They're the perfect accent to a well-manicured backyard, but the solar-powered lights dotting your gardens and walkways are just one misstep away from being accidentally destroyed. So IKEA has come up with the perfect solution, LED lights that you press into your lawn so that they're flush to the ground while still providing plenty of light.
In fact, you can probably even run over them with a lawnmower without any risk of the cutting blade making contact with the tiny lights.
In full sunlight they need about nine hours to recharge, and on a cloudy day they will need well over 12. But when the single AA rechargeable battery is full, these lights will glow for 12 hours straight. If only they could be used in and around the home without destroying your drywall. It sells for $10 in the US, but it doesn't seem to be available in Australia yet. [IKEA]
