My Review:
These lights come with all sorts of extra goodies – in addition to the extra-long string of lights and the instruction sheet, you get a solar charger with two different mounting options (a stake for the ground or a wall mount with the screws and anchor plugs included) and a USB adapter so you also have the option to power the lights via USB (your computer, a wall charger, a power bank, etc.). The length of the string of lights is terrific – my house has a wrap-around front porch that extends all the way across the front of the house and then partway down one side, and these lights were more than long enough to go along the entire length of my porch with some length left over.

The copper wire that the lights are strung along is nearly invisible even in daylight, but very strong and holds its shape quite well if you want to form specific patterns. The wire is very thin, but seems to be sturdy enough not to break with mild pressure. Some of the lights tangled together as I reached the end of the string while I was hanging them up, and gentle tugging as I untangled them didn’t hurt the wire at all. I’m not sure how they’d stand up to bad weather, like rain or snow, and don’t really intend to find out . For the time being, I strung them along the edge of my porch (in a similar style to Christmas lights), and they look quite pretty when night falls. They’re not super bright (you wouldn’t be able to read a book by their light or anything, at least not all spread out the way mine are), but they provide a soft, pretty glow. I also like the way they look in one of the product image pictures, where they’re coiled up inside a clear container, and want to try that with them as well.

The real selling point for me with these lights is the two types of power sources – I have battery operated string lights, and I have electrical (wall plug) powered string lights, but these lights are powered either by solar power or USB. That’s a big bonus for outdoor-use lights for me. Batteries die, and our house doesn’t have a single outside electrical outlet. Solar power is renewable, and I’ve found that on cloudy days, my external power bank works great to power these lights. With the solar panel, the energy stores up during the day and the lights turn on automatically at dusk and stay on until the stored energy is depleted or you manually turn them off. The solar panel has an on/off button and a mode button for either steady or blinking lights on the back of it; the USB adapter has only one button, but it cycles through steady on, flashing, and off. The extra bonus of the USB power source is the variety of places you can use them, indoors or out – you don’t need an electrical outlet, all you need is a charged up external power bank.
