I have hung this lantern from an arch in the garden and it's a lovely focal point in the evening.

The lantern only stays on for a few minutes. I have put a new set of batteries in and it is still the same. I also moved it’s position so it got full sun all day when possible. Still only stays alight for a few minutes. Very disappointed.

Absolutely lovely! The lantern hangs in our conservatory and in the evening the solar lights reflect off the surrounding glass panels - beautiful! I was so pleased with it that I bought one for my friend - she loves it, too!
Service immaculate, as ever.

One good one useless

I bought two of these lanterns a while ago. One has been working from day one the other never worked I should have sent it back but life got busy. The working one is a little rusty but still quite beautiful

I bought this light in white last summer. It lights up most evenings, even after a pretty dull day. It has a little surface rust, but this has not detracted from the beautiful starry light it gives out in the evenings. I love looking through the conservatory windows to see it glowing at night. May even buy another soon!

Brought this last summer.
Looks good & good idea but has never worked, regardless of its position.
Waste of money.

Provided there's been some sunshine during the day, as soon as it gets dark, the lamp lights up - as if by magic! An excellent addition to our summer garden.
