These solar light batteries are almost always r...

Solar Garden Gnome Sleeping on Mushroom Review.

Solar Gnome
Solar Gnome in my garden. Image by Barbara White.

Just bought the solar garden gnome, and I have only two words…. Love it! I was looking for a gnome for my garden, and saw that these guys have one that is solar. I wasn’t sure how he would look in the garden or how the solar would work, but I absolutely love my little gnome. The mushroom lights up at night, so I am able to see him when the sun goes down. I put him next to some succulent plants in my garden, and he fits right in.

Now he will need a friend, so it’s off to see what other gnomes they have in their store.

Thanks Your Solar Link for my new addition!

Solar Spot Lights – How Are You Dealing With a Power Outage?

Posted By: Your Solar Link Team on July 10, 2010 in Latest Technology, Solar News - Comments: 1 Comment »

Solar spot lights like this one rely on energy from the sun to charge their batteries and provide light throughout the night. This means that there is no need to tap into the electrical grid for these lights to operate. The solar spot lights will work consistently, even if the whole neighborhood is dealing with a power outage.

Solar spot lights efficiently use energy stored in the rechargeable batteries when it uses multiple LEDs. In this case, 4 ultra-bright LEDs provide bright and effective lighting.

These Ultra Bright Solar Spot Lights can be used to light up many different features of a landscape at night. You can create an interesting focus by putting light on an appealing tree or a flowerpot. Another practical application would be to increase visibility along the exterior walls of a home, driveway or a walkway.

All solar spot light models are adjustable in their positioning. It could be directed up, down or forward, and at different angles around the post. All you have to do is to turn the wing-nut to secure its position.

Even on cloudy days your solar lights will charge, but it is always best to choose the sunniest location for your spotlight to get the most charge from the sun. Typically, the charge will last throughout the night. Your solar light will also turn on and off automatically every day.

Solar Spot Lights can also be used as a low voltage substitution to your existing outdoor lighting. At www.yoursolarlink.com, you can check out our Solar Calculator for your energy bill savings when you decide to replace your existing electrical spot lights with solar spot lights.

In the video below you can see it in a night setting. The 4 LED bulbs create an effective and sufficient directional beam.

The more LEDs a solar light has (it can be as much as 6, 10 or more LEDs), the sooner the rechargeable batteries will get used up for the night. This means that you could get fewer hours of a more intense light. But for this particular solar spot light, a perfect balance is achieved. The design gives the brightest light output with the longest duration throughout the night. And its LED bulbs never burn out.

These solar spot lights is corrosion and water resistant, so it’s safe to leave outside during all weather conditions. Each light is 6.5 by 7 inches square and 18 inches tall. They also come equipped with 3 Nickel Cadmium AA batteries and are ready to go right out of the box.

What Lights Your Pathway?

Today more and more people discard the idea of using standard electric lights and are exploring the possibilities of using economical and eco friendly solar lighting solutions.

The Solar Path Lights. Image by Your Solar Link.

Path solar lights are an excellent choice for lighting paths, walkways, driveway perimeters or other regions around your home and in your landscape. They are often used in multiples to guide the way along a set of stairs or a dark walk.
Video below is showcasing the Stainless Steel Conical Path Lights. They are sold in sets of 2 at Your Solar Link’s website.

These solar path lights are 5 and a half inches in diameter and 14 inches high.
To get the most benefit from the sun, try to position your solar lights in a sunny place. The fixtures turn on and off automatically for your safety and convenience. This also allows you to “store” the electrical charge for a special event and ensure the longest possible run time.

A solar panel that collects sun energy during the day is located on the top of the light fixture. This highly efficient solar panel collects enough energy during the day to provide 8 to 10 hours of free light during the night. This Stainless Steel Solar Light set uses 2 ultra-bright LEDs for maximum light output and minimum battery usage. It comes with 1 rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. The lights are safe and water and corrosion resistant.
No wiring is required to install your Solar Light set, no need to call an electrician, just stick the ground stakes in and they are ready to go!

Have a look at them in a night setting (video). These solar path lights emit a soothing glow and softly light up flowers and shrubbery surrounding them. They release just enough light to guide you along a path or accentuate the beauty of your garden.
Solar path lights fall into the category of solar accent lighting and are designed to mark a place. You can use them exclusively or to compliment other types of outdoor lighting. Perhaps somewhere where you don’t need extremely bright (like a solar spot light), but want something subtle, producing just the right amount of light.

This Stainless Steel Solar Path Light set is an excellent savings not only because you can buy it at a lower price from www.yoursolarlink.com, but also because you get free, clean and renewable solar energy while using them.
