Solar lights are not very effective and are dim. The kits that include a low-voltage transformer work very well. My set was about $15 and going on its 6th year of continuous use.

We bought a set of six at HD. In about a month, two are barely going on. None work well if it was a cloudy day and even on the best of days they give off little light. . Waste of money, IMO

solution for folks who don't want the hassle of running 120v out there. They do make good low voltage lights but they are not cheap. Basically as much as 120v lights of the same quality ... but that should not surprise you. The plastic Malibu lights work but you get what you pay for.

years ago I played with solar lights and gave up.. they stopped working after a short period of time.... However 2 years ago I purchased a set of 12 CHEAP Malibu solar lights at HD and they are still working fine... actually I added another 12 last year...
As far as how much light they "throw" the answer is ...not much. But for markers around the yard they work quite well... only problem is depending on how much sun any light gets during the day will determine how long it can function at night....
I'm happy with the ones I purchased ... BUT I was not after BRIGHT lights ... only markers, or mood lighting... these have worked

That's the one I have that are failing in summer. They will really be junk in the winter. I have to find the paperwork to see if I can still get my money back. I'm glad your experience has been better than mine., but two of 6 are failing after only a few weeks.
