Solar spot lights

Postby ashtondav » Sat Sep 23, 2017 1:26 pm

I am looking for solar spotlights for the garden.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Spotlights-Adj ... +spotlight

I've had a look in Leroy merlin Malaga and not found the ideal. I don't want to use amazon.

If it's just Amazon you don't want to use, there are some on ebay & various other sites..

Those lights are only 200 lumens i.e. 25 Watts i.e. "dim as a Toc-H lamp"!

These on the other hand are much brighter and I can recommend them: https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B01ATC ... UTF8&psc=1

They come on automatically at dusk, and when anything passes the sensor, they shed a really bright light for a minute or two. I've bought several packs for around my garden walls and now I feel much happier being able to see out into the garden at night and the garden looks lovely too.

Friends have also bought them and love them.

Leroy Merlin gave me the idea with a single lamp with only 7 LED's (as opposed to 20) and the one unit cost €17+ Ive often seen interesting products displayed in LM and when googling similar come up with a much better and cheaper product - usually from Amazon.

With solar lighting you really need to note the number of LED's in them, many that are sold as so called spotlights in Chinese shops etc., have only 1 LED.
