I've used a couple of different styles from Malibu. For me, they work
great. I pull the ones along the walkway up each fall so the snowblower
doesn't 'eat' them, but leave the ones in the garden in all year round. I
had to replace the NiCd battery in a couple of them this spring, but they
are four years old now, so that's not bad.
Even in winter they can last for several hours, depending on the amount of
sunshine. This past week, the garden ones are still lit when I get up for
work in the morning (5:00 AM), so they make it through the night when it's
been a good day.
The 'white' ones are brighter than the yellowish ones. My wife prefers the
white so to keep peace, that's what the newer ones are. They may not be as
bright as a low-voltage system, but they mark the walkway and steps well
enough to avoid tripping.
Yes. I have one that's been lighting a statuette in my garden for two
years. It works fine although it's not very bright.
