Lights work as expected. The length of the lights is VERY deceiving because it includes the lead cord from the solar panel to the string the lights, so as a result the length of the the useable light bulbs is a lot shorter than the total length of the cord published. The actual length of the lights is closer to 115 inches vs. what is published . As a result if I want to cover the length of my deck I will have to buy 2 sets of lights.
Merchant Response:Good afternoon, we do state in the specifications that the length is as follows: (Solar panel to lantern: 63" inches) & (Dimensions: 177" x 1.25" x 2" in (LxWxH)). Therefore, 177" minus 63" from panel to first lantern = 114" of lights. I can certainly see how this may seem confusing and will update the product page to make that more clear. Thank you for your feedback!
