Solar lights are great for sprucing up your garden and adding some extra light at night, but the questions around batteries and battery life are ones we get all the time. The good news is that solar lights have gotten better over time, so they'll last longer than they used to. In this post, we'll take a look at how long modern solar lights should last as well as what factors impact their lifespan.
Depends on the model.
The lifespan of a solar garden light depends on the model and manufacturer, as well as the quality of the battery, solar panel and LED light.
In short, you get what you pay for.
For example, if you buy cheap lights from a no-name brand that use low-quality parts in their manufacturing process, they're likely to die after just a few months - or even just a few weeks!
On the other hand, if you invest in higher end products, then your lights could last up to a few years or more before needing any replacement or adjustment. We design our solar lights with longevity, durability, and quality in mind so that you can install them in your home once and forget about them!
Modern solar lights have much better batteries than older models did.
Modern solar lights have much better batteries than older models did. With improved battery technology, your solar lights will last longer and use less energy to operate. Some solar lights come with a built-in battery that can't be replaced; others have replaceable batteries that you can change when they run out of juice.
If you've previously purchased solar lights and have had a negative experience, we recommend you try out one of our lights and see the difference. If you're not satisfied, feel free to contact us for a full refund!
The newer solar cells are more efficient than older ones were.
In addition to batteries having improved dramatically, new solar cells are more efficient than older ones were. The best way to understand this is by looking at the conversion rates of modern solar panels compared to their predecessors:
Modern cells have a higher wattage, which means they can produce more power per square foot of space that they occupy. This means you get better performance from your panels in terms of light output and run time on a single charge (even if you're using an old battery).
This is the technology that enables our solar panels to work even on cloudy days.
Modern batteries have higher voltages as well, so they can store more energy without being overcharged or overheated.
We hope this article has helped you understand how long your solar lights will last, and why they may not be working as well as you'd like them to. If you have any questions about our products or want more information on how they work, please contact us at any time! We're always happy to help out.
