Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Housewife Not a Wall Mount!
When I ordered SPX 213, the light that comes in the mail is the light meant for a light post with no other attachments. When I read the instructions it does state that the wall mount is item #SPX 223. With an actual price of $109 and it has a lumen of 200 not 300. So the picture is wrong on this website if it is still showing a wall mounted light. No where does it state the dimensions for the plate fitter that adheres to the wall. I need those dimensions for a stone column I had built.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Coloradohermit Looks nice, worked only one night.
When I saw that I had a chance to get one of these I jumped on it. I really needed a outside light that I could put on the front of my Tall Barn Style storage building that's between the house and my new workshop so I could see to find my way to the house when I've been working late in my shop. Without playing tag with the outside lights or having to remember to take a flashlight out to the shop with me for when I'm ready to come in for the night.
So when I got this I was very excited about. Till I got it out of the box. That was when I noticed that the square top of the light was twisted just enough out of square to the mounting side that it looked bad. Then I saw that it was also cockeyed sideways too. After I managed to twist it back and bend it a little so that its all nice a square I got it mounted high up on the front of my storage building. It had a good 8 hours or so before dark to get charged. After sundown and it finally started getting dark it turned on. Not very bright but I figured it was because it hadn't had long enough to charge. I'm not sure how long it stayed on but it wasn't long since when I looked out an hour later it was out already. And that was the first, last, and only time it came on.
I've tried changing the switch setting from 6hrs. to 12hrs. and gave it another day, didn't matter. Went out after dark and played with the switch. It would flash when changing it from off to 6hrs and when changing it from off to 12 hrs it would give another short flash. And that's all I've been able to get out of it.
Even if it worked like its supposed to I'm kinda worried about how its mounted to the building. It sticks out quit a bit and has a lot of surface area to catch the wind. And the wind blows around here a lot. I frequently get gust over 50mph. The mounting bracket for this only has 2 short small diameter screws that stick out of it and threw 2 small holes in the mounting back of the light with 2 small cap nuts that go on the little screws. That is all that holds the light to the building.
With the directions that come with it there isn't anything showing how to change the battery in it. But if I remember right it says the battery will need to be changed after a year or two. If there was more to the direction pamphlet or booklet and showed how to take it apart and replace the switch it would help. I guess I'll have to see if I can take it apart and see what's wrong with the switch or if its something else.
As it is I can say it isn't very well made and not worth buying or even putting up. If it worked like its supposed to do then it would be a great light. Unfortunately it doesn't work.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by IronAvatar Decent LED outdoor lighting
Installation is very easy, no need to run wires. Performance noticeably degrades in cold weather, but this is expected when batteries get cold. The lamp looks very nice, but I think with the size they could put a larger battery. Right now it is winter where I live, and the light does not have an all-night run time, but it is nice and bright when it does work. We'll have to see how it performs in warmer weather.
