Functional Solar Light for Outdoor Use

2016-07-07

There was a time that solar lights were as rare as, say, a mobile telephone. But just as most people have a cell phone these days, people should look to inexpensive and highly Functional Solar Light to light up their yards.

Outdoor solar lights are greatly improved over the bulky, low-light products sold a few years ago. Today, they come in a host of styles and they are fairly inexpensive, especially when you consider you are eliminating the electric current to light them up. They can be used anywhere that electric has not been installed and they have access to at least a few hours of sunlight. This makes them especially useful for outdoor areas.

There are many uses for solar lights, a few of which are outlined here.

Put a solar light where you want light to shine after dark, such as a solar flood light in dark corners of your property, at the base of the driveway so no one misses the turn, or along a pathway that might be treacherous in the dark. A set of sleek, stainless solar-powered lights can be placed along walkways or the driveway.

You don't need to run cords or have an electrician come out and do the hard wiring. A solar panel on the top of each light stores the sun's energy during the day and converts it into bright LED white light for 12 hours at night.

Thankfully, today's solar lights provide plenty of light to show off the darkest outdoor areas. Mount a mini solar spotlight above your house number or near your front door, so you can see where to insert the key. These compact lights are mounted with screws or double-sided tape. So you don't have to fumble with your keys and visitors will be able to see your house number.

As a matter of fact, today's solar lights do not have to be all about function. They can be fun, while lighting up your property. Try a set of two solar-powered lights that change colors. You'll have a rainbow of colors, rather than the plain white LED light cast by most solar lights. The lights charge during the day. At night, they turn from blue to green to red to yellow. Best of all, they have on and off sensors that automatically turn the lights on at dusk and off at first light.
