Solar LED lighting fixtures are increasingly becoming more popular as a mainstay in homeowner’s landscape lighting designs.  Today’s outdoor solar lights are environmentally friendly, come in a wide range of attractive styles, and are constructed of high-quality materials capable of withstanding all of nature’s forces. 

It’s easy to think of the obvious uses tuinverlichting led for solar LED garden lights.  They are most commonly used as accent lighting for pathways and driveways, where the main goal is either security or safety.  Yet solar LED lighting can successfully be employed for many other purposes as well.

All exterior solar lights are popular for the following reasons:

(1) they’re reliable,
(2) safe,
(3) easy to install,
(4) versatile,
(5) and a great source of renewable energy.

The utilization of free solar power to recharge LED light bulbs and batteries, which only need a fraction of the amount of electricity to deliver just as much light as traditional lights bulbs gives solar landscape lights an overwhelming advantage over traditional bulbs in terms of both energy savings and a clean environment. 

How To Install Outdoor LED Solar Lights

If you want to get the most out of your garden lighting system, it’s important to consider a few  major factors before taking the plunge and purchasing and installing solar LED garden lights

The most important factor by far is sunlight.

Rechargeable batteries are what power your solar garden lights.  How long the bulbs remain switched on at night is roughly equivalent to the amount of sunlight the solar charging panel has been exposed to during daylight hours.

As you can imagine, people who live in northern latitudes during winter months are going to have a problem getting enough sunlight to sufficiently recharge their solar garden lights.  This problem can be resolved by doing one of two things:

(1) Turn the lights off for one or two nights.  Doing this will enable your solar panel to fully recharge the batteries.

(2) Remove the batteries and recharge them using a traditional battery recharger.

An initial primary objective when installing solar garden lights is to situate the solar panels (also known as the Photovoltaic (PV) cells) in an area that receives an abundance of natural daylight.  Ideally, you want them to absorb as much sunlight as possible to ensure optimal performance.  But the solar panels are able to obtain a reasonable charge even amid overcast days.

Buildings, trees and other obstructions are naturally going to limit the daylight recharging cycle.  Consequently, this is going to limit both the duration and brightness of the exterior solar lights once evening arrives.
