    60 LED Solar Security Light

    On sale until March 10.

    We have a few of these on the property and they've held up well in Pacific Northwest weather. A key consideration is to mount the solar panel to maximize the capture of solar energy, especially on gray days.

    I picked one up this morning. The box looks cheesey like most HF packaging, lol. It looks like it will make a nice driveway light though.

    We have two of these in our shed at our beach lot. County said we couldn't run power to it, so these supply light inside. They come with just enough wire to run from the peak of the roof, down behind the gutter, and through a hole in the eave to the light inside. So far they have survived Long Beach weather for four years...they're getting a little weak now, but they are what they are. I've been pleased.

    Castlerocker, just a heads up reminder that most solar lights have replaceable rechargeable batteries. Usually a quick in and out with new eneloops and lightly soap and water clean the solar panel will have one working as new (or better as the batteries in these tend to be suck). You may already know this, but just incase you don't.

    I looked this up and here's a guy who replaced one:
    FYI, they do make 4 AA battery holders that are waterproof.
