solar lights for chandelier-- how much light?

If you put 5 or 6 solar lights in a chandlier, would that give a useable amount of light? Or would you need more?

I'm not sure, but I don't think that many solar lights would give you enough light to be considered usable. It would be more like a bright nightlight I would think.

Solar LED garden lights give you very little light.

Perhaps you can take a look at this:

I think if you put 5 or 6 lights in a chandlier - it would give alot of light. Maybe not as much a a porch light would - but I think it would be perfect . I have about 6 solar lights spaced around my deck - and at night - it lights up the whole deck.
