My front yard light quit working. I decided, rather than repair it I'd spend the vast sum of $5 and buy a solar light. Our homeowners association requires we have a yard light. So, after a week I've decided it's not quite as bright as the old electric bulb but it meets the requirements and I think I'll keep it. These solar yard lights are much improved over the ones a few years ago. They're brighter and more reliable. I'm pretty darn impressed.
