I continue to see solar products offering many LEDs, stating long lighting times at very attractive prices....Please keep the following points in mind. 1). is the solar panel large enough to charge the battery fully each day? 2). does the battery have enough capacity to work the following night if it rains during the day? 3). is the light constant brightness while it is on, or does it fade to nothing each night? If it fades, the battery life will be short. 4). is there enough light from the lights, or do you need to use many many pieces on your yard? Is the purpose of the lights to bring attention to themselves by being so plentiful or is the light to provide illumination for your pathway or yard by itself? 5). Is the product built to stand the elements, or do you need to replace the lights every 4-6 months?
