You may have heard that solar lights are not as bright as conventional lights. In most cases this is true, although with technological improvements solar lights have come a long way in recent times. The new versions can operate for longer now and they also emit a much brighter light than the previous models.
When trying to choose between solar or conventional lights, you may need to consider the particular application for your chosen light and the above mentioned benefits. For example, to highlight the outline of your pathway that meanders through your garden, a set of attractive solar pathway lights or even some stainless steel solar garden lights would do the job nicely.
