Solar energy is classified as the most effective source of inexhaustible energy. This way, you have a good reason to go for solar Christmas lights.

Most of the solar Christmas lights today are designed the same as traditional spotlights. But with self-sufficient lighting units based on the photovoltaic effect. The photovoltaic effect refers to the ability of certain surfaces to absorb light photons and release electrons.

Solar energy is classified as the most effective source of inexhaustible energy. This way, you have a good reason to go for solar Christmas lights.

Most of the solar Christmas lights today are designed the same as traditional spotlights. But with self-sufficient lighting units based on the photovoltaic effect. The photovoltaic effect refers to the ability of certain surfaces to absorb light photons and release electrons. These released electrons are then transformed into an electric current which is later used as electricity.

To be self-sufficient, a solar spotlight sports one, and in most cases several, LED lights and a rechargeable battery. It comes with a solar panel made of different layers of material. It is capable of trapping light photons.

During the day, the solar panel absorbs light photons to be converted to electricity. It will be stored in the cell battery after. At night, the stored electricity is used to light the spotlight. The cell battery stored power will be depleted and more is stored the following day.

What are the advantages of solar lights?

Solar LED Christmas lights are versatile. They come in handy for homeowners as well as business people. You can use them to light an area at night. Also, it enhances security and you can still use them to beautify your landscape. Unlike traditional spotlights, solar spotlights are able to enhance visibility. Then beautify the surroundings in an environmentally and budget-friendly way.

What is the Difference Between Solar and Traditional lights?

Solar lights are more expensive to install than traditional spotlights. However, in the long run, solar spotlights are more cost-effective. The solar lights are eco-friendly. This might not sound much but when several people decide to use solar LED lights, the world will be a better place.

Unlike traditional counterparts, solar spotlights are easier to install and maintain. The lights do not need wires, no fuse, and no circuits. Even better, the lights do not need constant maintenance. As long as the sun shines, the solar lights will be up every night. If you can afford the initial installation cost, a solar light might be a better choice.

What to Consider When Buying Solar Lights
There are hundreds of solar spotlights in the market today. While most of them advertise lumens and battery power, the best solar spotlights offer a good balance between brightness, battery charge time, and run time and price. Some of the factors you should consider include:

Brightness
An outdoor solar spotlight may not be as bright as a traditional spotlight although they are reasonably bright. This way, you will have to estimate the area that needs light and buy enough spotlights to fill the area. When shopping, look for spotlights that offer high brightness (in terms of lumens) and longer battery run time.

Light Hues
Solar spotlights use LED lights. These lights produce bright white light. If you need a different hue, you will have to go for spotlights with tinted covers. Choose lights with ‘amber’ or ‘soft white’ as they give you the best hues.

Detachable Panels
If you live in an area that does not get bright sunlight during the day, buy spotlights with panels that are detachable from the lights. This way, you can take the panel to the most lit part of your garden for maximum charging.
