Solar Lighting

Has anyone had any luck with some of the solar flood lights out? I plan on using them to light up a sign from the inside (sort of a shadow box sign) so Im hoping they will be bright enough....

Unless you buy architectural grade LED lighting, no one publishes specs or the specs are made up. These are all produced in a highly competitive manufacturing environment where the makers buy the cheapest LED's available for the day. But you are probably fine and worst case, just stack multiples. You cold buy multiples and return the unused. And good for using LED's, much more efficient.
