Sunforce Solar Motion Light - 60 LED, Model# 82156
Just got my 2nd one
I put my first one of these on the end of my house where there was no lighting or easily accessible wiring. I was so pleased with the performance, that I purchased a second one to replace a competitor's product on the back of my house, when theirs failed all too soon.

A great lighting product
I needed a light on the side of my house next to a woodlot where I had no light previously...This light really does the trick...Nice sized light and a pretty big solar panel as well...easily mounts practically anywhere you can drive a screw (included) and has several settings for sensitivity, running time, etc....the sensor eye can even be moved around so it can see in areas where the light is not aimed...I'm getting another soon...

Lot of light
I have had several of these and they are really bright compared to other lights I have used. I live on about 20 acres and it is too much to run cable to all areas so I have used these to get light to remote areas. I had one that came on in the daytime no matter what the setting. Northern was good about the replacement but I made the mistake of waiting too long to install it and the total warranty ran out. I still felt that they were fair and responsive in dealing with the problem. For the price this light is really good.

I tried more expensive solar spotlights and was never satisfied, so I was skeptical about the performance of the SUNFORCE because of its low price. I mounted the light on a shed that I do not have power to, and it works great. After tweaking the controls over a few nights I have the light working flawlessly. The manufacturer was also pleasant to deal with. I broke the solar panel mount, and they are sending me out a replacement free of charge. Great product. I plan on buying a few more of them to light up other areas on my property

sunforce solar light 60 led
i mounted the sunforce motion 60 led light to the side of the house and it works perfectly. it gives me the right amount of light that i am satisfy with. also somehow the wire came loose from the light and my son with the lawn mower cut the wire. i thank the company sunforce for sending me out of courtesy a new solar panel. i also thank northern tool for dealing with honest and reputable companies.

I ordered the product after reading all the reviews and it arrived promptly. My current installation (not pretty the way my wife would like it) has the unit so that it will light part of my driveway as well as the entrance to the house. At night the direction of the motion sensor and the sensitivity is set so the light will come on when pulling in the driveway or walking out the front door, but not when a car is driving down the road. In the 2 months I've owned it, this unit has met all my expectations. The light is bright enough to provide adequate light for the driveway (my wife's desire) and triggers when I desire it to. I have not yet seen any LEDs burn out. I plan to purchase a second unit to place at the end of my driveway shining toward the house to provide additional lighting. For me, the ability to place this where I want to without running wires is a definite bonus. I do have the current unit in a location where it gets 4-5 hours of direct sunlight right now. I'll be monitoring it during the coming winter to see how it holds up.

Solar garage light
My wife wanted a motion activated light just inside the garage that would turn on when she stepped through the door. I didn't have access to any power, but there is a window not to far away that I was able to run the solar panel quite a distance away from the light.
Easy to install, works great and the adjustable time the light stays on is great to have enough light to get to the garbage cans or the workbench and back inside before the light turns off.

The product is great, living off the grid, this is a great solution to motion at night.
Put it high enough that transients don't dismantle when you are away from the ranch.
Being a woman, I found it easy to install, and the security was great.
Buying two more.

Motion Detector solar light
I purchased this light last Spring ('12) and didn't get around to installing it until late summer. Installation was straight forward and easy. After letting the light charge outside for a day and a half I turned the toggle switch to "auto" and the light came on in full sunlight! No matter how I turned the adjustment settings the light remained on. I called the help number listed in the instruction manual and was told that the light was defective and should be returned to the manufacturer. I had to find the invoice from Northern to get the sales info and then I called the manufacturer back only to get voice mail. I left what pertinent info I had off of the invoice (as I had been instructed to do) and waited for either a box in the mail or a call back . After two weeks I had heard nothing so I called back again and left another voice mail. It's now been over a week and I still have seen and heard nothing. Pretty lousy service! Now I'll see if any body at Northern reads this and gets back to me...

Better than expected
We had a skunk problem in our small apple orchard and this light has been very effective in scaring the little buggers off. It has just the right sensitivity to come on when they move near it, and gives off plenty of light (at least with solar charges through September) to be effective.
