A very well-made product. Unfortunately, the distance I required between the Solar Panel and the Lighting Unit was too great for the supplied cable, even if a 5m extension cable was added. However, being a retired engineer, I knew that I could achieve the required distance using a suitably sized cable which did not cause any significant voltage drop (0.02V to be exact). I realize that I have voided my warranty, but a working solution was more important to me, and I do not expect to have any issue due to the exceptional build quality of the unit.
I always buy my solar lighting from Powerbee as I have found they have very good battery life & work all through the winter (I have a south facing garden). I bought a previous set of solar spot lights from Powerbee about 10 years ago & the battery has only just given up. I have replaced them with this new set. Easy to install & even brighter than last ones. It would be great if Powerbee offered replacement batteries for all their products.
Absolutely brilliant ,bought my first set for France , worked very well as expected with all the sunshine but was amazed when installed Uk set on a very cloudy day and they worked superbly on first night, perfect for lighting up dark gardens, walkways to sheds etc
Work as expected
This is my second buy from PowerBee and again had great service. I have mounted the light unit on the corner of the extension to cover my back garden gate down to the garage door. The other light is angled to light my back door and patio area. Absolutely perfect. Bright enough to see everything but not harsh and annoying. Enough cable to mount the solar panel high up on a south facing wall. The complete set up took about an hour to fit and seems to be of good quality. Very satisfied with every aspect of the PowerBee experience.
I felt I had to review this item I have a total of three I bought them for my holiday cottage in 2015-16 I have since moved them to my new holiday home and they still work as new.
Does the job brilliantly
Previously bought two of these, to light the front & rear of my Mother's house. I have just bought another 4 to illuminate the driveway, as Carers are in & out at all times.
I have 1 also directed at the Keysafe, which is mounted away from the house. Essential for ease of access when it's dark.
Easy to install, reliable & a very bright light when you need it. Highly recommended.
very good product.
Bought this product to replace another company's model, this was about 4 years ago. This security light is an excellent product, am going to buy another for the front of the house. By far the best light I have ever had would recommend it to anyone.
Great solar lights
Can't fault them. They seem to exceed any expectations.
This light covers my whole yard from my gate to my front door 12m. It illuminates an area of 150m sq bright enough to see everything.
Installation was a doddle as was setting up and the cable is so long I could set the panel in a really sunny spot with a metre to spare.
My only minor criticism is the PIR doesn't have adequate adjustment, it goes up or down and rotates but needs to go side to side.
This is my second unit from PowerBee. My first has operated, untouched, for over 5 yrs. I have been impressed all that time and always meant to buy a second unit.
I am very pleased that I did and can't recommend these lights enough.
Signaller Solar Security Lighting Twin Head 56 : Camping must have......
Very good little item to have with you on a camping trip. Fully charged it via the charging cable before we left, it was able to charge 2 mobiles and a PS Vita on the 1st charge. Left in the sun for most of the next day and was able to charge the PS Vita and an ipod touch.
Does need direct sunlight for it to charge but still absorbs daylight if cloudy and takes some charge.
For the price and connectors supplied it is well worth it.
Very good little item that fits easily into a sidepocket of a rucksack.
Signaller Solar Motion Light Twin Head 56 : Perfect for those tricky areas
I needed a light at the top of our garden to see how the badgers have been getting in! As there's no access to power I opted for the PowerBee, after reading the reviews. I have to say i'm very impressed with the light this can give out, ok so LEDs are a long way off from your halogen lamps, but this more than exceeds what i was hoping for. The only thing stopping me giving it 5 stars is the installation. Ridiculously tiny nut and bolt fixings means you need hands of a child to comfortably fit this. Not what you need when you're stuck up a ladder.
None the less once fitted it worked perfectly, now i can see where those pesky badgers are coming from!!
PowerBee if you're reading this, maybe think about fixing the nut to the frame of the light, would make fitting so much easier. To anyone else, i would super glue the nut in place, as i dropped one of the nuts and it was almost lost forever in the grass.
Signaller Security Light Twin Head 56 : Good product easy to fit
I was looking to replace an old 500w mains unit which was falling apart after 15 years in the Welsh rain. I decided to look for an LED replacement to do my bit for the planet. The price was reasonable and looked sturdy so I took the plunge. The unit came with enough battery charge to enable me to have a play with the controls indoors at twilight to adjust the timing and ambient light settings. The fitting of the solar panel was easy and my only gripe was that in order to mount the light's fixing bracket, you have to undo the two side nuts and remove the light. Putting the nuts screws back together, at hight, in the cold, and with one pair of hands was a bit tricky as the nut is on the inside and a bit fiddly to hold in place while trying to engage the screw. Eventually, I managed to find a bit of blue tack to hold the nuts in place and got the unit mounted. The PIR was the last thing to adjust and there was no problem adjusting for the required area of pick-up. The beam is surprisingly powerful, easily covering the required area of apx 30 square yards. The light has been working fine for three months and I would recommend it to anyone who has a spare blob of blue tack.
Signaller Solar Security Light Twin Head 56 : fantastic!
this is a solar security light that really has some power and style as well, we were very impressed with the quality of the unit, it is very bright and works well, easy to install and looks stylish
Signaller Security Lighting Twin Head 56 : Worth the money and electric free
Bought this light Jan 2014, I had to charge the 18650 batteries once at the end of February as my back garden is East facing so the panel faces South East and only gets 50% of a potential charge. That said nearly 12 months on and I have never had to touch the batteries again much to my surprise. Duller illumination than a halogen but no heat emitted either, which was like feeling your money burn when using an old fashioned halogen electric light. The reason why I am back on is that I am about to buy a second light to run a couple of meters from my first for DIY working at Dusk to increase illumination, may as well, after the initial purchase price there is no running cost!
Signaller Solar Security Twin Head 56 : so good
Brought for my brother as a house warming gift no street lights in his estate I am well impressed with the scope of positions that they can be adjusted to help light up a very large area nice and bright
Signaller Solar Security Light Twin Head 56 : another perfect light
I have just fitted my 3rd set of these excellent lights. This one is sited on the end of a new carport. One lights the inside of the carport and the other bulb lights the way to the back gate,where one of the previously bought ones lights the way through the gate and the last pair light up the back porch area. I can't praise them enough and it's great to get power from the sun instead of the electricity company! Buy with confidence.
Security Lighting Twin Head 56 : Good value and effective product
Was a bit dubious about a Solar Powered Security Light, but I am pleasantly surprised. Easy to put up and easy to adjust. Light is not super-bright as you get from a mains powered one but that is to be expected, ergo not a massive illumination range. There is a higher powered model for slightly more money if that's what you are after. That said, I have just purchased another one of these so I do like the product.
My only gripe would be the look of the lamp holder itself. It looks like it could do with bulking up a bit. The two lights themselves look cool though and are individually directionally adjustable.
SMD Security Light Twin Head 56 : Good Product
I bought this product to add security to my off road parking. I live near a secondary school and my car has had mischief done to it a few times, nothing serious just kids being silly. So i bought this light needing solar power as I have no way of getting power to the parking spot. In the first week this light already detered a young lad from setting off the alarm, the look on his face was priceless when the light lit him up (i got a security camera as well). The light comes with some tuning options which work well but require some trial and error. The sensitvity and range of the detector is great, it works 20 meters for me.
Just a little niggle, the swivel on the solar panel is not perfect you can only make it go 45deg from the axis, if you dont have a south facing vertical wall you will have to mount the bracket horizontally (on top of a wall/roof), you cannot for instance face the panel south while mounted on a east facing wall.
Good light, works perfectly, bright enough, and charges perfectly even on dull days (south facing mounted). Delivery was fine as well.
Signaller Solar Security Light Twin Head 56 : Great Product impressive performance
I bought this to replace a dud light at the bottom of my drive, which needed new cable and I didn't want the hassle & expense also been a bit of a tree hugger I wanted to try out solar. This product is really good, installation is really easy and only takes a few mins, it gives a good bright light and charges up well even on dull days. A number of my neighbours have been impressed and will buy them too
Signaller Solar Security Light Twin Head 56 : Excellent. Buying more.
I ordered two of these to light up a route through my garden. They work a treat giving light out to a good distance, and the PIR works really well. Thay are so good, I have just ordered another two (after nearly four months of constant winter use).
Signaller LED Light Twin Head 56 : perfect
I have two of these lights and they are excellent. one lights up a 3mt sq bach porch and the other one lights up a dangerous step area. Buy with confidence I recommend to all who see them
Outdoor Security Light Twin Head 56 : Exceeded expectations
Delivered within three days and installed in 20 minutes using the 6 fixing screws for quick wall mounting. The lamps are very bright, lighting up our two cars at the side of the house. Full range of controls for ambient light levels, sensitivity, and switching duration make it an ideal alternative to mains powered lights. Fully charged even during gloomy November weather.
LED Security Light Twin Head 56 : Peace of Mind
I bought this product after having recently had an attempted burglary to my home (and several of my neighbours had too).
Very impressed with the light output, for such a small unit, and the two adjustable spotlights are very handy to cover a much wider area in both directions.
The main selling point for me, however is that it is solar powered. I'm very eco-conscious, and as well as cutting down on the electricity bill, it also saved having to drill through a brick wall to plug it in!
At this price, you cannot go wrong to give you peace of mind.
Signaller Solar Cell Security Light Twin Head 56 : Excellent Product
Wow, this light exceeded my expectations. This is an excellent light. I needed to light up an area at the back of my garden so I could see my puppy at night (toilet training). This is absolutely perfect and was really surprised how much light it gave out. Having two lights means that you can direct the lamps in totally different directions. Great value for money.
p.s. lead to the solar panel could be slightly longer, but managed to find a spot that had the most sunlight.
Outdoor Security Light Twin Head 56 : excellent functionality
I ordered on Wednesday and you kindly delivered before the weekend, installtion was much easier than I thought, and I was very pleased with the functionality which I thought was excellent, in the tough times ahead this security light will be much loved.
