I love these patriotic lanterns. They’re great for any garden party and will be greatly admired at your Independence Day barbecue party!
You’ll get a set of 2 lanterns that run on a AA rechargeable battery per lantern. The batteries are included.
The lanterns are charged by a high-quality solar panel and include 3 LED lights per lamp.
Once charged the lanterns will light up automatically at dusk and will last for 5 hours, so this is pretty good for long summer nights.

Most solar powered hanging lanterns will turn on at dusk and turn off at dawn. Most have options to turn off the light manually though. To do this check for a switch usually placed close to the battery compartment.
