Product Review – 50 LED Solar Rope Lights Blue


#SolarRopeLightsBlue – Product Review – 50 LED Solar Rope Lights Blue

I’ve got quite a collection going of these solar lights now, in all sorts of fancy shapes and colors. This is a long tube of blue lights. It is really bright, and makes for quite the display. If you are feeling creative you can bend these into different shapes.

They are on a decent cord, enough to make a display. And the best thing about them is that you don’t need to worry about stretching to a power socket. Just put them wherever you want them, and enjoy! I really love that about solar lights. No need to negotiate space or waste cord stretching them to a socket.

The solar collector is … OK. Living in Texas, it is always a drawback of these lights that they work the least when you want them the most. In the Autumn/Winter months, the solar collector gathers enough power to give off a dim light for an hour or so in the dusk. There were a few days in August when we didn’t even get enough light for these to turn on at all. That’s just the way it works for solar lights though, and is part of the tradeoff.

Also, like all of the solar lights I have received, these are wonderful while they work, but have a limited lifespan. They are made to be waterproof and to be used as outdoors lights, but I have found it is a toss-up as to whether or not they will survive a serious rainstorm or snow. It seems like every winter I have a few casualties. You are best off treating these as somewhat fragile, to get a longer life out of them!
