    Beautiful, easy set up, no wiring and you don't have to fasten to cement. Just pull bucket up to it's highest level then fill with attractive gravel like we did. Wind doesn't move it. We live in a windy place out in open and the weight of the gravel holds it in it's place. The electrical ones you have to fasten to concrete. Great for lighting our walkway. Highly recommend.

    The plastic planter base is very thin, and has an upper section connected to a lower section through small latches. My latches were broken easily, and soils falled off since two parts were separated. I had to drill holes and used wires to tie them together. They should make the top of lower section outside, rather inside to fix the problem.

    The bottom of the aluminum lamp post was instructed to cover with gravels and then soils outside. But soils will follow water to build up around the post later, day after day. Continuous moisture will deteriorate it quickly. The more you water the plants the quicker the post fails.

    The lights are dim. They do not have enough power to shine more than 6 ft down to the ground. They need to improve the reflection on the head lamps to make its output brighter. The black plastic should be avoided since it absorbs light. Inside the head lamp, top and bottom need shining materials to bounce back and forth more light.

    The hangers are useless since the lamps need full sun to charge the batteries while the plants need shade.

    In short, the lamp is good for decoration, but not practical.

              This is a great accessory to your front yard or deck. It is low/no maintenance and with the planter base is a real eye catcher.

                  The BW and I bought this as a little anniversary treat for ourselves and to replace a similar but smaller item that got trashed in an accident a couple of years back.

                  The price was right and the free "ship to store" worked out well. It only took two or three days to arrive and the packaged item was not too big or heavy to get in or out of a decent size car trunk. Assembly was pretty easy, took maybe 30 minutes [and I'm no handyman] and required just some basic screw drivers and wrenches. [The screwing on of the lanterns to the crossbar was the only thing that needed an extra set of hands.]

                  I was going to mount it to the cement block base of the one we lost and that would have worked but we preferred a different location so I used the planter base supplied. The base comes in two sections that nest and attach with tabs and groves that seem a bit flimsy and don't lock too solidly but it seems to hold up okay.

                  It stands about 7' high and seems impressive [at least in comparison to the 5 footer it replaces]. After letting the batteries charge in the sun for a day or so I had to get out the ladder to go up and unscrew the tops of the lamps to switch them on. I thought that a little inconvenient but it's pretty much a one time thing.

                  I put about 25 lbs of river rock in the base [as recommended] and placed it on an 18' round paver for level and steadiness. It's been up and operating about two weeks now and it held up to a very windy rain storm the other day with no hint of instability.

                  The piece looks great in the little garden to the left of our porch. I'm sure it will look better once we add flowers in the base and hanging plants. [The chains and baskets for the hanging plants are not included by the way and the crossbar for hanging can be left off if you prefer the sleeker look.] It gives off a good amount of light and illuminates the porch stairs and entrance fairly well from its position about 10 feet away.

                  All in all an agreeable purchase.

                      The locking mechanism for the upper and lower sections of the planter is a very poor design. The tabs are flimsy and easy to break. I doubt that any side pressure when filled will be tolerated. Excellent product if mounting in concrete.

                          This is as near to a perfect product as I have seen. It was very easy to put together with clear directions and quality parts that fit. I filled the base with gravel, a layer of soil, and some plants; added two hanging baskets and, honestly, it looks like it cost two or three times as much. The lights are surprisingly bright and last for hours. Highly recommended.

                                  Comments about ACE TRADING - WF YINGLONG Sunergy Solar Lamp Post with Planter Base (50400356):

                                  Beautiful, easy set up, no wiring and you don't have to fasten to cement. Just pull bucket up to it's highest level then fill with attractive gravel like we did. Wind doesn't move it. We live in a windy place out in open and the weight of the gravel holds it in it's place. The electrical ones you have to fasten to concrete. Great for lighting our walkway. Highly recommend.
