Solar Lights Buyer's Guide

There’s really no better place to utilise solar lights 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 has a wide range of LED Garden 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, but they’re also eco-friendly, low in cost and highly energy-efficient thanks to their LED bulbs and energy-saving power source.

Nowadays, traditional incandescent bulbs are considered the least energy-efficient light bulbs on the market, with LEDs (light-emitting diodes) leading the way as the longest-lasting, most energy-efficient light source, which also happens to be 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 the included screws or sticking to any flat surface with Hoselink's Outdoor Acrylic Double-sided Tape ($8.90), our solar 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 automatically illuminates 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.
