Solar Powered 3-Lantern Lamppost with White & Amber LEDs
Love this Product
I bought two of these lanterns and I very happy with them. I get lots of complements on them. I have one at the end of my driveway near my mailbox, I can see it as I'm driving up the road, let's me know where to turn. I will most likely by more.
A great lamp, But...
We had this lamp for one year, five months. We took it apart to see why it wasn't working, and under the solar panel was water that had some how gotten in and rotted the wires. There were no cracks or damage,that would allow water to enter. It's a very attractive lamp, we will miss it..
a good value
this light post in elegent to the eye and for light
I purchased this beautiful lamppost in February and in the beginning it did light up, not like I thought it would considering the amount of light we get in Florida, but it did light up. If I knew the light was so dim I would not have ordered. Now, her it is September, and my warranted expired in February and it does not work any longer. A big, heavy, worthless lamppost that does nothing. QVC gave me the number for the manufacturer but that number always rings busy. For me, on a fixed income, $154 plus $20 s/h was a lot of money to put out.
I am so disappointed that this can't be fixed. It is a worthless yard piece with no function. I have no one to haul it away, so here it sits, probably until I die.
I just love this item. It is so handsome! And works perfectly. I'm 67 and put it together in about 1/2 hour. The white light is really, really bright. I put broken up concrete blocks in the planter and topped it off with dirt and put in some plants. I intend to buy at least a couple more in the spring. Would love to line them up my driveway. It would be very dramatic. Don't hesitate on this one.
Goodnight!what a light
This light is bright outside,it really shines on our walkway,its not a overpowering blinding light,but glows over it if you caught what I mean.
Too bad I don;t have a picture to post to show you how glows but whats well.
Every night at dusk it turns on as it ought to and off the same at dawn.
Forgot one thing if you have this small lights from westinghouse ,it the wallway really shows up ,like a runway at the airport .
One of my best QVC purchases
I have had this lamppost for about 6 months or so and it is fab-u-lous. I was worried about it blowing over in our North Texas winds, so we put two bags of pea gravel in the base and then planted some vine in the top of the pot. So far, so good and we had 55 mile an hour winds just last week. It has survived very well through many storms. The light is very bright and really a wonderful addition to the back yard.
Solar Savings Plus Show Piece
I love this lamp so much I just bought another. It provides just enough light for arriving home late night using either white or amber light and it is a show piece! I am extremely pleased. I have one for the front and now I will have one for the back yard deck.
Got 3 of these 2 years ago and have enjoyed them so much. Hesitated because some reviewers had theirs blow over in the wind. We dug down about 1 inch and put the pots in the ground. We put some river rocks in the bottom, put dirt on top and planted flowers. They have been through several extremely severe storms with very high winds and they don't budge. I would definitely buy them again. They are gorgeous with flowers in the pots and they give off great light, We use the white lights most of the time to match our lights along the walkway but we changed them to amber at Halloween and they were lovely.
I love it!!!
This lamp post is great. My mom and I both work late and by the time we get home it is very dark out. The lights are very bright! We use the white setting to match other lights in our yard but the amber will look great in fall (especially for halloween). I love the fact that it is solar for two reasons: I absolutely hate leaving lights on all night and we didn't really have the money to call an electrician out to run wires. I read the reviews and was a little skeptical about this product. We were also worried that 3 lanterns would be too big for our house. We live in a little rancher and most people on the street just have a single lantern. I did not follow the directions for mounting at all. I absolutely did not want to use the planter and my mom and I don't really have to means to pour and drill concrete. So I flipped the planter upside down, and with a bit of coaxing was able to bolt the light onto the bottom of the planter. I still used the metal reinforcement triangle on the inside of the planter base so that the bolts don't tear through the plastic. I then buried the upside down planter entirely and covered about half of the base of the lamp. I planted three ornamental grasses around the base. After all was said and done, I realized that it was crooked. Earlier, while planting a tree, I had dug a metal rod up so I pushed the post back in place and secured it with the rod I found. Then I got river rocks and piled them around the base and spread them around the grasses. It is very stable now even though it is windy today. We'll see how it does once the dirt all settles. All in all it was easy to install (how poetic). I was intimidated at first by all the parts but it's very straight forward. Everyone is different though, my mom would probably start crying half way through assembly regardless of how easy it is. Make sure you knot the electrical connections because they like to come apart. I also read a suggestion that if the solar ever goes out just put timer candles in the casings. I'll keep that in mind since I hope this beautiful lamp lasts a long time (as in, I hope a family member doesn't accidentally run it down). It's not super sturdy but it isn't junk and it looks really nice. I kind of wish it was a bit more reinforced but you can't have everything especially at this price. I'm glad that the casings are thick glass not plastic. We're really excited about this lamp, and the neighbors have already shown up to compliment it. I really hope my buried planter idea works, but I suppose only time (and high winds) will tell.
Conflicted about this product
I ended up having to return this lamppost but that's not to say it's a terrible product. You don't need a degree in engineering or many tools to put it together, which I appreciated. It looks great. Unfortunately, the planter portion comes in two pieces that do not stay together very well. Even a light tap dismantle the planter, making it almost impossible to fill and plant. I purchased this post to replace one that I bought from QVC many years ago and I am sorry that this did not work out.
back for another one
Love this lamppost! Had it for about a month now and works great. Even on cloudy days, it still shines brightly and all night. The Amber and white lights are equally beautiful. So very easy to put together. We filled it with mulch (had 4 yds just delivered) so we thought we'd try. My husband buried the pot about half way and it's standing solid. My husband actually asked me to order another one and that's a first that he'd even care about something like a lamppost....lol
