Add some colorful whimsy to your lawn with #houseagainLight
By Susan L. Anadale
[[VIDEOID:e64aa3c22178005472e1316eaf0ee38d]] Disclosure: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
Each kit contains the components to assemble 6 color-changing solar lights:
1 instruction detailed instruction sheet
6 plastic frosted cones
6 solar panels with controllers
6 plastic hangers
6 plastic 2-piece stakes
Can be hung from hangers or installed in the ground using the included stakes
Light with hanger measures approx. 7 inches tall
Light with stake and hanger measures approx. 12 inches tall
Color-changing LEDs that can be cycled between 6 different colors + one "color" that is a gradual shift through all the colors
3 different light modes: Smart, Cycling, and Locked (I explain and demonstrate these in detail in the video)
6 hours to fully charge for 4-10 hours of light (at least according to the instruction manual---I don't get up early enough to see if they'll really stay on all night ;)
Sensor activated: automatically shut off when it gets light and turn on in the dark
What did I think?
I really like these. The units seem sturdy in spite of being made of plastic and the stakes are very strong. The frosted cones nicely diffuse the vibrant colors. They give off a fair amount of light (white is brightest if you are looking to light a path or garden feature). Assembly is easy-peasy with the included instructions and takes maybe a minute per light.
The lights I received were at least partially charged already and they were working great the first night even though I only had a few hours of daylight after I installed them. I like being able to set them to white or any of the other 5 colors and the coloring-changing "color" is nicely done (it kind of melds from one color to the next).
I took off one star because the hangers are a bit flimsy and seem like they might be prone to breakage or warping over time. The hanger locks the solar panel top into the cone, but it fits a bit loosely into the molded slots and doesn't exactly snap into place (see the photos and video for more detail on this). I'm concerned that hung lights over time will have issues with the hangers pulling out. If I were hanging them long-term, I might fit a rubber band over the area where the hanger fits in as reinforcement. I intend to use these to light a path and I think the lights on stakes will be fine as there won't be any stress on the hanger.
Overall, I'm pleased with these and would have been happy with my purchase if I had bought them myself. They can act as traditional lawn lights or add some whimsy without a bunch of unsightly cords. 2 thumbs up!
Edited to add my still pictures 7/28.

Lovely outdoor solar lights
By Ms. M. N.
I like having accent lighting around the exterior of my home. While I have a few spotlights, I was looking for more of accent or guide lights along edges and paths. This is a set of 6 solar lights, which are a great addition to my yard.
These are definitely more on the unique side for solar lights. They have a sort of cone shape and a 'handle with hook' on top. Since each one comes with a stake, I was hoping to leave off the top hangers, but it seems like they are best left so that they keep the top on securely. I would say this is the only downside as it seems odd to have them on if you aren't actually hanging them.
The lights come with directions, stakes, hangers, string for hanging. Everything you need to get set up.
The underside of the solar panel has a switch. You can choose between 'smart' (a different color daily), cycling, and lock (choose one color). For now I have them all on 'lock' so that they are all white. But it would be neat to change these to other colors for the holidays (like red/green for Christmas, green for St. Patty's day, etc).
These are easy to put together, and I have these situated around the house - by my patio steps, around the patio, one at the mailbox, etc. They have a nice calm glow to them, which is nice as LEDs can be pretty harsh.
I received this set in exchange for my honest review.

Cute Color Changing solar lights
By Gabriela Morales
To be able to get to my front door you have to walk 25 steps and there is no light on the side so I wanted something to put there to at least give me an idea where I'm stepping on. I wanted something nice since there's only grass on the side. I ordered these solar lights because I thought it was cute how they are color and they changed if you send them up. The design is cute not the normal round or square light it's more like glass design. It was easy to assemble it. It comes with the stakes, hangers and string in case you want to hang them. You can change to steady light(white or any color you want) and a cycle. They are really steady which I was scared they were going to be fragile. Easy to clean them up. I love how the colors show against the steps. Really happy with my purchase.
