There's nothing we like better than firing the barbeque up cracking open a few cans and spending a glorious summer's day relaxing in the garden with a few friends. As drawn out as the days get you always seem to find yourself running out of sunlight far too quickly and then your party is doomed to spend the rest of the evening being blinded by the motion controlled security light (which is almost worth the blinding just to see people waving their arms around like muppets every time the light switches itself off). Exterior lighting can be a complicated affair and no one wants to have to stump for an electricians bill just to have some mood lighting in the garden. This is why the Solar Fairy Lights and the Solar Net are perfect for the summer. They produce as much light as mains powered Fairy lights but you won't have to plug them in anywhere - simply wrap around your favourite tree or garden chair and let them soak up the sun while you and your friends party until the sun goes down. Once night has fallen the lights will have enough juice to last 20 hours so unless you're living in Norway you should have enough to get you through to sunrise. There's even six lighting modes so you can alternate between a steady pulse fast flashing and always having the lights switched on. The lights are available in a 5 10 or 28 metre cable or as a Solar Net which can be hung on your garden wall or draped over garden furniture. The solar panel and control box are all fully weather resistant so you don't have to run around in a panic every time the sky turns that funny purple colour (let's be realistic - this is the UK and it WILL happen). There's no fidgety wiring so you can get them working straight out of the box and they even have different time modes so you can optimise them when the winter sunlight takes over. Let the sun add a little light to your garden 24 hours a day. Features: Solar Powered white fairy lights for brightening up your garden The lights charge all day and then automatically pop on when the sun goes down Spike and Clip fixings have been included to help you place the lights wherever you want Weather resistant Six lighting modes to choose from including: Alternating Chasing Fast Flash Slow Flash Fast Flicker and always on Available in white only Suitable for ages 14 years + Available in 5m (50 LEDs) 10m (100 LEDs) or 28m (280 LEDs) Also available as a Solar Net: 260 x 130 cm (200 LED's) Please note: Even though the lights can run for 20 hours they are limited to 8 hours at a time. The lights will go off after 8 hours operation and the power button will need to be pressed to get a further 8 hours from them.
