Vetted Performance Status
Lighting Global verified the following quality standards categories:
- Truth in advertising
- Lumen maintenance
- Battery composition, protection and durability
- Physical ingress protection
- Water ingress protection
- Soldering and electronics workmanship
- Mechanical durability
- Minimum warranty terms
- Performance reporting.
Two safety issues identified include:
- If pressure is applied on the photovoltaic panel by sitting or stepping on it, the device might break and cause bodily injury or electrical shock.
- A minor risk of burns exists due to the heating of the photovoltaic panel's surface by the sun.
