This is a great deal for a solar light, however you have to have an Aldi near you.

1 Lumen light (brighter than most lights under $4)
Stainless steel construction

I work in the industry and this is a great light for the price.

For those looking for a higher lumen and glass lens, this is a great set of 10 lights:

By the way, don't be fooled by the number of LED. It's the lumen output that's important. Never buy a solar light that does not give lumen output. To give an example, the Frontgate ProSeries IV lights, which are 45 lumens (not to mention over 4 star review), only have 2 LEDs:

Thanks for posting!

This set off my alert for solar LED lights. I see that you "work in the industry," so perhaps you can help.

I have a small backyard - the size of a living room - with just concrete; there isn't any dirt. It's pitch black there at night. I want to grill and barbecue with friends at night once in a while, so I've been considering solar LED lights. I do not own the place, so I can't drill holes or make permanent changes.

Do you have any suggestions on what I can use for adequate lighting? Perhaps something I can hang or attach to the walls of the backyard? There are metal bars on the side and there is a fence, so perhaps that can serve as a foundation of sorts.

Thank you,
Tofu Vic

Do you have wooden posts? If so, post caps can work. There are ones out there that are 4-8 lumens. Standard is around 2 lumen.

If not, depending on how much light, these may work:

1 lumen lantern - http://www.lowes.com/pd_10067-591...facetInfo=

100 pack string light - http://www.lowes.com/pd_330071-59...523&rpp=48


Or if you don't mind DIY something to attach to the metal pole, this 4 pack is 5 lumens, metal construction and puts a nice pattern to the ground due to the cut outs on the bottom:

If these are the ones my neighbors have, 1 lumen seems just bright enough to illuminate the device and not much else beyond it. Walmart one may be a good option. The Frontgate one would be idea but these things tend to have a low life expectancy.

Thanks for all the help! I'm looking into these at the moment. I have given you reputation points.

I try to be. I figured if I was renting the place out, I'd want the tenants to be respectful of the residence, so that's what I do personally.

The walmart ones are really nice actually. I had the first gen ones in my yard for over 18 months and they still work great.

The frontgate ones have laminated solar panels (same as the lamination on the large commercial panels) so they will never discolor and stop working. Of course the LED is good for over 20,000 hours. The construction is metal and glass so it's pretty durable. Battery needs to be changed out every 2-4 years depending on how hot the temperature gets.

If you like the frontage lights and would prefer "lifetime" warranty, you can get the Hammacher version for $10 more per light:

FYI, like most private label products, the manufacturer and stats change season to season. For sure this year's product is stainless steel, as opposed to the plastic stated in the review.
