Work better than described
Due to stock delays, my set didn’t arrive until December, so I’ve only seen them work in winter. Set them up so the solar panel is roughly south facing, and even in winter they are always still lit in the morning.
It’s also possible to charge the battery via USB if you can’t put the solar panel in an ideal position and want the lights to be on all night (though I’ve not needed this).
Great So Far
Only had them a week, but they certainly seem very good quality, and are looking great. Just bought another item from you as am reassured it will be as good!
We bought these before Christmas for the garden. Followed the instructions and put the solar panel in as much light as possible for 8 hours (i think) before turning on. I had them on all night every night leasing up to Christmas and after for the 12 days. Every morning they were still on. The different settings are good, even though some of them make you feel like you are in a rave!!
But all in all - if you have decent sunlight - we only have direct winter sun in the morning til about midday - then they work really well. great purchase and kids loved them
bought these after reading some reviews on them and they are fantastic!! really bright and the light string is really flexible and feels good quality, the solar battery thingy is very heavy and not sure how it would fair being staked into the ground, but hubby has mounted it on the wall with no trouble, we have it set on the slow fade which is lovely, the others..... well i'm 52 so they were too 'jazzy' for me!! but great for an outside party if you wanted to just flick the switch to 'techno'!!
would highly recommend these, best i've ever had, gonna get me a multi coloured set now for the back fence.
I bought these for my new pergola and they are gorgeous! Easy set up, bright lights even on first night after only a few hrs charge. Going to get another pair for my fence.
Excellent quality but need a slower setting
Just brought these for the garden and they seem to last well into the small hours even with poor daylight in winter. Only negative which as I have read in other reviews for these is they need a SLOW twinkle as the pace of the flashing sequences and current twinkle is to fast!! I hope PowerBee read these reviews and pick up on this and may well buy more if this is rectified.
So far so good.
I bought these lights in early summer and 'fitted' them to a mature cherry tree. They have been very reliable, staying bright until the light of dawn switches them off.
I bought a set of these lights earlier this year and put them in an apple tree in my garden. They are fantastic and have just bought another set for another tree in the garden. They fully charge even in dull weather conditions and stay on throughout the night and into the early morning.
bright and beautiful
Ordered these on 30 June and they arrived on 2 July so very happy about the swift delivery. Now the light are up and glowing in my back yard and I am even happier, they are simply gorgeous. They are bright and long lasting. I got these as I already have the PowerBee star shaped lights which look simply lovely twined in my honeysuckle so I was already aware of the high quality of their lights. One very happy customer.
I bought three sets of these. Ordered Friday, arrived Saturday (impressive). I bought some cable-ties as I had bought these lights to make use of the cat-proof netting we have surrounding our garden! I thought this idea was awesome ;) I fitted all three sets today, at 1pm, which went right around all the netting. Now, at just gone 9pm the lights are on and wow!!!!!!!! I had forgotten about them, and had popped to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee and they dazzled me through the window! I read the reviews and expected them to be bright but was still amazed at how bright! It was embarrassing for about 10 minutes though, as I had to set the mode to still-mode as they were running on the cycle of flashing sequences, so tacky!!!!!!!!!!! The neighbours were out and I had to run and get my son (as my partner was busy on the PC with work) to help me to set all three to still-mode, he-he! I didn't want the neighbours to see the lights as some tacky Xmas flashing set and that I was stupidly early with Xmas this year :/ Anyway they are now on still-mode and wow, they are so pretty and light up the garden a treat! The cats are happy too! I can't wait to sit out with a glass of wine by the pool by them! It is like having a sky of stars in the back garden :)
It has been a dull day today, a few sunny intervals but not too bright, and they have charged up fully, to their best! 10************* stars to 'Powerbee' for these lights and at an amazing price and super fast delivery! I just hope the lights continue to please! :D
Pretty lights without the need for much sunlight
We now have these lights in 2 trees in my small yard/garden. Due to the location of the tree the solar panel is currently right up against the wall of the house and does not get any direct light for the whole day and is always in shade. The past week has been overcast and the lights stay on for about 4 hours each night and give a new dimension to the yard in the evenings.
I'm going to move them into a sunny spot once we have sorted the garden and look forward to them being brighter and staying on all night.
Great lights for all year round
I bought these lights to go outside at Christmas thinking they would probably not be fantastic this time of year with the dull grey weather we were having. I was wrong!! Even on the dullest days the lights charged up enough to last a few hours in the dark - usually still shining, if a little dulled, by the time I went to bed. It was great not having to worry about turning them on & off or setting up a timer - as soon as it got dark the bright little lights came on and then went off in the light (I had them in the front garden and they would go off if a car's lights hit the sensor, but back on again when it passed). I've now moved them into the back garden, and will leave them there to make a pretty display for the summer, they're too good to only keep for Christmas!
