A great unique solar light (LED candle) that adds character to your yard

I recently bought a pair of these Pagoda Solar lights for my yard, and have been really happy with them so far. There was no installation or setup required, so all you have to do is put them out in your yard where there is enough sunlight to charge the internal batteries. There are two small solar panels on top of two opposite sides of the "Pagoda roof" which absorb sunlight during the day. At night, the candle (which is made up of amber colored LED lights) flickers amazingly like a real candle. This affect combined with the styling of the Pagoda adds some real character to the yard. I've also noticed that it stays lit all night up until dawn. Although it looks heavy, because it is actually made of resin (and not real stone), it's actually pretty light.

Pros:
-Good build quality
-LED candle flickers like a real candle and stays lit all night
-Easy to use (no building, setup, or installation required)
-Charges by sunlight on two solar panels facing different directions
-Realistic "Stone Texture" but made of lightweight Resin


Cons:
-Internal "Nicad" AA batteries could be better quality and will eventually need to be replaced.

-More expensive than most Solar Lights

-Light is quite dim, so this is only for decorative purposes.


Conclusion:
This Solar Pagoda flickering candle light seems to be built well and is uniquely styled to add character to any yard. The flickering LED simulates a real candle amazingly well and the two solar panels on the side of the Pagoda roof seem to do an excellent job charging the internal AA batteries inside. I've been very happy with this product and would recommend it for anyone who's looking for a nice & unique decorative solar light.

It looks like an miniature Asian temple! My dad's always looking for unusual knick knacks for his garden, so he would love this. Thanks, El Duke! :)
