Solar Lanterns
A few twinkly lights can do wonders in the garden. But can you really be bothered running wires under the lawn or lighting dozens of candles? We can't, so we've been looking for alternative ways to add a touch of glimmer-glamour to our evening soirees. And after much testing we've found the perfect solution: Solar Lanterns.

Solar Lanterns

Simply hang them from anywhere

These charming little LED garden lights soak up the sun's rays in order to give off an enchanting glow when dusk falls. No cables or candles required. With their concertina-style nylon shades and automatic dusk sensors, Solar Lanterns are the hassle-free way to illuminate night time proceedings. Simply hang them from the nearest branch or parasol and wait for darkness to descend.

Solar Lanterns

White lanterns contain colour changing LEDS

Each pack contains three red lanterns and three white ones. But here's the clever bit: the white lanterns contain colour changing LEDS that gently cycle through a kaleidoscope of entrancing colours. Combined with the constant reds, the effect is truly magical. Buy a few packs and even the cruddiest outdoor space will look like some fantasy grotto.

You can forget about clambering around in the wet when the great British summer comes a-calling because Solar Lanterns are weatherproof. What's more these miraculous lights are eco-friendly so you won't have to un-invite tree-huggers next time you have a barbecue.

Looking at their puny price tag we can think of no good reason why you wouldn't want to invest immediately in a set of Solar Lanterns (unless you haven't got a garden, a patio or even a windowsill, in which case you probably stopped reading about four paragraphs ago). In fact along with a few beers, a good barbecue and a warm summer breeze, Solar Lanterns are destined to become this year's garden must-haves.

On one hand these are brilliant. They took a while to charge properly but we now have two in the garden and one in the conservatory. They come on automatically each evening and really add to the atmosphere. The colour changing lanterns are brilliant and it's a shame they don't let you just order a whole set of these! Still the red ones are nice. The only problem is that of 6 lanterns, only 3 actually work. I read some of the other reviews warning of some dodgy lanterns and thought I'd take a risk. Sadly the QC of the manufacturer doesn't seem to catch a large number of faulty lanterns / solar panels. Would recommend that this is improved upon as they're great products otherwise.

Firebox says: Hi Daniel, please get in touch on info@firebox.com and we will send you over the returns details.
Immediate response from Firebox re: weather resistance of lanterns (basically, give them a try outside and if there's a problem Firebox will sort it) - have never experienced such amazing customer service! Thank you Firebox. Visited friend this weekend and saw the lanterns in situ in her conservatory where they twinkle very happily! Despite assurances she's decided to keep them indoors for now (gale force winds forecast for today!).

I bought some of these 2 years ago and I've just got them out to hang round the gazebo for the 3rd summer! I've left them out in the rain and wind for months at a time, they still work! Have had to make some repairs to them, the tops aren't as robust as they would seem! Great product and when these ones finally give up the ghost, I'll be buying some more! :0).

Firebox says: Great to hear Louisa!
Bought these as a birthday present for a friend. Disappointed to learn that although in the product description it says "You can forget about clambering around in the wet when the great British summer comes a-calling because Solar Lanterns are weatherproof" (one of the deciding factors in buying them), according to my friend, in the instructions that came with the lanterns it says to keep them out of rain and strong wind - not a lot of use in a British summer then!
M.Casey, Cumbria, UK - 10th May 2011
Firebox says: Sorry to hear about your disappointment. According to our supplier this really refers to serious storm weather, and relates more to potential damage if they fall or get hit against something. By all means get in touch via info@firebox.com and we can help resolve this for you.
Do they work with the lights on ?
Mitch, England - 27th February 2011
Firebox says: They need direct sunlight to charge Mitch.
I have now received a new set of batteries from Firebox as well as a complementary single lantern. Well done Firebox!

Firebox says: Thanks Bob. We aim to please!
