I like the form-factor and the single-point mounting. Time for a decent (non-Amazon) BLF-type review with tear-down, cell type, runtime, and beamshots included. I won’t buy without that.

blueb8llz, you need to apply the slickdeals 2XXJJYX5 coupon in Amazon checkout and it takes off the $3. Unit discount increases with quantity. Non-prime and less than $35 incurs the shipping. Well reviewed on Amazon and looks like an improvement over last year’s model.

I’ve seen many similar ones, so far all horribly blue-white glare boxes.
And I“ve been looking for several years for something actually glare-shielded and with a tolerable emitter.

I purchased two of them the other day. I plan on mounting them on the two stone gateposts for my driveway. Just landmark lighting, so that the gateposts don’t accidentally get run over at night. They are sometimes difficult to see, especially in the rain.

I received a notice from Amazon yesterday saying the delivery date has been updated to Monday, November 23, 2015 – Monday, November 30, 2015. Still waiting for the shipping notice. So, I guess the items are not currently in stock.

EDIT: I received my shipping notice today, two days after placing my Amazon order.

These are COB emitters. If I’m not mistaken, they are cool white without the horrible blue tint.

I’ll try to remember to report back with my findings, once I get the light.

Heck, I might even write up a review of the light. 0:)

Received my pair of Litom Solar Powered Motion Sensor Outdoor Lights, charged them in the sunlight on Saturday afternoon and Sunday (12+ hours).

Each unit comes with an instruction manual, two mounting screws and two plastic anchors.

The output modes are as follows:

Mode   Output

Off        Off

 1          Constant medium (50-60lm)

 2          Standby Low (10lm) / High (150-170lm)*

 3          Standby Off     /         High (150-170lm)*

 

* - Motion sensing modes

Mode 1 is a simple on at dusk, off at dawn operation (activated by photocell). It is bright enough to illuminate a footpath or building corner, but not much more.

Mode 2 is a motion-sensing mode. While at rest, it puts out a low beam of about 10 lumens. When activated, it puts out about 150 to 170 lumens. For my purposes, to mark my driveway endposts, this is ideal. Bright enough to see them, but not too bright as to be distracting to the neighbors.

Mode 3 is a motion-sensing mode. While at rest, it is completely dark. When activated, it puts out 150 to 170 lumens. Note: 150 to lumens is bright enough to illuminate a 30’ × 30’ area with night-adjusted vision, but not bright enough to substitute for patio lighting.

This is a picture of Mode 2 (Standby Low) on my endpost ………….. and this is a reference shot showing the endpost:
. . .

Motion-Sensing

Motion-sensing is done by a Passive Infra-Red (PIR) system. It is sensitive to relative changes in infrared (heat) sources, like human bodies. When I tested it, it appeared to be sensitive up to 25 feet and within a cone of about 40 degrees (20 degrees on each side of center). And when activated, the high beam turns on for approximately 11-12 seconds before resuming its standby mode. If I stay motionless, the light remains in standby mode. Only if I move within its range am I detected. So, if I want the high beam to remain on, I have to keep moving.

Tint

The tint is a cool white. Not obnoxiously blue like some lights. I’d call it a 1B tint. I personally like neutral to warm tints, but I found the tint of this light to be reasonably good.

Other

It seems to be well manufactured. Fit and finish details appear to be first-rate. During installation, I accidentally dropped the unit from about 3-1/2 feet and it survived none the worse for wear.

I have not had an opportunity to see how well it performs overnight or during long periods of inclement weather.

Nor have I had a chance to test it for weatherproofing.

And only time will tell about its long term performance and durability.

But so far, so good. Smile

The first thing i do with any of these outdoor LED solar lights, is take them apart, and coat all the connections, switch, PC board, electronics and batteries with a heavy oil or grease to prevent corrosion from moisture and rain, and prevent parasitic drain from water salts coating the internals. I still have several LED solar motion lights still running strong after 3 years of outdoors weathering.

DBSAR:

Thanks for the tip! I think I’ll do that.

Besides, I’m curious as to what is inside. Evil

Please make pictures of the innards, if it is well made I will order one. I am especially interested in the batteries, I hope it are standard ones which can be replaced through some brand ones….that is what I do first with these lamps…

I have a spray bottle which is fast drying polyurethane(plastic) it is made for PCBs and I bought it in a electronics store. This is nice to insulate and coat PCBs, the advantage is that you can still see through(it’s clear) and solder through(it burns away)
I have heard that petroleum jelly with 10-20% beewax is the best for making things corrosion resistant but I haven’t cooked myself this greasysoup.

Edit:just have seen that this is US Amazon… Sad
Some China clones claim to use lion cells, I would like a 18650 powered solar light a lot…

Here’s the back of the unit before and after removing the cover label and retaining screws.

. . .

Lifting up the battery cover reveals (what else?) the battery. Rotating the back panel opens up the unit.
Note: Slight pressure is required to snap the panel out. Ditto for reinstallation.

. . .

And here’s the battery:

odd to see a Li-Ion cell in these and not a Ni-Cd or a NiMh as found in most solar lights.

Nice and clear pictures from the innards
Is there room for a bigger battery?

Looks like if there is even a free spot to lower the resistor which is inline with the LEDs… Evil

With the probably cheap lion in there and considered that these things get pretty hot in the sun the batteries seem pretty safe today…otherwise there would be some rumors of exploding solar lanterns around.

By dremmeling or sawcutting the battery housing area of the back panel, you could clear enough space for an 18650 battery tube.

But the question is, would that improve performance?

Supposedly, it takes 8 hours of direct sunshine to fully charge the battery.

During the summer, Modes 2 and 3 should fully last the night. (At 10 lumens, the 14500 battery is probably good for at least 25 hours.) During the winter, there might be some periods of bad weather where they do not last the night, but larger batteries won’t solve the problem of lack of daily sunshine.

As for Mode 1, during the summer it might last longer with a bigger battery. However, the problem of winter lack of sunshine would remain the same. So, if you really need a brighter, longer-lasting light, I’d recommend purchasing a different model of outdoor lighting.

I can think of only one good reason for putting in a bigger battery. And that is because you can put in a bigger battery. Evil

. . .

For most people, I think the problem won’t be reserve battery power. Their problem will be where to situate the light to maximize catchment of available sunshine.

And for those who choose Mode 3 (actuated only upon motion detection), partial or indirect sunshine might be more than adequate to operate the light for a few seconds every day.

how much current does this light pull?
If you charge less through sun than you need in the night it might be useful to have a bigger battery which you sometimes charge on the grid to compensate this. I do this one or two times a year with my nimh Lanterns and I have the feeling that it helps for some weeks.

Sorry, but I didn’t notice and none of the pictures that I took show the top of the battery.

I don’t know and I don’t have any of the spec sheets to calculate the current draw. I can only speculate that the 8 COB leds draw less than a typical XM-L type emitter for the same given output.

Your idea of supplementing the charge would help for Modes 2 and 3, where the battery is only partially discharged each night.

. . .

I found the dealer HarborDirect claims that the output of the light is 176 lumens. That’ s consistent with my visual estimate of 150-170 lumens. My estimate was based on a ceiling bounce test, using a BLF A6 (1A) for reference.

I do want to order more. I emailed them to ask for aa quantity discount on an order for myself and they replied asking how many I was interested in ordering. Then I got the idea of asking them for a discount for blf. So I emailed them back to see if they would do that. I’m waiting for their reply. I really like this light for supplemental security lighting at my house.

What do you recommend for this? Vaseline? 90-weight gear lube?

Why do I carry a flashlight?  Because half of every day is dark.
