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.

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

The ordering and pickup at our local location was in a timely manner, they were courteous and helpful. When I got it home, putting it together was easy and simple and directions were good. I put the lamp on the side of my driveway as an accent light as it does not have a really bright glow. I choose to add dirt etc. to the base to plant flowers, the base is 2 parts that are attached by twisting and turning into a series of holes. This proved to be a challenge because as I filled w dirt it kept moving and coming apart. I would reccomend securing the 2 parts w duct tape before putting anything in the base. Other than that, all is well and received many compliments.

    I brought this lamp a year ago and it still looks nice in my yard. I filled the base with rocks and it endured the winter weather. I really love it.

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

    we now own three. The picture shown does not include the optional planter that is included. My only complaint about this item is that the planter pot is in two pieces and you have to be very careful when you put it together. It is really only stabilized when it is planted in the gound with about 3-4 inches of the pot showing above the ground. It really looks pretty when planted. The lights do not give off a lot of light at night but I have placed them near seating areas on our patio. They give off enough light so that I don't have to turn on the electricity when we want to sit out alone. We do, however, use our main light when we have guests. We also paid less at ACE than we did at the other retailer when we purchased our first one. We ordered 2 from ACE. If the planter base was one piece I would have rated this item 5 stars. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase.

      This item looks great and was easy to install. we just put river rocks in the planter. We did however fill the planter entirely with river rocks to insure it was as stable as possible so there's no room left in our planter for plants (which is fine with me). It's been through a couple storms but nothing too windy so I'm not sure how it will stand up to winds yet. As long as it doesn't fall over it looks like it will hold up quite a while and it puts off a good amount of light for several hours per evening, into the morning hours.

          I love it so much I bought a second one. The first one after a year works great and provides enough lighting to our backyard. Battery life is more than expected and is recharged without any problem. I think is a great value for the price!

                        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.

                                  It seems that one of the LED lamps is not as bright as the other. I changed batteries but am wondering if some of the bulbs are bad. Any suggestions?

                                      We put two in the backyard, one in each corner near the fence. It adds a distinctive and beautiful look.

                                      I would not separate the base planter for better stability.

                                        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.
