The lights I purchased are not adequate for the job, unfortunately. I was asked by Amazon for my review and did so, the bad and the good, and today, the seller PM'd me. I like a conscientious seller, don't you? I did say I was going to keep them, did not ask for anything from the seller, but they are offering anyway. If they stayed on for even 8 hours from dusk, that would be adequate, but they don't. I was very happy after the first night when the first one we put up did stay on almost all night but the second one didn't do that and neither has stayed on more than five hours from dusk since even with a full charge, not nearly enough for a security light. So, that means that even better solar ones may not be good enough either. Bummer. I didn't want to have to wire one, though we could, bringing it in from behind the current old ladies' coop nearby to the oak tree.
Sorry to disturb you. This is Amazon Seller Anear. We're writing to send our apologies to you. We noticed that you have left a negative feedback to us for your order #105-2238793-7009815 on Amazon:
"Bought on the many 5 star reviews, however, after the first night when it did stay on most of the night, it tanks after 4-5 hours or so, even on sunny days when they should have a full charge. They won't work as the security lights we needed them for so will have to buy a wired type, unfortunately. When they are on dim and motion is detected, they do function as described and are very bright in the range they're supposed to light up, but they don't stay on nearly long enough into the night to do the job required. Will keep the two we bought for path lighters, though we thought about returning them."
