What are the features of this string light?
This string of 100 white lights is an effective way to light you outdoor areas. Each light sits 10cm apart, creating plenty of options when hanging. The lights have a six to eight hour lifespan, so they’ll last all night on a full charge.

What is dual power technology?
Dual powered solar lights contain both alkaline and solar powered batteries. In the winter months when the days become shorter, the solar batteries run out more quickly, the alkaline battery will then kick in to compensate. This offers you an efficient and consistent light all year round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great having duel battery and solar Had these lights a few weeks now and they are working well. Good choice of modes and easy access to battery. Only complaint is there is no timed option so when solar runs out and lights go on battery only, they continue to run all night unless you physically switch them off (and back on in morning to charge solar). means that in Scotland in November they run for about an hour a night on solar then use battery for next 10 hours, half of which you are probably sleeping. A 6/18 timer would have got these 5*. Version i got only uses one battery so it needs changed every week or less at the moment to keep them shining bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought these lights to add a festive feel to our front gate, taking in to consideration we couldn't guarantee the sunshine to power them. Oh how we were surprised. They're bright, take little sunshine to charge and certainly last until after I've gone to bed! They have various settings for light sequence and even has a battery supplied when there's insufficient sunshine to power them. I paid £5.99, and was fortunate it was on bogof, but would definitely spend the nominal extra for them. Nice one Maplins, definitely a thumbs up from me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great no hassle lights I've wrapped these lights round the trunk of my apple tree and they look fantastic. The solar charger is small and sits discretely in the ground and the lights were easy to unbox and install on the tree. There are several lighting settings to choose from with the speed at which they can flicker, but I've chosen the always on setting so that now as soon as it gets dark, my tree lights up beautifully. Once the winter comes i can put batteries into the charger which i'll do once they stop coming on automatically, i would guess in October.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed I bought 4 sets of these lights to mystify a tree in order to attract fairies (for my daughter). However on one of the sets, only 1/2 the lights work. Although my daughter hasn't noticed, I have and would not buy these again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They seem like a bargain, but they're not worth bothering with I bought these lights to use on a tiny Christmas tree in our garden but they're a waste of time, for 2 reasons: 1. The string of 20 lights isn't enough to cover even a small tree. Each light has to be clipped onto a branch, but the length of cable between each light is short, so you're constrained as to where you can place them - you can't space them out evenly. 2. They don't hold their charge. I took the battery out of the unit and charged it up before installing them (I've learnt from experience that this is the best option in winter). Fully charged, they gave a very subtle glow. But the next day, they didn't light up at all. The solar charger was high on a wall where it gets plenty of light, so I'd expect them to last a bit longer than 24 hours. I'll be returning them. I guess you get what you pay for with solar products. Buy cheap, buy twice?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply lovely Bought these led outdoor solar lights and they are great. Easy to put together and because of the battery they keep going. Decorated my trees and door for Christmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lasts all night Had these for a couple of weeks now, bouht at £9.99, from dusk about 8pm, to first light about 530am, they remain lit all night. They have 12 different light patterns, great for the money and have really enhanced the pond area in the garden. Be interesting to see how long they last, if they do for a decent time, it will be 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice display Thought these would be good for outside Christmas time and no wires coming through windows. Well they give a lovely display of colour and am very pleased think I will get some more.

Why do rechargeable batteries not work for the stand by mode?

Asked by: Geoff
This would be due to the lower voltage of the rechargeable batteries being 1.2V per battery rather than 1.5V, the standby would believe it did not have the right amount of power.

These lights are labelled as RGB. Does this mean they are colour changing bulbs or just multicoloured bulbs with static hues?

Asked by: Maria R
'Set the colours you want with these multi-coloured bulbs, lighting up different areas in different colours for added effect.'

It says motion activated, is this correct or only dusk activated? How long is the cable between the last light and the solar panel, I'm calculating it at 1m (100cm) but is this correct?

Asked by: Shaun
It says "Motion activated No" To indicate the item is not motion activated. "200 white solar lights spread over 20.9m" you have 0.9m between the solar panel and the first light.
