Lamp Hero is an outdoor lamp for your home that has an elegant, classical look, along with a wide, bright beam, and runs on solar power. It'll charge itself during the day, and automatically turn on at night to allow you to see clearly and feel safe. This lamp's adjustable post will extend to up to five feet in length, if you prefer a taller lamp, but it can also be shortened if you'd prefer a ground light instead.
The cost of Lamp Hero is $19.99 plus $7.99 shipping, for a total price of $27.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at lamphero.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Lamp Hero and has taken down the website. Lamp Hero may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
During the day, when the Lamp Hero is exposed to the sun, the sun's rays will charge the lithium ion battery within the apparatus. Ideally, after a full day, even if it's been somewhat cloudy, the lamp will be charged enough to remain on all night. Each lamp contains LED lights that will glow for more than 100,000 hours while the battery is charged, without burning out.
To use your Lamp Hero, first attach the adjustable mounting post to the bottom of the lamp head, and adjust the post to the height you need.
At the bottom end of your adjustable post, you'll find a six-inch stake, which you'll need to drive into the ground in order to secure your lamp where you want it.
After you've driven your post's stake into the ground, you can either leave the whole apparatus as is or use the included arm and hook to hang your lamp from the post. Regardless of whether you keep your lamp sitting on the post or hang it, you'll still get roughly the same amount of brilliant light.
Each of these lampposts comes in basic black with a clear, diamond-patterned cover over the light, giving each a classic, sophisticated look that won't clash with the decor in most yards.
Each lamp lights up by virtue of LED lights, which give off brilliant illumination and tend to take longer to burn out than other compact lights.
The LED lights within each lamp give off a wide beam, allowing them to light up a fairly large area of space, such as the entire width of a walkway or garden.
The Lamp Hero is both water and wind-resistant, so its head will likely stay put when subjected to high winds, and water is unlikely to seep through its covering onto the lights within.
This lamp will automatically turn on each night, even if you're not home, so you'll never have to worry about powering it up yourself.
Walking up a dark pathway, swimming in a pool, or cooking on the barbecue can be unsafe at night, regardless of where you live. Fortunately, using the Lamp Hero will give you some bright light while you do these activities, making them much more safe than they would be otherwise. You may also feel more safe inside your home if you can see some light as you look out your window, too.
If you want a classic lamppost, you can extend your Lamp Hero's adjustable post to its full five feet, or at least to four feet in height. However, if you think a ground light will be more useful for you, you'll be able to quickly adjust the post to make it shorter.
You may want to add some illumination to your garage or shed, but this particular type of lamp won't work well within these locations, as it likely won't get enough sun to fully charge itself.
The Lamp Hero will only give off white light, which may come as a disappointment to those users who like to change the colors of their lights according to holidays and / or the seasons.
Spotlights that attach to the house or ground, including those of the solar-powered variety, are widely available. These tend to give off potentially irritating, almost blinding light though, in comparison to the Lamp Hero's light that is brilliant but muted by the lamp head's covering.
You can get a wired lamppost that looks similar to the Lamp Hero, but you'll likely need an electrician to help you install it, and using it will cause your electricity bill to rise.
You could carry a flashlight whenever you're outdoors in the dark, but you'll need to strap it to your body or use one of your hands to hold it, leaving only one free. Plus, if you forget the light, it burns out, or you need to walk around in the dark unexpectedly, you'll be out of luck.
If you choose to use the Lamp Hero, installation will only take you a few minutes, and you'll likely be able to complete it independently. You'll need to spend longer installing a wired lamppost, or sit and wait while an electrician does it for you.
To maximize the charging potential of your Lamp Hero, install it in an area that gets a lot of sun during the day. If you find the first place in which you put yours isn't ideal, all you'll need to do is pull the device's stake out of the ground and move it.
