Research Can Be A Headache

There are hundreds of different types and styles of solar lights to sort through when making a decision.

Of course, you’ll probably choose something with 4 stars and lots of reviews (we would too). But even then there are a lot of types to choose from, and it can be a process to go through them.

Next thing you know, it’s midnight and your eyes are tired from staring at a screen for hours on end.

You can save your time and put it towards more important areas of your life, like family and friends. While saving your time you can also find some of the best solar lights for decks.

Let’s take a look at them.

These lights were chosen for you as a consumer, meaning they are consumer-grade lights. Professionals prefer more expensive lights because they tend to be made from higher quality materials, plus we can usually get them for a good deal.

All of these lights can be used in multiple areas, but we believe they work best in certain places.

Overall Best Solar Lights For Decks (Stairs & Everywhere)

URPOWER Solar Deck Lights

This is the light that just will not quit.

You can enjoy the light from this solar deck light for a nonstop 12 hours after a full charge, which takes 6-8 hours. This is pretty amazing seeing as how most will only last half that time.

You can also choose between a regular brightness and a really bright light.

Though, when the motion sensor goes off the brighter light triggers for about 30 seconds. It can sense movement from up to 10 feet away with a 120-degree sensing angle.

You’ll notice they are durable too. They are weather and heatproof, so you can install them without worrying about them suffering damage.

You’ll be able to see your entire deck with these awesome solar deck lights.

Amazon Review

I recommend that you buy these lights but do test them rigorously and contact Coco-Vision if there’s any problem. Coco-Vision seems to be a legitimate company who is aware of its online reputation here at Amazon and are responsive to the customers.

Great Solar Lights For Deck Stairs

OTHWAY Solar Fence Post Lights

Nobody likes going up or down stairs in the dark.

Honestly, it can be kind of scary sometimes, especially for people who don’t know the layout very well.

You can ease everyone’s mind by using these lights for your stairs! They are bright enough so people can see where they are stepping, but not so bright as to annoy your neighbors.

Installation and replacement is a breeze too. Use 2 screws to mount the light and then put the plastic cover over the light.

Plenty of light and a nice aesthetic makes for a fantastic solar deck light.

Amazon Reviews

UPDATE 11/18: its been another winter/summer and these are still working as well as ever. These are great quality and great price. There are some questionable solar products on Amazon…These are not among them. Ten stars.

Solar Lights For Deck Posts

GreenLighting Square Outdoor Post Cap Lights

You will only want these lights if your deck posts are 4 x 4, because that is the size post these lights are made for.

They are also made to last. On a full charge these lights can last a good 8-10 hours, and they can last through season and storm because they are made from ABS plastic.

You may not be able to see everything around them as they mostly provide ambient light. Guests will be able to see where the deck railing is and it can look great!

They are not perfect though.

The plastic isn’t the best material. It will start turning yellow with age as it soaks in the sun, plus they don’t always fit very tightly. You may experience some slight issues with these lights.

Amazon Reviews

They work good & give off a fair amount of light. I’ve been using them for about 4 months. They are still working, however with time, the color (not the light, the plastic pieces) has turned from a very bright white, to a yellowish color.
