Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pegcruzr Not a bad unit but installation is awkward
This unit was purchased to illuminate a 7.5' X 7' shed. From the initial charge, the illumination seems adequate. The instructions seemed straightforward but the installation proved to be a bit challenging. There is no template to lay out either the mounting of the solar unit on the roof (or gable, depending on personal preference), nor for the light unit itself. There is a "166 mm" line on the back of the light for guidance but who has a metric tape measure handy - anyone? I measured as carefully as I could between the two mounting holes but still missed the mark. This is where a template would have proven useful. I ended up just using one screw and mounting the light onto it. Pilot holes are a necessity if one has a vinyl or resin shed; the panhead screws (supplied) just will not penetrate the tough plastic without some help. Unless Sunforce provides better instructions and mounting templates, I would not recommend this unit.

Bought this for my 8 x 12 shed basically to have light to service my generator during power interruptions. I allowed the device to charge in bright sunlight for 1.5 days but the light output remained minimal. I have an LED flashlight with 3 AAA batteries that produces more light than this device. It would be very helpful on the part of the manufacturer if the "lumens" (light output) were included as part of the specifications to use as a guide.

My daughter and her family live in Switzerland. They have a 2nd home up in the mountains that has solar power. These lamps are perfect for them!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MGHL pretty good
just purchased, the instructions did not include what the switch on the side meant (I and O) only complaint the light needs to be turned on manually, I am, guessing. Yes when on it only last 3 hours, so although a nice light and easy to install I wish now I would have purchased a light that stayed lit longer..
