It's a bit off topic but I thought I'd ask here 'cos I'll put the lights
in the ground myself :-) Anyway, are these lights much good and how do you
stop them, with DIY tactics, getting nicked ?
My next door neighbour has them at the front. I only know this
becuase I have seen them in daylight. At night they are so dim
that they look like the street light is reflecting off something.
Don't know if all brands are that bad but in this case all they
do is hint where the path goes rather than actually illuminating
Not really. I suppose it's what you expect of them and you may be
alright, provided you don't expect anything more than a few spots of
light that don't actually illuminate anything; and are prepared to
replace them after a year or two when the batteries go.
Putting them in the shed at night? :)
Short of concreting them in (self-defeating, if you're going to do
that use proper LV lighting and have the benefit of being able to
actually spot the bloody things at night) or possibly chaining them to
something immovable, I think you're onto a loser.
Most I've looked at have pathetic output and use really cheap
batteries. On a continual charge/drain cycle these batteries fail very
