"honestly I'm fed up with throwing away cheap quality solar lights (although not always cheap to buy). Obviously not all solar lights have the same construction even though most are stainless steel and look good in the packaging. These lights from the FLC (Fine Lighting Co) are a cut above the rest.. Open the box and you can see the units are fully tested before final packaging. the globes are properly sealed so they don't get dirty internally. the stems fit properly and are made to last. These have been used during the last few weeks they have stayed on throughout the evening. Brilliant!. The last FLC lights I bought lasted 4 years and I'm sure these will be just as good."
