      • Garden focal point

      This product looks beautiful in the evening. Only problem was that it came on too quickly and drained the battery too quickly as well. I made a slight modification to it with a new solar cell and it works great. It is a sturdy item and looks great surrounded by my mom's lilies!

      Looks Great - Construction is Lousy

      By Yorkiemamax3

      from Martinsburg, WV

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Looks great

      Cons

      • Construction Not So Great

      Best Uses

      • In the garden

      The Northern Lights Spheres really look great and cool when they are working. However, I've had two of the glass spheres become loose and rain got inside. We had to re-glue them back on. We've also had trouble with the batteries. Finding replacements is expensive. Replacements don't recharge due to lack of voltage or too much voltage. Finding an exact match is difficult and very pricey! I still like them but I wish they worked better and didn't cost me extra money and headaches.

      Puts pazazz to flower beds

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I have had these lights before but the new ones are made so much better. The glass ball on top screws on and is a much better quality. The batteries on one lasted a day and the other about 4 days. Living in a small town I could not find replacements. I called customer service and they were so nice to work with.

                      Entertaining and soothing! Love 'em!

                      Verified Buyer

                      I live in Pennsylvania, and the slowly changing lights entertain me year-round. I have about six of the older model, and I just bought six of the new model. I love the new, convenient battery compartment, and the new glass globe seems sturdier than the previous model. Still, this is fragile, and I place these lights in areas that won't be hit by icicles and wayward baseballs.

                              Decided not to bother with so many flowers that need watering in one of my gardens. These lights(bought 4)give a pleasant look during the day & my garden looks radiant in the evening now that I've added a little lighting. :0)
