Pine Top 511-0007 Solar Fence Post Light Review

This Pine Top fence-post cap accent light makes an extraordinary design choice for any driveway, deck, pool area, or other location in the garden. It offers energy-efficient light illumination because it doesn’t need conventional electricity to work. This fence-post light features 4 white LEDs, a solar panel on top of the item that captures Sun’s energy, and a dusk to dawn sensor that turns the light ON and OFF automatically.

Pine-top-511-0007-LED-Fence-Post-Cap-LightThe light comes in 4-inch and 5-inch vinyl posts and 4-by-4-inch wood posts. Made of durable ABS plastic with a weatherproof finish that comes in a variety of colors such as black, copper, white, the fence-post cap comes in various measures (view specification below for more info). The light needs no wiring making it really easy to install anywhere you want.

The light requires two batteries (which are included in the unit) for working. As stated above, a solar panel is located on the top of the cap that keep refuel the batteries which produces energy to lit-up the lights effortlessly. The light lit-up 8 or sometimes more than 8 hours after a full battery recharge.

The item comes in gift wrap, so if you want to send it to someone as a gift item you can do it easily.

As with any products there are some pros and cons with this fence-post cap, some customers complained that the description does not notify that this lights isn’t a good for working in winter season, really disappointed concern because most of the people like to install one time and it should work round the year.

Some complained that the mounting system is really dumb and fear that it might fall off while mounting the lights, or concerns about screwing them into the fence post. Also the plastic cover is not a good quality, sometimes it cracks while installing/uninstalling the unit.

The batteries mounted right underneath the solar cell because of that the batteries get extremely hot from the Sun’s heat, makes them too hot and decrease their lifetime. Not an easy task to disassemble the unit, the screws are at a weird angle so the head gets stripped when you unscrew it and one last really annoying thing is you have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the batteries.

But there are things you can do to avoid the above points, such as for mounting the item on a fence or a wall, run a thin bid of clear silicon around the bottom. Its invisible, it will keep them from falling off, and helps seal them from the bad weather effects somewhat. And if you want to change the batteries simply run a blade around the silicon to pull them and get the batteries replaced.

And here is something which excites you to buy this item; this light is brighter than most other post lights since it has four bright white LED’s. it also have a nice square shaped large solar cell on top of unit, which gets enough energy to work throughout night once it get fully charged. Last but not the least is the price of the item, which is in a normal range for anyone to afford it.
