Each fixture will have 2 solar panels, a rechargeable battery and single light.  The fixtures are 5 3/4″ wide, 4″ high and 1″ deep.  They have a durable aluminum case with a bronze finish that is weatherproof. The lights will put out about 15 lumens of light. The lights will last for 6 to 8 hours after dark on a full charge.

 How does it work

 

Each solar light is powered by a Amorphous solar panel.  This is a ultra thin panel that is used on calculators.  This type of Solar Panel will collect energy even on cloudy days. Each set of panels charges a rechargeable battery.  

A photo cell turns on these lights at dusk. A 1.2 volt 600 mAh Rechargeable battery will come in each light fixture.  They will give about 6 to 8 hours of light on a full charge.

Pros

Cons

 

Mounting hardware not included-Need to get screws or nails to mount, it will depend on the surface what kinds of mounting hardware that is needed.

Factory batteries do not last very long and are hard to replace

Need to have one for each step-light will not be enough to light more than one step

solar step light set of fourConclusion

 

When looking for solar step lights this set of four bronze lights will illuminate four steps without any additional work. After installation just monitor the lights to make sure that the batteries are still keeping a charge.  The batteries that come with the sets are weak.  If you have more than four steps or your steps are wide you may want to purchase more than one set and put a light on each side.

If this fixture had two mounting notches on the back it would be more stable.  Light out put will only cover the step it is mounted on.
