Customer Comments We Frequently Hear at Trade Shows:
Battery, I thought these were solar lights? The solar panel converts sunshine to electricity during the day. The battery is used to store the charge until dark, and then the light will turn on using the power stored in the battery.
Solar lighting doesn't work long. A typical buyer's remorse for poorly designed product sold only on price. Free-Light products install in minutes, light for hours and last for years. We have no such problems. And if we do, we make it right!
The batteries cost more than the light. While competitors might use expensive, hard to find batteries, Free-Light sells batteries at close to cost, to keep your battery costs very reasonable.
The lights work okay for the first month, then half of them stop working. Free-Light products are designed for year round use while most others are meant solely for summer operation. If the solar light you buy needs 10 hours of direct sunshine to fully charge its small battery, it will not work properly when there is only 5 hours of sun! And this is a big reason for most of the disappointment with standard solar products. They simply are not capable of working other than summer time.
They start out bright but fade to little blue dots. Free-Light products are designed to provide a constant brightness level related to battery charge. The light intensity is adjusted should the battery charge become low.
You need so many to give you any kind of light it takes away from the beauty of the garden or the house. Free-Light products put out enough soft natural light that often you only need one or two per application, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of your garden and not be focused on the lights.
My solar lights can only light up a couple of feet at best. Some Free-Light products can light up to 60' and be visible from as far as 400 yards.
We don't like solar lights because they cause light pollution. We have several models that offer 100% of the light directed to the ground while most models turn off after several hours to leave the stars shining brightly in the skies.
Solar lights don't work in shade. No argument here, solar panel efficiency in shade is too low for effective operation. But, we have several products that now feature a remote solar panel allowing more flexibility in placement.
Solar lights need many hours of sunlight. This is true of the average solar light but Free-Light doesn't design average lights. Free-light products provide proper operation with as little as 3 hours of direct sunlight per day. Any more sunlight is stored in the battery for the next nights use.
