'Modern Living' Solar Security Motion Sensor Light $19 @ Target (1/2 Price)

70

Part of the Big 1/2 Price Sale, there is 50% on outdoor lighting. I felt this deserved a post as someone had put up one for the Aldi solar sensor light going on sale tomorrow (28/6) and I think this is a better deal IMHO…

The Target one gets my pick because:
It's a solar-powered (amorphous panel, 2xAA) motion sensor light, as per Aldi's, but…
2 individual directional lights (instead of the single oval-shaped panel from Aldi) give this more flexibility
That difference is enough for me to be happy paying $19 (instead of $16.99 at Aldi).

Probably down to personal opinion to some extent, but chances are some people will find value in this.

These things are great for rentals where a wired unit might not be an option, or just for easy placement somewhere you need light when you walk in…

I bought 2,.. plenty left at Doncaster VIC

    I bought 2 of these before, they are really crap. Both had issues with charging/electronics, where the light would only turn on for 2 seconds and then off completely. The lights are old style LED's and not bright at all. I ended up paying 60'ish from a dealsdirect.com.au sale which used CREE bulbs (or at least brighter LED's I think), and they are great.

    How bright are they?
    How long do the batteries last at night?

    I bought two of these around a year ago, for above my front door and back door. One has stopped working altogether, and the other sometimes doesn't work and sometimes only stays on for a moment.

    As above - These don't last long and are 'old style' LEDs (not much width or depth in light output).
    Better off finding a CREE LED one if they come back in stock from DD.

    $30 in Masters, so good bargain.

      I have the set from masters. It has been 4 months. It is quite bright. From about 20 meters, it is as bright as the new street light. They come with 12 month warranty too just in case.

    Just my 2 cents worth - if you want quality battery powered (not solar) LEDs for indoor or outdoor have a look at the range from Mr Beams - not cheap but great quality and long battery life

    Can you manually turn these on and off?

      You can, but you won't need to bother. I too had the misfortune of buying some of these and they have all shat themselves. I'd suggest keeping you're cash in your pocket.

    I got a set of these.. not worth $19.

    Ummm… but they won't work IN anywhere because they need to be mounted OUTSIDE (in the sun) so that they will recharge.

    I have 2 of these, neither work anymore. One of them was a replacement for a DOA as well. They were great whilst they did work, but don't expect them to last.

    The previous batch From Target that uses 6V SLA battery was better and brighter, lasted 2.5 years.

    This unit is not as bright but good enough to give about 10-15 meters of light trail when walking towards three door. Having AA as the power is a plus if you have plenty of eneloop to spare.
