solar porch light recommendations

Search didn't get me anywhere on this topic so looking for some experience with small solar light unit to mount (externally) next to the Burro entry door. Probably used an hour or two each evening.

Here is one example of a motion sensor porch light for RVs:

Here is an example of a USB LED light that is very nice for a more subtle light if you have a cigarette lighter plug on the outside of the trailer. Just get a USB plug in adapter, plug this in, select the brightness. Also nice as a night light, or reading light that will plug into the computer.

I love the LITOM model I have. It can be turned on full time (dim or bright) or works with a motion detector. It has a light sensor as well, so it won't work until dark. It is very bright, thanks to the high capacity 18650 battery (removable, replaceable). I added a small metal plate to the window using 2-way tape. I added button magnets to the light so it can be easily removed and put in the sun or stored away.
I bought mine on Amazon (search: LITOM). They have several models. I'll attach a picture on the one I bought.

Your first example looks like a good choice. I was very amused when I noted that the prices for the 2-pak and 4-pak are more than if you buy multiple single packs. Maybe I was taught the wrong math in school.

My first thought was "Oh, that's because the single price is on sale for $2.70 less than the normal price $17.99". Then I redid the math.... What the! It would still be cheaper to buy them individually!
