Astron Solar Floodlight Verified Purchase
Bought this primarily to provide illumination onto a patio during summer evenings. Tricky to get the nuts and washers onto the very small bolts to secure the angle brackets to the frame of the solar panel. Otherwise straightforward installation. Not only is there an on/off switch on the base of the light, but once "on", all further switching can be done from the remote control. Light output is perfectly adequate for low intensity illumination of the patio area. Hopefully a product of this quality should provide years of service.

All lit up Verified Purchase
This is a solid piece of equipment and giving off an excellent amount of light. I bought it to light the area around my stables and it is certainly up to the job. This is the second solar light I have purchased and I am very happy with both purchases AND the quality of service.

Question:
I bought one of these but the remote control stopped working and now I've lost it. Where can I get a new remote control? Thanks.
By Mike on Oct 25, 2016
Answer:

We haven't stocked this light for some time and don't have any spare remotes. The best thing I can suggest is to try replacing the battery in the remote you have there.
