You're looking for a Solar Floodlight (or two) and noticed that there are a billion different options out there. I'm going to go over the specs, models, and compare some of our Solar Floodlights so that you may find the model that is right for your needs!
I'd like to start by asking you some questions in order to find out what you need:
What area(s) are you wanting to illuminate? Is it a driveway, the side of your yard, trash cans, a dirt road, or a basketball court?
How bright do you need this area to be when illuminated?

What area(s) are you looking to illuminate?Small Area (Dumpster, Side of the Yard, Campsite)
If you're looking to illuminate a small area with the right amount of light, one of our smaller Solar Floodlights (SFL) would be the perfect addition. For trash can areas, either on the side of your house or for enclosures normally found at businesses, restaurants, and communal living areas, the 1000 Lumen Solar Micro Wall LED Light is a perfect choice. This light is also ideal for camping (I use one myself!)!
For brighter lighting, larger battery capacity (for those areas that receive less than ideal sun), and increased angling options, the 2000 Lumen Solar Wall Light is the answer to your lighting needs.
Medium Sized Area (Pathway, Driveway, Yard)
For those areas that are slightly larger than the average "side of the yard walkway", like a larger pathway, driveway, medium size backyard, or an out-building like a shed, I recommend the Solar + LED Floodlight 800 as it offers a compact/slim size, yet emits a good amount of light.
If you're the type of person that likes it really bright, then you may opt for the Solar + LED Floodlight 1600; it features double the max output and has nearly double the battery capacity too.
Large Area (Parking Lot, Walkway, Basketball or Tennis Court)
If you're looking to illuminate a walking path or a long driveway, the Solar + LED Floodlight 2000 is a great investment. This model has a good amount of "throw" and illuminates a fairly broad area. We just received a picture of a customer who illuminated his backyard tennis court with 3 of these models; and it is bright!
For those with larger areas of need, the new Solar + LED Floodlight 3000 is a big step up in brightness and features our new A.L.T. Lighting Technology. This light can run up to 10 nights on a single charge!
If you're "not messing around" and want the best, brightest, and baddest light on the block, then the Solar + LED Floodlight 4800 is going to give you the result that you're looking for. At 4800 max lumens, this light is bright!
