So Far So Good
Bought to light up an area by main door and it gives out an excellent light but it is summer time! Will see how it goes when the nights are dark and it is needed most. The position of the light is not directly facing South and it would be good if instead of screws it could be clipped on so that in the wintertime it could be unclipped and taken to a South facing position to re-charge. Otherwise this seems an excellent product.

A musr to have
I bought 1 to test it out and then bought another 3 because they are so good. Not only is the product good, but the price from this site is the best I have seen, and the delivery time was excellent too.Every bit worth the 5 start rating.
By Edward on Jul 5, 2014
Bought two for the dark side of the driveway to replace the ageing Solar Garden Spotlight. Much MUCH better - especially with the low level standby mode, and when activated, the lighting level is far higher that expected. Brilliant. Might have a couple more soon.

Curve Top Product!
This is the best solar light i have ever come across! Gives off so much light bought 2 will be buying 6 more!
By D titterton on Jun 22, 2014
So far so good. It works nicely. My only critic is that I wish it didn't glow at night, I find that a little silly.
By Paolo on Jun 8, 2014
Great so far !
So far it is working extremely well. Will wait to see how it goes when the weather is darker !
By Richard Briggs on Jun 8, 2014
I bought this just to check out how good it was. The problem with solar lighting is it is not easy to understand how much light they give out. This product is excellent. It's normal low level light is adequate but when movement is detected it brightens considerably and is perfect for those areas that need extra light at night.
By Edward on Jun 7, 2014
New model better for winter at 51N
New model which does not have the glow mode promises to be better for the winter months as my earlier model would not last the night until end of Feb in southern England (51N). This one is identical except goes off > on with movement after dark and no glow mode. Pity they could not make the glow mode a switchable option.
By Andy on Jun 7, 2014
This is the second one of these i have bought,the first has been performing admirably through the winter. This purchase was for a customer of mine and it is now fixed to a large wooden garden arch i constructed so if its as good as number one we have two happy customers!
By john on Jun 5, 2014
Excellent product, very useful in dark areas of the garden

Curve Solar Light
Very happy with the light- works well.
By Tony Riley on May 21, 2014
Curve solar motion light
Excellent product and service. I was a bit unsure when I received them because they were so small and I thought I would have to order more. However, two of them light my small garden beautifully.
By Briony on May 16, 2014
Great little light
Small but surprised by how bright it is. So good I bought the Eye security light. Great delivery service too.
By Gareth on May 13, 2014
Awesome product at a fantastic price. Fast delivery, looks great and easy to install.
Thanks to the Solarcenter team on another great product. Will be using you again very soon.
By Paul from Wisbech on May 12, 2014
Great little light. Easy installation. Good bright light. No problem. Don't waste money on cheaper units. This one WORKS!
By David on May 9, 2014
When I opened the package the light was smaller than I expected, but once installed I was pleasantly surprised on how well this small unit performed. The light is enough to illuminate my door and surroundings making it easier to guide the key into the lock.
Will purchase some more as I was very pleased with the whole process,
By Tony on May 8, 2014
Worked first time
So easy to install - screwed 3 units into plastic guttering on ground floor giving good effective illumination from garage to front door.
By Roger Freeman on May 8, 2014
Superb. Easy to install/works perfectly/unobtrusive/excellent delivery service.
By Hugh on Apr 23, 2014
I fixed it on three dark steps.It was easy to fit and lights them up brilliantly
By Anne C on Apr 19, 2014
Excellent value for money and very quick delivery.
Light works well but the real trial will be in the winter.
By Peter on Apr 17, 2014
So Far So Good
Purchased 2 of these lights to use around our camp site at key points where we do not want lights on all the time and with no electric power close by these seemed like a good bet. So far been in operation now for 3 weeks and they do the job.
By Nigel Featherstone on Apr 16, 2014
Amazing!!!! The small light with a big glow. Thank you for offering quality products at great prices. I'm ordering another 2 :-)
By Naseer Muhammad on Apr 7, 2014
In the solar light market you get what you pay for. These lights are super , bright compact and they look
Ike they will be durable. Great service from A to Z . Well done
By Steven keen on Apr 3, 2014
brilliant curve solar
brilliant service,delivery next day
really easy to fix[2 self tapping screws to fascia board]
light is so bright,couldn't believe it!
this is the 2nd one I've bought,i was so impressed with the first
By bill tomkins on Mar 19, 2014
After searching amazon for solar lights & finding1 similar to the curve, i read the disappointing reviews & a positive 1 for this site & light. Delivery was amazingly prompt & informative 3 texts before asking if date was ok & a way to change it if not, On arrival i read the info & as it said a south facing wall i thought it would be unsuitable for our door on an east facing wall, however on installing it & leaving it 3 days to charge before 1st start. i am pleasantly surprised how well it works it holds charge from dusk till dawn even on dull overcast UK days, Would definitely purchase another solar product from the "solar centre" VERY HAPPY!!!!
By Phil Maxwell on Mar 16, 2014
Ideal for lighting the path by the side of the house and still works first thing in the morning. The neighbour is so impressed he has bought two!
By chris on Mar 13, 2014
Bought a second one of these as we were so pleased with the first one, and its just as good! Suitable amount of light for dealing with keys without being a 'searchlight' to annoy neighbours. Responds well to movement. Yes, the first one did struggle a bit in the dark days of January but in all fairness the weather was appalling and there are no problems normally. Would thoroughly recommend the light and the service provided by the Solar Centre.
By Helen on Mar 10, 2014
Curve Solar Motion
This is the 2nd of these I have bought. I bought one over 6 months ago and it has provided motion sensitive lighting over our back door all winter. It's high quality and very reliable.
By Peter on Mar 10, 2014
Curve Solar Motion
Very good simple product. .Ideal above garage when trying to find the right key and put it in the lock at night. Surprisingly bright light.
By Steve on Mar 7, 2014
Just the job
Works perfectly giving enough light to see when putting stuff in the bins outside the back door.
Excellent service and fast delivery.
By Keith on Mar 1, 2014
Bought two of these to provide light over entrance gates. Work perfectly and give sufficient light when it comes to unlocking gates. Definitely recommend.
By Colin on Feb 16, 2014
After two weeks of January, the Curve glowed all night on dim and still lit my path first thing on a dark
winter morning. Amazing! It occasionally gave up and didn't come on at all, only to resume the next day. In fairness, this has been the
dimmest, wettest January ever.
Meanwhile, my other brand of solar cell (from USA) fizzles out late every night, and is completely useless
in the morning.
By Steve Thompson on Jan 31, 2014
Better than imposters
I have bout 12 then found them cheaper on other sites, however it is the Solar centre lights although dear are much better.
They are much brighter and also last longer so better to pay the extra Â£5 the old saying stands, you get what you pay for.
By Roy Liverpool on Jan 24, 2014
worked for 2 days then packed in disappointed after reading reveiws
By p stevens on Jan 22, 2014
Smaller than I thought but does the job well. Easy to install and as long as you charge for the three days it comes on at dusk and responds to movement. Have also got the PIR shed solar unit for the garage. Excellent when getting out of the car. Customer service very high.
By William on Jan 21, 2014
Excellent value for money
Neat small light with an excellent beam of light. Much smaller than it looks in the picture. So good we are planning to purchase more. As ever very impressive customer service.
By Jane on Jan 13, 2014
Great delivery service. Easy instillation and work great. Not had long but to date a great product.
By Dave on Jan 10, 2014
Be careful where you intend to use them...
All worked as expected, and the delivery etc. was timely. Howeverâ€¦
These lights will probably meet my need for 80% of the year. I have 2 on an east facing wall and 2 on south facing. At the time of writing (Jan 2014) 10 hours of winter sun is not enough to power 14 hours of dimmed operation darkness on either wall.
The south facing ones accumulate enough power during daylight to remain on until after we are in bed, but are out by the morning. This is OK for when we venture to that part of the house, but doesn't give teh security effect we hoped for.
The east facing only manage to power up every few days. I guess as the ratio of daylight to night improves we'd will be OK for most of the year, but at this time the east facing ones are not doing the job.
The major improvement for me would be the option for them to only come on only when triggered by the PIR. It's the 14 to 16 hours of being in dimmed mode that makes these unsuitable for my purposes.
Iâ€™ll probably relocate the east facing ones and go for a different (non-solar) solution for that wall.
By JamesM on Jan 10, 2014
These lights are excellent. We had previously purchased the Astron 64 solar security light and the Astron Solar floodlight. Both work fantastically well and give a good light on the drive and garden. The curve motion lights are on the patio and are working extremely well and showing up all the shrubs when the light is triggered. Couldn't be happier. Added peace of mind for security. If you trigger one of the lights and you shouldn't be there you're in trouble...............
Excellent service by the Solar Centre too - sent out very promptly after Christmas.
By Marian on Jan 7, 2014
Excellent bit of kit
I was initially sceptical, having checked the physically size of this device. But having read the reviews I took the plunge, and I'm so glad I did. This device really does put out an extraordinary amount of light for it's size.
By Dave Swift on Dec 14, 2013
excellent design, easy to fit, charges enough to power light throughout the long nights, even with regular visits by the passing local cats
By Dale on Dec 11, 2013
light duration and intensity impressive
Impressive endurance, good level of light.
Would like it if the was a way to ange the solar panel towards the low winter sun and leave the lamp horizontal althought to be fair it seems to be harvesting enough energy.
By G P on Dec 9, 2013
Worked for a week only
Good bright light just the perfect for rear
Entrance of house I thought it was for all year round use.!!!!!!
By Ken wakinshaw on Dec 7, 2013
Excellent Service. Surprised how small the unit was when it arrived but not at all disappointed it gives out amazing light! will buy some more as soon as we can. Would definitely recommend.
By Alan on Dec 5, 2013
Very bright indeed. Quick and easy install. Solid build!
Right now it's mounted outside (deactivated) while it tops up the battery. But am confident it would function very well as we purchased fairy lights which are now no their 4th winter -- working as well as when we first got them.
By M. Lansbury on Dec 2, 2013
Solar light curve
Excellent service. Ordered Sunday night and full order delivered on Tuesday with std free delivery. Lights up the area well.
By Glenn on Nov 27, 2013
CURVE MOTION LAMP. Amazing delivery speed! Light is very well made,so easy to fit and for its size gives a good light.Excellent price now its on offer too. If it works ok from now on theres not much closer to perfect than this...Thankyou solarcentre!
By john on Nov 27, 2013
Small, angled so needs to be quite high up, so that the sensor works. Gives out a good light, although due to lights angle unfortunately lights more wall than area.

curve solar motion light
We bought curve solar motion light for garden shed last winter and were so impressed have bought 2 more for additional winter security for house. More reliable and cheaper than our electric pir light.

A good bright small light, that lasts all night. Service from Solarecenter is first class.

Curve Solar Motion Light
If the light continues to work as efficiently as the service from the solar centre I will be extremely happy! Small and unobtrusive but not lacking in power, very pleased so far.

Solar Motion Light
Received next day on Free Delivery. East to fit,fitted above our front door gives very good light. thinking of another for a different location
By J C Skipper on Nov 10, 2013
Excellent,a lot brighter than expected, recommended
By colin on Nov 6, 2013
Curve Solar Motion Light
So far so good (after four nights). Throws out impressive amount light for its tiny size. Metal casing and screws ought to be better quality to maintain all-round quality.
By mowbray on Nov 6, 2013
Curve Solar Motion Light
My wife was very sceptical about buying a solar light but now after a year she wants to get some more.It is positioned above our porch which is south facing my wife works nights so when returning home it aids her in inserting the key into the door and because it is so bright it shines through the door glass helping her lock the door.Got ours in a sale for Â£12 will be keeping an eye out for the sale this year.
By DT68 on Sep 21, 2013
Curve Solar Light
Was concerned when I opened the box because its quite a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but it is also much brighter than I thought it would be so all's well that ends well.
By Seb E on Aug 16, 2013
got a light that looks identical to this from an amazon seller for Â£8. Took 3 weeks to arrive because it came from hong kong and it started playing up after a week. Went back on amazon and found the curve so phoned solar centre direct and they did me a discount. The lights do look the same but the curve is heavier better quality and brighter than the amazon one.

Curve Solar Motion Light Instructions
How it works
During the day the sun charges the Curve's battery giving it the power it needs to work after dark.
After dark the Curve automatically lights up and emits a constant gentle glow which is roughly a fifth of its full brightness. Once motion is detected the Curve illuminates fully and stays fully lit until 30 seconds after motion stops. After motion has stops the Curve goes back to emitting a constant gentle glow until motion is detected again. In the morning the Curve turns off automatically and begins charging ready for the night ahead. Once turned on the Curve is fully automatic, but it can be turned off completely at any time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Hi, does the solar panel have to have been in full sun as I am not sure my requirement would meet this i.e I am not sure it would ever be in the sun. Thanks
By Amanda on Jun 12, 2014
The solar panel needs to be receiving as much direct, unobstructed, sunlight as possible.
Any idea how many lumens it emits please.
By Charmaine on Jun 11, 2014
It is estimated at 100 lumens.
what colour is the finish
By alethea on Mar 20, 2014
It is brushed aluminium.
Does the curve solar motion light have a movement sensor built in?
By Martin on Jan 23, 2014
Yes, the PIR is mounted under the lip at the front to detect motion.
How deep is the light from the wall plate to front edge? and how wide an area does it illuminate and how long does it stay on for when triggered?
By Michael on Jan 23, 2014
The Curve is 130mm deep. It illuminates an area of up to 10m sq metres and stays on for 30 seconds when triggered - It will stay on for as long as there's motion.
Can the Curve Solar Light be positioned on an outside wall unprotected from the weather?
By Peter on Jan 23, 2014
Yes, it's IP64 waterproof so can be installed in exposed locations.
Will it come on every time a car goes past.? The road is about 20feet away from garage.
By Robert on Jan 23, 2014
It won't pick up motion that far away. The max distance is approx 4m, this varies a little depending on the height the light is installed.
