Product overview

•Two adjustable lights can provide single or split beams of light
•Security around the house and garden •No wiring required, no electricity costs •Light can be mounted anywhere inside and out (mounting kit included) •Charged by solar panel during the day •18 high-output LEDs in each light •The PIR motion sensor switches lights on when movement is detected within its range
•Fully adjustable spotlight head (with built-in PIR sensor) and solar panel •Includes 3 x AA size 600mAh Ni-Mh rechargeable batteries •Waterproof design

This Twin Spot Solar Light is an environmentally friendly product as it is powered by solar energy with two adjustable heads. Both beams can be used to light a wide area together or can be split to cover two separate areas. During the day, the solar panel converts sunlight into energy, which is stored in the rechargeable battery. The integrated Passive InfraRed (PIR) sensor activates the light when motion is detected, helping keep your home safe and secure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a good light for backup lighting, or lighting small areas, dont expect it to light up an area further than about 3-4 meters away from its position, it will not illuminate your whole garden like a halogen light. I have an alley way about 25 feet long, and mounted the unit half way along it so the neighbours who have right of way can see in the dark, this product JUST ABOUT does the job. doesn't appear to be waterproof. I have drilled a drain hole in the bottom of mine so any water that does find its way in can find its way out again!. also, this unit takes 3 standard C batteries, which are rechargeable and sit in a waterproof compartment inside the unit. this means should the unit not hold its charge over time, these batteries are easily available, I have taken the precaution of buying some spare batteries so they are on standby and ready to swap in case this happens (my solar panel doesn't get as much direct sun light as is recommended). good screws and fixings lead between solar panel and light could have been longer. its just over a meter!. all in all, its ok for small areas and does the minor job I bought it for! would not recommend for main garden light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very bright LEDs Charges in cloudy weather without problem. Remote wired solar panel helps as it can be placed facing south. Good Value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased around Feb (when dark at around 18:00). It has view of sky but not direct sun for most of day. Does just what it says on the tin. (I never expected a 500watt mains halogen). Though more pricey now, I am thinking of buying a second unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to aid passage through our home yard... After 4 months... it still works well, despite being in the rain!! Don't expect daylight looking lighting.. but more than enough to traverse tricky ground and obstacles. Only fault is that it may not stay on long enough :( But otherwise a great product, hassle free and no electric sucked out of mains, as Halogen products do!! Will look to buy a few more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The light is ok .. if you're willing to take the light off of the wall and plug the batteries into a charger every three days but charging via the solar panel is useless and doesn't even light up my stairs less then 2ft away from the light. I followed instructions and it is in a place where it gets sun almost all day so this problem shouldn't occur.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit plasticy but otherwise good little unit. Very easy to set up, providing sufficient light in a very dark area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from At first i though it was because it was charging up enough but what seems to happen is even with the sensor on minimum it is still coming on in the daytime so at night there is little charge left in it. As others have mentioned the light isn't very bright when it does work, a wired halogen light is half the price and will work as designed..

Pleased with the unit overall, but some nights the lights keep switching on for no apparent reason. Can you suggest a reason? I did notice the sensor arm seemed loose, can this be tightened and is it a reason for the intermittent lights

Just bought this light with help of member of staff. It says clearly on box and on this site 'Waterproof design' but the instructions say 'not to be exposed to excessive rain'. Which is correct please?

Asked by: Stuart
I would say the instructions would be correct for the item.

PIR info reads about movement within its range, what would its range be?

Asked by: Bill
The maximum detection area is 8m, however this will be affected by position height and the angle the sensor is turned to.
Answered by: Gareth
Date published: 2017-08-28

can the lights be permanently switched ON or do they only work when they detect movement?

Asked by: Serena

Are the lights on all night once activated?

Asked by: steve o
No the light will turn off after a while , this can be adjusted for longer or shorter periods the light stays on for.
Answered by: Darren
Date published: 2016-12-20

In another question you were asked if the length of time the lights stay on for can be adjusted and you said there were two screws on the bottom of the unit that can adjust the time. Could you possibly show a picture of these as my lights don't go off

Asked by: Sues
Unfortunately we are unable to add extra images if you have any issues with the item please take it into a local store for help.
