Here are some of the questions that we get asked:
1. How do wholesale solar light work? (yes, this question comes up a lot)
Wholesale solar light which means that during daylight hours it gathers its energy (free) from the sun and charges the battery. A built-in automatic on/off sensor when to come on – at dusk and when to go off – at dawn.
The benefit of harnessing the power of the sun is that you can abandon electricity and all the charges that go with it. By utilising solar renewable energy, you not only save money but help the environment too. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no need for wiring and the units are self-contained.
2. Do wholesale solar lights work in the winter?
This will depend on the wholesale solar light that you buy and the saying,” buy cheap, buy twice” comes into mind here. Some solar garden lights may only last you the summer or may not work when you need them to. Investment into high-quality solar lights will mean that you have lights that you can trust to work in any environment, 365 days of the year.
Obviously, being solar- powered, solar lights are reliant on exposure to daylight and therefore need to be charged outdoors.
3. Are wholesale solar lights waterproof?
IP stands for ‘Ingress Protection’ which is the universal measurement of varying degrees for dust, dirt and liquid resistance.
Dowell outdoor solar lights that have been certified with the highest Ingress Protection rating of IP68 which means that they are resistant to being submerged underwater to a maximum depth of 1.5m.
4. Do solar lights need batteries?
Dowell solar light is fitted with a long life LFP battery with a lifetime value estimated to be 8+years, so there is no need for frequent replacement. Here at Lakeside Group our oldest site is coming up to 8 years old and all the lights are still in operation.
