Color Up Solar LED Lights Review

Chris Albright complains in his Color Up Solar LED Light review“It is not advertised correctly. Color Up is described as having a Lithium battery, but in fact it has a much cheaper Ni-MH battery. For an accent light on a small tree (about 6 feet away) the Color Up light barely reaches the tree and is only noticeable if you’re within 10 feet or so from the tree. The Color Up Solar LED Light description says battery lasts 3 years, but the instruction manual says to replace at 8-12 months. Seller should be more transparent in their listing.”

Emily Bishop reveals in her review“The Color Up Solar LED Light shines about 3 feet on low and 5 on high, however on high it won’t last the night.”

Richard Dunn exposes Color Up LED Lights in his review“The base may break after using it for just two weeks. Color Up isn’t really bright enough to outshine the front porch light.

Joe Irving mentions in his review“Color Up Solar LED Light didn’t work. The seller shipped a replacement Color Up light to try but the replacement product worked only for about 4 days, and then it stopped working.”

Gary Sonnett states in his Color Up review“Placing the Color Up Solar LED Light stake in a large plant pot so it was under a roof but still got enough sun to charge and shine on the walls around but the solar cell is so heavy it could not be adjusted and stay with the flimsy adjustable knob, it simply fell down. Also, the push button auto off/on control never worked right, was very stiff and had to use 2 hands to push it. Plus it is on the back of the solar cell, you have to hold the sides of the cell and push the button with the other hand as not to damage the cell. Lastly, Color Up worked only for a week and then quit and never worked for 8 hours. Even after charging it in a window and outside the house, it would come on a few seconds here and there but never worked right. It was never dropped or placed in the rain. It worked here and there but never worked right. It was never dropped or placed in the rain. Color Up Solar LED Light is not recommended. The over sized heavy solar cell with the control button on the back is not a practical design.”

William Barnes feels ripped-off by Color Up offer, in his review he complains“Color Up Solar LED Light is made with plastic that is so cheap, that the both units broke after using the light the first time.”

Paula RODRIGUEZ states – “The MicroSolar 100 lumen is much brighter than the Color Up Solar LED Lights. Color Up Solar LED Light is useless, it has poor charging and very poor light. The intensity of the Color Up Solar LED Light is not enough.”

Benjamin Clark states in his review“Two hours after turning the Color Up Solar LED Light on nothing happened. Color Up is a complete waste of money.”

John Christopher mentions in his review“Color Up Solar LED Light’s claim of 8-10 hour battery life is not accurate.”

Bobby Collins complains in his Color Up Solar LED light review – “Tried every direction and every angle, etc. but at best the Color Up Solar LED Light would last about 3-4 hours if very lucky. Average, about 3 hours, often less if not a typical sunny day.“

Bertha Lee says in her review“Color Up Solar LED Light does not last through the night even when it is fully charged.”

Sofia SANTOS complains in her review“Color Up Solar LED Light is not adjustable enough. The solar panel is set in the opposite direction as the light. If you want to point your Color Up light to the south, the solar panel is not facing the sun.”

Emma ALVAREZ complains“The Color Up Solar LED Light is nice, but it doesn’t last long. Color Up lasts only 3 hours once it’s dark.”
