Thinking of buying from our brand new range of solar lights? With so many to select from, we’ve helped take the work out of choosing

There’s really no better place to utilise the humble solar light than the sun-kissed shores of Australia. Whether you want accent lights for better visibility after dark, spotlights for feature areas, security floodlights, decorative illumination for patios or functional marker lights for pathways, steps, driveways or an outdoor bin space, Hoselink have a brand new range of LED Solar Lights suitable for every purpose.

 

Why solar?

Solar lights are not only a viable alternative to conventional outdoor wired lights, particularly where installing electrical lighting is prohibitive, they’re also eco-friendly, low in cost and highly energy efficient thanks to their LED bulbs and energy-saving power source. Nowadays, the traditional incandescent bulbs are considered the least energy-efficient light bulbs on the market, with LEDs (light-emitting diode) leading the way as the longest-lasting, most energy efficient light source low in CO2 emissions, helping to reduce your carbon footprint. Yep, you read it right! Light bulbs do in fact contribute to the world’s carbon dioxide emissions created in the generation of electricity to power them.

Entirely portable with a choice of mounting to a wall with screws or sticking on to any flat surface with our Outdoor Acrylic Double-sided Tape ($7.90), the lights are all below 6V, making them safer than most electric kids toys!

 

How does it work?

Using a solar cell to absorb energy from the sun throughout the day, the cell powers a built-in battery which charges during daylight hours and stops after dark when the light will then automatically illuminate between dusk and dawn.

 

Choosing solar lights

Hoselink Solar Lights come in all shapes, sizes and functions, so to help you select the right light for your outdoor space we’ve put together this handy lighting guide. Every light we sell is 100% water-resistant and comes with a 12-month warranty. Remember, these lights require a minimum of six hours of sunlight per day to operate, so ensure you have a sunny position to mount your lights in before you purchase.
