Solar Powered Lights
Advantages: Saves energy in the long run.
Disadvantages: Pretty expensive.
After much sweat and tears I finally managed to build a shed at the bottom of my garden. However I tend to stay in there until late at night working and when I need to come back in the house it is too dark to see and I always end up kicking something. Then I saw some solar powered lights available for £29.99 from Amazon and decided to test them out.
I had my doubts about solar lighting because I thought that lights may be dim, the price would be expensive and a lot of greenhouse gases may be released in order to make them.
It is true that the good quality solar powered lights are expensive and even though the ones I bought are pretty bright they don't hold enough charge to last more than 7 hours. But I manage to overlook this because they are hassle free as they do not require plug sockets and the bulb rarely needs changing. Plus I no longer run the risk of walking into the pond in the middle of the night!
So in conclusion although I wish they could hold a charge for longer they are very useful and have a great potential.
Summary: Very useful for gardens.
