Default Garden lights

With the recent clement weather, I've been spending a few evenings pottering around the garden.

I'd like to buy some external garden lights to high light trees etc - preferably solar powered so that I don't have to mess about with routing mains electricity.

Most of the B&Q specials are awful - anyone experience of solar powered lights that actually light up things. Make, where purchased etc. Ta.

not cheapest option and you would have to route cables but you could have a similar system to what i have in my house. i have a solar panel on the shed roof that goes through a solar charger and charges a 12v battery then i have a cable that routes it in to the house and i have a 12v light system that runs off the battery. costs nothing to run. i have led bulbs in downlighters in the ceiling. im sure you could find some sort of 12v for out side and if you can fit led lights you dont need a very big panel. i have also got mine all set up with remote control so i can turn lights on and off from anywhere in the house. even have it so i can turn little ones tele off so she cant watch it all night, but sure you wont need that in the garden.

I tried the Solar powered lights they didn't light anything up so bit the bullet and put in a mains set from B&Q and now just switch them on at the plug when required.

Will have a chat to the bride tomorrow Clanless. Our garden looks like bloody Christmas and Manchester airport runway, coupled together at night mate.

She tells me " do you want 50 or 100 " feck knows what she is on about? but apparently we have both now.

And we have meerkats peering over bushes also. It's fecking embarrassing to say the least.

thanks for the responses chaps. Like the idea of a battery being charged by a solar panel - could put the battery in the summerhouse to protect it from the elements.

Tony - please tell me they're not light up meerkats.
