The XMCOSY+ Solar Spot Lights are built like a typical in-ground light with a main pole/shaft, an attachable/removable stake, and the light and solar panel on top. What makes them different are the LEDs that shine through the clear section in the middle of the main pole/shaft. Also, the spotlight and solar panels are both adjustable. The entire light is made of plastic/ABS.
Installing the XMCOSY+ Solar Spot Lights is very easy. Once you put them together, you can either mount them on a wall or fence, etc. or stake them into the ground. Then you select the lighting mode via the mode button located underneath the solar panel:
These XMCOSY+ Solar Spot Lights just have to be assembled, mounted on a wall or post, or staked in the ground. and then left on the sun to charge.
According to XMCOSY, these spotlights offer 3 working modes of brightness, and how long they last varies depending on the mode you choose:
>> Auto mode: 6-12H (Dusk to dawn)
>> Low mode:10-12H
>> High mode:6-8H
I use mine in the smart IC auto mode. Here is what they look like now that they are set up where I want them:
What I like
- These lights are nicely designed
- The spotlight puts out a very nice warm white light
- Very stylish
- The adjustable spotlight head and solar panel
- The size of the solar panel.
- The option to change the length of the stake or to wall mount
- The operating modes
What I’d change
- Nothing so far
Over the past few years, I have reviewed several outdoor landscape solar lights, but I don’t recall being as excited and happy as I am with these XMCOSY+ Solar Spot Lights. I like the build quality, the design including the accent light in the middle of the pole, the size and adjustability of the solar panel and the spotlight, and the light it puts out. Love these!!
