Most solar lamps can be self-powered by a twilight sensor when it gets dark. So in the evening you always have lighting in the garden that you do not have to worry about. Besides, they hardly need to be serviced. Your batteries should be replaced every few years when they become weak. Therefore, you should always make sure that your solar lights have replaceable batteries.


How do solar lights work?
Solar lights are powered by photovoltaic with solar energy. This is a technology that uses solar cells to absorb and store solar energy and pass it on to the light source.


Solarzellen bestehen aus mehreren Schichten

Du willst es genauer wissen? Die Solarzelle hat mehrere Schichten, wovon die obere positiv und die untere negativ geladen ist. Dazwischen befindet sich noch eine Schicht, die mit Elektronen besetzt ist, die sich zum Pluspol bewegen, sobald Sonnenlicht auf die Solarzelle trifft. Die Zelle wird zusätzlich von einer leitenden Metallschicht darüber und darunter umgeben, die über den Akku miteinander verbunden ist. Diese nimmt Elektronen auf, die zum Pluspol wandern und lässt dadurch Spannung entstehen. Es fließt Strom – also doch keine Zauberei!

Install solar lights
Acquired solar lights can only be used outdoors and must be exposed to direct sunlight. In places in the shade, under roofs or under trees, a solar light can not be installed. Also, do not place them near artificial lighting such as a street lamp. The reason for this is the built-in twilight sensor, which is otherwise not activated. In a brighter light incidence your lamp would be deceived and does not turn on automatically. Solar lights can also affect each other, so they should not be placed too close to each other. The first time you use it, the battery should be charged for two days, or even 10 days in cloudy weather, so as not to risk permanently minimized battery power.

➢ The luminosity of a solar lamp is just as important, so you get really useful light in your garden or on your balcony. LEDs are very advisable because they require little energy, but still have a high luminosity.

➢ The light color is of course also essential for a cozy garden season, because bluish lights are rather uncomfortable, while warm white or orangestichige garden lamps cosiness for the evening hours. Warm white light is measurable with a light color of 2400-3500 Kelvin, the higher the number, the bluer the light color. For more information about light color we also have our lexicon.

➢ The battery of the solar lamp should be replaceable, so that you can use the lamp for many years.

➢ If possible, the packaging of the solar lamp should contain a recycling symbol to ensure that the lamp can also be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. For example, nickel metal hydride batteries are recyclable.

➢ The life of the lamp is also a factor to consider when buying. An LED has a lifespan of 25,000 to 100,000 light hours and is also resistant. Thus, no filament can burn out as with conventional bulbs.

The most important questions and answers about solar lights are here for you:


How long do solar lights shine?

How long do solar lights have to charge?
How long a solar light needs to recharge depends on the amount of sunlight that falls on the light. The amount of light during the day when the sky is not covered is enough to charge the battery. The only exception is the first start-up of the lamp: It should be used two days in the sun and 10 in overcast skies to fully charge the battery. In winter, the sunlight is rather less enough to recharge the batteries of the solar lamp. Most solar lights should be stored in winter so as not to harm the battery. It would be ideal in winter to charge the battery from time to time with a charger.


How do I clean solar lamps?
Solar lights should not come in contact with solvents. Wiping the lamp with a damp cloth is enough to clean it. Especially the solar module you should clean regularly to not reduce the charging power. If there is dirt on the surface, less solar radiation can reach the solar panels.


Why do solar lights need batteries?
Solar lights do not need batteries but rechargeable batteries that can be charged and recharged and recharged. With cheaper models you will find this firmly installed, with more expensive ones are usually used interchangeable. Modern batteries usually have a life of 1000 charging cycles, so you should pay attention to replaceable batteries, if you want to use the lamp longer.
