I was not sure what forum to post this in. First, my GF tried the one dollar solar lights at the Dollar Tree store. She said they worked great so I decided to try them. I bought 12 and WOW they work great! I am also going to use 2 or 3 of these while boondocking this year.

I plan on mounting some on my boat dock. A little lite goes a long way in the dark. How do they sell these for a buck? Third world sweat shops?

Good question. Walmart was asking $1.19 for them last year here.

We use them all the time. They work great in areas with no street lights. Just enough light to see the ground and not invasive to the neighbors. After I spend some time enjoying beverages at a fellow gathering some distance away, they are a great navigation toll for assisting me in finding my way home, kinda like airport runway lights...... Darn beer.............................................................


Full timing it since July 2012

We've been using the solar path lights, the flat ones that sit on the ground, for quite a few years now. To conserve battery life, we move them to the inside as night lights. Very useful.

We've had some (not dollar store but cheap) for a couple years now and ya they don't lite up that brite. But we mainly use them as markers for big rocks, CG posts that stick up 2' or anything we may trip over in the dark. They also work great as a night lite in the bathroom. We just lay one in the tub.

Oh, I get it. It's what they cost, not what they're worth.
