This unit works extremely well. The light that comes on at night is ample for a patio environment. The sensor works great as the light brightens when someone approaches...

I really like the Xepa Stay on All Night light for the dual brightness feature with the motion sensor. On high output it puts out a fairly white light about equal to a 60 - 75 watt bulb. It will cut back to the low output in about a minute if it detects no motion. At low output it is about equal to our driveway solar lights in brightness. Maybe 40 watts. With the solar lights on one side of the driveway and this on the other, it makes for a cozy look to our house. The glass does have a pattern in it that causes the light beam to refract and give a crystal pattern across the driveway. I am not sure if this is a plus but the neighbors say it looks very nice. So far as of this writing, it has stayed on from dusk till dawn every night on the motion detect setting. I got the light on a sale for about $20 off normal price. I would recommend giving this light a look if you are considering solar powered lights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OCEANSIDE Works great and casts nice pattern
I used a 6 foot 3" PVC pipe to mount this lamp and it came out well.
The lamp works with two modes - High (which runs about 4 hours) and Low (which runs at least 10 hours. It's still on when I go to bed).
In Low mode, the motion detector turns it to high mode which is a nice feature.
The etching in the glass casts a nice pattern on the ground.

This light works great. The LEDs are bright and the solar power feature makes installation effortless. I took the old 110v light off the pole, removed the wire and used the set screws to install this one. I keep it on low because it lasts all night but high will get through most of the night. Does not illuminate like a 100w bulb, but cosmetically is very pleasing. Very well build product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AJofTX Failed After One Year By Water Penetration
The unit was extremely easy to install on a standard 3" side walk pole. It worked fine for over a year. The unit has a motion detector to put out brighter light when someone passes nearby. The intensity of the normal light is dim. the unit did manage to stay lit all night after full charge.
The unit failed one day. Its electronic board compartment had water penetration. It created shorts since the epoxies were found to be melted.
The quality of construction inside is below average. The battery wires were pinched by the compartment cover and lost insulation. The glass enclosure of the unit has bubbles which throws shadows on ground. Clear glass would be preferable. The battery pack is rated for 500 re-charges which must be replaced.
The unit would have been fine if it lasted 10 to 15 years. It failed totally after one year. So, the product cannot be recommended due to its cost (~ $100). However, if these replaceable parts were easily and inexpensively available, then one could consider recommending the unit, The customer Service is poor since no one picks the phone even after long waits.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Name worked, for a little while
I bought two for my back yard. Easy to install, less than 10 minutes for both. Looked great and worked for about 4 months. One still works great, but the other turns on and off rapidly (cycles about every 5 seconds) all night. I unplugged it, reset it, etc... It is not a problem with the light it gets, as nothing has changed since I installed. Maybe the light sensor went bad. I emailed customer support with XEPA, and got... no reply. Of course I am past the warranty so I am stuck with one light and one bird perch.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by woody disappointed in this solar powered outdoor lamp
This outdoor lamp is very dim. It hardly gives off any illumination. It hasn't been particularly sunny out so perhaps it will get brighter some day. I have it on what they call the conservation mode. There is a switch for maximum brightness but that would stay on continuously up to 4 hours , until the battery drains. I was looking for a dusk to dawn solar lamp that would give brighter output. It's already mounted and not worth the trouble taking it down or I would return it. If it was $25 instead of $75 I wouldn't complain and I have to admit that it does what it claims to do.
