Takeaway: Low powered lights, ok for single shelves or a small work area.

You'll receive two light fixtures, a solar panel with two 6 ft cords, and three packs of mounting hardware. The light fixtures are pill shaped and measure 8.5" wide, though the light portion is only 6" long. The plastic housing is 2.5" H x 1.75" D. The pull cords measure 21" long and have a plastic ball on the end. Give the cord a tug to turn the light on or off. The cords coming off the solar panel plug into the top of each light but are not necessary to have plugged in once the batteries are fully charged. The solar panel can charge both lights simultaneously and measures 5" square.

Having the lights separate from the panel allows you to mount the panel outside the shed, which swivels so you can angle it towards the sun. Then the two lights can be placed somewhere inside the shed. The batteries in the lights are replaceable if they start to go bad. Each light uses three 600 mAh Ni-MH rechargeable AA batteries. The lights aren't terribly bright, something akin to a nightlight. For lighting large areas it doesn't do a great job because the light is too dim and diffuse. When used as an overhead light rather than a wall light you can see a little more detail. One thing I didn't like was that the diffuser casts a grid like shadow over everything, and I would have preferred a smooth diffuser instead. The lights are really not suitable for illuminating large areas and are best used for lighting a single shelf or small workspace at close range.
