I love to have my stairs and entrances well lit so that the dogs and visitors at night are able to see their way up the stairs. It's also a pleasant feeling when you've been out for the evening, to come home and see a light shining. This lantern light can be mounted on a wall or the side of a post. I chose to use the enclosed stake to place it in my flower pot by the back door. What I like the most about solar lights is the bugs aren't attracted to the LED light and I don't get a mess of insect bodies laying around in the morning. This unit is made entirely of plastic so that it won't rust. The solar panels are on the top of the unit and I was able to see it light after about five hours of direct sunlight. They recommend to let it charge for 12 hours to get a full night's lighting. I just hope it keeps the bear away!
