The Story

Frosted orbs soak up the sun to provide hours of solar-powered night lighting. Chic globes have a flat base to sit tableside and removable webbed straps for hanging. In order for lights to fully recharge, make sure they are exposed to sunlight throughout the day. Lights turn on from inside the lamp. To turn on lights, hold bottom half of globe and twist top half counter-clockwise, pull up on top to access on/off switch

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not turn on. First globe light didn't work because I couldn't get the two halves to turn. Brought it back to Crate & Barrel and they gave me a new one. The two halves do turn counterclockwise but does not work even after sitting in the sun all day. What is this mysterious "on-off switch"? How do you access it? Help! More specific information would make this product a lot less frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Solar LIghting Ever! I purchased 2 large and 3 small lights over a year ago. I used fishing line to hang them from my deck beam. After using them last summer and this summer (I took them down for the winter), they all still light up giving a nice soft glow creating a great ambiance on the deck. It would be great is Crate and Barrel had more specific instruction on use. I did not take the batteries out when not in use, as mentioned by another reviewer, but that is a good idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality Bought 4 of these lights a month ago and the quality is really bad. Some nights only a couple of the lights come on and other nights none of them come on. Sometimes when you touch them they'll come back on randomly. Definitely not worth the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price These work as advertised. What would make them more fun, is if they changed colors. I actually thought they were a little too bright for where I wanted them. So, I opened them up and applied some tempura paint inside the tube running down the middle. Green in one and blue in the other (I'd ordered two). Now one gives a nice soft green glow and the other a blue glow. They stay on a long time into the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I got about a dozen of them last year. They are simple to operate (it doesn't take a science degree to turn them on! Once!). Had them outside for a whole year and no problem! The only issue that I have with them is that I have to dust them after the winter! Shocker...! About to buy another dozen as they do look great in my trees!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lights! I bought the small and large - neither disappoint. I hang them from my retractable SunSetter awning and from the bimini top of our boat. Used them all last summer with zero issues. Plan to purchase a few more for this summer...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea I bought this globe thinking it would looks good on my balcony outside, but it seems like when it charges during the day, the light doesn't glow that bright inside the bulb. I had to shake it a few times for it to turn on properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO instructions for use included. It was only by reading other 'reviews' that I was able to find any clue as to how to turn the light on. Crate and Barrel could address this problem by attaching instructions since this deficient has been pointed out in previous reviews. Instructions are not even available on the store's website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Resolve I am not purchasing any more solar products. Yes, I know how to replace the batteries, turn the light "on", provide ample sunlight -- no matter, after 4-6 weeks they simply cannot and will not work. Not. Too bad, as the option of lighting without wiring is certainly a plus.My remaining light is a cheap-o from a discount store, going strong.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 3 out of 3 no longer work. I am so disappointed in these lights. Love the look for sure, but that's where it stops. First, my large globe refuses to open for the most part, making turning it on and off a bit of a challenge. Second, after about 2 months of owning them (and using minimally, I actually bought them for camping) - none of them seem to work anymore. I've left them out in full sun for days on end, and when I turn them on at night, even after a few days of 'charging', they only stay on for 15 minutes, if that. I would love them, if they worked. Too late to return them, as I didn't keep tags or receipts since they worked consistently when I first purchased them. - I'm so bummed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lighting I agree with some of the other reviews about the hard to open factor and figuring out the on/off switch thing...but they seem sturdy and I feel like they will hold up, even in a rainy climate like Seattle...I got a set of 4 of the small ones and one big globe for mothers day...I actually almost returned them as well because I thought they weren't working...some would come on and others would not...I figured out that all of them need to be turned to "on" on the inside switch...but they also need to charge up in the sun for at least 6 hours before they omit a long lasting light. If fully charged, tho, they give off a decently brightly lit light that really does illuminate a space. They also last for a while after dark--they were still glowing bright well after midnight when they were charged up on a sunny day. I would definitely recommend them and will probably buy another set for my front yard as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from turn on the switch...is it a secret? Thank goodness for the kindness of previous reviewer who wrote about the need to open the globe (not easy) and turn the switch to "on".Nothing in the little attached "flag" gives one any directions or even a hint that the solar lights need to be turned on. I was about to return them when I went to the crate and barrel website and read the reviews.Even the product description online says nothing about this switch. what's up, crate and barrel?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went back to buy more Thanks to the reviewers who mentioned needing to open them up and flip the switch to "on." Design and brightness are superior to many solar lights out there. i bought 4 of these yesterday. Was so happy with them that I went back and bought 5 more today. Like another reviewer, I'm hoping leaving them turned on won't shorten the lifespan too much. Only downfall of these lights so far is the lack of instructions that accompany them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Night sensor? I had the same problem as the reviewer above. I hung them high up in a tree, and after they didn't come on for two nights, I crawled back up into the tree and discovered that I had to open them to turn them on.Now my question is, did they burn out overnight, or do they come on at dusk and go off at daylight? I want to order more, but obviously I can't climb that tree every day to turn them off and on, so I need to know if they conserve their own energy in the daylight.I'd give them 5 stars if I knew they were turning off in the daytime and back on at night.These are great, but the product description could be a lot more thorough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light Had to figure out how to turn the ball light on by turning the two haves of the ball open, then turning the switch on the inside top half on.
