Bought a set to try it out. I wanted to put around our gazebo but lighted string is only 13' and rest is cord to solar panel. Description didn't mention that. That means I would have to buy 3 more sets. Thats way more than what I want to spend. I love the look of it though. Looks great during the day, looks better at night because each bulb is different color to match with the lantern. Make sure you match the color of bulb to the color of lantern when installing. I didn't do that before I lit it up so had to reinstall, which is a pain. Very durable though. It's not bright but still look nice. I bought another set to string them along side roof of our garage. It shine enough to where you can see the ground. Came with 600mah rechargeable battery but I put in my 2000mah battery instead. Lights comes on sun set around 8:30. I was up at 5:30am once and I was surprise it was still lit. Have it up for about 3 weeks now and I noticed couple of the blue lights are starting to dim but rest are fine. The color of lanterns are starting fade a little from the weather. I'm still happy with my purchase. If it'll last for couple seasons, I would buy again to replace.
I bought two of these, one worked, but the one does not. I also noticed that this item doesn't have a rechargeable battery. If they work, it will be a good background lights on an evening chat under a pergola in my backyard.
I basically ordered these for the colors on the porch at night. Not to light up the porch or anything, but the colors are not that good because the light is very weak. I bought 2 more from other sellers on **** and the lights are brighter and the solar screen is at an angle and can be in yard toward better sunlight. This one is not angled at all and the sunlight may not reach the plate. The others that I ordered are great...bright colored and much more light. Don't know who Sears got their from but they need to give them back and start over.
For the price you can't beat these little lights. They liven up your space in an instant. Bought 2 sets and going to get a third. The quality far exceeded my expectations for the price.
Great item for the price, Hard to beat for $18, We bought 4 sets and they make the patio look very friendly and inviting after the sun goes down
