I have 3 strands now...all work great, but there are some tricks Apr 13, 2012
I recently bought one strand of these in blue and put it around a bridge that goes over a stream in my backyard. It works wonderfully and I liked it so much I bought two more for a trellis that goes around and over my deck for the grapevines to grow around.
Here are some tricks that make it work great: First, peel off the plastic clear cover over the solar light. This is there only to protect the glass of the light during shipping. If you leave it on, sunlight can't get to it well enough to charge it.
There is a knob on the back that you turn to turn this on, off, or flashing but if you just try to move it, it will seem like it's moving and won't so you may think it broken. You need to REMOVE this rubbery knob, then turn the switch on under it, then put it back on. It's there to keep it waterproof but you have to turn the switch on to make this work.
I'm one of the people who reads all directions but I could see these being an issue if you don't and people wondering why they don't work.
It lights up really bright and nicely and mine were not light blue...they do look white...although I did buy the light blue strand for my bridge. These are great lights for year round but during the holidays, just turn the knob to "flashing" and you have instant holiday lights already up!
They turn on and off automatically each night...you can't beat that and I couldn't find a cheaper strand for this many lights and this long of a strand anywhere else.

Copper Wire Solar Lights Jan 16, 2012
By Storybook Forest
These are great lights and work just as advertized. I have two sets.
Set one is outdoors and works great after 6 weeks use. It has rained and we've had two solid freezes with no ill effects.
Set two; My cat chewed through or an earthquake snapped the wire connecting the lights to the solar panel of the second set. Fortunately the wires are copper and were really easy to splice back together after snipping the frayed ends. The fact that they snapped or were chewed through does not bode well for the long term durability of the light strand but the quick and easy repair redeemed that flaw. They work great now that they have been repaired.
The lights are soft and look like stars instead of glaring headlights. They do not light up a porch or sidewalk, instead they cast something like a swath of moonlight, and work quite well as accent lighting.

worth the price... i guess.. Dec 08, 2011
By Mother of A & B
I do agree that the "white" is somewhat soft blue. And as already mentioned by some other reviewer for similar but different colored lights.. this one is definitely not gonna win any prize for outlandish Christmas lights. But it does look good against a dark backdrop. I also don't think that it stays on from dusk to dawn, its more like dusk + 4 hrs (which during winter is not much, but it could also be cause its not getting the sun-time that it needs to be fully charged)

Central Florida favorite solar Christmas lights Jan 02, 2012
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2FYGGA2ZX64M3 This video shows what these solar Christmas lights look like in a flashing mode - on a 4 foot tall red cedar tree in Central Florida. Even after the heavy overcast days these lights keep flashing all night long, until dawn.
Although not so obvious from the video, these lights' glow is bluish, not white - as other reviewers mentioned before me.

Fairies in our backyard Jun 01, 2012
By Deborraha C. Burnett
Did not expect much for the price so was amazed at how well these worked right out of the box. We wanted to create an 'enchanted forest with fairies" look off the patio and this is perfect. Yes they do have a bluish cast which is just what we wanted. Its only been a week but so far so good. I just ordered another set to fill in some blank spots in the 'forest'. It was really cloudy for two days and they still worked great those nights.
