Great Verified Purchase
I have scrapped my 12 volt garden lighting in favour of these solar power lights. I have six and they are bright enough to light the whole garden in summer. I will see how the power saving tops behave in winter

Durability? Verified Purchase
I bought 8 of these posts for my back garden about four years ago. When they work, they're fine. They're just not durable, however. Each year I've had to replace at least two of the tops because they've failed. This year it was three - including one bought last year. Any savings I've made by using solar power have been completely wiped out by the costs of buying replacement tops every year. A poor quality product, I'm afraid.

Reply from SolarCentre:
Many thanks for your comments. One quick suggestion worth trying would be to replace the batteries. This may be a more cost effective way of getting you back up and running.

Power saving tops for Canterbury Verified Purchase
GREAT product with power saving. Lights stay on all night with the Spanish sun. CUSTOMER service spot on!!!. Only problem is they rust inside and need to be replaced often. But overall a happy bunny.

previously unknown Verified Purchase
Especially useful for posts in the parts of the garden that receive less light. They make a significant difference to duration. Worth the extra pennies for sure. Didn't know these existed and stumbled across the sole review at the time. Glad I did.

The Power Saving Top is a brilliant product and smart way to have lighting without wasting electricity. The service and customer care is perfect. Well done to the solar folks here.

I have two lights and was sceptical that the power saving top would make much difference , so I ordered one to compare. Amazingly, the light stays on all night, so I have now ordered a second top for the other light. Perfect !

Works fine. On the winter setting lamp stays on all night even on the longest nights, a little dimmer than on the summer setting but does what it says on the tin. I have just ordered another to replace the standard one on my other lamp.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question:
Hi, I have just purchased two power saving tops for my already purchased London lights. What is the process to charge these tops and what does the P and S setting on the switch do? Do they need to be left switched off for a few days in direct sunlight before switching on? There were no instructions in the package.
By Zoey Coates on Jun 11, 2015
Answer:
We recommend giving it a charge (3 to 5 days) before use but this is not required. It is mostly to give the battery a good recharge before draining it. The P and S settings are new. One will do the normal amount of power and the other is the powersaving setting, which works at less power and brightness but will go for longer.

Question:
Hi, I have a 50 cm globe garden light that just won't work even though I have replaced the battery . Would this item work inside a globe light ? If not have you any suggestions what I could replace the solar part with ?
By Catherine Staddon on Apr 16, 2015
Answer:
This would not work. The sun needs to get directly on to the solar panel and when the light is on it only projects downwards.

Question:
Will the standard Canterbury wall light come with these improved duration power saver tops as standard.

Answer:
This is not currently available but is something the directors are considering.
