solar walkway lightAfter searching for the perfect solar light for our entrance way, I finally found what I was looking for at Hammacher Schlemmer. The Best Solar Walkway Light from Hammacher Schlemmer is just what we needed, and we have been very impressed with the performance of this solar light.

The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute has named this solar walkway light the best in the category, and this is a distinction I can agree with. Not only does this solar light emit a pleasant white solar light, but it also has the largest solar panel that I have seen in solar walkway lights.

The Best Solar Walkway Light is tall, sturdy and gives ample light after dark. It charges throughout the day, and it can either go on automatically once darkness sets, or you can turn it on and off manually. What is especially impressive about the Best Solar Walkway Light from Hammacher Schlemmer is that it will charge even on a cloudy day.

I was concerned about how the Best Solar Walkway Light would react to rain, but it has passed the test with flying colors, and it still works great.  The ground stake is also very solid, and it ensures that the solar light does not tip over despite windy South Florida weather.

Thanks to this excellent solar pathway light, we now have a way to light up our entrance path without having to worry about the extra cost on our monthly electricity bill. While the Best Solar Walkway Light provides a great light source at nighttime, it does not light up as well as our regular electricity powered backyard light.

The Best Solar Walkway Light works thanks to two solar powered rechargeable batteries, which will need to be replaced after a couple of years. Taking apart the solar light to change the batteries is easy, and the only tool you need is a small screwdriver.
