Bought one of these a few months back and finally got to use it. The device is only $49.99 and flat out works.

Pros:
1) Price
2) ability to hook up to their battery/solar combo. I used their feeder battery solar combo and it works well (about $40) No batteries to mess with!
3) the motion sensing feature works very well
4) able to see hogs under feeder from 75 yards with ease
5) they made it where it can replace the feeder motor bottom (on their feeder motors only). Nice idea, but I don't use their feeder motors

I wish I would have taken some pics of my setup to show, but I will try to explain. I screwed the light onto a 1x1 piece of wood about 6 feet long. I actually attached the solar charging system to the wood as well. I then screwed the wood to the top of the feeder (on the lid) where the wood extends out about 3 feet from the feeder and the light is directly under. Keep in mind that I use the Eliminator plates on my feeder motors and trap the coons around the feeders. I rarely have a varmint under my or on my feeders anymore. When I get a pic of one, I set the traps the next time out and it works well. For the smarter coons, I have a few secrets on trapping them that takes care of them too.

Anyway, keeping the coons away and adding the Hog Feeder light is a great setup for night Hog hunting.

Cons:
I can not find any yet. I will update the review in another six months if it is warranted (it breaks or stops performing like it is now).

Just got an update from a buddy that is one this site. He didn't have such good luck with his two lights. One was messed with by a coon and the other he doesn't think anything messed with it. He was screwing it onto his Moultrie feeder motor bottom and using the same battery to power both items. I have mine powered by their solar panel and works great so far. Again, I will update again around April.
