This solar floodlight is an easy way to provide light inside small buildings where there is no access to mains electricity. It is ideal for use in sheds, garages, stables, summer houses as well as for camping and other outdoor activities, The solar panel charges the internal rechargeable battery (located in the light unit) during the day ready for operation at dusk. This solar flood light has 8 super bright 0.5W Samsung LEDs and is connected to the remote solar panel using the included 5m cable. Although designed to be charged via the solar panels, there is also a power socket enabling you to charge the batteries using a 6V 500mAh power supply (not included – Order Code: L66BQ).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought one of these, as I didn't want to have to employ an electrictian to install one with the new P regs. I read the reviews and they all seem to say works great even with lack of sunshine. I have put mine up, and originally I had the solar panel facing east...I found that if I activated the light at night, I'd get 4 activations then it'd run out for the night. I moved the solar panel to the South facing wall as specified, even though it does say works well even in low sunlight. Again it's still the same, works around 5/6 times then runs out for the night. Pretty rubbish if you ask me.Recommend an electritian to hard wire one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the box, and is fine for convenience lighting. It's bright, stays charged well even on wintery days and although the beam is quite narrow, it's such good value you could always get a second one for more coverage. Probably not suitable as a deterrant for intruders due to the all-plastic construction and external on/off switch unless mounted at sufficient height -- which would also help with coverage. As the 80 LEDs are unlikely to all fail simultaneously any time soon, mounting in a spot not easily accessible would be a good idea!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine in the spring, summer and autumn. Easy to install. However, even though the solar panel is facing south and has nothing shading it, it does not charge the battery enough to switch the light on in the winter months when most needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased one of these when they were on special offer, I was sceptical that they would give off enough light and charge suffciently quickly. I was wrong. This device isn't a 500w flood light, nor even 150w but it is more than good enough, simple to install and free electricity. I will buy more for all around the house whenever at the discount price

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I purchased 3 of these for an off grid Business Area. Initially they worked fine, gradually they got worse and worse, now a year later 2 of them are dead. the third one barely illuminates for about 15 seconds. I have adjusted the settings on this one but it makes no difference. Water has got into them from the Rain, one of the Detection Sensor Lenses has perished from Sunlight exposure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily mounted with the 4 screws and wall plugs provided, simple 3 setting adjustment once fitted. Was very impressed with the range and sensitivity of the PIR sensor, low maintenance as rain will remove most bird droppings from the solar panel which efficiently provides zero running costs. The flood area and brightness is what you would expect from the LEDs but more than adequate for most purposes and easily illuminates an average driveway or off road parking area

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Having tried a few solar spotlights in the past, with mixed results, I was impressed by the power of this floodlight. Of course, it doesnФЗЦt match the full spread and reach of an average halogen floodlight, but then you couldnФЗЦt run one of those off solar power! If you are planning to buy this for inside a shed, it may be too bright / concentrated a light. The beam produced has a good-sized central area of well-focused light with more diffuse perimeter of general illumination. As a rough guide, the central area is about 5m wide at 5m distance and illuminates to 15m easily. The instructions are mostly clear and in good English, but sometimes contradictory, e.g. if the battery has not received enough solar charge for good operation, they tell you to remove it and charge it separately, but later on they say that opening the case (which you must ФЗф and can easily ФЗф do in order to access the battery) will invalidate the warranty. Also, the motion sensor controls are pictured as the inverse of how they are on the unit, so expect some trial and error to see which way to turn them for the desired effect. I bought two of these lights and was pleased to find that their 6 volt internal lead-acid batteries both already had over 6v in them, so donФЗЦt expect yours to arrive ФЗяflatФЗЦ and need a full charge before use. However, giving it the recommended 3 daysФЗЦ solar charge before normal use may be a sensible precaution. (What benefit that will have in grey, wintry weather is debatable!) The main failure of this otherwise very nice unit is the LACK of LATERAL ADJUSTMENT for the light. The reflector unit swivels up & down but NOT side to side. This means that, wherever you mount the light, it will only illuminate directly ahead. Often, one wants to mount a security light on one corner of a building and have the beam spread across the same building, or be able to vary the coverage, so beware: this could be a serious drawback. One solution would be to mount it on an independently hinged backboard or an angled block. (Yes, you can rotate the lamp head 90 degrees and then swivel it side to side, but this makes the beam tall & thin, and still it will not swivel down to shine onto the ground ahead!) The solar panel suffers from the SAME PROBLEM, so if its mounting surface is not facing due South you might need to make similar adjustments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought three of these from the Newcastle shop. All three stopped working after 9 months in November.

I have purchased one of these lights but it does not appear to be charging from the panel - should the panel work even if no direct sun light reaches it? I.e. in the winter months when it is overcast.

Asked by: matt3010
If there has been no direct sun light the item would not get any charge. In winter solar powered items do struggle unfortunately.

I have just purchased one of these lights and am wondering what the red indicator light on the right hand side of the unit is for or what it indicates. I cant seem to find anything about it in the leaflet. Cheers Dave

Asked by: Dave
This light will indicate charge being provided to the unit.

Can we obtain a replacement solar panel for this light. The panel has cracked.
