.

Extending You Battery Life & Light Ideal Settings

In order to extend your battery life, please follow the recommendations below:

LUX Setting: Set this dial knob towards the MOON icon (counterclockwise) for its ideal night-time operation. This allows the batteries to recharge during daytime.

Main Switch: Set the switch to the AUTO position for its ideal motion-activated operation. The ON position allows you to run the light continuously for a limited time (approximately 45 minutes). Please be aware that this setting will deplete the battery and extra charging time may be required.

Extra Charging Time: Put the main switch in the OFF position and allow the batteries to recharge for two to three days. This may be necessary if the battery has been depleted due to continuous bad weather conditions (low light), extended day-time use (LUX on Sun icon) or continuous use in the ON position.

Easy DIY Installation

No wiring is required to install the Sunforce 60. Simply choose your desired location to mount the solar light and solar panel and have it set up within minutes with the included mounting hardware.

About Amorphous Solar Technology

Solar panels convert sunlight into an electric current, they do not store power. Amorphous solar panels are created by spraying silicon onto glass in very thin layers, and are commonly known as thin film solar panels. This process allows them to be better at generating electricity in all lighting conditions, including cloudy or shady environments. Amorphous solar panels are best for smaller output needs, temporary set ups, and areas that do not receive predictable sun conditions. These solar panels ensure that your solar lights will work anywhere.

Pros:
Nice, bright light - better than expected.
Adjustable settings for: 1. what constitutes dusk when the light begins to motion sense; 2. how sensitive the IR detector is to movement, and; 3. how long the light remains on.
Selectable modes for auto, on, or off.
IR sensor is adjustable up / down and left / right, separate from light.
Power cord from solar cell is very long and gives you more flexibility on installation locations.

Cons:
Mounting hardware (not the units themselves) is not galvanized or otherwise weather resistant (e.g. stainless). I used a silicon based caulk to cover screw heads and seams.
Light is only adjustable up / down so getting the light to face where you want may involve mounting additional hardware.
Adjustable settings have considerable hysteresis. (I was up and down a ladder many times)
I bought three of these; two of them took considerable time (15+ minutes) to start turning off in Auto mode, even with the sensitivity and time adjustments minimized. The third worked as soon as the switch was turned. All three had been given the same amount of time to charge beforehand (5 days).

I took one star for setup because I had almost given up on two of the three purchased. The adjustment settings were initially unresponsive and the lights just stayed on in Auto mode. When they finally turned off, everything started working as indicated. The adjustment knobs are not linear, so I recommend getting a second person to perform a walking test so that the first can stay on the ladder to tweak the settings. Also recommend using some sealant on the mounting hardware to keep it from rusting.

THE PROBLEM
After reading many of the customer reviews posed in this forum, it is clear that many of these "made in China" devices suffer an early demise after only a few weeks. Here is a preventative measure to try before installing your Sunforce solar light.

I have concluded - based upon the negative reviews herein and my own personal inspection of the Sunforce device - that the failures are most likely due to water intrusion. Even if the lamp is installed in a dry location (such as a shed) the solar panel will still be exposed to the weather. Here is how to make your device a bit more robust with a tube of black RTV sealant and some electrical tape.

This procedure will likely void the warranty but in my mind it is well worth it. Warranties are nice when honored but the time spent un-installing, packaging, returning, and re-installing a failed $35 product is still an inconvenience. If you will be up and down a ladder, spending more time re-testing and re-adjusting the motion sensor, that inconvenience quickly becomes a major headache. Your time is valuable. Will the replacement unit work any better or fail the same way? Also, bear in mind other reviewers have stated less-than-satisfactory results in obtaining warranty service from the manufacturer. Another hassle and wasted time you don't need. So an ounce of prevention may be worth a pound of cure, even if it means voiding the warranty.

TESTING DEVICE FOR "Dead-On-Arrival" CONDITION
Before beginning the waterproofing procedure, you will want to ensure you did not receive a defective unit out of the box. If you did receive a defective unit, return it within the 30 day window. Once the waterproofing modifications are made the unit cannot be returned.

This light is very easy to set up and seems sturdy. The light housing itself is metal instead of plastic which I prefer. I replaced included rechargeable batteries with higher rated AA mHA ones. I charged the light inside for a couple of days and mounted to the outside deck. The motion sensor is sensitive and accurate. The light is small but illuminates better than expected. It lights approximately 200-300 square foot area very well. I don't know how it will handle in the long run. Our Wyoming winters can reek havoc on outdoor products, but the product is performing very well right now. Light includes customizable control settings for motion radius, light sensitivity and illumination duration. The only con would be that the mounting bracket only allows the light to pivot up and down and not side to side, so this does limit mounting options....the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5.

I mounted one of these above my front door to light up the stoop at night, and one inside my 8x12 shed. They work great in both locations. Construction is sturdy, but the light only moves up and down and not right to left, so mounting options are indeed limited. I've had them up and running for about a week and so far so good. They are brighter than I was expecting.

Update (March 22, 2012): these have been going strong for almost a year now. The one on my front porch works like a champ, and the one in my shed is bright enough to illuminate the entire 8x12 space. For the money, these are a great bargain. Changed from 4 to 5 stars.

Update (Nov 6, 2013): they are still working as great as the first day I installed them!

Update (July 6, 2014): one reviewer out here lists steps for modifying these to keep moisture out. Do that if you must, but mine are both exposed to the full force of South Dakota Summers and Winters and neither have failed. The one in my shed gets plenty hot and still works great. I have not modified either unit and they are happily illuminating my porch and shed. Well worth the $$$ in my opinion.
