SOLIGHT Design makes several styles and models of solar powered LED lights. The company sent me two models to review, the Helix and the Twilight. Both are compact, lightweight, and bright and the best thing is they never need batteries.

Pros

  • No need to take extra batteries
  • Lightweight
  • Reasonably priced
  • Efficiently packaged
  • Bright LED technology
  • Solar powered

Cons

  • 8-hour charge time
  • Handle seems a bit flimsy

These solar powered lights require minimal space because they fold flat for storage. When fully charged they can give up to 12 hours of continuous light using efficient LED technology, and are bright enough to comfortably read by. 

Please check out my video review of these two models...the Solar Hellix and the Twilight.

Experience

I've used this and other brands of solar lights (Luci) and find they perform very well in all outdoor conditions, although I have not used them in extreme cold conditions.

Source: tested or reviewed it for the manufacturer (kept it)

Disclosure: The author of this review received a sample of the product from the brand or its representative in exchange for a review.
