The lights barely come on at night if at all
not what i expected
These are a nice string of lights that emits a warm glow. They are made of the same strong tyvek material that I love in the other seemingly indestructible solar lights from the same company. I have 3 of the pearl globes, 1 ink globe and the pearl teardrop. I've mistakenly left all of them out during rainstorms and heavy snow, but they are as fantastic as the day I received them. I have 2 problems with this string of lanterns-- First, it doesn't seem to hold a charge for as long as the other (Allsop) lights, and second, they give off less light than I expected. To be fair, when I reread the description, I realized that it doesn't say the light would be sufficient for us to have a drink or bite outside like I'd expected. It definitely is just an ambient glow. However, judging by my past experience with this particular company, I'm sure I'll enjoy these for many years.
