Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trespapa Solar LED light for patio grill.....works great
This solar power light was purchased to provide a light for my grill that did not require power wires and that came on when I walked out to the grill with my hands full. It works fine in this mode and I am pleased with it.

The instructions were easy to follow. The only difficulty, was getting up the ladder. The settings, in the instructions were easy to follow as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Flexible, portable light for travel and home.
Out of the Box a Light w/Electric Eye and a Rechargeable power source with 15ft wire, a Manual and a bag of screws weighing less than 3lbs, can fit in your overhead airline bag. I’m installing this in a corner of the house that has electric security lights I don’t use, because the electric eye doesn’t work. The Solar lights will be my primary security light, with the heavy metal electric as a backup storm light.
The LED lights, according to the manual, are 200 Lumen, 6500K. My electric 100 Watt halogen is about 1,600 lumen. There are 45, up to 15 watt LED bulbs and I thought that was more Lumens than 200. Math aside, this LED light is brighter than I expected, but not as bright or hot as the electric flood. It lights the entire side of a small yard next to a patio.
The Motion Distance in the LED Manual says good up to 50ft. Walking straight at the electric eye in the dead of night it didn’t light until about 15 feet, but it wasn't fully charged.
A Features of this LED Security light, the Electric eye is on a swivel. It can be moved left and right. After installation you can change the area the light covers, that is convenient for security. The 150 degree motion range is about right. Ater walking into the eye to turn on the light, I stood still until the lights went off. The lights were triggered when I moved my hand.
Portability makes these a very attractive deal, if they consistently recharge. I'll know that with long term use. The lightweight design is good for backpacking. I know some condo like hotel chains that could use them as well.
Cons, The Xepa manual could give more in depth information about a couple of features.
Xepa wants you to replace batteries with their proprietary battery, The 15ft wire is thin and looks like a chew toy for our wild squirrels. I’m devising a plan to hide them in a plastic wire cover as I write!
As a portable solar light I've rated this 4, if I was rating it as a permanent house feature it would be lower because of the light plastic design.

Fast and easy to install. Direction of light is adjustable as well as the sensitivity. It works perfect to light up walkway between our house and shop.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by omallard Didn't work
Everything went beautifully until I went to connect the solar panel to the light. The boot on the female piece is not long enough to connect to the male part.
To complicate things I have been tearing my hair out trying to get someone in customer service. The system puts me on forever hold assuring me how important my call is and then, atfer four or five minutes dumps me.
I'll be returning the product and checking out Lowe's tomorrow. Thanks for asking.

Doesn't work when I walk by, you need to stand right under the sensor. Tried everything from repositioning solar panel and sensor several times.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Greentree40 Failed after a few months
Easy to install, great light source but the unit failed after just a couple of months. Inspection of the solar 'panel' showed that moisture had seeped in corroding the connections and battery. Very poor design for an item that's meant to be outside. If you have one and it's still working, do yourself a favor and seal all around any potential openings that water can enter.
