Solar Garden Lights

Solar_Garden_Light In the past ten years, gardening has grown to be a very popular hobby. More people than ever are beautifying their landscaping and gardens, by adding distinctive lighting, stepping blocks, fountains and other yard ornaments.

Solar lighting in your garden is a great way to highlight a path or water fountain, it adds something interesting to your yard. Solar garden lights require no power source and can be put anywhere, there is no wiring or electricity required.

Typical solar lights are enclosed in a plastic case with a solar cell, a single nickel and cadmium batter, control board, LED light and a devise that retains and stores solar energy and provides light.

A solar cell gets its fuel from the battery. Throughout the day, this battery gets charged by the sunshine. The control board then draws its power from the solar cell and the battery both. When it gets dark, the battery stops charging and the photoresistor is activated and turns on the light emitting diode (LED). When the battery is completely charged, it can operate for about fifteen hours.

The obvious reasons for using solar lighting is that there is no need for electrical outlets or wiring. Though solar lighting is a bit more expensive than an electric light, it does save you money when it comes to your energy bill.

These lights have spikes attached to the light, which makes it easier to stick them in the ground. The lights are shaped like a dome and used for pathway lighting or as a focal point for a floral boarder.

Solar lights are also available in tubes, discs, lanterns, torches, and globes. You can even hang some on a pole or mount it on the side of your house or deck.
