Factors To Consider Before Buying Solar Powered Spotlight

1. Brightness

First understand the intended purpose for the solar powered spotlights. Will you be using them at home to light up your garden path, to accentuate a tree/ decor, or light up the barbeque area? If so, a 120 to 600 lumens worth of solar lights will suffice.

The light output of a led ground spot solar lights is measured in lumens. The higher the lumens, the brighter the light will be. Look for high lumen solar spotlights, such as 300-500 lumens, to ensure that the area you want to highlight is well-illuminated.

For commercial uses like lighting up parking lots for your shop or lighting up a yard for security purposes, 1000 lumens or higher might be required. While purchasing solar lights for other purposes like solar lights to use in the pool or even solar deck lights, you may overlook this aspect to some extent. 

2. Type

Usually built with ambient light sensors, the outdoor solar spot lights can turn themselves on at night and off again at the hint of light. But you will find solar outdoor lights for trees in the market that are motion-controlled and turn on only when they detect mention. This saves battery and ensures security. If you want time-controlled ones, they will turn on and off as and when you set the timer.

3. Battery

Most solar powered spotlights come with lithium-ion batteries that are very low maintenance and more affordable than other fancier counterparts. The problem is they do not last long. Most manufacturers make their solar lights with easily replaceable batteries and sell the batteries should you need more of them. Lead-acid and nickel-cadmium batteries are more durable and reliable as compared to lithium-ion but more expensive, as well.

4. Solar Panels

The solar panel is responsible for charging the battery that powers the lights. Look for spotlights with high-quality solar panels that can efficiently convert sunlight into energy to charge the batteries. Also, make sure that the solar panel has a large surface area to collect more energy.

5. Installation

Outdoor solar spot lights with separate solar panel do not need plugging in or configuration of complicated wiring to be installed properly. They are usually sold as a package and thus require no add-ons. With an exception of solar shed lights, most other solar lights are easy to install. You can install them yourself as long as you follow the instruction manual. Just make sure the solar outdoor spotlights you purchase have clear installation manuals provided. 

6. Adjustability

Some solar spot lights for trees come with adjustable heads that can be moved to point the light in different directions. This can be useful if you want to highlight different areas or change the focus of the light over time.
