For what purpose? Lighting up a pathway? Accenting the yard? Security lighting? There are all kinds of solar lights available
1. Do solar lights only work with sunlight?
Any source of light will work, the stronger the light source, the faster the rechargeable battery inside will charge
2. I just purchased outdoor solar lights in a copper finish. How do you keep copper looking clean?
Some people buy copper because it will turn green (Like the Canadian parliament buildings) Copper oxidizes (turns green) rapidly --After you've thoroughly cleaned it you need to put a seal over it You can get metal sealants in any hardware store
3. How To Make Solar Lights Last Longer?
Sorry for your loss. Each person must grieve in their own way, but I would suggest that simply putting up the best yard lights, as you already have, might be enough. In the summer, when there is more sun, and nights are shorter, they will last longer. Solar lights are designed with a panel to match the battery and circuitry, so any single modification you do will make them non-optimal. The best way to honor your father may be to use your technological skills to benefit your family, or yourself, or the world at large. That's what my father and mother would have wanted. Their legacy lives in their children, and a thousand other places, not at a memorial site.
4. anyvone know about outdoor solar lights?
solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it to electricity during the day,and then electricity charge battery by solar controller, electricity is stored into battery,at night,battery release electricity to power the LED by controller. It turns on automaticlly,you could not do it hand-operated
5. outdoor solar lights - not working after being flooded?
I will politely disagree with the answer above. A bright white basking light is the best way to provide daytime heat for a bearded dragon. I have seen it for years, in many dragons, some over 8 years old. As for the specific bulb, most of the "specialized" reptile basking lights are halogen spotlights or floodlights. There is really very little difference in those and the halogen floodlights and spotlights you buy at the hardware store. There are some differences in the exact colour temperatures, but there are some differences in all bulbs, each "reptile" bulb from the other, etc. .. and they all work fine. You do still need a high output UVB bulb, and this can not be replaced with any other bulb. The halogen floodlights will not provide UVB, (neither will the halogen "reptile" basking lights, btw.) The only type of "all in one" basking lights that also provide UVB are called Mercury vapor bulbs. And they are usually pricey, and fragile, (they typically burn out easily). So, The halogens WILL NOT work for UVB needs
6. Why are car dealerships allowed by the government to leave their parking lot lights on all night?
as you said, because of security. I hope you realize that "solar lights" are just electric lights running off a battery. those lights are all hooked up to the grid, for the record though
7. Why has one of my solar lights flipped to come on in daytime?
there is a little photo electric eye probably on the top - make sure it is not covered with dirt or anything else... might look like a small round hole or a little domed button... check the lights that work to find it and see if something is different on the 'bad' light. If you can not find anything, the light sensor (electric eye) may have shorted out
8. Solar powered lights that go with plants (I saw at Home Depot/Wal-Mart) do they work? how long do they last
Solar lights are just accent lighting. They really do not emit light enough to see in the dark
