I assume you mean the inexpensive yard lights with self contained batteries.You can use larger capacity batteries. It will take longer to fully charge them from a fixed solar source, but once charged, the batteries should give longer on time.Yard lights tend to be hard on battteries as they do not protect against over charge or especially over discharge.
1. How long do solar lights stay on?
Usually if they get at least 2-3 hours of sunlight a day, they stay on all night. Read in the instructions to see what they recommend
2. Where can I buy Malibu solar lights model lz422w ?
My first comment would be, Please do not buy solar lights. They are expensive, cheaply constructed and do not put out enough light. Solar technology has not progressed enough yet for good solar landscape lights. If you really want some of what you specified then below is a link to where you can get some. You could get a set of malibu low voltage lights for much less money and they will put out much more light
3. Do all solar lights take time before they start to light?
I have small solar lights in my front yard. They took about a day of FULL sun light (not overcast outside) to light up. I kept thinking they were broken. They would not stay lit all night either. They still do not . So they do take time.
4. How do I get solar lights, which my company makes, to Africa - www.bogolight.com?
Hi Mark, You worked in Africa, I suppose. You know how tricky it gets penetrating the market. Main constraint being the lack of awareness as also the advent of cheap "me-too" products from China. Promoting your product through NGO's is one idea that would make sense, but this too has its own negative effects, such as bureaucratic delays, etc. I am based in Mozambique and Tanzania. Do keep me posted about the availability of your Solar Flash Lights in these countries. I would like to see how they work. All the best in your endeavor. Satish
5. The 11 Best Solar String Lights â Top Picks & Tips 2019
Just so you know what to look for when buying solar string lights, let's quickly talk about the most important considerations to keep in mind before you make a final purchase. Of course, one of the main things to keep in mind before shopping is how long the lights actually last for on a single charge. Some solar lights only last for 4 or 6 hours, while others can last for 20 or more. It does depend on if the lights are steady or flashing, but at any rate, the longer the battery life the better. Yes, this will also depend on the battery being used in conjunction with the solar panel, as well as the panel itself, not to mention the amount of sunlight available. The average seems to be about 7 hours of charging time, which should allow for at least 10 hours of steady use. This might seem odd to mention, but because these are solar lights, they are attached to the solar panel via a cord. So, if you want the lights to be easy to set up, the cord needs to be long enough so you can put the lights where you want while also being able to find a good place for the solar panel. At the same time, the cord should also be easily bendable and shapeable so you can set them up wherever you see fit. Moreover, a high level of durability, plus being waterproof is important too. Another thing to always pay attention to before you purchase any solar string lights is what area they are meant for. Some solar string lights are strictly for indoor use, others only for outdoor use, and the best ones can handle both. Keep in mind that solar string lights which can be used indoors and outdoors will be more expensive. Some solar string lights can only be turned on or off. Others have a switch which can be used to activate them, but they will automatically turn on or off depending on the ambient light around them. We personally like the ones which allow you to choose between a steady light mode and a flashing mode. How long do the batteries on solar string lights last for? What is the minimum average amount of time solar string lights need to charge for? This really depends on the climate where you live. Some solar string lights are very durable and can handle some wetness and cold, while others cannot. You just have to read the packaging on a specific string light to see what it can handle and what it can not . Will they still charge on cloudy days? Simply put, no not really. While they will be able to pick up some light through cloud cover, where it might take 6 hours to charge them on a sunny day, on a cloudy day it could take well over a whole day. Some solar string lights can be used indoors, but charging them is a bit harder inside. Incandescent and fluorescent lights will help the panel to charge the battery, but not as well as real sunlight.
