Last week we bought a set of solar string lights (around 40-50 LEDS about 18' long) for $15 at Big Lots for our barn and they work great for about 6-8 hrs after the sun goes down. My wife liked them so much she went and bought another set for the Shasta. Don't know how long they will last, but there is a AA rechargeable battery in the charger pack that can be replaced if it starts to get weak.

I like them too. I have a number of friends who use them....I'm gonna get a pack or two. I suspect there is no reason to think that with LEDs that they will last a good long time. I have noticed that the $3 cheap solar path lights you get at HD and Lowes don't necessarily last that long, but that might be wiring. I had a dozen and 3 went bad by the end of our 7 weeks of camping using them pretty much every night.
