A solar shed light can be of good use for lighting storage sheds, greenhouse, garage, storage area, workshop or even your attic.
Until recently, the only choice for providing illumination to non-powered sheds was battery lights. Solar powered shed lights offer the best solution to isolated and dark locations. Solar lights eliminate maintenance, costs and frequent batteries replacement associated with battery operated lights.
Some are even using them in caravans and boats. It is a practical alternative to hard wiring. It allows having illumination almost everywhere.
Wherever some occasional or additional lighting is needed, the solar shed light will find its natural place.
The solar shed light is a practical lighting solution
It is very easy to set up a solar powered shed light. All you have to do is to attach the small solar panel to the wall of the shed or the house and run the supplied long cable to the location you want your light to be installed. Simply attach the adjustable solar module on an outside wall or roof, and run the wire to the light fixture you mount inside the shed. Just pull the chain to turn the light on and off as needed. Fully charged the solar shed light runs up to four hours.
During the day, the solar panel collects the energy from the sun to charge the rechargeable batteries located inside the light fixture. Once well charged, the shed light can stay on for hours. Batteries can last for a couple of years before they need to be replaced.
Unlike solar yard lights that use LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes), solar powered shed lights use small fluorescent tubes producing a white and homogeneous illumination. The small neon’s provide a sufficient amount of lighting for most small places.
Recently some solar shed lights equipped with LEDs have begun to appear on the market. Check them here
What makes a solar shed light such an attractive option, is mainly because it does not require any trenching to run electrical cables from the home to the shed, thus eliminating the risk and costs associated with electric power. You also don’t want to ruin your beautiful lawn just to light the shed.
