Solar garden lights are powered by a solar cell, also known as a photovoltaic cell. When sunlight hits the cell, it creates a chemical reaction that generates electricity. The electricity that is generated is then stored in a battery to allow the lights to be switched on at night.Where should solar panel lights be placed?
For optimum results, try to ensure that your solar lights are placed in an area where they will be exposed to as much sunlight as possible, ideally avoiding shade from trees and building structures.What type of light bulb do solar panel lights use?
LED lights are the most common type of light used for solar powered garden lights. Solar power and LED lights work particularly well together because LEDs are durable, highly efficient, very bright, and use less energy than conventional lights.What are the advantages of installing solar panel lights?
Solar panel lights do not require any electrical wiring, making them easy to install. Solar power is also an environmentally friendly way of generating energy, and once the light has been purchased there will be no ongoing running costs.What types of solar panel lights are available?
