Great Light for Location Without Electricity
We have a 12' x 12' goat barn that we needed a light in. There is absolutely no way to effectively run electricity to location, plus why would you to a barn where you only need one interior light. I researched lighting and most of the reviews on the products I found rated them inferior to ineffective, until I stumbled on this light. The reviews were great so I took a chance. This light, while not expensive, is not cheap. It was backordered, so I had to wait almost 2 months to get it, but it was worth the wait. My husband installed it in about 1/2 (he is reasonably handy) and it works great. I've only used it for a few weeks, it really lights up the barn, you could do some real work in this light. It has a pull cord to turn it on, we are concerned that this cord may not hold up, it is a thin cord, it would be better if the light had a wire to a switch that you could mount to the wall. Also, the wire from the solar panel to the light is very short (6' +/-) and that makes it difficult to locate the light in the best location in the barn. We are very happy (so far-we've had it a couple of weeks) with this lighting choice.
ProsEasy to install, puts out a nice amount of light.
ConsWire from light to solar panel needs to be longer (8'-10' would be ideal). Pull cord to turn on light looks like it might not hold up.
Best UsesOutside locations that need lighting but have no power (small barns, sheds, small greenhouses).
