Dakota LED Brick Light Stainless Steel 0.07W
I have bought 3 of these to go round the outside of the conservatory.
I have attached to a timer and they provide just the right level of light I required (enough to see the whole of a small / average garden in a 3 bed semi well, without being intrusive to neighbours). Was a bit concerned following some reviews, but I have fitted 5 bricks high and they are spot on. Considering Power usage, I am very impressed.
Fitting of electrics was fairly simple, lots of pieces to take apart and re-attach, but I just wired up and rebuilt the unit then fed wires from light to power rather than other way.
Build quality is excellent, all fit together perfect, and you can tell they are sealed when put back together.
Only 2 things to note for DIY (presuming trade wouldn't make my mistake);
drill any required holes behind fitting before you mortar, not easy to get a hammer drill though after.
These are slightly smaller than average bricks, so take a bit of mortar to fill. One job I haven't done before and took some time to get them nice and evenly spaced.

LED Brick Lights - be carefull
A very good on line deliver. However I will not use this again. Clearly each of the three brick lights had been opened and possibly used before. There was scratches on the protective cover for the outside were the fittings had been opened. Screws were missing. Lights good quality if not fiddly to fit. Not a good experience from Screwfix but I could not be bothered to travel 12 miles to take them back.

White LED brick light
Have 6 brick lights bought from Screwfix 9 years ago which need updating. Bought 2 of these to try and see what they are like.
The install is fiddly and the connectors are quite small. Would help if it had been pre wired.
One pack had 2 screws to mount the board to the inner (there are four holes/mounts) and the other pack had none.
After connecting up one board only 8 LEDs lit up. A few minutes waiting for the soldering iron to heat up, a couple of dots of solder sorted that and all now working.
Light output is good, may be too bright.If it is too bright I'll diffuse the clear plastic lens with a light acid etch.

im a electrician , after buying these for a new project in my house , i had a new brick garden wall built with a patio and these look fantastic .
yes they are a little bright but what do u expect with a bright led board . and a little bit of a fiddle to put in but i wired them all up and sealed them and then left the bricklayer to build in .
these have been in 7 months now and with all the rain we've had have not blown .
