This wiki has been updated 19 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Not only does an outdoor post light serve as a stylish addition to your home's exterior, but it can also act as a deterrent to unwanted visitors who’d prefer to approach your home under the cover of darkness. Available in both wired and energy-efficient, solar-powered options, these are ideal for adding a decorative touch to your property and can help keep your loved ones safe, too.

If you're searching for an outdoor post light, then you're either replacing one that's already been safely wired into the ground by an electrician, or you're hoping to acquire something brand new to install with wiring or without. You'll find a product to fit each of those scenarios on this list. We favored products powered by solar energy, as well as those that can take any standard A16 bulb, in addition to weather-resistant finishes, wet location ratings and tough construction. After that, it's a matter of aesthetic tastes, which is why we incorporated everything from the intricate (Etoplighting Lantern, PierSurplus Tall) and the nautical (Sea Gull Lighting Sebring, Acclaim 87BK Mariner) as well as contemporary choices (PLC Lighting Tusk Collection, Sunlite Neckless). The PierSurplus Tall took the top spot since it is easily assembled, energy efficient, and has added decorative capability due to its scrolled hanging bar.
