I was researching these solar tiki torches and I came across these on ebay. It looks like they are the same as Costco is selling. They are priced higher, considering Costco has them on sale, but then again you have to buy a membership at Costco. Anyway, I just thought I would pass the info along, hope it helps.

I did a double-take looking at the flyer on the wall above the urinal at my local Homie Depot, ran over to the light section and grabbed two. At first I was looking all over for the bamboo poles that the box says comes with it, then I realized that it is collapsed in the box. There are two AA rechargeable batteries under the lid so when they will not hold a charge anymore, you just replace the battery, that was my beef with the early solar lights, you could not change the battery. I put it out in the sun for a few hours and then tried it out and it is very cool. The light flickers just enough to appear like a real flame. I am going to pick up a few more. I will miss the smelly oil...not.

those would look cool with an addition on the lit panel areas; some of the smaller size car rub on decal tropical designs; Turtle, hibiscus, surfer...etc...

I ordered the solar tiki torches from Costco (Malibu brand) and they took a couple weeks to get here.

They come packaged like this:




They quickly snap together (the pole has three parts):




Here's a night shot of one of them in action (minus the flickering):



I really like them from a design standpoint, but the poles are pretty flimsy. If you had them in an area where they might get touched or be in the wind you could always run a stake down the center for more support. They come with support stakes (plastic) but you can also get metal support stakes (Tiki brand) that would enable you to run a pole through them for maximum support. You would not be able to do that with the ones they provide. Overall I like them.

I just picked up 2 of the Malibu brand torches at Home Despot today. They were 20% off. Just thought you might like to know.

I saw these suckers first-hand at my cuzzin's Tiki bar and I was impressed by them. They do look real from a distance.

Hi all, I bought some of these from Home Depot, and I found the flicker to be very artificial and like a LED red bike light except yellow. The flicker was more of a strobe and I took them back. I have some little LED tea lights that have a very natural flicker and I was hoping these HD Malibu torch lights would be like that. Has anyone else found these Malibu torches very artificial, because everybody on here seems to like them except me?

Did anybody knows where to buy the stakes of the Malibu solar bamboo tiki light. I bought my tiki light in Costco. I tried to Malibu website but they don't have this model in their site.

I got mine at Lowe's. Bought the set of four for $48. Then I went back and bought another and another and another. I have 20 of them now scattered out around my hot tub and amongst my tiki statue collection. I still have my real torches, but for just walking out on the back patio to see these things all flickering almost like the real deal - without having to fill them up and light all of them - is a real treat!

Here is a shot of some of mine.

They are on sale at Target this week - 2 for $25 I think -- we bought ours at OSH for $12 each. They flicker all night -- nice effect!

If you want to buy them from Amazon, they have them now for about $25 for a 2 pack. Even better there is an instant rebate of about $5 per pack that show up when you check out, and they ship for free. So about $10 each shipped and no tax.

I just saw the 4 pack of the tiki torches at BJ's wholesale club for $49.00 and they had a $10 mail in rebate. That would make them $10 each. Good deal!
