Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the money this is a pretty good product. I use it to light my chicken coop at night. It provides sufficient light to allow me to observe the chickens at night. I am not sure of the potential life since it seems somewhat flimsy. It does provide light all night without the batteries going dead even after a cloudy day.

Pros: Long light life

Cons: light weight plastic likely to break

Solar-Power Light: The MAXSA Solar Powered Shed Light converts sunlight into electricity during the day, enabling you to have light in your shed at night by simply puling on a cord. With this light, searching for tools in the dark will no longer be a problem. You can also help save the environment be conserving energy with this Solar Power Shed Light. The Solar Powered Shed Light comes complete with an indoor LED light and outdoor solar panel with a 14' power cord.

LED Lights: The MAXSA Solar Powered Shed Light features five LED lights that will last up to 30,000 hours and should never need replacement.

Rechargeable Battery: The Solar Power Shed Light can light for up to 5 hours when the battery is full charged. The 3 sealed rechargeable Ni-MH batteries included with the product should last for many years before they need to be replaced.

Note: During the initial charge period, leave the light off while the solar panel charges in direct sunlight for 3 days.

Mounting Options:

  • Shed Light: The light must be installed inside the shed or in place protected from rain or snow. Use the shed light's rear-panel keyhole slots and the included screws, to mount the light to your wall or ceiling. The shed light and solar panel connect to one another via the solar panel's attached 13' power cord.
  • Solar Panel: Mount the panel facing South, which will maximize the direct sunlight exposure during the day. For optimum sun exposure and longer light output, place the solar panel where it will receive 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Mount the solar panel with the enclosed screws to a solid wood or metal surface. The solar panel is fully adjustable in all directions, simply and gently rotate to the desired locking position. Placing the panel in a shaded location will no allow the batteries to charge fully, reducing the number of hours the light will operate per evening.
