Sunforce Solar Lamp Post with Motion Sensor - 6Ft.H, 23 LEDs
Good light, cheap aspects
Overall I got a pair of light posts with excellent sensors and good quality light that remain lit all or most of the night. The weak points are:
The on-off switch: cheaply made - one of my lights sometimes doesn't come on at dusk, I have to push the switch, not enough to 'click' it, but move it around so maybe the contact surface is cleaned. Need to do that especially in wet or foggy weather.
The mounting base: Those screw cases are poorly made. You can't use them for mounting into the earth even if it is packed or unpaved driveway material. In addition the base of one of the lamps broke, so now I only have 2 places out of the three to mount the light. I have rocks at the base to support the thing.

solar lamp post
This lamp post is cheaply made but not bad for the price. It also isnt sealled up all that great, bugs are finding there way in some where. I plan to clear silicone up any voids to solve that problem. I installed the post next to my bridge. It acts as a location marker, until the motion sensor is tripped. Then you have 12 seconds of fairly bright light. It works great . It looks fancy from 10 feet away. My neighbors all seem to like it. It is solar powered so expect it to be dimmer than your house lights. It is worth the money .

An acceptable solar lamp post
If you need to put light in a field or along a sidewalk or anywhere that you can easily get hard wires to, the Sunforce lamp is a suitable alternative. Not terribly bright, not terribly effective, but a relatively low cost way to put light in a dark area. I use 2 of these as outside markers for my fence gate. They do what they need to do for my needs.

average product, would be ok at lower price
I was very pleased at first with this item, but the black finish is terrible had to repaint after only 1 year. Also the globe is not sealed so every critter gets in to make a home so you have to take it apart and clean it. I am an owner for several years so still works but the light that is always on somtime flickers verry anoying.

Solar lamp post
Received the product well packaged. It appears to be cast aluminum. The post had a dent in it but not severe enough to hassle with a return. Set the lamp up in partial shade next to my entry sidewalk and placed castle rock around the base to hold it temporarily until I could build a wooden base I could use to move it around with. It's been over a year now and its still there and still working great. I can now see to get from my car to the door without having to leave a porch light on and waste extra electricity. I will not be caught out late and have to carry a flashlight and hope the batteries will work when needed. I love this lamp. It does what it says it will do and I can also walk the dog at night and not worry about opening the door and stepping on a snake. I can see! I have not had to change the batteries at all and only had to wipe the solar top once. It works when it's dirty and in partial shade. I love this lamp and will buy another for my barn. It has now paid for itself.

Quit after 9 months
This lamp worked fine for about 9 months. Then it began to flicker and finally quit. Northern tools did replce it.

This is a nice light for an entry door. The night light lasts all night even in the winter with low sunlight. The motion sensor has a narrow pattern and I would like it better if you could adjust the time it stays on.

Solar Vintage Lamp
After some shipping errors, I finally received my lamp. Though the box was quite battered, everything (except the directions) seemed to still be there. Setup is fairly obvious and straight-forward. It takes only minutes. I elected to pour a concrete base 8" wide and 18" deep. I simply set the base of the lamp, with the bolts attached to the base, into the top of the wet cement. It cured in an hour at which time I secured the rest of the lamp. A simple easy procedure which has proven to be very effective. The lamp is extremely stable and very nice looking. It has been up for 3 months now and has survived 60+ mph winds. It provides good light, is well made, and works flawlessly. We are very pleased.
