Solar Motion Sensor light
 
So I would like to add a Solar Motion Sensor light to my backyard. I dont have the budget or know how to have one hard wired so I though solar powered would be a way to go. Any recommendations? I see HD sells a couple models.

solar powered lights are pretty weak and not that reliable. you might be better off saving your money for a rainy day.

I've seen some very good solar powered floods up here, used by businesses to iluminate signs. They've got a separate solar panel and a battery pack, and wires led to a pair of floods. You wouldn't know they were solar if you didn't see the panel. They're quite brite. Unfortunately I don't know what they're called/where to get them.

The little solar landscape lights that stick in the ground on the other hand suck. Not at all worth the $20.

yeah, those were the ones i was talkin about, the 20 dollar ones from the deopt suck. the ones you've got sound pretty cool. how much do they go for?
