  • Good solar-powered Xmas product

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Plant the pole into the ground, give it a couple hours to charge (w/ direct sunlight) and it will work like a charm.
    * LEDs are bright enough to be seen from across the street.
    * Can be tweaked if you know how.
    * Solar cell panel seems solid enough.

    Cons:

    * Don't really trust the "waterproof" specification, but a some silicone will fix that.
    * Wire came all tangled - took me almost 30 minutes to get it straight.
    * Internal battery is 600mAh only - but it can easily be swapped for a better one.
    * Came wrapped in bubble paper only: no box, no instructions (of course you don't need any but it would look much better if packaged properly).

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    I love the fact that it's solar powered - and that it actually works. Most definitely will buy more next year.
    I found out last February that DX was selling this article, so I had to wait 10 months until Xmas to be able to use it :)
