Pros:
This product is fantastic. I have an outdoor patio, and along the fence, I strung these lights to add some night-time ambiance. Surprisingly, the lights illuminate my patio very well. I carefully arranged each light so they aimed down, along the fence towards the ground - it looks really cool! I like in rainy Washington State and this unit has been exposed to the elements for almost a year now with NO PROBLEMS. I was worried about water leaking in to the solar/battery unit, but it's staying dry!
Cons:
Comes with a weak 600mAh battery. No problem though, just uncrew the back plate, and swap out with a better 2500mAh battery - this will give you 8+ hours of great light.
Other:
I bought an extra one of these to take with me camping, and it has worked out well. I string the lights along the front side of my tent. At night, they provide great ambient light, so when you're stumbling back to your tent from the campfire after a few too many beers, it's really easy to see what you're doing and get in and out of the tent. Not only that, but it looks cool, like the icicle lighting along building roofs.
Bottomline:
If you are looking for a fun and inexpensive way to add great ambience to your back patio, garden, greenhouse or next camping trip, get these. Do yourself a favor and buy more than one, because when you get your first one, you'll wish you had more!
