    I'm not trying to slam this product but let's see, solor LED paver lights?? What could be wrong with this picture? Solor and paver in one package? I've got to see this.

    Not at all, and no offense taken by any means. Our solar panels are beneath the surface of the lens so they are actually removed from view and we don't use batteries, but instead capacitors to increase the lifetime of the product.

    Paul, I sent you an email at your company site and would love to hear your thoughts. You're absolutely right, solar + LED + paver does seem "out there."

    We launched at NYC's Lightfair this past May and you wouldn't believe the number of people who had no idea what was going on! lol

    As I mentioned to Ned, please do feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to go further.

    I don't believe there is anything wrong with slamming a product (unless it's outrageous and you're insulting the inventor's mother or something), as everything is open to interpretation and criticism, which in the long run, will help to ensure innovation.

    edit - can't post an email address at the site. Thanks, Mike

    I am a member of Alibaba ( global trading website) and I just recieved some product information for fixtures that sound identical to what you are talking about here. They are solar powered pavers that use a capacitor rather then a battery for storage and LEDs to generate the light.

    I looked at the specifications and they are nothing that I would make use of here. Is your product composite (plastic, fiberglass) or different?

    Hi James, alibaba is definitely a great resource for international trade.

    Our solar LED is composed of a PC/ABS composite with a thick layer of polycarbonite resin as the surface. James, i'd love to send you an email introducing our line as I'd love to hear your thoughts when compared to what you found on alibaba.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Wow James, that is a really fascinating website. So many Chinese manufacturers...

    I think I've discovered an untapped market... now I have a new BIG IDEA...

    http://fuxinggroup.en.alibaba.com/p...den_solar_light/garden_grave_solar_light.html

    Get this...

    SOLAR HEADSTONES!

    BTW, Jhuanger, even the flat style headstones more popular these days could use those solar paver lights...

    absolutely, since our units are all self-contained, you could very easily just plop them in there.

    another great trade site to look at is www.tradekey.com.

    Hey Gregg, when you are specifying those solar powered LED headstones, make sure you included a flashing function so that it is easier to find an individual head stone at night.

    Now that is a niche!

    What was the name of this thread again? How did we get into lighted headstones?
