This solar light includes three different mounting options: post mount, pier/flat mount and wall mount, giving you the flexibility to choose the best solar application for your outdoor solar light. Stylish and easy to install, this light is the perfect solar lighting solution for your outdoor space. The Polaris series is constructed of weather-resistant, rustproof rigid resin with a black finish to withstand a variety of different climates, including coastal. Designed with our cutting-edge GS solar LED light bulb technology, this solar light provides 360° illumination and a brightness of 130 Lumens in a warm white (2700K) color temperature and includes a High/Low mode switch that extends nightly light duration up to 12 hours of operation on a full charge. No wiring is needed. Just place this solar light in a spot with ample direct sunshine and let the sun do the rest. This fixture is available in both black and white color options.

About ten years ago, my hard-wired lamp stopped working and rather than dig up the lawn to rewire it I bought a solar light. The Gama Sonic Polaris is a replacement for the old light and I was amazed at how much solar lighting has improved. I want a light for a little additional lighting on the walkway and this light does the job; I also like the soft light it provides. I’ve had the light for about three weeks. Gama Sonic provided some additional assembly instructions on stickers attached to the outside of the box; these additional instructions made assembly clearer for me. The set screw method used to attach the light to a post may cause some trouble in the future after continued use but it's OK for now. My permanent location only gets direct sun for about three hours and then sunlight filtered through tree branches for another two to three hours so I was a little concerned that it wouldn't get enough sunlight. However, after an initial two-day charge in full sun and then daily charging for about three hours in the permanent location, I’ve found that the lamp stays lit all night; at least eight hours on the low light setting. On the high light setting the lamp stays lit for about five hours and even that is enough time for my use. I’ll have to wait to see what happens when the sun is lower in the fall and winter but so far I’m very happy with the light. As the attached photo indicates, the bulb gives enough light to guide someone along the sidewalk but not enough light to see too much detail. But it does just what I wanted it to do.

    I own many of the Gama Sonic solar lights and love them, but this one was very frustrating to assemble. I was disappointed in this one. The inside plastic seems like it is too tall and when I tried putting the screws and nuts on, they would just pop off. I tried inserting the screws in both ways, but either the insert does not fit properly or the screws are too short. After a few hours of trying to find the nuts that popped off, I gave up and I will have to look for longer screws to replace these so I can finish the assembly. I also have a white light in this model, and although it was difficult, I got it screwed together. This light should perform as well as that one when it is completed. It has the same soft lighting of 130 lumens and the LEDs are equal to a 10W bulb. I do like that the solar panels surround the light to collect more sun and the Off/High/Low metal lever is easy to access under the finial (after removing the set screw). I also like the traditional-bulb look instead of just LEDs. It should run dusk to dawn if it has had enough sunlight during the day. One of the best features of this item is that it comes with 3 different mounting options - 3" pole, wall, or flat surface.

    The Polaris solar lamp is ruggedly constructed and designed to weather the elements. The heavy black resin construction will not rust or corrode. I was happy to see good design used to control water penetration to the mounting screws and the top finial piece (this piece pops off to allow access to the on/off/intensity toggle switch). The included LED light is a warm-white color; NOT the bright white light that I hate! Kudos! The lamps sits on my post out front and got about six hours of sunlight charging before it rained that evening. The light turned on at dusk and lasted through the night like a champ! Very impressed with how bright the light was; I took little puppy out on his evening walk and was happy the ground was lit and we didn't trip over any thing! Although the light has two intensity settings (low and high); I don't remember which one I had it on, lol! But it seemed adequate for me! The one thing I wish was better was the installation instructions. Included was a fold out that had basic installation instructions; but I think better drawings of where and how the set screws and nuts went in would be extremely helpful. I took me a while to figure out that metal set screws will win the fight with plastic resin; I couldn't make heads or tails of where those other nuts were for until after I screwed in the sets screws and they were just spinning around, lol! Yes, better install instructions with illustrations of where set screws and nuts go would be helpful to the average DIY'er! Overall, a very handsome light that's weather-rugged and is a classic design.

    When I opened the Box, I was amazed at the quality built Solar light. The Solar light came with three mountings - Wall Mount, Post Mount and a Flat Mount. The unit was easily put together in less than ten minutes. After putting the unit together, the manufacturer reccomends that you charge the Unit in the sun for 48 hours before turning on. The Light should be in a location that receives sunlight most of the day. After initial charging you can toggle the LED Bulb light into a Low or High output. At sundown, the unit automatically goes on - in High it will last about 5 to 6 hours; in low about 10 to 12. This is not designed as a Security light and should not be bought for that purpose. The Light is made of excellent High Quality resin and will last for years to come.

    I have to say they seem pretty good. The fact the light bulb potentially lasts 10 years is kind of crazy but they are brand specific meaning currently a replacement bulb has to be purchased from Gama Sonic. For the install, it was pretty easy, drill holes in wall and mount. No problem. As for assembling the light, it sounds super easy but it was painful. the screws to hold the cap on were too short and the top fit was super stiff which did not allow for much flexibility. It was way more difficult than the instructions laid out. Plus the instructions provided were pretty pathetic. However, once assembled and installed the light has worked well right from the get go in front of the garage doors and is just fine. So far so good after about a month. Let's see how it is in a year.

    Set screws attaching head to collar and collar to lamp post lamp were too short, and stripped out in the plastic fixture body when I tried to get them to tighten. The light the fixture emits is nice.

    The light was easy to assemble and install on our columns. We've had them about a month and are pleased with the amount of light provided, even after a cloudy day. I was skeptical of them not being made from metal, but am now a convert. The material is sturdy, won't scratch or rust and hopefully won't fade like my old lamps.

    I've already sent a summary! This light is so dim, even on a sunny day, it was a waste of money! I'm planning on installing motion activated flood lights all around the outside which can be remotely controlled.
