Solar Powered 3-Lantern Lamppost with White & Amber LEDs
This is a beautiful lamp and planter, but when putting together, wind blew over and broke one of the lanterns. I was shipped another lamp but after putting the called for rocks in bottom, then dirt, and plants, the wind blew over and broke two of the lanterns. Subsequently, we moved the lantern to a corner on side of house that doesn't get that much wind, but wind blew over and broke the complete top. QVC referred me to the company who stated the costs for replacement parts which added up to almost the original price of the lamp. I can't recommend the lamp and don't understand how the customers who state they get all the wind and have no problems unless they cement the lamp to ground.
Renew when solar dies
I have had this lamp post about 4 years. It has been through snow, high winds and 2 hurricanes. The solar panel finally died. I took the lanterns off, disconnected the solar bulbs. I then put the outdoor 4 inch timer candles in the lanterns, put it back together. Voila! Even prettier than the solar lights! You only have to unscrew 2 screws each light to replace batteries. Also, spray screws with WD 40 .
We love our solar powered lampost... the updated version (white & amber LEDs) was a great upgrade.
The lamppost is just beautiful, my son , Cory put it together for me, and did a little extra work on the wiring situation, by tying ends together in knot to shorten the wires and prevent them from pulling out. It is lovely. Want another one!! Wish the base was heavier, for sure. but rocks and dirt will handle that problem. Sandy
This light is really beautiful . Ordered the black and it went together quickly(easy for me to say_my son put it together :) I was somewhat concerned about the pot but so far so good .We filled it with very small rock and ALOT of it. Small amount of soil and then SunpatientsOnly time will tell if the is light will prove to be as terrific as it seems to be but am keeping my fingers crossed that this won't end up an expensive mistake .
I bought one of these a few years back. Never did get all three lights working due to the way the wires were. The pot wouldn't stay together. Finally, the wind blew it over and one of the lights broke off. I've just received one of these in bronze as a gift....I'm so hoping it is better than the last one I had.
I received my lantern this week I purchased bronze because it matched my lights on my house. My husband put it together with just one complaint, It was difficult to get the lights put together because the wires are so long so you have to bunch them up making it difficult put the led bulb in. He did get it done regardless so other than that even he liked the lantern. I received several compliments on the lantern. It is top heavy but I weighed the base down with a few rocks then soil and beautiful pansies. It looks BEAUTIFUL!
P.S. my husband said he wouldn't mind if I purchased another one.
I purchased this for the end of my sidewallk the dark side of the house3 years ago. and I Love it, But when i had to replace the batterys it would not work and didnt all winter sprayed some electrical cleaner on conections and it is shinning again soooo happy . I am going to purchase 1 more for my Mom.YOU WOULD NOT BE DISSAPOINTED .!
THIS DESERVES 50 STARS.
I ORDERED THIS 4 YEARS AGO THIS MARCH BUT MINE HAS THE SECOND CENTER FLOWER BED. TONIGHT AT 10.11 P.M. IN MICHIGAN THE AMBER LIGHTS (ALL 3) WERE BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL. I HAVE YET TO CHANGE A BATTERY!!!!!!!!!! I PROBABLY JUST JINXED MYSELF. I HAVE MINE SITTING ON MY FRONT PATIO OF MY CONDO. I FILLED TO ABOUT 4 INCHES IN BOTTOM WITH WHITE "MARBLE" YOU GET FROM ANY HARDWARE STONE IN 25 LB BAGS. I GREW HERBS IN THE TOP AND GERBERA DAISIES IN THE BOTTOM LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR I'M PUTTING FORGET ME NOTS IN THE TOP AND THE PINK AND WHITE FLUFFY GRASSES IN THE BOTTOM. I'VE NEVER USED THE WHITE LIGHT BECAUSE I LIKE THE WARMTH OF THE AMBER BUT I"LL BET FOR THE 4th USING SILVER FOIL STAR GARLAND WRAPPED AROUND THE POST WITH THE WHITE LIGHTS AND RED, WHITE, AND BLUE DECORATIONS WILL BE STUPID STELLAR! EPHINANY! MY NEIGHBORS ALL WANT ONE BUT I WON'T TELL THEM WHERE TO GET IT. IT'S MY PERSONAL PIECE ALONE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. WE'VE HAD STRAIGHT LINE WINDS TO CONTEND WITH HERE EVERY SPRING. THE PLANTAR DOES NOT BUDGE BUT KEEP THAT IN MIND. YOU'LL WANT A PERMANENT PLACEMENT. LOVE AND ADORE MINE AS MY NEIGHBORS DO! LOL
The whole thing was a waste of money. The pot separates at the slightest movement and the lights stopped working after a month. I have used it as a planter for the past season but this spring it blew over and broke. Total waste of money. Too bad as the idea is so nice.
two person assembly--- definitely
wiring instructions hard to follow and hard to maneuver--wires are scary to pull- in that they are so small-to the --wire challenged general public-that is ---pulling the wires thru to the lamp--not so fun--because of the concern of over pulling---looks nice now that it is set up--hoping all solar process functions well after eight hour wait--would suggest more in depth instructions--thank you
Poorly made procuct. Product is made out of white metal which is very brittle and will breake when wind blows over even when product is heavly weighted down.
QVC should bring back their QUALITY CHECK department for every item;
Mr. Q BIRD.
I purchased two that are junk now.
Do Not Purchase.
