This light is very bright if you face the LEDs toward the table. And it gently illuminates the underside of a patio umbrella if the LEDs are faced up and at its highest power. Holds well to a wooden umbrella pole and is very easy to operate the latch that allows you to remove or install the light onto the pole. Batteries last a good long time in this light. Highly recommended.
Awesome umbrella light, so glad I ordered this! Opens up, and clips shut around umbrella pole. Spring loaded braces ensure the light stays in place but easily maneuvers higher or lower to adjust needed light. 3 different light settings from low, medium, and high allow you the best options for outdoor entertaining. This was money well spent! Be sure you measure your umbrella pole circumference though, just to be sure this is the right size you need. Aim lights up at bottom of umbrella for less light or ambience, aim them downward onto table for family game night and while eating dinner. This was actually the perfect solution for my patio set up to bring plenty of light.
I bought two of these lights for our outside umbrellas. What i like the most is you can turn them so lighting is up or down. They have 3 settings which is great. They are very bright and most of all for the price they can't be beat! I have them stored without batteries in them and then when we need them just place the batteries in and put it on the umbrella . Pretty simple. They say they are NOT waterproof and from looking at how they are made I would agree. The only downside that I can see is the clip that holds the 2 halves together. I would stronglly suggest that you take your time when clipping and unclipping the latch as it is plastic and not sure how strong it is.
I like to go out on my patio in the evenings to sip a beverage and smoke a cigar. Most times I take my phone and bluetooth speaker with me as well so I can listen to music. The back door light was always too bright so after I purchased an umbrella for my patio table I found this light and decided to give it a try. I absolutely love it. It adds a nice ambience to my outdoor space and just the right amount of light. Great product.
This is a great solution to lighting an umbrella-shrouded table without an extension cord. It is easy to install the batteries and easy to mount to the umbrella pole. I recommend mounting it just under the umbrella's thin metal extension arms unit that moves up and down the pole. That allows the umbrella to close in a normal fasion without having to remove the light.
