Good point! Our first set of solar yard lights purchased about 8 years ago used CdS (photo) cells. The first thing to go bad was the thin coating applied over the solar cell and CdS cell. The CdS cell then corroded. I replaced these cells, installed new solar cells, and replaced the batteries (2 AA NiCads) to keep them going to this day. They have stainless steel housings and glass reflectors, but the rest is/was junk. The newer ones out today are so much better.

@szrick, thanks a lot for your comments. It's great knowing the background of why my new solar lamps from the same company no longer have the little photocells on top. I appreciate you opening up a little mystery. I love the way technology is always evolving the things we use every day.
