About Atomic Beam SunBlast
Installing lights in tight spaces is such a pain, you need Atomic Beam Sunblast – the new solar powered, motion activated LED light that claims to be super bright. Atomic Beam Sunblast requires no wires, no pliers. You just have to stick it up, the industrial strength adhesive claims to mount on any surface (wood, stucco, stone, siding).
How does the Atomic Beam Sunblast work?
The solar panels charge the Lithium-Ion batteries which then power the Atomic Beam Sunblast. You don’t require batteries and no electricity bills to pay. Atomic Beam Sunblast features a 180 degree motion sensor turns on the light when someone gets near it and automatically turns off a few seconds later. The manufacturer of the Atomic Beam Sunblast claims the sensor range of the solar powered light to be over 25 feet. The Atomic Beam Sunblast’s wide angle design covers more ground than the other. The manufacturer claims that the heavy duty construction makes the Atomic Beam Sunblast sturdy and weatherproof (waterproof, rainproof and snow-proof). The super-bright LED flat panels last a lifetime without burning out.

Atomic Beam SunBlast Verdict
You need to understand that this is not the only solar powered, motion activated outdoor LED light. Telebrands the official marketers of the Atomic Beam SunBlast have picked up a “MADE IN CHINA” light and turned it into a miracle light. This is not the first product that is promoted by Telebrands with such ferocity and blitzkrieg, Atomic Beam Flashlight, Torch, Lantern, Headlight are some of the products marketed by Telebrands under the brand “Atomic Beam”.
We have carefully tracked the life cycle of these “Atomic Beam” products. What they do is they pick a good, branded and popular product, then they launch and promote (in a typical As Seen On TV/Infomercial format) the downgraded “as seen on tv” version of the same product and make it look like a life savior. Most people don’t realize that there are a lot of good alternatives available elsewhere and they get sucked into buying such crappy products.
Lets consider the latest gimmick from Atomic Beam the SunBlast Outdoor Motion activated LED light. The concept seems to be copied from the much acclaimed Litom Solar Lights or URPOWER Solar Lights. These solar lights (LITOM and URPOWER) come in several models and each model has different features. Some models have more LEDs, some have higher luminosity, some have more lighting modes (continuous light, dim mode and sensor mode). Atomic Beam does not reveal this crucial information (number of LEDs, luminosity, lighting modes etc). Many customers have mentioned in their reviews that they though the Atomic Beam the SunBlast has all the 3 features and were dismayed to find that it is just a motion activated light also SunBlast.
A simple search for “solar powered outdoor led lights” on Amazon.com will list tons of these with 4+ ratings and hundreds of reviews. You just need to have patience
