Grattan Solar Lights
Advantages: Look modern, easy to install
Disadvantages: Dont really give off any light
I saw these in the catalogue and thought they looked great so I bought myself a set of 6 to dot around my garden. I put them in during the day and then waited with anticipation till dark to see them light up in all their glory. Unfortunately after dark I barely got a glimmer out of them, I thought maybe they needed more time to soak up the sunlight so decided to see if they were any better the night after. This time you could definately see a small light coming from them but nothing like what was shown in the picture in the catalogue. Overall I was very disappointed with them. The design of the lights looks lovely during the day in the garden. They're quite modern looking and are easy to fit by just pushing them into soil or gravel to hold them in place, they also appear to glow more during the day than at night due to the sun reflecting off the glass. I have left them in the garden as they are a nice design feature I think but do not expect them to give off any useful form of light at night. I wouldnt recommend to a friend as I would suggest they try another type of solar light that would hopefully work better than these!
Summary: Look nice but dont work as expected
