Adopting new technology would make positive changes in the daily lifestyle. Using solar lighting technology can be a lifesaver when natural sunlight is not available.
Taking care of the environment is our prior responsibility. However, a lot of people are becoming aware of the LED lights but after the announcement of LED Solar Lights, it was the huge step forward future lighting fixtures. Despite their spectacular rise in the past few years, solar panels are still perceived as a novelty ahead of its time.
Now the solar lights are for the residential, commercial and industrial space and have increased demand in the market.
Most people want to live in a smart city where they can get bright light with all the convenience available nearby.
Here’s the full scoop on choosing and using solar-powered lights for your outdoor space and yard.

TYPES OF LED SOLAR LIGHTS
As per the outdoor spaces have divided, that’s why LED solar lights are also divided for different types of areas. Here are mentioned below:
- LED Solar Street Lights
- LED Solar Flood Lights
- LED Solar Batten Lights
These are the main solar lighting appliances which offer benefits to the operator.
LED SOLAR STREET LIGHTS
To make the outdoor residential spaces such as walkways, parks, gardens, and much more “safer”. Most of the societies have installed metal halides lighting fixtures but they lighten up space with the blurry and yellowish light that keeps the space brighten but worthless unclear lighting outcome.
But, with the LED Solar Street Lights, you can illuminate the fixture in a proper way with the clear and white light.
LED SOLAR FLOOD LIGHTS
These lighting fixtures allow illuminating the wide space via few solar LED flood lights. As compared with the metal halide fixtures, these appliances are likely to brighten up space in a better way. Using these lights can save 100% money on lighting bills, it means you don’t need to pay costly lighting bills.
These lighting fixtures are widely used to illuminate the wide space such as backyard, open parking lot and many wide places.
LED SOLAR BATTEN LIGHTS
This is a solar fixture with the frosted LED Tube which illuminates the indoor space. By using this fixture, you don’t need to pay indoor lighting bills. This fixture looks like an LED Tube with the solar panel to operate the fixture on solar power.
NEW ARRIVALS OF SOLAR LED LIGHTS
This fixture has been specially manufactured for the entrance area of the residential, commercial, and industrial space. It comes along with the motion sensor to detect motion and instantly turns on the light. Now available with the new shapes: rectangle and round which make them attractive and trendy.
HERE WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT AFTER INSTALLING LED SOLAR LIGHTS...
Yes!!! Of course, you want to know what will happen when you start using solar lights to your space.
Once you’ll start using these solar lights, you’ll experience by yourself the drastic difference between the before and after the installation of this lighting fixture.
Most of us are aware of the LED lights but not solar LED Lights, these fixtures are totally environment-friendly and recyclable to minimize the amount of waste.
It is important to know what exactly you’ll get when you're going to invest with the new lighting technology. You can say it is just a test drive, as you select the car after testing it.
In this section of the blog, we’ll explain what would you get after start using this solar light. Let’s check it out...
#BENEFIT NO. 1 - START SAVING 100% ENERGY
Solar powered lighting fixtures collects the energy directly from the sun rays during the whole day and use it in the night time and the challenging weather conditions. It also comes with the lithium battery which also charged by solar power.
You don’t need to worry about the fixture, it is fully automatically fixture. As compared this fixture with the LED lighting fixtures, solar lights are more efficient and tend to save 100% energy and money on utility bills.
#BENEFIT NO. 2 - FIXTURE LIFESPAN
The lifespan of the fixture is three times more than a metal halide fixture. With 50,000 hours of operational life, the fixture requires low maintenance cost. It is an excellent option to illuminate outdoor areas. The lithium battery back-up of the fixture is enough to operate the lighting device without any charging for 2 - 3 days.
#BENEFIT NO. 3 - LIGHTING OUTCOME
To identify the lighting quality, you must check the CRI, CCT, Lumen, and Beam angle of the fixture.
The lumen output of LED solar light is up to 7000lm which is good for outdoor space. This much lumen output is enough to illuminate the surface space from a particular height.
Color temperature defines the color of the lighting natural white (4000K) and day white light shade which illuminates the space with bright light.
It is very important to know the quality of light, to detect the quality, CRI (color rendering index) must be higher than 80, in the 140x70° beam range you can see the true color of surroundings.
#BENEFIT NO. 4 - NO HARMFUL ELEMENTS
If we talk about the commercial unit lighting solutions, it must be eco-friendly. LED luminaires to generate less heat and don’t include any harmful components such as mercury, UV and IR rays in the light beam.
Any LED lighting products don’t have any toxicity components which affects human life in any manner. The metal halides and traditional lighting fixtures do have hazardous elements in the light beam which causes eye-strain and terrible headache and can be dangerous for migraine affected patients.
#BENEFITS NO. 5 - CONTROL SYSTEM
You don’t need to operate the fixture, again and again, it is automatic lighting equipment. With the Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) the lithium battery remains fully charged for as long as possible. It is an algorithm that includes charge controllers used to extract the maximum power from photovoltaic under certain conditions.
SOLAR ENERGY IS BOUND TO BE OUR FUTURE, YOU JUST TO AN IDEAL FIXTURE TO MAKE IT USED IN A PROPER WAY…
#BENEFITS NO. 6 - RESISTANCY
This solar lighting fixture is 100% water and dust resistance which makes this light source suitable for damp locations and able to face any challenging weather condition. With then inbuilt surge protection, it protects the whole fixture from any lightning strikes during bad weather conditions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION…
QUES 1: How long does each solar system last?
ANS: Each component of a solar lighting system has a different lifespan:
- Solar panels: up to 20 years
- Batteries: approx. 5 years
- LED fixtures: approx. 50,000–100,000 hours
- Electronics: approx. 5 years
QUES 2: Will the lighting appliance work if it's cloudy?
ANS: Well, solar lights work even if the weather is cloudy. The lithium battery can last for 2 to 3 days even if it's getting sunrays for the charging. The solar panels continue to charge the batteries, and the system is designed to work for at least four days with no sun.
QUES 3: Do solar LED lights need direct sunlight?
ANS: Generally speaking, outdoor solar lights charge up by getting direct sunlight. The more sunlight a solar fixture would get, there is more possibility that the lithium battery will charge up fast and keep the back up whenever it needs.
QUES 4: What are the best solar lights?
ANS: Well, it totally depends on the area where you’ll install the fixture. If you install the fixture in a garden and park kind area then LED Solar Street Lights and LED Solar Flood Lights would be the ideal options.
If you want to install the solar lighting appliance indoor then nothing can be better than LED Solar Batten Lights.
QUES 5: How long a solar LED light lasts?
ANS: Well, LEDs tend to work for 100,000 hours with low maintenance. As this lighting fixture comes with several devices.
QUES 6: What are the benefits of outdoor solar lights?
ANS: There is a list of the benefits of LED Solar Lights:
- Simple Installation
- Brighter life
- Able to work in any weather conditions.
- 100% energy efficient
- Longer last fixture.
