The lamp pole material is solid. Assembly took about 2 minutes (excludes bolting to the ground). We placed it in our backyard at the entrance of the steps. The base of the lamp has a nice design and it needs to be bolted in something solid (Concrete, Asphalt, etc). The battery holds its charge quite well.
After fully charging and installing the light, it rained for two days. But to my surprise, the light delivered during these two rainy days without getting re-charged.
Lamp has two setting; 1 (Low intensity) & 2 (High Intensity). If the lamp is set to Setting-1, it will switch to Setting-2 as soon as any motion is detected and then automatically returns back to Setting-1. On setting-2, lamp continuously provides high intensity light but battery drains a little faster. Overall, the lamp lightens up about 30 feet diameter area. Changing the Setting from 1 to 2 does not cover more area but rather increases the light intensity only. There is also an OFF button that simply turns off the light completely.
The glass of the lamp has a pebbles design in it. What it does is that when the lamp turns on at night, you can see the big pebble shaped shadows on the ground. The shadows actually reduce the overall lighting and adds a LIGHT–SHADOW –LIGHT pattern to the overall environment which in fact is not quite soothing to the eyes. I have uploaded two pictures (Day-Picture & Night-Picture) from the same angle so you can see how the pebble shaped shadows look like.
Except for the pebbles pattern, I like everything about this light.

I was pleasantly surprised by the pattern this light casts on the ground. I was expecting just a basic flat light but the glass is etched in a way that turns the light on the ground into circular highlights that gives a very nice effect.
The materials are high quality and solid. The lamp looks elegant even during the day time.
It has two modes of operation; a bright light mode that lasts about 4 hours when fully charged each day by the Sun and a low light mode that comes on at dark and is still going by the time I go to bed. And the low-light mode provides plenty of light across a large area.
The lamp has a built in motion detector that activates the bright light mode when it is running in the low-light mode.
The assembly is easy with threaded connections and the lamp mounts on the post using three bolts that are provided in the box along with an allen wrench.
The product was designed to bolt to a deck or concrete patio and the bolts are provided to this. However, this is beyond my skill level so I used three 12” stakes into the ground. The base is about 12” wide so it does need to be attached to keep it upright. I was also thinking of putting in a terracotta pot with dirt and flowers around it, but it stays put using the stakes.
This is something you will enjoy for years – and you’ll love the pattern on the ground instead of just boring light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by realwrite Great for added security and curb appeal!
This lamp is just beautiful and adds so much to the appearance of our entry way....not only in curb appeal but also lighting up the walkway! The glass lamp projects a beautiful pattern onto the surrounding area and the featureless of it getting brighter as you approach is wonderful. It also produces enough light in the dim modeto illuminate the walkway and shrubbery. It is of quality materials and was east to assemble. I would highly recommend this lamp!

Construction is top notch. No pressed metal weakling with this post lamp.
The entire structure is thick cast aluminum. The lamp itself screws down around the top, the middle section screws together and you use three bolts to hold it all to the base. The wrench is included. No tools needed! It asssembles is about 15 minutes after unboxing. Only oneperson needed.
The light itself is very sturdy and also cast metal. The glass is real glass, no plastic to cloud up later. It's "seeded" meaning the glass is clear and has little bubbles blown into it all over. A very classy antigue glass look is the result. The LED casts a very bright white light. You can easily read by it if you were standing under the light. It's not a faint glow at all. About the equivalent of a 40-50watt bulb.
The base has three holes for the included mounting rods, which can be set in concrete or wood after drilling holes. Or, as with my installation in a flower bed, you just use the 15 inch long galvanized lawn spikes sold at Home Depot and pound all three into the ground. Either way, you have a rock solid installation.
The light sensor for dusk to dawn operation works reliably and the motion sensor will pick up movement within about ten feet or so. When on and fully charged the light does in fact last all night. Even in the fall when days are much shorter, before the sun comes up the light is still shining at full brightness. Much better than other lights. It needs about six hours of direct sunlight to charge fully.
I couldn't be more pleased with this light post. A very nice touch to the yard/sidewalk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Worked for 1 week
Worked for a week. called customer service @ Xepa and they told me to take the battery out and go to a hardware store to get it checked. I told them no and they sent me a new battery. Installed the new battery and it never worked since. Just got off the phone with customer service again and they told me to ship it to them and they will fix it and ship it back. What a hassle! Why not send me a new one with a returned shipping label to cover the cost to ship from PA to CA. Will never buy another Xepa product again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soldbydon Well-made; Needs battery replacement info
This is a high-quality aluminum light post with LED lantern that lives up to its advertised specifications. Takes only 10 minutes to assemble using the supplied allen wrench; however, does need mounted to a firm base such as a deck or concrete pad; concrete pad fasteners supplied. Packaging is good but supplier should have first placed components in clear plastic wrapping to avoid scuffs during shipment; unit had minor scuffs from rubbing its cardboard box. Recognizing that at some point the battery will need replaced, there is no info in the owner's manual about how to replace it or what type to use. As such, the lantern may not have a life longer than its battery, which could be just a couple years based on other solar outdoor LED lights I've purchased over the last 5 years. Hopefully there will be an update to the owners manual online when it comes time for battery replacement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulCoMat Very nice solar lamp
Easy to assemble but you need a concrete drill bit & hammer drill to install post on existing concrete. Assembly directions are clear. Post assembly threads are well made but you still need to be very carefull not to cross thread. Light works perfect. I like the low setting because it still goes on high when motion is detected and it is still plenty of light. Not sure I like the idea of replacing the batteries every 2 or 3 years but we shall see. I like the lamp enough to buy some for my posts.
