Solar Feature Lights
What with LED being the lowest-powered light form we have, it marries seamlessly to solar power. A day’s worth of battery charging via a solar panel will drive an LED lamp all night, and so it is that a whole range of solar-powered outdoor lights have appeared on the market.
Solar feature lights are the frivolous ones: decorational lights, festoons, rock lights, globes, stakes, hanging lights and lanterns. Any type of light that is for show rather than for security or work might be considered a feature light.
From dusk ‘til dawn
Many of these lights have a built-in photocell that measures ambient light and switches on the illumination during darkness hours. Often the charge will allow for something like 8 hours of light, and then the recharging cycle will begin again the next day. With LED running costs being so modestly low, this means you can have always-on lights in your garden at night, allowing easy access or even enjoyment from indoors during the winter months.
