There are a wide variety of solar lights in the market, and it is sometimes difficlle to compare the performance and quality: life, quality of components, solar light intensity, light color, autonomy…, this information is not always given. Make sure the product specifications, materials, number of LEDs, power in lumens, battery capacity, solar panel size, because often a lot more inexpensive solar lights marking lamps least one powerful solar lamp with a short life. (Oxidation of components).

Luminous Intensity Solar Lamp -Lumens and Watts

The universal measure of wired or solar lighting is the Lumen. The intensity of Solar Lamps Luminseuse you may be indicated in Watts Led, number of LEDs or Lumens. The most reliable value is the Lumens because Watts are not indicative of the actual luminous power, it comes to the consumption, and the lumens may vary with the quality of the LEDs, (lumens per watt) scattering angle and the power supply. Base on the lumens if completed, the LED solar lights if their power is not indicated primarily of 0.06 W per LED, an LED equivalent to around 0.6 W incandescent. The simplest method of comparation is to divide lumens by 10 to compare the lumens and watts incandescent.

As was stated on the website of the European commission, published March 24, 2010:  The measure lumens luminous flux of a bulb used to immediately compare the amount of scattered light. There is no need for it to refer to the wattage, which can be misleading. These are lumens watt-equivalent in 2010  (to date LEDs have evolved)

100 W = 1300 to 1530 lumens
75 = 920-1060 lumens
60 lumens 700-810 =
40 W = 410-470 lumens
25 lumens 220-250 =
15 W = 125-136 Lumens

Our new range of Solar Garden Light High Lumens Luxform 2015 indicates the number of lumens, as our terminals and powerful solar street lights for most. Manufacturers will be brought into the Future to indicate the number of Lumens for solar lamps, which will compare solar lighting and wired.

Choose a Good Site for Your Solar Lamps

Although the PV reacts to light, it is a mistake to think that the daylight is sufficient, the direct sunlight that will recharge your solar lights optimally radiation perpendicular to the solar panel. This is one reason why solar lights have less autonomy in winter, there is less sun, the sun is low and the solar panel should be angled at 60° around to capture the maximum radiation.
avoid any area of even partial shade, because the photovoltaic cells in the shade become consumers of current, therefore produce less energy to recharge the batteries of your solar lamp.
Clean the solar panel with d a damp sponge, especially not abrasive, and water, to retain the transparency and performance.

Integrated Solar Panel Lamps

-Place your imperative solar lights in a sunny and open area, no gray area, foliage,
trees, walls, etc., the better they will be exposed, the greater the intensity of solar lighting and autonomy of
-Make sure that there was no other lighting near your solar lights; Indeed, if the solar panel
captures light, the twilight sensor does not will trigger automatic activation of LED flashlights of your
solar, “believing” it is day. The twilight sensor is connected to the voltage of the solar panel
voltage directly related to the ambient light, the decrease or increase the panel voltage triggers the ignition
or the extinction of LEDs.
-Stay tuned to the eaves, tiles concrete, especially for your solar lights and solar wall lamps,
which could hinder solar gain on the photovoltaic panel.
-Stay tuned as your blinds in the summer that can prevent the supply of solar energy on your lamps.
-Do not attach solar lights the North side. (Unless the photovoltaic panel is offset, see below)
-If your solar lights are rather North side, position them far enough away from your home to prevent your lamps
Solar ending up in the shadow of the building.

Dimmable Solar Lamps

In winter solar gain will be less, and sun lamps work shorter, not see, because of the solar radiation that declines: More information in our section: solar lighting, solar lamps-they can operate throughout the year?

Some of our Solar lamps are Dimmables, include a summer mode winter, which allows you to manually reduce the intensity of the LEDs and increasing autonomy for the winter, like solar lighting lamps  Solar Beacon Volos, Solar Lamp Santa Fe, solar terminal Toulouse, Mix and match your solar lights with solar lights dimmable, the solar lights motion detectors, for winter lighting. other solar lamps not dimmable as our solar light Powerful Tag Julia  and the new solar lamp Julia2 warm white , which also exist in solar lights poles act also great in winter, with intense lighting quality 100 Lumens, thanks to their optimized electronic management, are to be adopted without reservation, the terminals solar BT or Tags solar BT 6 or 8 lEDs are recharged as quickly even in winter. solar beacon borne  solar  light solar solar lamp powerful  volos dimmable toulouse dimmable santa anna dimmable julia2 100 lumens
