Answers to the 15 most popular questions about solar lights?

Ssl 60w High Power Solar Road Lights Solar Led Projects (3)

1. How do solar lights work?

All solar lights require four basic components: solar panel, charge controller, battery and led light source. Solar panels generate electricity in the sun. The battery stores the electricity generated by the solar panel. The LED light source provides the brightness. And the charge controller ensures that all three other components can work together safely.

2. Is there a battery in a solar light?

If you read the first question, you will know that solar lights need batteries. If there are no batteries as the energy storage component in a solar lighting device, then without sunlight, the solar light will have no energy.

3. Will the solar light last forever?

Here, we will answer you in two parts. In the first part, if there is not enough sunlight throughout the day, the solar light will not work for too long during the lifetime of the solar light. The second part, the life span of solar light components. Different quality of battery is 1-5 years. Solar panels of different quality have a life span of 10-25 years. Different quality of solar charge controller is 3-5 years. Currently, most solar lights on the market have a life span of only 1-2 years due to battery life.

4. How do we use solar energy outdoors?

Solar lights need sunlight in order to get enough energy. Therefore, designed for outdoor use is waterproof.

5. How can solar lights save money?

There are

a: 100% solar energy, no need to pay electricity bill. Maintenance fee is far cheaper than led with electricity.

b: No wiring required. Customers do not need to trench for solar lights. This can save the cost of electrical workers and wire costs.

c: Solar lights are easy to implement intelligent control to save energy.

d: The luminous efficiency of solar lights is 10% higher than electronic led lights. Therefore, the solar lights can reduce the LED power with the same brightness.

6. How to fix the solar light?

When the solar light is not working, you need to check 6 parts. Battery, controller, LED, solar panel, switch and wire connection. The most easily damaged parts are the battery, the switch, the controller and the wire connection. Therefore, the first step is to check all wire connections for looseness. Then replace the battery, switch and controller with new ones to check which one is bad.

7. Can outdoor solar lights work in cloudy weather?

If it is not very dark on a cloudy day, the solar lighting system can still generate electricity at very low power. If it is very dark, the solar lighting system will not work at all. However, there are technical ways to ensure that the solar lights work 100% of the time on cloudy days. We can place the solar lights on the grid to ensure that the solar lights can be powered through the grid when the battery power is turned off.

8. Are solar lights dangerous?

On the electrical side, solar lights are much safer than electrical lights. This is because solar lights are low DC voltage, while electric lights are high voltage AC power.

However, some poor quality solar lights contain poor quality lithium batteries that carry the risk of spontaneous combustion.

9. How long can outdoor solar lights last?

The led power, battery capacity and solar panel power determine the lighting time of the solar lights at night. Sold on Amazon for $20 to $60 solar lights can last 1-3 hours of full brightness lighting time. With motion dimming and automatic time dimming, the solar lights have enough lighting time for daily house use. For solar street lights with larger battery capacity and solar panel power, they can last all night lighting for 3-4 cloudy days.

10. Why does the sunlight fluctuate?

Reason 1: Loose wire connection. Reason 2: The controller is broken.

11. Can solar lights be charged with artificial light?

Artificial light can more or less charge the solar light. Full spectrum light is better than narrow spectrum. Therefore, traditional light bulbs can charge solar lights better than LED bulbs.

12. What is in the sunlight that we use to generate energy?

Solar panels produce electricity. And it is the batteries that store the electricity. In this way, solar cells can work at night using the electricity in the batteries.

13. What are the advantages of solar lights?

  • Environmental protection business
  • Save money and save money
  • Easier to install
  • Safer
  • More energy saving
  • Intelligent control
  • More convenient
  • More flexible investment

14. Has anyone ever used a solar light indoors?

For all portable solar lights, you can put the solar lights in a place where there is enough sunlight. and move them into the house at night. Please note that you must make sure that the solar light has enough sunlight to charge the battery during the day.

15. Can I charge the batteries of the solar light in a conventional charger?

First of all, solar cells are 100% rechargeable. Just make sure that the voltage and currency specifications of the batteries match those of a conventional charger and there will be no problem.
