Full mAh capacity range of NiMH (the good chemistry) rechargeable batteries for Solar Lights are now available!
Solar lights for the home and garden come with pre-installed, pre-charged batteries from most (safe to say, all) manufacturers when you buy them online or directly at stores. What many people don't realize is that these rechargeable batteries will eventually run their course and lose all of their effective capacity after about 2 years of nightly use. These solar light batteries are almost always r...

The Bollards are Back!

Solar Bollard Light Poolside

The Solar Bollard Lights have found their way poolside, again showing their diversity in locale.  Not only do they make great lights for intimate patio settings, they also illuminate larger areas in open spaces by a pool in rural San Diego County.

Mounted to a 2 x 10 board, they are sturdy enough to withstand windy conditions while being doused with water during swimming exercises.  With an aluminum body that is powder-coated in black, they quietly gather energy during the day in order to illuminate with elegance at night.

Solar Bollard Light Outdoors

Sure, they are one of the more expensive solar lights on the market, but the payback is returned in no time at all.  One, they are off the grid (you know, no electricity to fuss with or pay for).  Two, they are totally safe around kids, pets and by pools (again, no electricity to shock your family or friends.  Nobody wants that.) Third, you are not letting the utility companies bill you to illuminate your landscape, ever!  Fourth, no black outs.  And if there is, you can just bring your Solar Bollard Light indoors and play that crucial hand of Texas Hold-Em!  And finally, they are just plain cool and make perfect sense (see above).

The power is yours (literally).  Going solar today is a reality we live in and can all enjoy.

Rechargeable Batteries Get a New Power Boost!

Typical solar light rechargeable batteries.

Scientists have successfully used transmission electron microscopy (typically used to study wet environments) in rechargeable battery research.  This is great news for the solar light industry in that it will pave the way for more efficient and effective uses for electricity storage units (i.e.: “rechargeable batteries”).  Why, you may ask, is this important for a product that has existed for decades?  The answer is simple.  The more efficient the battery, the less materials they will require and the longer they will last.  This is a win-win scenario for natural resource conservation and user autonomy.

Researchers using the new application have been able to build a battery so small that several of these efficient units could fit on the face of a US dime.  An incredible power source that can feed the needed juices to light up solar light LEDs around your home (new lights are sure to follow with the every-evolving capacity of solar panels) where the whole light may literally be the size of a quarter with the coming age of nanotechnology.  Efficient solar lights are available right now that will surely add that needed light around your gardens, and the market is soon to swell with even more crowd-pleasing products as scientists bring us into the new age of self-sufficiency off of an outdated electricity grid.
