Takeaway: For a light this size, it can output so much light! This brightness is rated at 100 lm.

I tested this unit in a pitch black hallway at night and was able to see down to the other end of the hall, about 30 ft. However, since it is solar powered, it should actually be used outdoors, but this should help give you a sense of the amount of light that it puts out.

A vast improvement over the previous version is that this light has a diffuser, since this softens the light without diminishing its brightness. I also like that the light is directed "down" instead of out. This means that you won't have to look directly into the LEDs when it's on, unless of course you are standing under it and look straight up. By positioning the light in this way, the light spreads and fills one area and doesn't put off a glare when you're facing it. The only drawback to this configuration is that the solar panel sits on top, so this means that you can't install this under an awning or overhang as this will block its solar panel's access to direct sunlight.

The features are very useful. The battery in it is solar powered, it detects ambient light and only comes on when it's dark out, the motion sensor detects up to 10 ft away, and it shuts off automatically after 30 seconds. It was very easy to setup, install and operate. Because the solar panel is flat on top of this light, you'll want it to be at the highest point on the south side of whatever you're attaching it to, otherwise cast shadows will limit the amount of light that hits the solar panel. If you install 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.
