What are solar garden lights and how do they work?
Solar garden lights work like most solar powered items. Solar panels seen on satellites and calculators are called photovoltaic (PV) cells meaning they convert sunlight directly into energy. These solar panels can be grouped together to make solar arrays. PV cells have materials such as silicon which act as semiconductors, so when the light hits the cell a certain portion of it is absorbed into the semiconductor material.
This energy of the absorbed light is transferred to the semiconductor. PV cells also have one or more electric fields that act to force electrons freed by the light absorption in a direction. This is called the current, and when metal contacts are placed on the top and bottom of the PV cell the energy can be drawn off for external use, ie to power a solar powered garden light or calculator. So solar powered garden lights work by harnessing the sunlight from the sun, then they store this heat and convert it to power to run the LED lights when dark. Like a mini satellite solar powered LED garden lights store heat from the sun during the day and release it night.
How long do solar LED garden lights take to charge?
Our LED solar garden lights at RR LED traffic signs are ready to use just about straight out of the box. Once you set your solar powered garden lights where you’d like them, (with sun) they will charge through the day ready for use that night. The lithium battery within the unit can store power for 2 weeks without sunlight, meaning these beauties can be taken with you on trips away even when it’s raining.
