Our Solar Lights add decorative glow to your exteriors. These fixtures
automatically recharges during the day and turns on by itself at dusk. The solar
collector panel converts sunlight into electrical energy and provides an average of
8 to 10 hour no cost light for your exteriors.
The latest LED Technology makes our lights brighter and stay lit longer. To
provide you years of use, all our solar products are made of durable weather-
resistant surgical grade stainless steel . These best quality and decorative
lights cost nothing to operate which makes them the perfect product for your
driveway, patio or deck. With no plug-in receptacles or power packs, solar accent
lights can be installed even in remote areas where the sun shines and regular
power sources aren't available.A durable ground spike is also included.
- We know our Solar Lights have the best quality in the Market.
- One year manufacturer warranty
- Easy wireless installation
- Our solar lights are the best in the Market
WHAT IS AN LED?
An LED, or Light Emitting Diode, contains a chemical compound that gives off light when an electric current
passes through it. They’ve been around for many years, but only recently has the technology advanced so that
rather than just an ‘indicator’ light on your stereo amplifier or phone, they can be made bright enough to actually
use as an independent light source.
LEDs put out a tremendous amount of light for their size and energy draw. They create almost no heat and use
very little electricity. White LEDs were only developed in the past few years; before that they were only available in
red, green, yellow and a few other colors. Best of all, an LED will last thousands of hours; some have been tested
to over 50,000 hours (vs. a standard flashlight bulb that will only last a few hundred hours).
On a more technical basis, the centerpiece of a typical LED is a diode that is chip-mounted in a reflector cup and
held in place by a mild steel lead frame connected to a pair of electrical wires. The entire arrangement is then
encapsulated in epoxy. The diode chip is generally about 0.25 mm square. When current flows across the
junction of two different materials, light is produced from within the solid crystal chip. The composition of the
materials determines the wavelength and color of light.
The shape, or width, of the emitted light beam is determined by a variety of factors: the shape of the reflector cup,
the size of the LED chip, the shape of the epoxy lens and the distance between the LED chip and the epoxy lens.
We designed our LED for a fairly wide dispersion of light (rather than very focused). For this reason, if you look
directly into our LEDs they might not appear as bright as ones that have a very narrowly focused beam (better for
headlamps and flashlights). If you look from the side, however, you will find they display much more light than a
focused beam, and are thus better for a lantern application where you want light in a wider area.
HOW MUCH POWER DO LED LIGHTS DRAW?
Different colored LEDs use different amounts of electricity. In general, an LED uses about 1/10th the power of an
incandescent bulb and they are up to 90% more efficient than both fluorescent or neon bulbs of similar wattage.
If you wired your house to use LEDs instead of incandescent bulbs you could run the lights day and night for a
year with just a 12 volt car battery. Therein lies the beauty of our system: finally we have LEDs bright enough for
task lighting that can be powered by a very small, easily recharged power supply.
Most LEDs draw between 20-30mA of current. A typical rechargeable AA battery will supply between 500-1,500mA,
meaning 15-50 hours of light. Allowing for varying voltage regulating circuits, the actual burn times are about 20%
The voltage required to power an LED depends on which end of the light spectrum it’s color lies: red LEDs take
the least (about 2 volts) while blue take the most (up to 4 volts). When the available voltage drops below the
minimum required by more than 10% the LED will not work. This is one of the more curious electrical anomalies
of LEDs: Ohm’s law—one of the most basic laws of electricity—does not work.
