Good lights, bright, and real glass
I've bought three sets of these over the past few months. I've had several sets of bad solar lights in the past, so I didn't have much hope -- but thought since they were Duracell, I'd give them a try. The first set of four did ok, so I went back for another set six weeks later -- and that box had two that didn't work. Fortunately, I read this review page before I returned them, and went back and got batteries. (Solar lights with replaceable batteries?! Who knew?) That fixed the problem, and then I bought the third set. So I had to spend an extra few dollars on batteries right away, which is certainly not ideal. But for the price, these are much better than most. They're made with real glass, not cheap plastic, and the light color is a brilliant blue-white that looks really sharp in my landscaping. (I hate those ugly yellow-orange lights.) They've done fine in our heavy summer rains. And I actually love that the batteries are replaceable, so you don't have to throw the lights away when they stop recharging.
BUY replacement batteries for every single unit.
I am suffering the same fate as each of the other posters as far as the failed batteries in the unit. I also have found two of the 12 lights I purchased (3 sets of 4) to have faulty connections on the LEDs. I truly love the lights that work, but it is not acceptable that I have paid $120 dollars for 12 lights and only have 10 which work, particularly after only owning them for a week. I would only recommend these be purchased if you are aware of the need to buy batteries with the original purchase, and be aware of the possibility of a 16% failure rate out of the box. Duracell, you have a stellar reputation, and these lights are not doing you any justice. Solve the problem by offering easy replacement of faulty LED caps and send replacement batteries to the stores which they can provide to those of us who trust your brand name.
Lights are great, the batteries-not so much.
These are heavy duty solar lights, so it's unfortunate the Duracell brand solar rechargeable batteries that come in the box are useless & die within a day or two. Oddly enough you cannot find replacement Duracell solar batteries anywhere on Walmart's website, on the Duracell website, or anywhere else on the Internet. If you pick these lights up in the garden section of the store, do yourself a favor and pick up an extra pack of replacement batteries that are located in the same aisle, otherwise you'll be making a trip back to Walmart within a few days to get them.
I just bought 2 sets of these lights. To me the 7LM was the selling point. After the first night 2 of these lights stopped working. After trial and error I figured out the batteries were no good. I called and emailed Duracell Customer Support but no one has replied back to me. Now a third light has stopped working. I've owned the lights for 3 days and 3 lights have stopped working. I 'd returned them if I had keep the box. I would have thought with the name Duracell the batteries would be better. I've looked for replacement batteries but no one seems to sell them. I wouldn't recommend these lights unless Duracell can fix the battery problem.
great looking lights...but
First of all for the lights that work, I couldn't be happier with and I would rate them a 5 star. I have 16 of these lights, bought the first four while living in Texas 2 years ago, and to this day the only thing I have had to do is to replace the batteries and repaint the faded plastic light head, now they look and perform like new ones. The second four I bought after moving to Virginia a year ago, I just replaced the batteries in two of them and now I think I have a faulty switch in one and a loose LED connection on another one. I am going to look in to fixing them myself. The last batch of eight lights I bought about 2 months ago and they are all doing fine so far. I know this review was lengthy but maybe it will help someone else decide on these lights. If I can't fix the issues on the ones not working, I intend to contact the manufacturer for parts or replacement.
