If you are camping next to others, please turn it off around 11:00PM. Some like the dark!

I would hope the light is quite low if you're going to leave it on all night. My porch light is solar as are all the lights. My house battery is recharged with a solar battery and I see zero need for a solar porch light with rarely get used anyway.
I do have a couple solar lights that end up in the engine compartment when we're in the SW to keep the pack rats out.

Unless in an RV park, "porch" lights really annoy me when left on, even if they're fairly dim. We're out in the mountains/desert/forest. Artificial light at night is not welcome, except when you actually need to see something. So no off switch is too bad. I'd actually get one of these if it had an easy off switch.

my solor light

my light runs very muted I see almost spotlights at campgrounds they don't annoy me at all.

as I looked tonight I am thinking of adding another. if you walk by it comes on brighter for a short time. I like it!

Not everyone has day/night shades and people who leave their lights on all night are annoying If you're doing it for security purposes, all you're doing is lighting up all the good stuff around your trailer. A person could stand outside the light path, plot and plan. Then snatch and grab and be back outside the light path in seconds.

Porch lights left on do tell you a bit about the occupant. I think it indicates they're probably afraid of the dark

On a hot summer night the last thing I wish to do is pull down the shades and block the fresh air. Leaving any outside light on all night is similar to running a generator all night or playing your radio too loud. It's just rude. I'm sure the last thing you want to do is keep someone awake all night.
