Go FOR It!
This is a terrific solar lantern. Well built. Metal and glass. Bright light. I have purchased solar lanterns from four other sources, and not one of them measures up to this Premier Solar Pathway Light. As a consequence, I have now purchased fourteen of them - seven for myself and seven as gifts for friends. One caveat though. There appears to be something of a quality control problem at the manufacturer. Quite a few of my fourteen units would not function - bad battery packs. However, Earthtech arranged for replacements to be sent to me. I installed them - not too difficult - and the lanterns have been performing beautifully ever since.
If you give them enough direct sun (6 hrs?) they will shine, BRIGHTLY, until sun up.
Now, if you do receive a non-funtioning unit, not to worry. Earthtech will take care of you.They are good people.
