Normally I am not one to write reviews, but if it will help you decide whether this product is worth buying I will take a few moments to give you my opinion. My wife and I built a redwood deck for our hot tub. I used the lights along a bamboo fence that is four feet off the deck. I was skeptacle that solar would work but since the rope light has a long lead to the panel it was easy to position to get maximum sunlight. We were enjoying a summer night and right at dusk the built in sensor turned them on. We were amazed how bright but quaint the lights were.Great buy

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Very good value
I installed this on my sliding driveway chainlink gate so I wouldn't back into it at night. It works great! just bright enough to clearly see, and the lights stay light for many hours.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Natasha 16 ft. Solar led rope light
Easy installation product looks great very disappointed no matter how much sunlight lights only for 21/2 half hours.
Anyone else own this Solar product? Is there someway to have the lighting last longer?

I bought them because I have had them before and I knew Sandy was going to visit us here in Ct. I would put out the rope lights during the day and at night I would bring them in to light up the inside of the house. I laid them out from my kitchen/family room into the bedrooms so we could see where we were going. worked every night until my lights went back on. they are great outside also, where I have my older set woven into the chain link fence in my driveway, they are bright and cover a large area with light. I love them

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Otmar Poor design, battery too small.
Good: This light rope is easy to install.
The Bad: The tube that holds the lights is not securely sealed so there is a strong risk of failure due to moisture ingress. Mine is cloudy with moisture after only 1 week.
But all that matters little since they are trying to power 54 LED's from a single 600mAHr 3.2V cell. The engineering doesn't pencil out, nor does it last longer than 3 hours here in Oregon.
Maybe if you only need a few hours of light this would be ok, but they really should have at least used the standard larger 1000mAhr cell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda Excellent Bright Light
Rope curls like a snake requiring mounting clips, I used black cable ties attaching under circular 44” black patio table with screen mesh top. Light filters through mesh above table. Illuminated rope light is only 10 feet the remaining length of 6 feet is non-illuminated lead wire connects to solar box, which is long enough to place in flower container where it will get sun to recharge solar batteries. Switch under the solar plate has ON/OFF/AUTO. Excellent for this application. Had to place lead wire through large flower container next to table then solar box out of way, so guests walking or sitting would not stumble over the thin wire taking the table, umbrella and flowers to their doom. Solar box can be mounted or stacked in flower container or in ground. Highly Recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Highlighting parking area and works well.
We own a Bed & Breakfast and use this for the parking area for guests. We have had one for 1 area for about 6 months and it works welll, so we bought another for the other parking area. It really helps guests find the parking area when they come after dark; they light the parking area well and we are pleased with them. However, the rope brackets are plastic and are easy to break. We broke several until we discovered they sent oversized screws; we had some smaller and used them instead (both sets).

Ends are sealed with a soft silicon rubber insert. Heat and cold cause the tubing to change length, and the the end pieces pop of and the LED string works its way out. And then moisture goes into the tube and the lights fail.

I bought these in early spring to wrap around my daughter's swing set. We have been using them for a few months now & they still work great. Nice & bright. They stay lit for several hours after dark.

The lights are real easy to place garden bed or shaped border and the sun does all the work in charging these. They look great in a garden or around a patio or as accent lighting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SwedeHandyMan Easy installation and looks great!
This rope light provides excellent accent lighting for my outdoor project. Not to be confused with primary lighting (as some previous reviewers suggest), the light may not be bright enough for some purposes. I purchased multiple ropes and installed one on the north side of the house on a long step-down from one patio level to another to light the way for visitors to avoid trips and falls. Only extra effort is extending the wire length to the solar panel to reach a placement for maximum sun exposure. After that, the rope stays lit for at least 4-7 hours (depending on clouds and other variables). If I really need a long lighting duration (for a late party, etc.), I simply install freshly charged batteries earlier in the day and the rope stays lit all night. The rope on the sunny side (south) of the house stays lit all night, every night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skip A cheap way to highlight an area
I bought the rope to bring a bit of light to the entry gate to my parents' property. The gate didn't need lots of light, just enought to show in the dark whether it was closed or not. I installed it myself easily and works great! Of course, don't expect many hours of light after a gloomy winter day. BTW, since I installed it at Xmas time, it occured to me how much they could pass for Xmas lights. With several strings of them, you would have an inexpensive way to decorate part of your yard or house.

So easy to install under our outdoor stone coffee table. Gives enough light to see all around in the evening but not so bright that its to much. A perfect glow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pancho Solar rope light -
I'm using my solar rope light around a tall queen palm in my yard. I've had it for over a month, and it works and looks great. It charges up during the day and comes on at dusk. It stays on way past midnight. The LED lites in the rope are nicely spaced out and very bright. The solar panel took a little convincing to make it stay in one place, because I chose to fasten it around the upper part of the trunk instead of placing it in the ground. The only thing I wish was different, is that I wish the rope lite was longer. I am definitely buying another lite, because the current lite makes it look like the tree is wearing a tube top and mini-skirt.... looks awkward. The rope light needs to be longer even if it costs more. Or they could sell different lengths. Overall I am satisfied and would recommend to my family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheScarfLady Bright light without electric hookup
My solar collector is not in the best place - facing east but blocked mostly, and blocked completely after only a couple of hours. Still, night after night, this strand gives enough light to make a good difference to lighting a doorway.
Also, the lighting looks good enough that I'm thinking of adding more for light but also for appearance.

Wanted to add some light to a few trees, these solars work perfectly. They give off more light than I anticipated. The solar tubing is protected on both ends with a plastic plug to prevent moisture from entering. The solar battery can be taken on/off the unground stake. There is a long cord connected to the solar battery so that I can set it out in the sun for recharge. Everything I expected.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kws64 Dim Lights; pass on them
Lights and solar panel are easy enough to install but even though I have them in direct sun for over 8 hours a day, they are very dim when lit. Not much more than a poor accent light.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by scratchbaker Less than 2 hrs of light in less than 90 days
These lights would be terrific if the batteries had legs but the set I bought, in less than 90 days, wasn't lighting the string for even 2 hours after sundown so I returned them. Not sure if the solar batteries do not hold enough charge or if what I bought just had bad batteries. If it was the latter I'd buy them again but if the former I would not purchase these. You'd be spending a lot replacing batteries too frequently to make these cost-effective.

My husband had installed the rope lighting around our decking as a night safety feature. They were very easy to install. The solar panel works great. We have it tucked in a flower pot. Even thought it doesn't get direct sunlight (filtered through our tree) the illumination last for hours! It added a little of embiance to our back yard. Great product for the price.

I bought this product for pathway lighting for our property in the country (just outside our RV). Very easy to install (secured with landscape fabric stakes), no electricity required and lights stay lit until the very wee hours in the AM. Gives a nice nighttime look and lights the way if you have to step outside.
