Garden Solar Lights no longer light up :-(

Don't know if this is the right place to ask this and if it is not please feel free to move it.

This is probably a really stupid question but I have those solar garden lights in front and back yards and there are only about two of them left that actually light up. I have only had them for two years. Are they finished or is there a battery (?) or something I can buy to make them work again??? I really really like the ones in the back garden as they change colors and I looked for more this year and could not find them.

Is it hopeless or is there hope?

Most of them you can replace the batteries. Rechargable AA's normally. Usually located on the underside of the cap.

When mine stopped working, my dad came round and wiped the panel clean. It gets dirty and can sometimes stop them from working. So wipe the panel when you charge or change the batteries, just in case! I was called "blonde" for not checking that myself, so you can look intelligent by mentioning it first!!!!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
