What we liked
- This Best Choice Products 10ft solar LED patio offset umbrella has 24 built-in LED lights, three on each rib powered by a solar panel on top of the umbrella, will ensure you have light Christmas-like magical lights to keep you going long after dusk. The lights take 6-7 hours and last 8 hours once fully charged and has an off or off switch.
- It has a large, colorful, and stunning canopy available in ten different colors, making it possible to find one you like. Additionally, the 210g polyester fabric is UV and fade resistant as well as waterproof.
- The hand-crank lift makes opening and closing the umbrella easy, while the easy tilt system will allow you to tilt the umbrella canopy to block the sun from various angles.
- The extra-large wind vents allow air to escape (reduce chances of it being blown away) and help heated air to escape, keeping the umbrella cool.
- The extra free pole knob for more stability and ground strakes
- Comes with easy-to-follow assembly instructions.
- This BCP10 foot offset umbrella has plastic parts that break quickly, especially the pivotal collar that supports the umbrella arm, the tilt system arm, and the collar that keeps the umbrella as you tilt it.
- This umbrella cannot work where there are wind gusts. Even a small afternoon breeze makes it move.
What users are saying
“Easy to assemble – and has held up all summer (we got red – so of course the color has faded). My only complaint is that it slides down the pole unless you have it open really high – but that seems to be improving with age/time. The lights could be brighter – and it isn’t very clear as to how the switch works (we finally figured out that even though it is solar – you have to flip the switch off in the day, or they don’t work)” Amazon.com
Very easy assembly. The umbrella looks very nice and covers a wide area. You will need to buy the 4-Piece Offset Umbrella Stand Base to help keep the umbrella from tipping over. Other than that issue, I love the umbrella! Walmart.com
“I LOVE this umbrella. We screwed into the deck for added security because it will blow over. This is a heavy piece. This is a stunning umbrella; you will be completely & utterly happy when you purchase this. It’s so nice and big. I hope everyone can see the beauty in the pics. What are you waiting for 4??? buy it!! oh….one more thing- it lights up!!!!!” Amazon.com
Wow, this was a huge miss. Not happy can’t open on the stand it comes with it just falls over. Plus, it’s loaded with plastic parts that look like there going to break any moment. I can see why it’s in the markdown section. Heed my advice, don’t buy this umbrella; it’s just too unstable!! Walmart.com
“I have had 2 of these umbrellas, returned one because it broke and now the second one broke in the same place. The nylon cord that holds the umbrella up frays, and the cord breaks. It’s very frustrating and impossible to fix on my own, which is NOT an easy return. I had so much grief returning the first one, and I don’t think I’ll even bother with this. Read more about review stating Design flaw, second one $80 down the drain, it’s unfortunate.” Bestchoiceproducts.com
While it is very affordable, charming, and large, Best Choice Products 10ft Solar LED Offset Hanging Patio Umbrella isn’t a great choice for people in windy places. Also, it may not last long, primarily, if used in areas with high traffic. However, if you are willing to take good care of it, you can give it a try.
Best Choice Products 4-Piece Cantilever Offset Patio Umbrella Stand Square Base Plate Set will work well with this BCP solar umbrella.
