Well, yes and no. If you are expecting a lot of light don't get your hopes up. The shed solar lights are great if you need to make sure you aren't going to trip on something. However, don't expect to find the oil can sitting on the third shelf, at least not for a few minutes until your eyes have adjusted to the dark. We've considered the solar lights and they simply don't do a good job. A battery operated LED light that would last years gives off more light. The pictures we've found online showing the solar lights are very optimistic and a little deceiving in our opinion. There you have it. Feel free to comment if you own one and feel otherwise.
