Good Lights, but a few flaws
I installed about 30 of these on my deck just over two years ago. So far, only four have completely failed - which is pretty good for an outdoor solar light. They are not exactly water tight, so some rust is starting to form. Moreover, they tend to fill up with moisture and then mold (algae) and are a pain to clean (must be removed and disassembled). The powder white coating turns to powder after the first year (and ends up on your clothing if you rub against one. The powder coating also tends to mildew. I just spent several hours cleaning and clear-coating mine. They look nice again.
