Sniper hog light has by far the best feeder light out. It is not motion activated. It comes on with a solar panel that also charges the battery for the unit. It has a bright and dim setting. The new one has a remote that you can adjust brightness with now. So you don't have to go into your hunting area and scent it up before you hunt.
The cheap solar yard lights at wal mart will work. The hogs really pay them no mind as long as you don't over do it.
Had to go at the sportin goods store. There was pee all over seat. Cleaned it with wad of TP. Applied TP for protection from nasty seat. Turned to sit down. The sensor flushed and the powerful vaccume force inhaled my TP. Not fun.
If you always have lights on at night the hogs don't care. Hogs are very wary of change. If the lights are always on then no issues. I think motion lights spook hogs because they are not always on. As far as light color goes they do not seem to see red. Make sure there are no mechanical noises on the motion lights.
I can see the advantage of the lights being on at all time. Specially if your selling batteries along with them. Just wanted to mention the Terminator hunting light comes on ever so gradually and has a chip built into the system to accomplish this. I've personally witnessed the hogs reaction to this. At first some will back out of the orangish light for a second. Then they ease back into it and ignore it.

ment solo not cellular lights... They mounted on old tent poles, set up in oval shape under feeder... They come on few minutes before dark & hogs get used to it, if they stay around.. Once or twice shooting they learn quick

I prefer having the actual flashlight(Red), as you can take it to every feeder you have without setting it up. Takes 10 seconds to mount it on your scope. You can cover 50 feeders with one flashlight, whereas you can cover one feeder with one feeder light.
