I just picked one up at lowes. Not solar, takes a few c batteries. Works well I think it was 20.

I installed these on both sides of our house last year. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Defiant-1...6-WH/205076423

They pick up our small dog when she goes outside and the LED light is very bright.

I just picked up a 6 pack of Mr. Beams spot lights. They came yesterday and I played around with them last night. Very impressed with the brightness of a battery operated spot light. Best part is they are networked, so you can add up to 50 lights per network.

Anyone got any of these on, or in motion range of a floating dock? Can you turn down the sensitivity? I would love to put a couple of these on the dock and shining on the boat when it is on the lift with it lowered, but wouldn't want them constantly coming on from minor movement of the dock from wind.

X2 on the Defiant lights from Home Depot. I have two of the LED ones and they have held up quite well so far. Very bright LED's (1600+ lumens) and they have adjustable light heads and sensors.

110. Sorry, I missed the part this morning about you wanting solar.

Amazon has a bunch of goofy brands with hundreds/thousands of excellent reviews. I bought some small ones that I stuck on the I-beams for my lift thinking that they'd last a month or two at best... 2 years later still lights up bright when you walk under them.
