It didn't hold up for more than a few months. The plastic would slip on the flagpole thus getting to sunlight to the solar panel. Then it just stopped working.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe30189 Good value for the money!
I use this light in my small chicken coop to lengthen fall and winter days so the chickens will lay more eggs. It was easy to install, comes on at dusk and will shut off at sunrise, if left on all night. I unplug it at around 9:00 PM rather than run down the battery unnecessarily. The light is more yellow than I like. I would prefer a white light but it is what it is. Overall, it is a good value, highly recommend.

I am using this as a spot light for an area of my fishpond that you normally can't see after sundown. I have them attached to a tall lansdcappers hook decoration near the pond. The rocks and area I am illuminating is about 10' away and the light is pretty diffuse at that point, but it is bright enough to see the features. I am particularly pleased with the mounting apparatus, it was flexible enough to allow this. You can also wall or flat mount them with provided screws if needed. The small profile and black color make them inobtrusive and not an eyesore. I am intending to buy some more for some other dark spots I would like to highlight that the corded connection between the light and solar panel will allow me to do because I need to go around a corner to get the panel in the sun. The area I have this mounted in is partially shady but the unit still gets enough power to last for several hours after dark which is 11 to 12 o-clock around here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer88 Works great, very bright!
After the 4th, I realized I needed to light up the stars and stripes and this solar flag light did the job. Installation was a breeze. It took me less than five minutes (with most of that time adjusting the step ladder around the hedges). The solar panel can be mounted separately from the LED light, which is nice since it gives a lot of flexibility with the positioning and the cable connecting the two can stretch close to three feet. I ended up attaching both the panel and light together, plugging in the cable and mounting everything about fifteen inches from my Valley Forge flag. By the way, all the hardware that you'll need is in the box, including screws and anchors to mount the parts to a wall if you want. After pulling the plastic tab from the battery compartment on the solar panel, I let it charge up for the day. I can tell you, after a few evenings of coming home and seeing Old Glory lit up, I'm impressed. The light is very bright, about sixteen times brighter than a standard solar light according to the information on the box, and it lights up the entire flag, really giving it a nice, warm look.

I modified the light to fit into a wall lantern light. I worked out well. light comes on at dusk and stays lit all night. Battery gets charged during the day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by milkman Looks like good value for the price.
It took 5 minutes to install this product , no tools were need , I installed it on an existing flag pole that was mounted on the front of my home . I only needed a ladder to reach the flag pole . I checked it the first night after it was installed , and it is working perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soundman5000 PERFECT for lighting up a Security yard sign (think ADT). Best value I have found in years!
I did not purchase this light for the intended purpose of lighting a flag so I can not say how well it works for that but I would think as loog as the flag is regular size it would work fine based on my experience. I needed something to light my security system yard sign. I mounted it on my security yard sign (Think ADT) so it will shine bright at night to keep the bad guys away! Works PERFECT!
All I can tell you is this is the most product I have received for this little bit of money in a long time. If charged in direct sunlight it will go till dawn and the light is much brighter than I expected and is much better than the solar lights of a just a few years ago. I find the light bouncing off my sign is bright enough to light my walkway so it is very bright for its size. To those other reviewers that had trouble please note that if the light will not work try turning the battery around as unlike a conventional bulb some LED bulbs must be hooked up + & - correctly or the led will not light so check that before you get upset and return the light to the store. I did find it is hard to tell if the battery is installed correctly so try it prior to mounting to save you some aggravation. My light arrived charged so I was able to test it prior to charging and verify I had the battery in the right way. Make sure you test it in a completely dark room or at night as this unit has an electric eye so it will not turn on in daylight or light from a porch light or something will keep this unit off so keep that in mind when testing and placement. I have been using my light about a month now and it still works great from dusk till dawn.
I highly recommend this product and find it one of, if not the BEST value ever!
