If you have a path or a walkway that you need to illuminate, solar path lights can be a good option. They save energy, don't need to be connected to the mains and come in many attractive styles. Some path lights aren't very bright but if you need more powerful illumination you have plenty of products to choose from. Brighter lights tend to cost a little more but they can be worth it.

Alpan's stainless steel solar lights have a bright finish and an even brighter light. Ten times brighter than conventional solar lights, these can offer very good solution to the problem of adequate solar path lighting. At around £58 for six, they are reasonably priced compared to similar products. Their stainless steel finish makes them fairly durable and they come with warm white LEDs, which can be more inviting than cooler blue-tinted LED light.

Solar Deck/Path Light
Also by EarthTech, these spotlights boast 12 high intensity LEDs. With light projection up to fifty feet they are a serious contender in the brilliance stakes, although their £103 price tag makes them one of the more expensive products. The photovoltaic panel that powers the light is removable, so if you need to place the light in a shady area you can still install the panel somewhere with more available sunlight. The panel can be installed up to 20 feet away from the light fixture, offering considerable flexibility. The light stands 2 feet tall and offers high and low settings. On the higher setting this product is advertised as supplying eight hours of continuous light.
