Shining bright with solar powered lights
Solar lights are now arguably more common than their electric or battery powered counterparts. The technology behind them is no longer considered revolutionary, and in fact has seen continuous advancements since the early days of solar power. Of course we'd be lying if we said that performance of solar lights is unaffected during winter months - though there are ranges designed specifically to support winter use. Generally speaking, things like solar fairy lights, path lights and novelty items like solar animal ornaments and the like are most often seen during spring and summer. More practical items like security lights and shed lights are used throughout the year.
We'd highly recommend visiting our blog for much more information and advice with regards to maximising the performance of solar powered lighting. The general premise though is that solar lights work by using a solar panel containing a photovoltaic cell that collects energy from the sun during the day, and stores it within a battery. A light sensor called a photoresistor then detects when there is no longer any daylight or energy from the sun and turns the LED on. At dawn when the light sensor detects the suns energy once again, the LED will switch off and begin to store energy for the following evening. It’s all very clever, but all you need to do it switch them on, put them outside and let them do all the hard work for you.
