Solar Deck Lights: no-hassle outdoor lighting, till about midnight

Outdoor lighting is nice and elegant, but a pain in the rear — what with all the stringing of cable under the ground and disturbing the groundhogs. These cool Solar Deck Lights get you yard illumination without the hassle, not to mention leave your power bill alone. After soaking up rays all day, the lights four LEDs will light your way for five hours. That's not bad… hard-core party animals that get home at 4 a.m. might still have to find their way in the dark, but they'd probably be stumbling home anyway. The price is $25 a pop, going down to $22.50 if you buy three or more.
