Solar-Powered String Lights: Love or Leave?

If you want to pimp the outside of your house with a ton of Christmas lights but don't want to spend a small fortune on the electricity bill, consider Solar-Powered Lights.

When Popgadget compiled their Christmas gift guide, she added these versatile lights to the list. With 102 bright LED bulbs on each string, these solar-powered lights can be used on trees or on your front porch. You don't even need to put them on timers since they have day and night sensors that will turn them on automatically. On a full charge, the lights will last up to eight hours. Priced at $75 each.

What do you think? Would you ever go solar with your Christmas lights?

I own a couple of sets. The solar string lights are convenient for locations where you have no outside outlet. The also automatically turn the themselves off & on via the light conditions. Two market problems are that some brands make them with batteries you can not replace. You need to be able to change the included battery to get good light when there's not a lot of sun, like in the winter. Second, the prices ( unless you can find a rare rare deal) do NOT justify what you supposedly save by not using standard UL listed (plug in) types. $25-30 for 50 bulbs on a 26' string- is outrageous! and they get even higher depending on the retailer($100 for 100 bulbs- "everything under the sun." They are ripping people off. I will wait until the price reflects the value.

Love this idea. And if you don't have a plug outside (me!) you can have outside lights.

Wonderful idea for everyone. Electric bills are soooo high after the holiday. This would allow people to pay more back on their average bills, rather than placing sooo much more money towards the electric bill in January alone.

not only a great idea to help reduce electricity costs and use - but not having to go outside to plug in the lights every day would be great!

I love these! They would have come in so handy this year when I was taking all the lights down and then putting them up just to get the outlet and plug to match up.

Considering I just got my electricity bill and it was $80 more than normal, I say LOVE it :-)

What a fantastic idea. Having just a few days ago fought with an extension cord to plug in our lights; I would have loved to have these.

i think that they are perfect for the 'times'. when people should be aware of the energy they use - getting solar powered christmas lights is a great way to go

I think they are fantastic! Many people do not have the proper outdoor electricity outlets to decorate for the holidays, this solves the extension cord/outlet dilemma.
