        Pros

        • Battery life is good

        Cons

        • Glass Breaks Off The Post

        Best Uses

        • Pots Out Doors

        I bought 2 of these previously, and both had the glass globe break off at the post. Looks like this one has a different support for the glass, hopefully it will last as they really are pretty.

        Batteries that work would be nice

        Pros

        • Brilliant colors

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I purchased two in November. Disappointed that they didn't light up right away. Put in full sun to charge. Still nothing. Finally bought new batteries and immediate, beautiful changing colors. I also purchased two Fiber optic solar lights, same problem. You will love these once you get new batteries. Don't advertise batteries included when so many customers have had to replace them for the product to work.

              I bought one for myself and the other for my mother. It really is a well constructed, heavy glass garden accent light....the colors change smoothly and are very bright and beautiful. Only one problem, the rechargeable batteries were dead....I had to get replacements. Soon as they charged, the light worked perfectly!

                    I love this sphere and will probably order more. The lighting pots are great for a big splash of color but this little sphere is great for just a hint of something. I love it in the garden away from the patio area so it catches everyone's eye. Several friends have asked where i got them and want one for themselves. Will make a great Christmas gift this year.

                              They don't work at all. I am hoping it is just bad batteries and will replace them as soon as I can find rechargeable AAA batteries. Still I am very disappointed with this purchase. Also ... I bought 2 of these and one of them would NOT screw into the base correctly. We rigged it to stand.

                              These were a big disappointment, after the big hit we had with the illuminated solar power planters (one we bought for ourselves and one for a gift.)

                              Possibly the problem is with the batteries being old or weak, and I'm going to replace them, but if that is the problem it's one that Gardener's Supply should have corrected in advance.
