How are these any different than the ones from the dollar stores that cost...well, a dollar?
These are about 3x the size and 3x the light throw of the dollar store versions. I own both. These can be put next to a walkway and will light about 3-4 feet of the walkway. The dollar store ones are, to put it nicely, 'accent lighting'. They won't light up anything but if you put a series of them next to a walkway, it'd help someone know where the walkway is. I put the rosewills next to my front walk so the UPS guy wouldn't trip over the steps anymore and that worked until they died. I put the dollar store ones on the property line so I could see if my black dog crossed over into my neighbors yard in the dark. Couldn't see the dog with them, but he'd blot one out when he walked in front of it and I could see that and tell him to get back into his own yard.
As an aside, I bought six of these and six of the dollar store lights about 15 months ago. All of the dollar store lights still work and look like new. All of the rosewills are dead. Couple of them look okay but don't come on, so I'm guessing dead battery. Couple of the rosewills have the solar strip peeling off and it wont stick back down, so not sure if its battery or the charging strip separated from the charging circuit.
I'm going to have to disagree on their quality.
I had a set. they started to dim in about 6 months (and it was summer!) and all died at about 13 months. (wonder if they designed this since I think they have a 1 year warranty)
These haven't been listed here on SD, this low, since August of 2012!In for a set, good price, and always like to have spares around for when the sets I have go out one by one throughout the years.
