Beautiful bright blue lights work year round Mar 14, 2012
I have a metal bridge that goes across a stream in my backyard. After the yard guy oddly cut my last string of lights aomehow with a weed eater, it was time to string some new ones around the bridge.
I love the blue lights because it does not scream "holiday" so you can enjoy garden lights year round. Or lights around a porch or whatever! But come holiday, you can change these to the flashing setting and you've got your light show!
First, some trouble-shooting I noticed might could be an issue if one puts them up without reading the directions....
There is an on/off switch but it's covered by a non-movable tab. It appears that this is there to keep water from getting in from where you slide the switch. So it may appear to be on when you get it, but you actually need remove the tab to turn it on and then replace the tab. Easy to do...just pull it off, choose whether you want your lights just on or flashing, then replace it. And wait for dark for them to come on....
Secondly, there is a clear plastic film you can barely see over the solar light panel. Ithis protects it during shipping and all my solar items have them when they arrive If you don't peel this off, light won't get to the solar panel very well and eventually it will be so cloudy it won't get to it at all....peel it and place the panel wherever light can hit it well.
At the time of my review I could not find any other string of lights this long for this cheap on Amazon. And with 100 lights no less!
Solar lights are fantastic for holiday or year round because they turn themselves on and off and don't have to be near an unsightly plug. They can be strung in backyard trees year round and if you ever dine on your backyard deck, it makes it stunning to have lights in trees l(same reason restaurants do it around the bases) or, like me, around my bridge. Even around the supports for a deck roof is pretty
The strand is a nice and thick strand that should hold up well.
Thus far I have no complaints. They come on nightly and show up wonderfully.

Bright blue! Very happy! Sep 23, 2012
By Eric Mcginnis
These lights are incredibly bright. nothing you will be able to ready by but for blue Fairy lights they are amazing. They last several hour,after most sunny days they stay on until midnight. I also have the yellow ones which are not as bright but last until 4am, crazy! Some tips for you. the plastic is not strong. put the spike in the ground before attaching the solar charger. do not try to use the charger as a handle to push the spike into the ground, it will break. However this turned out to be a good thing for me. I was able to place the solar unit on my fence with Velcro and discover the units take what looks like normal AA rechargeable batteries. so then it stops lasting as long as i would like I should be able to just pop new batteries in. Of course you don't have to break it to change the batteries, the unit has three screws. I am really happy with this purchase. I have no power in my back yard and these light really make me happy every night.

Love the fairy lights Mar 15, 2012
I have these strung around some vines and trellises in my backyard. The look of them at night is awesome. The only problem is they do need a lot of direct sun exposure during the day and my vines only get 3-4 hours. Therefore, the lights don't stay on very long. I plan to get more and place them in another area of my yard that gets a lot more sun. They are very pretty and help to make my yard unique.

Terrific product Nov 26, 2011
These lights work great. Even indirect sunlight is enough to charge them during the day. Then they light automatically at dusk. No electrical outlet needed! At this price, you can't go wrong.

Worked GREAT! Sep 06, 2012
These BLUE light worked great! Loved the blue color. It did state that it was for outdoor use, but I wouldn't recommend for outdoor use. I used the lights on the outskirts of a pontoon boat and when wrapped around the boat frame the wire casing did not hold up and the wire frayed apart and stopped working where the fray was.
