Mosaic Style Solar Powered LED Lights with Ground Stakes, by Sogrand

We have a copycat neighbor, she is always asking where we bought, or how we made it since she knows we are big at do-it-yourself projects. It only took a couple of hours after I placed these mosaic solar light stakes outside the house for her to come around asking how did we made them. She was convinced that we make these, or that we had a friend make them for us. These solar lights are absolutely stunning, and look like the real deal. The pack of three has different colors: blue, purple, and yellow. We have a friend who does mosaic work, and these lights look like something we would find at her studio.

These lamps require rechargeable batteries which are already installed; An orange paper tab needs to be removed in order for the lamps to begin charging, and working at night. It auto turns on at sunset, and turns off at sunrise. According to how much exposure to light it had is how many hours of light it will produce. The lights begin to dim a bit as the charge is lost, but have only seen it happened one night after a cloudy and stormy day but fully charged it can produce between eight to ten hours of light. The lampshades of these are made out of plastic, and decorated with different shapes of mosaic tiles which have different tones and shades that go nicely together. We have been debating on where to place the stakes as we do not want it to get damage when the lawn-care people are around. The set also comes with plastic ground steaks. We did noticed that as the solar panels (which are located on the top of the lamps) had more exposure to the sun, the LED lights looked brighter at night. The lamps are also weatherproof which we were able to test as we had several days of storms.

Overall, we feel these lights purpose is more of a decorative one. Anyone expecting a very bright path or area should keep looking as the light emitted is more beautiful than useful; With this set is all about the aesthetics of it. We love the blue, and the purple lights; In fact, we wish we could only buy those colors in a bigger set. The yellow one looks classic, and somewhat formal which is not really our style but it is gorgeous nonetheless. It definitely brings a nice touch to the area, in our case the front lawn.
