Solar Color-Changing Patio Lights 4.5 5 52 52
A bit disappointing... These things are lovely and cheerful, arrived in good shape, and are pretty much a no-brainer to put up - but unfortunately they do not work consistently. They only seem to work well when they get A LOT of direct, unobstructed sunlight (I have the solar panel facing due South) and don't do as well when charging on an overcast day. Adding to the disappointment is the fact that they don't seem to have any fixed amount of "on" time (usually a few hours) so they just drain the battery into the night and the colors get all wonky until they just give up and go out. For the money, I'd try to find something else. May return them, we'll see how it goes... January 26, 2014
Beautiful while it lasts... These are beautiful lights when they're lit up. Unfortunately, they only last a couple of hours once it gets dark. Now that day light savings is gone, the lights go out around 7pm. Not worth the money. November 8, 2013
great features Solar Color-Changing Patio Lights Excellent Value October 30, 2013
Most unique lights ever! There is no repetitive pattern, and the colors are beautiful. LOVE these lights. I only wish they came in a box that you could store them in better. When I put them away they get in a tangled ball. September 10, 2013

Answer: 
Ever heard of clear tape.....you can put these any where you want. I hooked the power source stake thru the looped wire when i got down to the bottom of the post I put them on. I holds it just fine. You can also take the power source off the lights during the day and put it in direct sun light. At sunset plug it back in to the lights where ever you strung them......?

Answer: 
It has to be staked to the ground. It comes with about 12 feet extension to work with. An improvement would be some way to attach it to the roof.

It comes with a ground stake. Everything is light weight. I mounted mine to the Gutters on my deck's roof. Hole saw, and the tube that connects to the ground stake, wire, caulk and duct tape.

No building attachments, just the post. However it wouldn't be hard to get parts from your local man store to mount it on a wall.

Answer: 
No you cannot hook strands together easily. I guess you could if you decided to do some minor rewiring but you would then go through the battery pack very quickly since you would be running more lights off the batteries and the lights would not run very long. There really is no reason to run strings together since all lights go through their colors individually anyway (no master control to keep all lights the same color at the same time). The only other reason I could think of would be to get the solor panel into the sun from where you hang your lights. If you really needed to you could add wire if you are able to do minor wire splicing. Hope this helps.

They hook into their own power source but just line them up close and they'll look like they're all one...no big deal.

Is there a way to convert this to electrical?

Here is the setup. I live in a rainy state where it rains more often than it is sunny. I am building a covered deck that is about the size of my home and want to put this kind of light up but will the usual weather at my location make it difficult for the solar power to charge enough to use at night? If it doesn't get enough solar power is there a way to wire it into the electrical on the house so that it will still work?

If that is not possible, would it be possible to buy it with just electrical and no solar capability? Even if it means to special order it.

Answer: 
Look at the power source...it unplugs and you can put it in the sunlight or out in a clear sky area. Even on an overcast day Lynnwood WA gets enough light to run these lights. Then my dear when the sun goes down you walk over to your lights (that are hung in the shaded area) and plug them back in. Now wasn't that easy? This works for all of you that aren't in CA or AZ or FL. Hang them where ever you want, put the power unit out in the sun during the day. How hard can it be to walk over to the lights as the sun goes down. I use to live in the NW they'll work.

Thank you for your question.
The string of globes if taunt on the deck rail would accomodate 13' of coverage as the specs in the specification tab indicate. There is a 11' lead wire to the solar panel which is extra footage.
