Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Lasted two months, not recommended
I installed 8 of these on my deck. These assemblies let in moisture and the battery terminals corroded to the point that the batteries and lights stopped working. Even with silicone at the base the assemble allows moisture into the light and battery area. It is only a matter of time before the terminals rust out. They could solve this with non corroding terminals but as the unit is now it does not work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jjy 3 of 4 work well
I bought these to top four posts around a patio. They are easy to assemble. Fit easily on the posts as described but one of the four is obviously less bright than the others. I even tried moving them around thinking that maybe that one got less sun.

Solar lights are easy to install over vinyl posts, fit snug, give off nice lighting, would recommend, price a bit high, hoping lighting lasts, only first week up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Good deck light option
Quality product and a good option if you're looking for post cap lights. I just wish they were a warm light rather than a white light, but that's just a preference I have. They were worth keeping because they are of high quality and they serve the purpose that I was hoping for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nana Solar Post Top for Railing on Deck
This solar light is really exceptionally good with a soft white light that actually produces a good light. Much better quality solar than any we have purchased before. It is on the expensive side but is a good quality light.
However, the measurement is a True 4"x4" to fit on a TRUE 4"x4" post. The post that can be ordered to fit this product for the deck is only 4 foot tall, however, and we needed to have 8 ft. tall posts for our decking. This made the solar light top to large for the post because to purchase a 4"x4" wooden post it has a measurement of 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" so the light frame is too large. It can be modified to fit but this certainly takes away the ease of installation. When purchasing this item, it needs to be noted that it will only fit the post made for this product.

A lot of reviewers are complaining that these lights don't fit on a 4x4 post. That's because a 4x4 wooden post doesn't measure 4" x 4". These are designed for a post that does measure 4"x4", such as a vinyl/composite post sleeve used for a railing on a deck. If you want one that fits on a 3.5" x 3.5" post, buy one designed for that.
Also, those that are saying "I bought a bunch if these and none of them work"- did you remove the piece if plastic that keeps the battery from making contact??!! There's a little piece of plastic at one end of the battery that needs to be removed so the battery can make contact. Otherwise it won't work.
I have been trying one of these while deciding what I want to do for a railing on my deck. I'm impressed with how it looks. Definitely bright enough, and even light.

Bought several for pool area. About half wouldn't come on. Ones with 2 yellow batteries have a different light bulb than the one with the 1 blue battery. Bulb on blue battery one seems to put out stronger light. They really do look nice and fit well on my railing. Just wish I could get enough of the same one that would work!!!!
