Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought 3 of these as they were on offer at a ridiculously low price, wasn't really expecting much, however was very happily proved wrong. Some differences in daylight settings noticed (eg: actuate at slightly different times) however, still rather impressed with them, especially the star like pattern they reflect onto the floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected Bought some of these last year and didn't get round to fitting them, placed them in the garden last night and was very pleased with what they looked like, very bright and do make a star like pattern on the ground, came on at about 10.30 and still as bright at 4.30 this morning when I looked out the window. (4 month old wanted feeding!) Cant give 5 stars yet as no idea how they will stand up to being rained on, we are in Cornwall where there is plenty of that :) !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid Exactly the same as one of the other reviews. Corrosion on the circuit boards in a month so none of the 5 bought are now working. Managed to get one to work with a new rechargeable. Two others light up all the time with new rechargeables but do not switch off in daylight so those batteries will never recharge! Probably a good purchase if you take them outside each day if not raining and bring them in at night to use them as nightlights on your staircase. Suggest Maplin withdraw from sale. So cheap it is not worth the petrol to return them to store so will be experimenting with them further instead.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two out of five I purchased 5 of these but sadly 2 of them do not work. I guess it's a case of you get what you pay for and being so cheap should have left well alone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap - but nasty. I bought six of these one month ago. Within two weeks I started having problems - of the six units the battery in two of the lights totally failed after just 2 weeks, refusing to accept any charge at all, either in the unit from the solar cell or when removed and charged independently. The other 4, when tested, could only power a mini LED torch for less than 15 mins each after being fully charged (the torch I used to test them will operate for at least 24hrs non stop on my other AAA ni-mh batteries). I replaced the batteries in all six units with ones I already had spare - if I had had to buy replacements (at Maplin prices) it would have been almost £15 - nearly three times more than the lights cost in the first place! Another two weeks down the line and, after a heavy rain storm they all filled up with water, and all but one failed. On examination, they all show signs of corrosion on the circuits! I am a great fan of Solar, using it on my Caravan, sheds, for home security etc etc, but if this were my first experience of using solar lighting it would have put me off for life! In summary - do not buy unless you are prepared to budget for replacement batteries almost immediately; if you use them be prepared to bring them indoors whenever rain threatens! These lights should be withdrawn from sale as 'not fit for use' in my opinion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Got 3 middle of last Summer when they worked OK.They slowly stopped working and on opening them today they are full of corrosion. I suggest if you have them you open them and cover the inside with some sort of wax/oil damp inhibitor which may help.

Can the rechargeable batteries be bought in store?

Asked by: Spurs1
It uses a standard AAA 600mah ni-mh battery - Maplin sell a set of four for about a tenner.
