Good solar-powered Xmas product – Solar Powered Energy Saving 2-Mode White 30-LED String Light (5M-Length) Reviews

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).
Other:
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 :)
