                  Best Uses

                    I ordered 2 and 1 was defective, so I sent it back. I received the replacement and it works great so far! I even had a neighbor comment on how lovely the spheres looked in my garden, and he asked where I got them...told him Gardners Supply !

                            should call them battery powered

                            Pros

                            • Crackled Glass Is Pretty

                            Cons

                            • Changing Batteries Often

                            Best Uses

                              I purchased 3 lights. They worked beautifully the first two nights. They don't have an on/off switch, you just put them in the sun and the sun should charge the battery so it stays lit during the night. The third day, I changed the batteries and they worked another two days. I think these should be called battery powered lights because I don't believe there is any solar charging going on.

                              I have these placed in full sun...9-10 hours of sun per day, but they only stay lit for a few hours even with fresh batteries. I have other solar powered lights that are truly solar powered and work all night and I've only had to change the batteries once over a two-year period.

                              The crackled glass is pretty in the daytime (even when not lit), but too expensive to purchase them for that reason only.

                                    Solar powered globe, absorbs the sunlight by day and glows at night (like a planet in the sky). Colors are beautiful - and the piece adds to the garden design. We had two of these solar globes before - and the globe on one shattered. We will see how this one holds up.
