Brilliant lights Verified Purchase
I bought 2 cylinder shape lights for my gazebo in the hope it may give a little extra light. They are fantastic lights and really give a lovely ambiance. They are easy to look after and a great size too. I charged them both once, since then just popped them in the garden in the direct sunlight a couple of times and they have worked perfectly for over 2 weeks without needing another USB charge. The warm white is my favourite but also love the multicoloured option too. Well packaged and speedy delivery. Fantastic investment, I will be buying more!

Cylinder solar lights Verified Purchase
The cylinder lights arrived quickly after ordering as it had said we needed to pre-order them. They make an excellent feature in our garden and although nobody has seen them in situ yet we are very impressed with them and look forward to showing them off.

Colour Changing Mood Lights

Shapelights bring atmosphere to any indoor or outdoor space. They can be set to gently cycle through red, green, blue, green, purple, pink and light blue or you can set them to stay on your favourite colour. Shapelights also offer a brighter white and warm white setting which are noticeably brighter than the colours.

Using Shapelights Indoors

Shapelights can be used inside as mood lights for living spaces or night lights for landings or children’s bedrooms. You can plug your Shapelight directly into a plug socket or charge it by USB and use it as a portable indoor light if there is no plug socket nearby. A full USB charge takes just a few hours and will provide 50 hours of illumination.

In Indoor Mode your Shapelight will operate much like a normal mains powered light. It will turn on when you switch it on and turn off when you switch it off. Unlike Outdoor Mode, Shapelights will work in lit conditions in Indoor Mode and there is no timer to turn them off automatically after 7 hours.

Using Shapelights Outdoors

Shapelights are perfect for adding atmosphere to outdoor spaces. The base inside Shapelights contains a hidden solar panel which charges up from the sun through the shape shell. Shapelights are also USB chargeable which is perfect if you don't have a good solar charging location, or as a backup during dull weather spells. A full USB charge takes just a few hours and will provide 7 nights of illumination without any help form the sun.

In Outdoor Mode your Shapelight will turn on automatically after dark and turn off 7 hours later which conserves charge for subsequent evenings.

Solar Performance

Shapelights have been designed to work year round in the UK using solar power alone, but they can also be fully charged using the supplied USB lead in just a few hours. USB charging is not necessary if variable illumination times in winter are acceptable, but USB charging every couple of weeks will keep your Shapelight working for the full 7 hours every night whatever the weather.

Shapelights will work for 7 nights from a full USB charge without any help from the sun so a reasonably well-positioned Shapelight will only need USB charging every 10-14 days in winter and only occasional USB charging during spring and autumn. USB charging should not be necessary at all during summer.

Please note that the bright white and bright warm white colours use more power than the standard 8 colours so runtimes in these two colour modes will be reduced.


Shapelights have a waterproofing rating of IP67 so they can be used outside year-round where they will withstand everything the British weather can throw at them. The IP67 rating means you can use Shapelights in any room in your house including bathrooms.

Easily Replaceable Lithium Ion Battery

These high powered state-of-the-art batteries will offer several years of hassle free use and can be replaced quickly and easily at any point in the future.


Shapelights are made from an extremely tough PE plastic and are strong enough to be used as illuminated furniture pieces. The Shapelight Cube and Cylinder can both easily double up as a small table or seat for children or light adults.

Frequently Asked Questions

Would like to mount the cylinder lamp on top of a garden wall, can I screw the base plate to make a secure mounting? Thankyou
By John Warren on Sep 27, 2020

You could but it would make it difficult to unscrew to take down to re-charge via USB when needed.

I have a redundant full-size, 9 foot-high, maritime navigational sea buoy in my front garden (as one does . . .). Unfortunately the beacon light atop its pinnacle got broken. I am interested in using your cylindrical shapelight as a replacement. But I would prefer to house it inside a slightly larger protective clear glass (or maybe plastic) outer cylinder fitting over the shapelight. My question is, will your cylindrical shapelight still be able to function from solar rays if it is inside a slightly larger clear glass (or maybe plastic) protective covering (which I think will probably be about 3 or 4mm thick)? Incidentally, you may be interested to know I live on the coast and that my 'landlubber' sea buoy is positioned where it overlooks a busy shipping route, but the navigational authorities with whom I've checked say I can have the buoy's green light lit up - but it must not be flashing (in case some dopey sea captain gets confused by it in the dark and runs his ship aground!). Look forward to getting your advice.

I wouldn't recommend the Cylinder for this function or being encased in anything.
