Takeaway: For the size of this light, it really outputs a lot of light.

I tried this out in an upstairs hallway with no windows, at night, and it went from pitch black to me being able to see all the way down to the other end of the hall (about 30 ft). Of course, since the battery is solar powered, this wouldn't be a great application as it would never get charged! But hopefully that gives you a sense of the amount of light that gets output by this unit.

I wasn't a huge fan of the angle of the LED direction, since it points at your face when it's just above eye level. This makes the light uncomfortable to look directly at when it is on because it's so bright. This is worsened by the fact that the light doesn't have a diffuser, so it is just a bit too intense to look at. Basically you'll want to make sure the light is well overhead and to your back. If you're facing it at all, it's pretty blinding, which, defeats the purpose of having light (so you can see!).

The other features are solid. It recharges itself with the power of the sun, it has an ambient light sensor so it only comes on when it's dark, it has a motion detector that senses to about 10 ft, and a 30 second shutoff timer. Easy to setup, install and operate. If possible, position the solar panel to face south so that it can get the maximum amount of sunlight. If you're installing this in a shady spot or on the north side of your house, shed or garage, be aware that it may not get enough sunlight to fully charge its battery.
