Technical: Please note the brightness of LED solar
lights are not indicated by watts. The measurement
of it is 'mcd'. That means micro candle light.
The power of our light is about 3500mcd ~ 5000mcd.
(depending on amber or white and amount of charge)
They are powered by a pair of rechargeable 900mA
nicad batteries - AA size. (Batteries are easily
replaceable. They take two AA size rechargeable
batteries same as a torch or flashlight). The
batteries should last about 2 years and are sold
by us or any other shop selling rechargeable batteries
and it is ok to use later version more powerful
NiMh batteries also - (note: All solar garden
lights have batteries that need to be replaced
at least every 2 years- some designs make it difficult
to change the batteries but these cheaper models
will not last 2 years in any case).
The solar panels are from Astro Power USA- top
of the line. The LED lights are Japanese made
(Nichia. The light is assembled in China. )
Dimensions: The top where the solar panel is
located is 150mm in diameter (6 inches) of which
the solar panel area is 90mm in diameter (3.5
inches). The top - (head part)is 125mm high
(5 inches). The stake is 16 inches long (400mm)
so that when it is stuck in the ground the lights
stand up 12 inches above the ground (300mm).
Along with the stake, a mounting bracket with
screws is also provided along with a swivel
so light can be mounted on a wall or fence.
(don't worry, it puts together in two minutes).
There are now many different companies selling
solar garden lights and some of them offer very
poor quality. Please note that ours are the
best value available and highest quality. They
are fully guaranteed.
We have larger solar panels for better and
faster charging during times of least light.
Batteries will last 1 1/2 to 2 years - after
that just replace with two more rechargeables
(yes we have them at the best prices).
Easy to install, have one going in two minutes-
(ok - first one may take 5) - it all fastens
together - no wires – just place in the
ground (special stake provided) or screw to
the wall (all mounts and screws are supplied
to place in ground or on the wall). Durable
weatherproof. Special LED bulbs last ten years.
Now available in both soft amber or white. Rechargeable
batteries inside can be changed every 1.5 -2
