Pros:
Just works. what else for what price?
Cons:
it's white! always looks dirty - because of white cheap plastic. it also not weather-resistant at all - same cause.
Other:
there are three similar skus on dx, all 3 - more or less exact copies of some unknown to me brand. 12924 - better overall quality, from components design to body plastic, but dollar higher and, worst, high-powered light-nothing red led instead of low-powered blinking one, which I find very usable - to find the lamp itself in the dark. It does not drain noticeable power - after 10 days of everynight use at least. 36096 - exactly same as this one, but black, so it looks much better after 1st day. But it's "temporarily sold out" - forever, I guess.
Bottomline:
by this for outdoor use, if 36096 is another 'always temporarily sold out' sku on dx, or at least give it a try.
