Pulled the Erligpowht Outdoor, Warmoon Lawns, Yunlights Walkways and Hampton Bay Kit from the list due to unavailability. Poor reliability also led to the removal of the Sterno Home Paradise, which frequently breaks down and stops working within a few months of being installed.
After looking into the Zuckeo Gardens in detail, we noted that you’ll have to purchase the required transformer (if you don’t have one already) separately. We also discovered that a new version of the Urpower Spotlights are now available, so we updated the listing accordingly, indicating in the bullets that the latest models are not quite as bright as some people would prefer.
We placed several new items on the list, adding a mix of spotlight-style fixtures, pathway lights, and a set of solar-powered in-ground models. An advantage of the Hinkley 1536BZ is the diverse range of options it offers: three types of finishes and a variety of different wattage ratings. And while multicolored lights certainly aren’t for everyone, the Beau Jardin Garden is an ideal choice for anyone who wants to go above and beyond the standard hue; it alternates between red, green blue, yellow, pink, purple and white lighting.
We’ve also noted that the Goodsmann Equinox, Pinnacle Taurus and Moonrays 95557 all provide good energy efficiency.
