I ordered three of these and loved them the first time we used them
I ordered three of these and loved them the first time we used them. Then second time one of them got water in it and it won't light up anymore. Then about a week later the second one got water in it and it won't light up. Seems there is a problem with them taking in water and I wanted them for our pool.

Will Not Light
I probably would like it if it worked.It is a nice size, â€‹but It will not charge in the sun so there isn't any light Pushing the button on the bottom and using remote do not help. I contacted the manufacturer and sent a copy of my invoice as requested over a week ago. I was promised a replacement but haven't heard from them since.

Great...while it works!
This was fabulous and exactly what I wanted. Arrived with no dents. Plastic seems to be very durable. It charged by solar. The colors gave off a nice bright light....for the two times it worked. After two nights of use....it didn't work anymore. I am so sad about this. Not worth the price for only two uses. Now how do I dispose of this electronic item?

Great Idea - Didn't Work
The globe sounds great, you lay it outside and it charges up and you have pretty cool lights - but - it didn't work.
There is a small undefined switch on the bottom, no indications to make sure it is off or on while charging.
We tried to charge it on a sunny day with the switch one way, then another, regardless of how we played with it, it didn't work.
Fantastic if you like a white plastic ball in your yard...

Worked Well for One Summer Use
We (Wife & I) ordered these for our newly renovated backyard. They worked beautifully at first, as we got about one good summer season out of them. We broke them out at the beginning of summer (Chicago - June) 2017 and let them bask in the sun's glory for a week prior to our first backyard gathering and that Saturday, July 1st, notta, ca-put, zilch, just nothing but a slight almost invisible glow from one. We are not too upset with our purchase. but we would not recommend this item, nor would we purchase it or anything from the maker of this product. But if you are feeling they may work for you and last longer, then give them a shot. We kept them in the garage during the winter and cold months, and never let them get wet, but they somehow got condensation within. We liked them, so bummer it did not work out for us.

Loved it so much when it worked
Loved it so much when it worked, but it got water in it and stopped working. We removed the cover on the bottom and tried drying it out and resealing it, but the parts inside corroded and then it stopped working all-together.

Great for Pool or Garden
I have one and just ordered another. It is fairly large and quite bright. You can select a solid color or have it cycle colors. A full solar charge will make this last well into the night. It can be used around the pool or as patio decoration. It has little feet on the bottom so you can put it on a flat, dry surface and it won't roll. If you are considering this, get it.

So far 'm very happy with them
I ordered 4 and have had them for a few days and have been putting them on and off our pool. So far 'm very happy with them. the pros:
-they are solar powered so no additional costs involved in lighting them
-They can be used on the pool and give off warm colored lighting (or white if that's your preference)
-they can be set to rotate through different colors automatically with the remote.
-they are large enough to provide a good sufficient glow of light
-they seem to hold their power for a good amount of time at night
-they look very romantic and fun at the same time floating on the pool! -so dreamy for adults to see and fun for children to watch.
-You need a good amount of them for it to have the right impact from an ambiance perspective on a pool. I bought 4 but could still do with a couple more and will at some point be happy to buy if they continue to hold out but am giving it a while based upon some people experiencing short term usage.
-The remote controls are good in that they will actually operate any of the globes (So I don't have to use each separate remote provided with each ball), but I do have to make sure that the balls are not next to each other if I want to set them to rotate through different colors at different times. -otherwise they change to the same color simultaneously.

Good purchase, beautiful ambiance- my own unbiased opinion
I bought three (total) of these globes last year after buying one and loving it. Two of them are still going strong- one died in a hailstorm, but to be fair so did our roof and siding. I take them in for the winter and if I can remember before a storm. They are very neat outdoor decorations. The kids love them, the neighbors have complimented us on them. I love that you can change the color of the light with the remote. We don't put them in the pool and they have lasted through a fair number of rain showers. Good buy. Solar powered.

Large glowing orb, but only after the brightest of days.
I kinda bought this as a prop for a photography idea, but the soft glow wasn't bright enough to illuminate the model how I envisioned. That said, it now lives happily on my front porch adding ambience to the outside. You can choose from white, to solid colors, to a blend of all of them. The colors transition pleasantly. The remote works very well. Although it needs to charge in strong direct sunlight during the day if you hope to enjoy it glowing at night. Indirect light or a cloudy day isn't strong enough to charge the solar panel through the plastic orb. So it lost some stars for that.
