  • Need a good solar powered wall lamp for front porch.

    I need to put a front porch light on my rental house. The wiring job is gonna be very costly so I thought I might try a solar powered light instead. I have found multiple wall lamps out there for sale. The prices range from $30-$300 but I am finding it difficult to find any reviews on whats the best.

    This is one I am looking at.

    caveats from their site:
    The integral solar panels must be exposed to direct sunlight and not subjected to constant shade.

    This light fixture requires several hours of full sunshine daily to enable it to get a full charge in optimum conditions and in an optimum geographic location.

    Time length of night time illumination is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc.

    Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the fixture as being defective or define the fixture as being advertised incorrectly.[/I]
