Figure out where you want the lights placed, take the plastic mounting bracket take your pencil and mark the hole on the top of the bracket a half inch lower where the screw is going to go. I used stainless steel screws to secure the bracket to the step (throw away the screws that come with the lights, they are junk). Secure the bracket to the steps, slide the light onto the bracket and enjoy!

Answer: 
Just unpack the lights and put them in daylight so they can charge. I simply placed them on a couple of darkish steps where they stay all the time, they're heavy enough that they won't blow away. Set the switch underneath to ON and they will automatically light up as darkness falls and switch off at dawn.

How Long Do The Rechargable Batteries Last

This question is from 2-Light Stainless Steel Outdoor Solar Step Light (4-Pack)
Asked by
Lower Delaware County Pa

November 6, 2014
I purchased 2 packs in May of 2014, after they charged they looked great on my deck steps. I noticed after 3 months some where not coming on or as bright as others. By the end of October 2014 not one light was coming on. They receive the required 8 hours of sunshine but failed to thrive for 5 months, anyone experience this problem? Did I get a bad batch of rechargeable batteries? Can these rechargeable batteries be recharged using a battery charger or strictly charged by solar power?

Answer: 
Not a simple question to answer because different rechargeable batteries charge differently. NiCAD batteries must be fully discharged before recharging, otherwise, they'll never hold a full charge. NiCAD batteries have a "memory" that only allows them to hold a charge from the point where recharging started to the point of being fully charged. Example: If the NiCAD had 50% of it's total charge remaining Read More
Not a simple question to answer because different rechargeable batteries charge differently. NiCAD batteries must be fully discharged before recharging, otherwise, they'll never hold a full charge. NiCAD batteries have a "memory" that only allows them to hold a charge from the point where recharging started to the point of being fully charged. Example: If the NiCAD had 50% of it's total charge remaining and it was then recharged (prior to being 100% discharged), the maximum usable charge you could get from that battery going forward is that chargeable volume between 50% and 100% full charge. Hope that makes sense to you. Under ideal conditions, a NiCAD battery that fully discharges every time it's used prior to being recharged will last about 12 months.
NiMH batteries on the other hand, have no "memory". If, as above, a NiMH battery starts recharging before it's 100% discharged, it will not limit the battery's ability to discharge completely (or partially). Under ideal conditions, you should expect approximately 500 recharging cycles from NiMH batteries before they need to be replaced.
Note that temperature (hot and cold weather), adversely affect battery life. I don't know what batteries came in your 2-light step light, but if your solar light came with NiCAD batteries and didn't have an opportunity to fully discharge, this could explain the short life you experienced. I'd suggest you replace the rechargeable batteries with new NiMH batteries that have similar mAh ratings. Read Less

FWIW, this is what the manual says:
How long will my batteries / lights last? Ni-Cd batteries should last for 1000 daily cycles, Ni-Mh for 500 daily cycles, Ni-Mh LSD (low self-discharge) for 800 daily cycles and the LED bulbs should last 20 years.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bright light! These are rather small step lights, but the light emitted from them is very bright (see my pictures) and will definitely illuminate your way in the dark. They were easy to install and come with the necessary brackets, screws and plastic anchors, although the plastic mounting brackets are a bit flimsy. The rechargeable batteries are recharged by sun light, and although it's not clear how long those batteries will last, I believe they can be replaced if need be. The lights only turn on when it's dusk and apparently last for about 8 hours (I haven't tested this) and then turn off again when it's daylight. These are cute solar lights, which can be installed on stairs or steps, but also decks, platforms etc. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Lights I wanted these to light up my deck at night so I’m just going to place them out on the deck where hopefully I won’t kick them off. They are pretty low and flat so hopefully won’t get blown off. They come with brackets to install on a wall but I don’t have a good spot to place them. Also they say to get the batteries fully charged you should place them in full sun and if I place them on the front of the house they will probably get shaded by the overhang and the trees. I’ll see how they do. July 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice-looking lights, but only 3 work These step lights look nice and are made with a stainless steel shell over plastic housing. They are about 3.75" round and .75" tall. They turn on at dusk and last a few hours before getting dim. What I liked: - Each light has 2 LED bulbs that should last about 20 years. They are a pleasing warm white color. - Rechargeable 250 mAh AA Ni-Cd battery is included in each and they can be replaced with higher capacity Ni-Mh or Ni-Cd batteries. - On/Off switch has rubbery protective coating. - Mounting hardware is included, along with instructions What I did not like: - One light was defective. On checking inside, I found that the light will work only when the wires are moved. Not being an expert in wiring repair, I will just use the other 3 lights. - The plastic hangers are flimsy. - They are designed to hang down, but if the sun does not hit it fully, the lights have to be removed and placed in direct sunlight in order to charge them. - The description states 6 lumens, but the box states that the peak light output is 1.4 lumens. -Although the bulbs may last 20 years, and the batteries are replaceable, I am not confident that the lights would last very long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great, economical step lights I've been searching for a solution to a tripping hazard on my front steps for a long time. The previous owner put down black grip strips, which helps a little, but at night, I and my guests are regularly stumbling down the steps, due to how the brown color of the steps blends together in the darkness, even when nearby lights are on. With that intro out of the way, I can report that I've finally found my solution! I had previously used motion-sensing LEDs powered by batteries, but they were ugly and only somewhat functional, as you want people to see the steps before they come near them. These "always-on" lights are great, and the fact that they charge during the day makes the whole concept work perfectly. Just a couple of observations about how the design could be improved: (1) These lights are designed to be hung on a small plastic mount (included), such that they point down. The problem I've found is that the LEDs are highly directional, so most of the light simply shines directly below the light, rather than out and across the steps. The LEDs should really be mounted inside the casing at a slight angle, so that light is case in multiple directions (perhaps forming an arc). (2) The casing is just a bit bulky. I'm sure this is a limit of the technology today, but it would be great if they were shorter, and also had a smaller diameter. I could not fit them on certain porch steps that has very little rise, and on the steps where they did fit, there's a possibility of stepping down onto the lights if you're not looking where you're going. Just one other note: there's a rubber-coated on/off switch on the backside of these lights, which is great for storage, or during periods where your area does not need to be lit up at night. Given that the included batteries are only rated for 500 charge/discharge cycles, you may want to turn them off except when you have guests. June 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Low Quality Bought a set, lasted only 2 months, bought a second set, lasted only 2 moths. Tese lights are NOT designed for outdoor use. They allow water to leak inside which eventually ruins the circuitry and corrodes the battery. Should be pulled from the market. Save your money. October 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty lights, but flimsy construction and weak light output Pros: I got these for some decking stairs, intrigued by their maintenance free and very modern/stainless steel design. They're very easy to install, with a power screwdriver and a measuring tape (optional). Cons: They don't flush mount, the light itself is an eighth of an inch from the mounting surface, leaving room for rain, ice, spiders, etc. to get under them. The light is very weak and will only be useful on a very dark night or when your eyes are well acclimated to the dark. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Battery change The only thing I had to do was change the battery but overall I like the mellow feel it gives. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everyone loves it!! I purchased this solar light because it was affordable and it came 4 lights in the package. The purpose was simply to illuminate the side of my fence that face the street because it was too dark. Even tough this light is supposed to illuminate the stairs or put them in your balcony; I hang them on my fence, so the light is pointing down at the side walk. All my neighbors have admired my work, and the best part I got to know so many wonderful people at my neighborhood just because we started a conversation about this awesome lights. Moreover, these lights really illuminate the area, so far they have work every day through this summer. September 14, 2015
