Solar powered walkway lights

When the cheap solar powered stick-in-the-ground walkway lights quit working, is it usually because the batteries have been discharged/recharged to death, or the solar cells "expire"? Or other...?

Usually the batteries are spent. You can buy replacements, but they're usually not much cheaper than new lights.

Those lights are throw away, not a question of if, but when they fail. Save money and install some real lights and keep the landfill empty!
