  1. I can’t wait to put the post lights on my DIY wood pillars when the package arrived. The lights were intended to be mounted on a short post, which I have cut in half because I didn’t want the post lamp sit far too high above the plants. Turns out it exceeded my expectation when the night comes. Beautiful glow of light cascaded on the lawn….The dark corner in my garden was lit up quite well.
    As far as the pros and cons,the cap light has 2 options of lighting: a warmer amber light and a day white light. I preferred the warm light so this added bonus was not a huge deal to me. The light includes 1 Ni-MH battery with 600maH capacity and that seems a little bit larger than other solar lights I previously bought. How long do they stay illuminated? Well I figure they got about 8-10 hrs of light in them if you put them under direct sunlight for at least 8 hrs. It depends on the location of the lights and the amount of sun they get.
    The light also includes 2 mounting base: 4 x 4″(actual 4.1″) and 5 x 5″(actual 5.1″).I used the 4″ one for my 3.5″ post. It overhung the side a little so I needed to put the screws thru 2 screw holes from the top. The size screw holes is not applicable for my application but it might work for 4″ vinyl post. I recommend these lights and I will post update on the longevity of the lights at a later date.
  2. We decorated the house on a tight budget .My wife didn’t want to spend too much on getting lights/wires ran, and figured we live in sunny Arizona I’d give these solar powered post cap lights a try. So far I’m not disappointed they are mounted on the fence posts outside that gets the most exposure to the sun and seem to work until 5 in the morning. Definitely will be getting some more for the sides and back of the house.

Customer Reviews

  1. I bought this for my back patio cause sometimes I like to read outside at night and also to give some light to my backyard. Mounting it was a little complicated but I eventually figured a way to stake it into the ground. For my needs the charge was fine but if my backyard was a lot bigger than it is, I would want it to last a little longer. I’d say mine lasted at least 3 and a half hours before it started to dim.
  2. I live in an apartment with no outdoor lighting or outdoor plugs, so I needed something that I wouldn’t have to change out constantly. I ended up finding this awesome cute thing; it’s solar powered and it makes the backyard look like Victorian London. I will say though that pole is little too thin for my taste, but if you bolted down the base you won’t have any problems with it falling over.

Customer Reviews

We installed a wooden fence a few years ago and used wooden fencepost caps. What a mistake! Many have split and become worn, but with a never-ending array of home projects to tend to, replacing them had been low priority. However, we recently had some sand delivered for a project and the driver pulled his truck up to our fence and then dumped the load, completely breaking one of our fencepost caps in the process. Because there was now a broken fencepost cap to deal with, along with the others that were well deteriorated, we decided to investigate alternatives and discovered these solar cap lights. We had admired other people’s fences in our community topped with solar lights, so we thought we would give these a try. The solar lights arrived very nicely packaged. They were individually wrapped in a sturdy box. Each light was intact with no damage and appeared to be well constructed.

We immediately added the lights to our fence post but did not secure them with the included screw because we wanted to test them out for a week or two first. We had purchased solar string lights before that did not work properly or stopped working quickly, so we thought we would see how these do first.

Although the lights arrived late in the day and only had a few hours to charge—not the 6 to 8 hours outlined on the instruction sheet–they worked beautifully and have continued to work well since. They provide quite a bit of light. The product specs indicate that each cap casts 400 lumens, which is the equivalent of about 30 incandescent watts. Looking at the lights, this appears to be accurate.

The light is a soft white and lasts the whole night through. I am not sure if the same will be true in the winter when there is less sunlight, but even with minimal charging time, they worked well so we are optimistic. It is nice to have this extra light in out yard, especially since we have small dogs and sometimes must go out into the yard with them late at night or in the wee morning hours. Prior to buying these lights, our backyard had been a bit of a dark void, so it could feel a little spooky at times.

These lights enable us to see the dogs much better and even provide a bit of a magical feeling with their soft glow. Because these are motion-sensing lights, the lights brighten a bit when people get close to the round sensor on the cap, which is another nice feature. The only issue we have is that our posts are 3.5 x 3.5 inch, and these are 4 x 4 inch, so they are a bit large for our fenceposts; however, they are fine secured with the screw and do not look odd.

We debated building out the top of the post with some wood strips to make for a better fit, but we ultimately did not bother because we just do not have the time and read that a too tight fit is also not good for preserving the actual fenceposts.

Basically, we are looking to get a few more years out of our fence, and while it is not pretty to look at, these new caps help elevate our fence a bit. The posts came in a pack of 4 and we will likely be ordering more soon to replace some of our other really worn fencepost caps. We like that these are super easy to install—just press the button below the cap, pop the cap on the post, and secure with a single screw—making them manageable for people like us who are limited on time and not the most handy.

What Should You Consider?

  1. Install the site and fix it with screws.
  2. Turn on the switch, you only need to turn on the switch once, it will automatically turn on at dark, and turn off automatically at dawn.
  3. Test whether it can work normally, cover the solar panel, and see if the light can turn on.
  4. Install the lamp housing and fix it with stainless steel screws.

The Globe and 3 inch pole mount assembled OK , the instructions’ could be a little better regarding assembly and how to tighten the mounting screws, to the globe and also to the pole.
Assembly may be obvious to some but not for others!
After assembly I installed a 60Watt LED bulb, which draws only 9Watts lighting the globe nicely.
