Not only does the solar-powered set include eight lights (versus the standard four), but the added on-page coupon brings it down to the lowest price we've seen all year. Because they're solar-powered, you're also going to be saving money on your electric bill. Thank you, Mr. Sun!

Short answer? They look fantastic and you will adore them. The long answer is that they automatically charge during the day using the sun's light, and then they come alive with a soft, flickering light at night; no need to turn them on or off.

Depending on how much direct sunlight they've gotten during the day, the torches are made to provide up to eight hours of light. Meanwhile, each one sits on a plastic stake and pole that can be inserted directly into the ground without tools. Should any of the lights burn out, Kurifier offers a one-year replacement warranty.

Artfully place them around the backyard — they give off a fire-flickering look — or use them to light up the pathway to your front door. You can even try lining the pool with them for a relaxing night swim — after all, they're waterproof. And if you have any planned beach or camping excursions, they're easy to pack so you can have soft lighting on the go.

Over 6,700 Amazon shoppers have given these lights glowing five-star reviews, with one reviewer even sharing that the "little flames pack a big atmospheric punch."

👍 Pros:

"Super easy to assemble and install," wrote this five-star shopper. "Have had them out for a couple of weeks, and even in the shorter days they're holding their charge and glowing a long time. Great path markers."

"We got these lights to place around our garden to make spring/summer a little more fun," shared another pleased Amazon customer. "They are bright, festive and look really good. Lightweight and still sturdy, they seem to be holding up well. And they stay lit for a long time."

"They've been 'burning' for four years straight, through summers, falls, winters, including heavy snow storms and springs," wrote a longtime fan. "They are realistic looking. I love them." Meanwhile, another Amazon reviewer says that the lights can "stay on until 5 a.m. in the summer."

👎 Cons:

One Amazon customer notes that the lights are more decorative than not: "They don't put out a lot of light. So if you are looking for a product to light up a walkway, this is not the one. If you are looking for aesthetics only, this is perfect."

"I like the fire flickering look," agreed another. "Unfortunately, one broke just pushing it into the ground. Thin plastic material. Be gentle when placing them in the ground!"

"Gets the job done," said a third. "Not as bright as we hoped, though."

These lights are easy to install, waterproof and battery- and cord-free.
