Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It took a little while to arrive but it was worth the wait. It was very simple to install, I used my staple gun because my fingures are too big to try to hammer in the tiny little hangers provided in the packaging. I set it up in my barn which is my workshop and when I open the door the first light with the motion detector comes on and lights the pathway to the first switch. It's amazing how bright my workshop is with all three lights on. The radio works just fine as well, I get all the stations that I listen to in my truck. Great investment and I'd recommend it to all my friends and neighbors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect----Love it----Just what I needed! I purchased two kits so far, first one over 1.5 years and the other is about a year to date. I have some land in Colorado that I use for a getaway from the city life. So, no tv-no computers and so on. I have one kit installed in my camper and this is my main lighting source and its perfect. I have never had a problem with this kit not receiving enough sun light. The other I given to my dad for his camper and he loves it as well. I will sit outside playing music with the radio feature and just soaking up all the nature that I can. This is perfect for camping, fishing or the shed at home. This is something that you can take on the go! Its worth every penny!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Man cave I am building a 12X28 man cave, club house, get-a-way what ever you want to call it and I want it to be totally off grid. I do have it wired for a generator but hope to not need it. This set of lights is just the beginning and is meant to give me an idea of how much lighting I will need. I bought the set just as a test and it has preformed very well. We have not had much sun in Ohio since the purchase but for the little I have used it, it has been very good. I also camp with my grandson and as portable as it is I am sure it will be used camping also. I am pleased and would recommend it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One worry lingering...but impressed so far Great design. Easy set up. Fair price. Way brighter than I expected. I'm happy with my purchase and I'd do it again. However, I worry about the ability of the solar panel to gather energy in anything other than the perfect light at the perfect angle. The display is very quick to say something to the effect of "no solar power" with the slightest cloud or poor angle. The only other system I have experience with still sucks up energy in all conditions. Even if the panel is covered with snow or its very cloudy. I wish this panel was the same. That being said, I'm still very new to this biolite system. As long as it collects energy faster than I use it I'll be happy. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and super efficient! The Solar Home was super easy to set up and while right now I am only making use of the motion sensor light, the panel is installed, cables are run and lights hung in preparation for the 2020 hurricane season! Living on the ocean on Canadas East Coast is stunningly beautiful, however we get storms, and they frequently take out our power for extended periods of time. Usually that means sitting around in the dark rationing cell phone and laptop power and forgoing my morning cuppa. This season though I am ready, between the solar home 620 and the camp stove I will be connected illuminated and well fed! Please branch out into solar powered coolers next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off Grid beyond expectations My wife and I bought one of these for her father. He lives off grid. He used to use petroleum based lighting in his house. We sent him one of these, and he is ecstatic. He said this was the best upgrade to his house in more than a decade. Knowing the shorter days in Montana, he is still looking forward to this coming winter to give it a complete run. So far it has exceeded all of his needs for lighting(only) and he is spreading the word in Montana. With that, my wife and I had planned to hold off for a few orders (on other products you carry) until we get a second one of these for our outdoor use in our pop up camper. Outstanding product worth every one of the 5 stars and then some. Thanks, Frank B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat little product It is February and I am in Michigan. After letting the panel sit in the window a few days it is charged and I use one light every day for couple of hours, as well as the radio on occasion. It isn’t a great sounding radio, but it picks up stations and that’s good enough for me. Battery is hovering around 80% and it has been cloudy here (and the panel is still just sitting in the west facing window). The other light is in my basement stairwell, so not using it much, but this was much easier to install than a hardwired light! Haven’t tried the motion light at all yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurricane Michael 2018 Emergency Preparedness. Bought the Home 620 a few weeks before Hurricane Michael hit the panhandle of Florida on 10th 2018. We installed it in our home within a few days of receiving it. When we got the hurricane warning, I fully charged it and uninstalled the solar panel so it would not sustain damage. After the hurricane, I reinstalled the solar panel. Our area was without power for over 2 weeks. We had radio, lighting, and phone charging hub. This was an invaluable tech to get us through the emergency, I recommend every home to have one no matter where you live. Very sustainable and versatile system. I would like to see a battery and solar panel expansion in the future, that will make this tech more of a long term off grid application with more options.
