M17998 - Westinghouse 2 Piece Solar Powered Crackle Glass Sphere
These are really pretty and I love them when they work correctly. I could not figure out why some of these would not stay lit as long as the others. I then discovered that they were coming on during the day and running the batteries down before dark. I am assuming they were wired incorrectly. I could not fix them and had to throw away the ones that did not work correctly. I am bummed because they the ones that did work correctly are really pretty.
Very Nice/ Different
These are very nice. I wish QVC/ Westinghouse would offere again. We would purchase more.
These lights are pretty to look at because of the crackle glass, but only 2 of the 6 that I ordered actually light up at night.
I purchased 5 sets. the first night two of them stopped working, I only had them in the ground about a month. Now three more stopped working. I am totally disappointed in Westing house for providing a poorly tested product.
Such a shame
I, too, bought three sets only to be disappointed. They do not stay lit for more than 2-3 hours. Such a shame. I gave them to my husband as a gift and now I'm kinda embarassed.
I purcased two sets of these last year. They ARE very limited when on.......maybe 2 - 3 hours. Well now all but one is working......barely. It's a great concept.........if it worked. Something has to be done to rectify this problem
I got 3 sets of these summer of 2008, two of the lights would only flicker off and on then finally go out.( Were placed in Direct sunlight too ) I bought new solar batteries but still did not help. QVC was good enough to send me two re-placements...And One of them did not work....Something is definately wrong with these type solar lights, Perhaps because the solar pannel is enclosed inside the sphere.....Too many others are having the same luck...The ones that DID work gave off a pretty glow.....But would not buy any like these ever again.
I purchased these knowing that they are shorter than most lights. I was replacing lights in a couple of wooden statues that I had. The lights just set into a pre-cut hole in the wood. These are unique because there is no exterior solar panel, it is inside of the sphere. The battery replacement is also easy and unique to these lights. These are one of the better designed lights that I have seen. The colors are beautiful and the crackled glass just adds to the beauty. I love solar lights, my backyard looks like a fairy garden all lit up at night. I watch the solar lights carefully when I purchase them. If they don't work properly, I return them right away. They NEVER get better. Check the measurements to be sure these are what you want.
I like the look
Last year I purchased 3 sets of the Westinghouse Crackle Glass Spheres, and I loved them, but 1 wouldn't hold a charge. I changed the battery but it still wouldn't light. I returned the set and got a refund because they were out of stock. The other lights are still working all thru the winter in NEPA they kept their lights glowing. I've ordered another 3 sets this year and I hope they all work properly and hold a charge. They do need to be in full sun to have a beautiful glow,I'm giving it a 2nd try..I do love the look...Try them QVC stands behind their merchandise.
not made to last!
Bought two sets of these lights, after 3 weeks only two of the
four are left - and I noticed this evening - the other two are
loved the ones that worked
Bought two sets. 3 out of 4 worked fine. one wouldn't hold a recharge so would only work for a day or two with new batteries. had to send two back to replace the one bad one. out of stock when returned. I DO Love the 2 left. Fun, stays lit all night. Even looks nice during the daytime.
I purchased several sets for myself last year, and have sent some on as gifts for friends. I put most of them away for the winter, but left 2 of them out as a test. Both are still firing up nicely at night (when we have sunlight during the day) and I couldn't be happier with them. I have noticed condensation in one that is placed in the ground, but it still works just fine- It is buried up to its neck in snow and is still running great. The other one I have at the back of our 2 acre property, and I have it on the color changing mode - I can see it as I come down the road as I approach our driveway. I am really enjoying these - sorry if others are not having the great light show that I am!!
