Solar Outdoor Lighting ReviewBackyard Boogi
This solar lamp has 32 individual LED lights, a photovoltaic solar panel, and 2 rechargeable lithium batteries. Solar outdoor lights recharge during the day, automatically turn on at dusk and remain illuminated overnight, depending on how much sunlight they receive during the day. This light has three different settings so you can choose to have the light come on through motion or stay on by itself. It also has a dim mode where the light runs at half power and only switches to full power when it senses motion (through human induction).
