Power your life with the power of the sun.
We have fielded a lot of the same questions over the years. Below, you will find the answers to some of the most common solar questions.
What are the benefits of solar lights?
Free energy production and total portability are the main benefits of solar lights. Most solar lights can be easily transported and installed to harness free energy anywhere the sun shines.
And when compared to the utility cost to run outdoor lighting, solar lights generally have a much higher return on investment.
What are the most common uses of solar lighting?
Solar lights can be used for nearly anything. While solar string lights can be used to create a warm atmosphere, a solar spotlight can be used to illuminate your walkway, flag, and so much more. Today, solar lighting is used for both security and practical purposes.
Do solar panels need direct sunlight to work?
No, solar panels do not need direct sunlight to work. Although they charge much more efficiently in direct sunlight, most solar panels can generate partial electricity with ambient light.
Can solar lights charge on a cloudy day?
Yes, solar lights are still able to charge their batteries on cloudy days. While sunny days provide for more efficient charging, indirect sunlight on cloudy days can still be harnessed from solar panels.
Do solar panels work with any light?
Yes, although sunlight is the strongest source of energy, small solar panels can absorb the energy from most light sources to charge their batteries. However, we always recommend using direct sunlight to charge our products.
Can you leave solar lights on all of the time?
Yes, most solar lights are designed to operate without any maintenance and can be left on full time. Included photocells can seamlessly activate and deactivate solar lights at dusk and dawn.
If you’d like your light to conserve battery and only shine when necessary, a
solar motion sensor light can both welcome you home and deter unwanted guests with automatic illumination.
Are solar lights weatherproof?
Yes, most high-quality solar products are weatherproof, designed to withstand harsh rain, wind, and snow conditions.
Of course, to maximize the lifespan of your solar lights, we recommend preventing damage if possible by bringing your products inside during the winter or expected storms.
How do you convert outdoor electrical lights to solar?
Converting your outdoor electrical lights to solar begins with an audit! Simply take note of all of your fixtures and replace them with their solar-powered counterparts. With the variety of products on the market today, it has never been easier to convert.
Is solar worth it?
Yes, solar is almost always worth it in any capacity. With the free energy of the sun, solar-powered products can enhance your life with sustainable electricity solutions.

“This was an excellent transaction. I put these lights at the side of my house in a flower bed and I really like the amount of light they produce. They set a calming mood surrounding my plants. I would definitely buy again. I think they would also be perfect to light up the front of the house where people have to walk. Seller made sure everything was satisfactory the day after I received them.”
