Color-Changing Solar Gazing Ball 4.6 5 75 75
Gazing Ball This is an excellent and fun product, and it worked like a charm from the beginning. I was impressed by how long the solar charger is able to keep the light glowing. I've seen it as late as 3 a.m., glowing like crazy. It's pretty too. May 30, 2013
AWESOME I've been looking for a solar ball like this for 2 years. I've found nothing close to being as beautiful as this one! It surpassed my expectations. It's beautiful when not lit during the day, and stays brightly lit (color or white choice settings) all night even on a cloudy day. It is my most favorite purchase ever! I also bought one for my sister and she loves it too! You won't be disappointed! June 13, 2013
Pearlygirl The only recommendation I have is that it does need something more substantial to help hold the pedestal in place so that it doesn't tip over or get knocked over. There is a stake that comes with it but the stake needs to be taller. Other than that, I love it! The changing colors are mesmerizing. I can sit for hours and stare at it. My neighbors and visitors always comment on it. I love it so much that I am going to get another one for my back yard. It begins glowing as soon as it gets dark and when I get up at 5:00 am, it is still glowing. I love having something so unique that none of my neighbors have one like it. August 31, 2013
A testament to this companies customer service commitment. This is the second globe I have purchsed. The first lasted 3 years before the solar panal dried out from the Nevada rain and sun. The lighting element rusted, but the pedistal and globe were in great condition. I ordered another one and it arrived within 2 days. I then e-mailed if they could ship me an element, and solar panal to replace the worn out parts on my first globe. I was willing to pay.They did an unexpected act of kindness by sending me the two parts at no charge. That says a lot for a companies customer service commitment. September 13, 2013
Delightful!! I have a small hanging solar gazing ball and two regular gazing balls on stands and thought that a large solar gazing ball on a stand would look great in my garden. I ordered this one and am greatly satisfied with it. The quality is great and easy to put together. The colors look great at night. It comes on at dusk and is still on at dawn when I sit on the patio to drink coffee. September 18, 2013
Gazing Ball This gazing ball -- I prefer to call it by the more traditional name of "witch ball" -- works perfectly. It glows brightly all night with intense colors, usually lasting all the way to dawn (here in usually sunny Colorado, where there's plenty of sun to charge it). It isn't deterred by rain or even cloudy days. When a child mistakenly broke the glass globe, Improvements was kind enough to send a replacement at no charge -- amazing customer service.

super I love it it turns colors and it can also stay white. I have 2 other gaze balls but not like this this sharp. but it stopped working can I buy solar panel and element? October 1, 2013
Beautiful I love my gazing ball from you. Had one for about 7 years but had to redo the surface as I leave it out all the time, snow and all. Just spray painted it with a stone paint and is beautiful again but wanted a back up one in case I couldn't it anymore but this one was bigger. That is really beautiful. This last order is for my daughter-in- law because they have a wonderful yard so thought this would a nice thank you gift and she loved it as always liked mine. Now it is lighting up her pretty yard. Thank you for such a nice product. It has given years of enjoyment. November 13, 2013
Great Product I Love It I've Been Eyeing This For A Few Months Now March 7, 2014
Great addition to our landscape I was looking for something to add some interest to our garden in the front of our home. We recently bought a new home and had some really nice landscaping added. The garden area in front of screened front porch was the perfect place for this gazing globe. We like to sit out there evenings and have a glass of wine and watch our globe changing colors while we converse with our neighbors as they pass by our home walking their dogs or just getting some exercise. I am thinking of purchasing a second globe for another spot in our yard outside of our lanai. The battery was already charged right out of the box and we were pleased to get our first light show as soon as it was assembled. March 8, 2014
Color-Changing Ball Amazing I wanted a solar-powered gazing ball and was thrilled to find one. We are very happy with this product. It looks lovely in my garden and works as specified. I was so surprised to see it still glowing in the morning when I left for work! Amazing! I purchased the holiday dog sled setup two years ago and was very happy with the Improvements Catalog quality of merchandise. April 20, 2014
Razzle Dazzle Have to give it up for this one. 5 STARS ALL THE WAY! What an added delight to the yard! May 5, 2014
Beautiful solar gazing ball there is something magical about this ball..it is so beautiful to watch and our neighbors love it too.Thank you so much for a product such as this and we received it so fast and was packed well so we were pleased with that as well. I would highly recommend this for all who want something different and beautiful to enjoy in your garden or yard.you will not regret it.We love ours. May 26, 2014
I love these globes! I have 3 of these globes & pedestals in my yards. Normally, I only have 2, but, since we can no longer get parts for them, I bought a third to replace one of mine that is not working very well. They last for at least a few years, so I consider them worth the money, for the lovely colors they add to the garden. May 27, 2014
Solar Gazing Ball We had been looking for something like this around our locale for months. Finally found just what we wanted and couldn't be more pleased. May 29, 2014
glowing ball this is a little on the expensive side so i hope it goes all summer and longer but it works good and looks fantastic ive only had it a week June 11, 2014
Great item It worked right out of the box. Good selection of light colors. Not sure of the life of the battery or where to buy. Can you supply a vendor, this would be a great help to all purchaser. Thanks for a good product. June 13, 2014
This product is an attention getter!!!! I purchased the same product 6 years ago and it was fine. This Summer it did not work properly so I didn't hesitate to order another one which I am very happy with. I also recommended this product to my daughter several years ago and she is still pleased with its performance. June 17, 2014
Beautiful Product. Really enjoy it at night under the stars This piece of yard jewelry is a great addition to garden. I gave it as a birthday present and my friend couldn't believe I bought her one. She's wanted one for several years and was surprised and glad she finally got it. Only concern is what happens if the glass ball is broken? Is it possible to order a replacement? Love the catalogue June 27, 2014
very pretty When I received it, I assembled it and it worked out of the box. I was excited to put it in my back yard. The only thing I wished was that the stake it came with for the base was actually metal. Where I live here in TX, the soil is clay and so i was unable to put the stake down even a quarter of the way. I was afraid if I forced it it would break. I'll have to figure how to fix that, but other than that it was a nice purchase. Also this is the tallest solar globe I have found so far while searching the internet. July 3, 2014
Beautiful! Really pleased. Adds beauty to your lawn at night. Very good price for a lovely product. Buy this changing ball - you won't be sorry. July 10, 2014
Great addition to our flower garden We recently had a solar gazing ball stolen from our garden. I searched for a replacement and discovered this one from the Improvements website. It was delivered on time and well packaged. We like it much better than our previous gazing ball. It has brighter colors and is much more visible from the street adding to the curb appeal of our home. August 2, 2014
5th purchase After purchasing mine, several years ago, I have since purchased for my daughter, sister, mother and a second home. I LOVE this product. It is so beautiful at night and shines so bright. I have replaced the solar batteries, 2 times in mine and it continues to keep on going. September 1, 2014
Missing My Gazing Ball This is my 2nd gazing ball I have purchased. My first one quit working and we really missed it. We did not move it inside in the winter (Wisconsin) and the power control box became rusty inside due to moisture. We wil move our new one inside during winter months, although it was very pretty in the winter time as well. November 23, 2011
Pretty Color Changing Sphere The unit operated right out of the box. I love the changing colors. I mounted the solar cell on my roof to get more sun since there are a lot of trees in my yard. My only concern was that the sphere just sits on top of the pedestal with nothing holding it on. I suspect a running dog could crash into it & the sphere could fall off & get damaged. I put two squirts of caulk on the pedestal to prevent this. August 3, 2012
Gorgeous Gazing Ball I purchased 2 of these and the are just gorgeous. My only problem is that the batteries supplied ate pretty lousy! Upon changing them out with a couple of Radio Shack batteries, the globes worked longer and made it thru ALL of the colors they were supposed to!! (Had trouble ever displaying the color purple of fushia, which is pictured in the catalogue). Only question I have is whether the wire between the solar panel and the LED light component inside the globe can be lenthened to , say 20'. I believe Improvements would sell many more of these if the wire was longer!! September 20, 2012
solar multi-color gazing ball Got this as a birthady present for my sister. It is lightweight and where she lives it is windy- which i hadn't thought of- so for now it is in the house. The "cracked glass" ball adds tremendously to the effect. When the solar panel is exposed to light it shuts off. We love the solar aspect, the fading color changes, and the "cracked glass" effect. She loves it and i love the fact that i was able to find something that was just for her to enjoy. The only downside is it was made in China. I would have paid slightly more for an American made product. September 28, 2012
Beautiful to watch changing colors at night. Bought this for my mom for Mother's Day and she loves it. It is beautiful at night and attractive during the day. The only thing I might suggest is a better way to anchor it into the ground as the plastic stake provided does not go up far enough into the base to make it stable during a high wind so I ended up pounding a longpiece of PVC pipe in the ground . Otherwise very nice product. May 22, 2013
Solar light lovely but, oh, that battery... This is a lovely solar gazing ball and, when properly charged, the changing colors are quite beautiful. However, I have had a lot of problems with the battery in the solar panel. It lasted not quite two months -- I have since been informed that this is not unusual for this particular battery -- and the instructions for replacing the battery fail to specify that there is quite a variety in "3.2 V 400 or higher mAh lithium phosphate rechargable batteries". Actually, the instructions for the battery are quite worthless overall. You need to probably special order, depending upon where you live, a battery with all the above specifications -- and I would strongly recommend one greater than 400 mAh, which doesn't last long at all -- and be sure it is only 14 mm wide. Most are 18 mm wide and will not fit in the case. May 30, 2013
Solar Gazing Ball We absolutely love the Solar Gazing Ball. We are on our fourth one as the first two lasted only approximately three years before water corroded the contacts inside the battery charging unit. There are no replacement parts and we had to replace the whole unit. The first one was replaced at no charge and we had to pay for the second unit. Would like to see replacement parts made available.

Can I buy an extension to the power cable?

There is insufficient sunlight in the area where we want to place our gazing ball and 14 feet is not enough cable to get the solar panel where it will get enough sunlight. Is it possible to get an extension or longer cable?
