How to Choose Quality lights
How to Choose Quality LED Solar Powered Party String Lights
Solar LED Christmas fairy lights
are powered by the sun converting UV rays into energy which charges the battery. The power stored in the battery,
lights the Christmas Light LED's at night when the solar panel senses the sun going down. By understanding how each component of a solar light works, it becomes
easier to pick out the good from the bad solar products in the market.
What to consider when buying Solar Powered Fairy Lights
- Solar Cell Functionality
Is your solar light using a pure solar cell OR a fragmented piece? Solar Cell Fragments will not
charge the batteries as effectively as a good quality solar cell. Avoid buying solar fairy lights with uneven or unmatched solar cell pieces.
- How big is the solar panel?
In a nutshell, more solar cells within the solar panel charge your lights faster. This is because the
sun has a greater surface area to work with and therefore converts more energy more efficiently. Smaller solar panels on the other hand have less contact with the sun light so take longer to charge.
Generally speaking, each additional solar cell strip will improve the charging time of your solar fairy lights as long as it is matched
with the right battery. Remember, the faster and more efficient the sun light can charge your battery, the brighter your Solar fairy
light LEDs will be in the evening.
- Battery used
Is it environmentally friendly and how long will the charge last (or how long will your solar powered lights stay illuminated)? NiMH batteries may cost a little
extra but they are more environmentally friendly than NiCd batteries - also known as lead acid batteries.
NiMH batteries are more eco savvy because they use a dry liquid which can be disposed of more easily, and they also last
up to 3 times longer. NiMH rechargeable batteries cope better with partial sun light charges. This is important with solar fairy lights because
the weather can at times be unpredictable. NiMH batteris have a "non-memory" effect which means they will continue to charge your solar fairy lights
on cloudy days.
Solar Party Shop only uses NiMH batteries in all of our LED Solar String Lights. Our range of solar Christmas lights LED
will last a minimum of 8 hours in our standard range of lighting and up to 28 hours on our commercial quality LED Solar Fairy Lights.
- Operating Time
The operating time is a general indication of the quality of materials used to make up the solar string lights. The lower the operating time
quoted generally means fewer solar pieces and smaller battery capacity combination are used to make the solar lights.
- Position of Solar Panel
Solar Panels are best placed in a true north to north east position in the Southern Hemisphere or true south position in the Northern Hemisphere. This in
most cases will ensure maximum sun light exposure on the solar panels. The performance of the solar lights is dependent on the location of the solar panel and/or weather conditions.
Shade and tree cover also needs to be considered. If true north or south is not the sunniest position for you because of garden foilage, buildings, trees or other shade cover,
then moving up to 90 degrees east or west of this position should still provide adequate sun light to power your solar garden lights each night.
