    I bought around 10 of them, three for each room for emergency outages because in September is common to have many days with lights off. So, since I bought them the lights never have gone off!!!!!!! It is really frustrating I have never used them LOL and when I ruined them to make a bigger solar lamp of 3 LEDs the lights went off!!!!!!!! and I had no lights just one LOL!!!! anyway now
    I have a 50w solar panel and I am saving to buy 3 more to charge some batteries. I hope you laugh about my story I laughed a lot when I had nothing for the outage. Greetings from Mexico 🙂

  2. I've collected about 50 of these solar lights that people were throwing out. I'm making a small solar panel from them to charge up a deep cycle battery that I got for free as well.

  3. Good video and your a smart man. I actually have two of these that i cut the tube down to 4 inches , that you would use to plant in the ground. So i have a light and 4 inch tube then attach another light to the end that would go in the ground. so it looks like a dog bone. So double the light and i take this camping, so i have a great light for hanging close to my hammock for a night light that will last all night when deep in the bush.

    Good point about conserving other lighting resources. Also, consider safety, as well. Better to leave one of these in the bathroom than to leave or carry a light source that uses combustion. Also good to use in children's rooms when they are used to having a the comfort of a night light.  

    Tip: For indoor use, those with plain glass globes work better than the ones with patterned glass. The pattern throws shadows of light & dark. Not too bad for general lighting. No so good when trying to read directions, for example. On COLD days, try recharging in a sunny window. May have to move from an east facing window to south facing, then to west facing, as the daylight hours progress. (Window design & glazing components may affect charging capability. Test before you have to rely on this.)

    Tip: Buy x number of these to match rechargeable batteries used in other devices. You have an alternative way to recharge those batteries, when the grid fails. 

    Merry Christmas.

    These work great, we have several that sit on mason jars with foil in the bottom. Sure come in handy during power outages.

    Great idea! Kudos! Better safe than sorry! Blessings!

  7. What a great idea! Another great resource at hand!

  8. Found these little guys for a buck at Dollar Tree, of all places!  I expect to have to replace the rechargeable battery soon, but still….theyre nice to have on hand for a buck apiece!
