Item Specifics

The URPOWER 8 LED Motion Sensor Solar Lights has positive and negative pole directions on the bottom of the LED, which is different than other lights on the market.  Unlike other solar lights with either 4 or 12 led, this one is designed with 8 led lights.   The 8 led lights will be brighter than 4 led, and last longer than 12 led. It is IP64 waterproof and heatproof, and suitable for most kinds of weather. This product will sense 10 feet out and has a 120 degree sensing angle.  It will turn on at night when motion is detected, and then turn off when motion stops.  The solar panel lifespan is 5 years.  The LED lifespan is 50,000 hours.  It will only take 6 to 8 hours to become fully charged. Keep in mind that 8 Led is for the 8 Lamp Beads in one light, not for 8 lights in one package.  This comes in a pack of 4. 

Preserves the Battery

With a motion sensor light, it will only go on when motion is detected.  Customers liked that the battery life is preserved by not having to stay on all the time.  Here is how a customer explained it, "I like that they are solar and motion sensor to preserve the battery. They worked perfect for my dog. As he ran by they turned right on! And shut off as soon as he came back in the house."

Perfect for When You Need to Walk Outside in the Dark

I always thought of motion detector lights as a way to scare away intruders.  But a lot of people commented, how these lights helped them to see in  the dark when they needed to walk outside.  Here is one of those comments, "My blind dog gets me up around 5 AM every morning to take care of her business. No I can take her out past the deck into our side yard without fear of stepping or tripping over something. As we pass the lights they come on and illuminate the area very well. I love the fact that they are waterproof and powered by the sun."

Small but Powerful

The lights were not as big as some customers thought, however they were bright enough for the job.  Here is a comment from a customer on the light size and output,"Ok, they looked bigger... When I opened the package I was thinking I got the wrong thing. There was no way these lights were going to be bright, they must not be on at dusk/off at dawn and for sure there was no way the motion detector ranger would be good. I was wrong. They are pretty bright. Little bluish, maybe like a 5K HID car headlight color, but powerful."

Good for Detecting Things

People liked that the lights helped make them aware of possible animals and people around at night. Here is one of the comments on this topic, "They detect movement so it is nice to know if there is a cat, possum, or heaven's forbid a person prowling around my yard in the middle of the night."

Common Questions

Here are some top questions that I found for people considering buying URPOWER 8 LED Motion Sensor Solar Lights.

  • chevron-circle-right
    Are these good for over a garage door on the outside?  How many should I use?  Yes, it is good for over garage doors.  Use one over each door.
  • chevron-circle-right
    Will they still charge when they are in the off mode, or do they have to be in the on mode to charge?  Once you put it in the on mode you can leave it alone.  It charges and the light turns on and off on its own.
  • chevron-circle-right
    Will it attract insects? Since they're only on for 20 seconds or so just when you activate the light as you're passing by, I don't believe the light is on long enough to attract insects.
