  2. There is a battery in the top sou you do need a battery, eventually.

  3. Actually, this helped me a lot. I was looking for cheap solar lights with timers to set into some hanging lanterns that are meant for candles that I have. By making a holder in a piece of board like you did, I can just use the top of them. I didn’t know the stem came off as I am shopping online and have not looked at one in the store. (I don’t live by stores and rarely go) Thank you!!!

  4. The title of this video is ‘Build a solar powered light…’ All you did was buy one from Walmart and stick it in a piece of wood. Where’s the building???
    You should change the title of this video to ‘Where to buy a solar powered light’ or ‘How to drill a hole in a piece of wood’

  6. Here Walmat in season charges 3.50, but in the fall they drop to 2.00 on clearance, but I miss the clearance sale this year. I seen some Xmas holiday lights in this same style, but smaller for 2.50. I’m not getting any caz, I have enough of the others now.

  7. LOL; U beat me to sharing this idea. I hadn’t done so yet because I never got around to installing a switch on it to be able to turn it off. Another refinement would be to build a fixture that uses a reflector. Another would be to install another battery in parallel. 1 of same voltage & ampacity would 2x run time but charge time wold be 2x as well. A bat. with the same voltage & but lower ampacity could strike a better balance. As in paring up the stock AA with a AAA.

  9. @usefortouch you wouldnt. the sun charges it then you use it in the house or wherever you need light

    By CopingWithTheTimes on Jan 22, 2012

  10. Now why would I need light in the sun?

    By usefortouch on Jan 22, 2012

  11. Please don’t mention Walmart

    By magicalleela on Jan 22, 2012

  12. You said “No Battery”/ lol . Stupid. The solar pannel charges a AA battery inside the head. Some of them have AAA. But yes there is a battery.

  16. Eventually, the built in rechargeable battery will not be able to be recharged anymore, but it should be good for a season or two. We’ve got a stash of them, fiddled with them to fit just the bulb and solar panel (so minus the plastic housing, in other words( into a canning jar, so its a lil sturdier. Dollar Tree, a buck apiece. Can’t beat it for emergency lighting.

  17. An easy project for you to do is mark one of the legs to insure you use the same polarity add wire and a reflector you can leave the panel in the window and run the light to provide decent night lights. OR you could place your favorite reading chair on the south side of the room and your light would stay on almost all night. They also have lights that clip on patio umbrellas recharges 3AA batteries you can use batteries i a radio if you have the radio already if not get one?

  19. @bigt2318 To hold the light. The bottom is uneven and won’t stay up without something to hold it.
