These are very similar to the cheaper pathway lights that you will buy from places like Walmart, Target, or Sams Club under a different brand. I bought some of those last year from Walmart and they were decent, but after a year the plastic became brittle and many quit working (out of 12 I bought only 2 still work). so here I will be comparing these Sogrand to my previous lights I purchased from walmart.
So right off the bat the Sogrand ones are much cheaper. They come very well packaged and the build quality is similar to the ones I bought from walmart. The main difference I've noticed right out of the package is the Sogrand ones have an on off switch and it looks like at least according to the instructions that you can replace the batteries. Not sure if I would waste my time doing that in these since they are already so cheap, but its a nice addition. Right away one of my Sogrand lights stopped working, I contacted the seller and they contacted me the same day and sent a replacement out the next day no questions asked. So after having these for about a week, I can see that these are not as bight as the old ones and the light is very cool white, almost blue, where the other ones I had were nearly perfect white. Even so I am pleased with the purchase. I had to deduct a star because one failed within a day, but knowing how fast Sogrand was to ship me out a replacement, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again. I hope these stand up to the elements better than the ones I purchased from walmart. I will update next year about this time to let all of you know what I find.
Up to this point 4 out of the 12 have failed. I ended up biting the bullet and getting a low voltage system that plugs into the wall. I gave the remaining 8 to my dad and he is still using those. You get what you pay for with these types of things.

Idential Lights sold under other names, CHEAP, STAY AWAY.
BUYER BEWARE. If you search for solar pathway lights, there are several other "stores" that are selling the exact same thing under a different name. This is a flimsy product that is made in china. I have compared the pictures from this.... https://www.amazon.com/GIGALUMI-Outdoor-Landscape-Stainless-Steel-12/dp/B01K1SETD4/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071VCG363?psc=1, and there is one other that are the same exact thing. I have a top that broke off already one or two stakes already bent. The amount of light and the look is fine, but not as bright as the picture will show, for that I'm deducting one star from a two star review. If your thinking your getting 12 good lights at 20 bucks or so, like I did, please learn from my mistake and STAY AWAY

Great Solar lights.
These solar stakes are easy to assemble. Love how sturdy and well made they are. Using them to line the driveway. They look fantastic and give off a perfect amount of light. I am very happy with this purchase. I have bought 4 products made by Sogrand and love each and every one of them. High quality purchase at a great price. Will definitely purchase from this company again.

Solar lights, but not very bright, and stake is easily broken
It's one of those, you get what you pay for things. They do work, and when there's at least some sun, there's not an issue with battery life. The silver color on the top does slip off. The spikes are sent inside the pole, but break easily. Recommend using something else to start the hole when installing, and be careful not to hit with mower, dog, etc. Not a great deal of light, but was able to put one by each tree and the edge of the shed so the dog didn't run into them...

pretty pattern, not much light, last all night
Ok value for the quality but probably would not buy again. Tubes are very thin and I've lost almost 4 of them to pretty basic accidents (extension cord pulling against it, garden hose trauma, accidentally bumping with weed whacker). Kind of sad the quality is so poor as the light they give off is subtle and a nice pattern. Will see how long the survivors will last. Kind of stuck with them until i lose a few more as it would look pretty ghetto having two different sets. I'm eyeing up a set from costco that costs the same (although only 8 included) but after handling it, much higher quality tube and light.

Attractive but useless lights
Each light is in two pieces: a plastic bulb with silver top that has a solar panel on top, with a plastic stake that must be attached. The first two stakes I put into the lawn snapped in two. None of the lights have ever worked. They were placed alongside a back patio that receives bright sunlight all day. At first, I thought maybe it was the gloomy weather Seattle endured this year, but we've had a wonderful, long stretch of sunny days and still no glow from these lights. I believe Dollar Tree sells some that actually work at half the price per light. These were purchased to be a decorative yet functional patio accent. The lights I received are attractive but useless and break easily. It was a disappointing purchase.

Not a quality product.
Will not buy from this merchant in the future. Some of the product was missing but it took too long to obtain the part missing. The lights are cheap. It's true, you get what you pay for. Will gladly spend more for a better product. I just won't purchase from Sogrand.

Disappointed in product
Very disappointed in this product for the price. Two of the twelve did not even light after left in sun for 24 hours to charge, two stopped on second day and two stopped on third day. I rarely write a bad review, but totally upset.

the pegs that go in the ground are super cheap plastic
one of them came bent and I had to fix with a vise grip. the pegs that go in the ground are super cheap plastic. They could have made them so much stronger with a more durable plastic or even metal. they work though, so I'm not too worried about it now. you get 12 of them so there are plenty to work with and the price is reasonable.

Wonderful way to light up the darkness
What a great set of 12 solar powered lights. Wonderful way to light up a driveway path that is too dark to see in. You can seperate with ease across your garden, as they require no installation except sticking in the ground. I am using them to illuminate my sculpted garden. Stainless silver in color and light is pretty bright at night. The solar power last from dark till about 5 am when the hubby leaves for work.
