💡 The details

For shoppers eager to breathe new life into their outdoor space this season, Amazon reviewers recommend checking out these waterproof solar string lights.

The Brightown 60 LED Solar Crystal Globe String Lights are powered by solar energy and feature a water-resistant rating of IP65.

These energy-saving lights measure 35.6 feet long with 60 bright LED bulbs and have a colour temperature of 2700K warm white.

As no outlet is required for these solar-powered string bulbs, users can get creative with their placement and function.

The lights can run between eight and 10 hours at a time, depending on their charge, and come with eight lighting modes, including twinkle, slow fade and waves.


💬 What people are saying

The "Amazon's Choice" pick for outdoor solar string lights has racked up more than 13,400 reviews and an average rating of 4.2 stars.

According to one reviewer, the lights offer the "perfect ambiance" to your outdoor space as they're "not too big or [too] bright."

One reviewer said the "lights are great," noting they have a "soft yellow appearance" and "last through most of the night" — even if it's cloudy or the panel doesn't have direct sun exposure.

They "charge up," even in "overcast conditions," said another shopper, who added that they keep their charge for hours on end, "literally from the minute it gets dark" to when "the sun comes up."

Despite thousands of five-star reviews, some shoppers complain that when the charge runs out, the lights automatically reset to "rave mode" rather than a steady, non-blinking setting.

If the battery dies, it resets to the first lighting setting, which one reviewer calls "annoying."

The "way to avoid this," they continue, is by ensuring the solar panel gets "8-10 hours of direct sunlight."


💭 The verdict

According to Amazon reviewers, these affordable solar-powered string lights provide the "perfect ambiance" to any outdoor space. They'll be great for backyard hangouts in the spring and summer. However, some shoppers note the lights often reset back to their factory setting, which can be "annoying," which is something to keep in mind.
