Great Idea but very weak light!
on January 1, 2008
I purchased this item for a section of my yard where I do not have electricity and needed some light at night therefore the solar option was ideal resolution instead of hiring an electrician to run electrical to this area. This product was very easy to install (less than 5 minutes) but the light is very weak. It puts out a glow that is probably about 60 - 70% less intense than a conventional electric motion sensor light that uses standard bulbs. Does it provide light? Yes, for about 20 ft. max. After 20 ft then the light gets too weak to do much good and it is a blueish glow instead of a bright white. It barely fills the need I have to light a specific area that is not large but it pails in comparison to those who are used to the standard electric bulp type set up.
