Not easily on the ones we have. Not sure you can even get replacements.

Re: Solar Energy

Pauline - have spoken to my friends. They bought one set from Home Bargains and another set from Poundland. Each set takes 2x AA batteries.

Happy hunting!

Well, if they are battery operated they are not solar.
But, if you go that route, might I suggest that you get rechargable cells?

Then you might as well buy the solar type because most of those seem to come with rechargable AA cells.

Re: Solar Energy

Hi everyone,

I didn't have time to go to the city today at my sons.

But guess what,I just popped over to a very large Sainsburys,as I had forgot to buy cream,to go with our chocolate pudding.

I looked in the garden section and saw some great looking battery operated lights,that dangled down,

But they were singular and 5 each,..I didn't have time to take a really good look,making sure they were suitable for the garden.

So I will do that tomorrow,they looked good quality,but I will have to wait and see,

Will check them out properly tomorrow.
