Bunker Hill Solar Security Light


I am naturally skeptical of solar powered products that come equipped with an on-board battery and solar panel. Typically the panels are not rated high enough for good performance and often the battery will begin to lose maximum charge within weeks. This light changed that thought pattern though. Manufactured by Bunker Hill Security and sold at Harbor Freight this solar powered security light automatically turns on when it sense the motion of someone driving near it or even walking under it. The bright 10 watt quartz lamp can be adjust to stay on as little as 5 seconds or as long as 2 minutes past the initial motion detection. Perfect for a spot with no electrical outlet the light can detect motion over a range of 180 degrees from up to 60 feet away. The on-board battery holds a full 8-hour charge and after the initial setup never seems to even dim. The product height is 8-1/4 in. with a width of 5 inches. It weighs just 2.8 pounds and has a 90-day warranty when purchased from Harbor Freight. Installation is ridiculously easy involving just a handful of screws and the cord from light to panel is a full 16 feet.
