in Home & Garden Features
We are now able to offer a style of solar light to suit any garden or patio after taking on the full range available from our friends at ‘solar mates’.
Alongside their silver and copper classics are a host of new models, including the large ‘Tube’ and eye-catching ‘Sleek’ solar lights. All provide ambient, warm white LED lighting.
All solar mates are made from stainless steel and feature an automatic dusk switch-on so that power is not wasted during daylight hours. The range is eco-friendly, CE certified and will continue to operate in even extreme temperatures.
In its simplest form, solar power can be described as the conversion of sunlight into electricity. This can be achieved through various methods, but photovoltaic is by far the most common, where power is converted and used directly, (with no intermittent processes).
Please note that as the available energy varies in relation to the amount of sunlight received, run times of all solar lamps will be reduced on overcast and dull days, particularly if positioned in areas of shade.
