Works in WinterA well positioned solar panel will enable this product to work in typical UK winter conditions.
250 Triggers Per NightOnce motion is detected, this light can activate up to 250 times a night.
50 Watt EquivalentBrightness is equivalent to a 50 watt incandescent bulb as you might use in the home.
No MainsThis light is solar powered and does not require mains power to work.
Bought one during the darkest days of winter to see how well the battery coped. Main attraction was the ability to locate the panel in a good sunlight position while the light can be in the shade. Was impressed enough to order two more. They work best in locations with some shelter and one of the ball sockets was loose on one of them, but easily remedied by judicious wedging to fix in place..
Installed the lights just below waist height which limits PIR range somewhat but still does the job and a lot easier than geting power to that location.

Flimsy and now stopped!
Had this for nearly 2 years now. Its not very sturdy, but light it emitted was reasonable. Although it has stopped working completely now.

I agree that the ball sockets could be firmer, but on the plus side easy to install & light worked o.k. first time, after only a few hours exposure to sunlight. I have just purchased an EVO SMD, which I intend to use in place of the EVO 15, which I consider would be ideal for the shed, which has no mains electricity. Summing up: good value for a utility light.

I have left this product assembled but off in the garden to charge, two days later the light and battery assembly was full of water and ice had formed in the light unit. I have dried it out but I am not expecting it to work for very long. It is not sufficiently well manufactured to be rain proof.

It is unusual to have this unit fill with water so we would like to investigate this case and replace the unit.
Easy to install but the ball sockets are completely useless and won't hold the lamp head or solar panel in position. Summing up cheap muck springs to mind

How it works
The Solar PIR Utility Light has a powerful 0.6W solar panel that charges the high capacity battery during the day. At night the Solar PIR Utility Light lights up as soon as it detects motion and turns itself off 25 seconds after motion stops.
Using it as a Solar Security Light:
Simply position your Solar PIR Utility Light outside and postion the solar panel facing south. After dark the Solar PIR Utility light will light up as soon as it detects motion.
Using our 15-LED Solar PIR Light as a Solar Shed Light:
Install your light inside your shed and postion the solar panel outside (usually on top of your shed). When you enter your shed the PIR Utility Light will light up automatically and turn off again 25 seconds after you leave.
Frequently Asked Questions
Hi, re the length of time the light stays on. Do you have any other similar products that you can vary the length of time the light is on?
By Berni on Mar 3, 2015
Our other Solar Security Lights offer the option to change the length of time the light stays on for. These tend to be a lot more powerful than the Evo 15.
my Evo15 solar PIR Utility light turns itself off after 8 sec how do I make it longer
By andi on Jan 7, 2015
You cannot change the length of time this light is on. The light will, however, stay on all the time it is detecting movement.
I'm in a rented property with a garage that I use for storage. It has a metal "lazyman" metal door. I go into the garage in the evenings for short periods of time & wonder if this light will be okay? I need to mount the light on rear wall of garage. The garage is closed all day so not sure if the sensor will know if its day or night so not sure if this light ideal?If not can you recommend a cheaper equivelant? Thanks Barry
By Barry Duplock on Jan 4, 2015
This would be suitable. The sensor for day and night is in the solar panel. The light will not activate if there is sun-light (or alternative light like a street-lamp) shining on the solar panel.
