Review Content Just looks like a magic light in the pond at night Floating in fish pond Beautiful, but NOT watertight I purchased one to replace one exactly like it that had been given to me as a gift by my son. His purchase was also made from Sharper Image. This review is about the one given as a gift, as it failed because of placing it in water. It is supposed to be able to float in a pool or water bowl. I carefully followed all directions and made sure the bottom was properly sealed, but apparently the seal leaked and ruined the light. I felt terrible that my son had spent so much money and given such thought to what to give me, that I just replaced it. The replacement one will not be going into water! The base is very difficult to screw back on after it has been taken off, and you cant access the controls without removing the base. For one solar light, this is very expensive. It is as described though (other than being in water) and looks really lovely at night. Awesome! Bought this for myself and loved it so much purchased 3 more to give as gifts. I put mine in a hanging planter that gets at least a half day of full sunlight. REALLY COOL PRODUCT I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE, LOVED IT SO MUCH, I HAD TO BUY ANOTHER FOR A DIFFERENT SPOT. FRIENDS HAVE LIKED IT SO MUCH THEY HAVE ORDERED THEM. I LOVE ODD LIGHTS IN MY GARDENS, AND THIS IS PERFECT Works Great! Works great for my parents pond and in their garden. Very bright. Solar powered. Globe We have on our deck. And We ordered one for our daughter . She loves it to. Very lovely We bought these for our backyard as a splash of color around our pool. We had had some LED spheres before but they died. These are better in that they are solar and you do not have to charge them every other day like we did the LED spheres. They soak up the sun and shine all night and are quite lovely sitting by our lounge chairs by the pool. I just wish there was an option for a larger version of the same thing as they are not so big - and that is the only reason they did not get 5 stars. Great gift Very nice gift! Beautiful colors that can be fixed to stay on your favorite one !! Extremely cool Love garden decorations, and this fits in so perfectly. Had a recent party and all of our friends loved this light. The colors are great, its a perfect size. Loved it so much I ordered a second one for the other side of our house. Love this product! Have now bought two. I put it in my flower garden on a gazing ball stand or use the stake to put it on the ground among the flowers. Awesome colors Excellent product, a little on the expensive side. Make sure you read the directions and power it up in the sun for a couple days before turning it on. Slightly overpriced for the quality I use it in the garden very bright light. Very pretty This is not a completely round ball. There is a cylinder base attached. A Light Show Every Night We use the light globe on our balcony. We see it every night. Having it "know" when to switch on and off is very handy. Great Gift I purchased this for my Dads Fathers Day gift. He seems to like it quite well, he says it lights up his garden nicely. Beautiful Soft Light Beautiful outdoor light! Liked it so much I plan to buy a second one. I would not buy this product again. I left the globes floating in pool and they looked good but leaked and shorted out with in a week. We really enjoy the globe. We use it on the patio for the calming effect. I like the 3 color choice option. LOVE these, but do NOT use in the pool! These are GREAT. Had a huge party outside and everyone raved about how beautiful they looked changing colors all around our patio by the pool. After having them around for a while and really enjoying them, I decided to try one in the pool. DO NOT DO THAT. While it says you can float them in the pool, you can NOT. I followed the directions to a T and yet within 36 hours of floating over just one night, the next afternoon, ruined. Full of brown water and dead. Was not the product I had envisioned I was expecting glass. Not great to look at in the garden but has great light. Easy to Set Up i placed these on my deck around the pool, look awesome at night. Nice light poor design We purchased 2 because of mixed reviews regarding quality of light. The reviews were accurate. Both lights were "charged" with Arizona sunlight prior to use. One provided 8 hours of beautiful functional light. The other 3 hours of tea light candle flicker. The on/off switch is located inside the base. This makes sense if you intend to float them in water. We purchased them for outdoor land lighting. One must unscrew the lamp from the base to turn them on or off. We returned both. interesting product bright display, attractive at night, not so attractive during the day Luv Luv this globe I use this product for a light at night by our shed. It is wonderful for that purpose and just delights me to look out back and see it lit up. Its a great product. I got it as a gift for my husband and he loved it! I have bought this product again and again Put them in my flower garden for a wonderful light show at night..wonderful light and best mail order service I have ever used. Solar Globe Looks nice at night as it cycles though the various colors 2nd One is Way Better Well after a quick return of the last ball (the sottering was broken) and replacement - I really like this ball. The color change is so subtle and quite beautiful that its a great accent to my back porch. It doesnt give off a lot of light so dont think of it more than just a pretty accent. Lights Up My Life Turned my boring birdbath in my boring garden into a fun feature that I watch each night. Attractive - Battery Replacement issue Attractive product with optional plain or colored lighting. Purchased to be used for night light on our porch in lieu of electrical lights. Charged within the two days. Since its new, we dont yet know the longevity of the batteries included. Hopefully, these will last a long time. To replace the batteries, the base would need to be removed and there are two teeny tiny Phillips screws holding it on. (These are not mentioned in the instructions.) Highly recommend that Sharper Image include an equally small Phillips head screwdriver. Otherwise, we will probably take this to a jeweler when the time comes to replace the batteries. Just OK I thought this would be a bit larger, but it does work, and the colors are bright and change good. I would recommend this to a friend, but let them know how small it is. N/A This was a gift, and was a big hit. I keep buying more I put them outside in the backyard so at night they light up. The backyard looks great. Creative and beautiful lighting solution Cant wait to add these lights as a creative touch to our dock up at the lake! Amazing Colorful Globe! I love how bright the colors are and it is lasting many hours! Highly recommended it. I will be buying a few more for sure. solar globe globe is white and not particularly attractive during the day. But is very attractive at night and makes an excellent accent piece. Ad Advertised This light looks as if it was taken from in front of a 1940s police station. Its a very simple, very ordinary round white globe... in the daytime. But at night? It has a very even, VERY GRADUALLY changing series of vibrant colors it cycles through. Or... you can leave it on white light... or you can pick one color for it to stick to. One tiny switch inside the base does all that. Merchants almost always ask for customers to review a product like this within a few days of purchase, so its impossible to tell whether the batter lasts a long time (etc.) or not. Thats why it gets 4 stars and not 5. If it proves to be durable in the long run, Id likely bump it up to 5. I bought one to begin with, just to see if it lives up to its billing. So far, the answers an unqualified "YES". Its definitely an attention-getter. Im putting two of them on a pole in my garden at staggered heights... ought to be quite a show!
