Solar Chameleon Smart Globe Light 6" diameter
Love these lights around our koi pond!
I purchased my first set of lights several years ago and paid about 20% more, so I was happy to find the lower price when I wanted to add more units. These lights do very well staked into the dirt around the pond and provide a fairytale ambience to the area as they glow and change colors.
I cannot imagine these lights would do well for a long period floating in water. The screw on cap is not waterproof although it may be possible to seal it in some way. In fact, water does collect inside the globe from humidity and dew. Although not necessary, I believe that you can extend the battery life by allowing the globe to dry out when necessary.
After three summers, I only have 2 of 8 which appear to be non-functioning from the original set. So based upon the elements they endure through rain and Texas heat, I am very pleased.

MOST EXCELLENT PRODUCT
This is our second purchase of this globe. The first one worked great for more than 5 years . Being in Colorado's constantly changing climate, I think condensation finially got it. After 5+ years that's not too bad! The colors are awesome!!!!
We did not float it in our pond because I was not to sure of it being water tight with no seal ( I am told by other reviews a seal can be purchased at any hardware) and its size. We now have an 8 inch diameter one and it works great also. We may consider another one just for the pond or as aanother accent for the pond.

Everything I was expecting
In looking for interesting yard additions, I ran across these lights. They're big enough to make a statement, bright enough to be seen and they do exactly what I was expecting them to do. Even though they were a month late for my daughter's wedding in our yard, I LOVE the lights.

I love this product. I bought one about 2 years ago, and still have it, but decided to buy another. I love the change of color mode. I now have one floating on both sides of the pond.
