What we liked
- One thing we love about this Best Choice Products LED umbrella is the 24 LED built-in solar lights (3 on each rib) will provide the romantic dinner atmosphere that you, your family, or guests will love. They are not so moderately bright, they don’t burn hot (may damage the fabric), and not attract insects. Also, they take 6-7 hours to charge fully and can run for the same time.
- You have many lovely colors to choose from, and the superior quality canopy fabric offers UV protection, is water-resistant, and fade resistant. This umbrella will transform the looks of your patio, backyard, deck, pool, or even commercial places.
- It’s easy to open and tilt, thanks to the crank and push-button tilt functionalities. Tilt will ensure you block the sun during different times of the day.
- Going for less than $75, this is the best bargain for a 10 feet umbrella with solar light.
- Assembling is effortless, and the push-button connector will ensure the pole isn’t damaged.
- This BCP solar umbrella has plastic parts that have a high tendency to breakages
- While very colorful, the canopy fades a little sooner than expected.
What users are saying
“Received this umbrella and loved it, but like many others, our solar lights did not work. In spite of this, we loved the color and size, so we ordered a 2nd umbrella to store. When the 2nd one was delivered, there were instructions included, which were omitted from the 1st. The Instructions say to unscrew the solar panel on the top of the umbrella and insert the battery connector, which is just a plug, and replace the solar panel. Now the lights work. I hope this info is helpful.” Amazon.com
“Love this umbrella! It’s made of high-quality materials, and the lights are big and bright. I have it next to my Hot Tub, so at night the lights are so pretty. The set up was easy. It took me a couple of days to figure out that it has an on/off button for the lights, so I thought it was not functioning at first—just my error for not reading the instructions thoroughly. The price is amazing for this well-made umbrella with lights! You will not be sorry if you purchase this!” Walmart.com
“Came quickly, easy to assemble. Couldn’t figure out why the lights didn’t work for the first few days, but after untwisting the solar panel on top and plugging in the led connection, it works beautifully.” Amazon
“I love my new umbrella. It is well constructed and is easy to maneuver up and down and to tilt! The little lights are not too bright to attract the mosquitos but light enough for my comfort!” Best Choice Products
Pay attention to the 1-star reviews. I wish I had. Almost all say the same thing that the joint allows it to tilt to the side, breaks. I didn’t even open mine fully or try to tilt it before it completely broke under just the weight of the umbrella. Lightweight plastic, worthless for a joint. Amazon.com
Terrible quality on plastic components. Cheap plastic parts readily break, one broken in the box, and one broke on the third use. Replacement parts are not available, and replacement umbrellas are not available. Don’t waste your money on a BCP umbrella. Best Choice Products
“3 months, and it’s useless! Faded, button broke on the tilt, and lights don’t work. I’m going to attempt a return because I’ve had umbrellas last for years! Very disappointed!” Walmart.com
This well-made, sturdy, and good quality Best Choice Products 10ft Solar LED Lighted Patio Umbrella w/ Tilt Adjustment, Fade-Resistance is the best bargain you can get at this price. The solar-powered lights will give a pleasant ambiance to keep your party going. However, if you want to continue working, you will need more focused light.
For the solar lights to work, plug in the battery connector plug, charge for 6-7 hours and ensure you flip the switch on. You will have all these instructions in their easy to follow
To hold help stabilize it, you need a large stand, such as the Best Choice Products 81lb Heavy Duty Concrete Umbrella Base Stand w/ Wheels. If you live in a windy place and intend to use it without a table (standalone), you may need to consider even a broader base, about 100 pounds.
