Note: Above Troubleshooting is based on LUXMAN Solar Street lights

In addition to the above product performance problems, we also have some problems in the following aspects:

     1. Is the material configuration reasonable?

The installation of a solar street lamp is more sensitive to the environment. For example, the sunshine intensity, rainy days, longitude, and latitude of the project site will affect the charging effect of a solar street lamp. Therefore, a scientific material configuration is more critical. Usually, before providing product solutions, responsible manufacturers will understand the relevant data, so as to formulate product solutions.

      2. Are the materials used authentic?

Some buyers may ask, why are your products so expensive with the same parameters? In fact, the same product will also have medium, high and low-quality standards. For example, the same lithium iron phosphate battery is also divided into A level and B level. B is selected after being eliminated from A. if the product you purchase uses this type of battery of grade B, the stability of quality will certainly have an impact. So it’s important to choose a manufacturer that focuses on quality rather than just providing low-cost products.

   3. How is the production process control?

The production processing technology is also the core points that affect a solar street lamp. Do you choose a solar street lamp manufacturer with sufficient manufacturing experience, and will they improve their products according to the production experience, market, and installation feedback data? If yes, These products will become more and more stable.  Luxman is a manufacturer focusing on the production and manufacture of solar street lamps. We keep a long-term tracking of the performance of the products, and constantly optimize the products we produce, which makes our products stable in quality and competitive in the market.

Do Solar Lanterns Work in Winter?

A frequent question that is usually in the minds of users is whether the solar Lanterns will still work during cold and icy months. And the answer is Yes, most solar Lanterns are designed to operate in a variety of different climatic conditions which include heavy rain and snow. In fact, solar panels work better at cold temperatures than in hot temperatures. All solar Lanterns work in winter as long as the solar panel gets exposure to daylight to power up the batteries to a point that it is able to function.

How do they get charged in winters?

PV solar panels work by getting the energy from sunlight. It doesn’t matter whether it is cold or hot outside as long as UV rays hit the PV panels. Let’s find out how PV cells work through the photovoltaic effect.

The solar panels are photovoltaic cells (also known as solar cells), which are made of semiconductors (a substance that can conduct electricity under some conditions but not others) material usually silicon. When UV light from the sun hits the cells, the photons present in the UV light will let the electrons loose from their atoms, and as the electron flow through the cell, they produce electricity. Depending on the sunshine, if it’s bright, then a lot of electrons will get knocked causing lots of electric currents to flow. In case if it’s cloudy there will be a small number of moving electrons so the current will be reduced.

There is no heat involved in the process, so when generating electricity or moving the electrons, you don’t necessarily need a warm climate. One just needs enough exposure to direct sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours before the solar light can get fully charged.

How snow helps solar panel to work better?

As we all know that snow is white and reflective. In fact, it is known to be the most reflective natural blanket of the earth. What this means is that snow acts as a mirror to project the sun rays towards the solar panel for better PV performance. Some of the PV light which falls onto the ground surfaces nearby gets reflected in multiple directions and can be used by the solar panel as a source of charging.

Another benefit of snow is that due to cooler temperature the output of PV panels is increased. Having the notion of common people that if it is cold outside, the solar panel is not going to work. The charging of PV panel has nothing to do with the heat energy that is available outside, it only needs exposure to UV light to get charged.

 

How is temperature related to PV panel performance?

As mentioned earlier, the heat energy from the sun has nothing to do with the charging of PV panel. When the UV light hits the panel, it creates the bumping and moving of the electron which produces some heat energy. When the system experiences cold temperatures, the electron won’t budge that much.

So, when the UV light hits the panel during cold weather, there is no excessive electron movement or electron collision. This will naturally incur a high voltage difference and with that, it brings more energy being created.

In contrast to when it is hot outside, such as in deserts, the electron collision induces more heat energy which causes loss of output. This is because excessive heat can lower the electron’s efficiency in converting the sun’s energy to current. As a result, hot temperatures lower the output energy generation. So, the best working scenario is when the temperature is cold outside and there is enough sunlight available.

solar motion sensor light

How to Choose Outdoor Solar Motion Sensor Light

Using solar lights that have a motion sensor installed is an effective way to detect any activity outside of your home as it instantly shines a light on the person or object. But before making a choice there are certain things that need to be considered. Paying attention to the following things will help you in making the right choice.

solar light for garden

Range of Sensor:

In order to enhance the security of your home, the Solar Motion Sensor Light are a good and cost-effective option. The motion sensor should be able to detect the movement of a person as far as possible. Not only this, the sensor should also be able to detect the motion in as many directions as possible.

While making a buying choice, you should consider the range of motion sensor as it is an important factor to be considered. The good quality range of senor is considered to be between 10 feet to 40 feet.

In order to detect the motion in all directions, the sensor should have 360 degrees detection angle. This helps in covering the entire area. The range and the angle capacity depend on the area you want to cover.

solar motion sensor light

Type and Strength of Battery:

The type and capacity (or strength) of the battery is also an important factor to be considered. Lithium-ion battery having a higher capacity is a favorable choice. The user needs to make sure that the battery has enough capacity to supply power throughout the night.

The intensity of Light:

Another element of motion sensor which should be considered is its illumination capacity. The range of illumination depends on the lumens. Lumens are used to define the intensity of light produced by the bulb or LEDs. More lumens mean lighter.

If you want to have more light on your driveway or on your front door then you should opt for higher lumens and a LED bulb.

solar garden light

Type of Bulb Used:

There are different types of bulbs used in motion sensor lights such as incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs, fluorescent bulbs, etc. Among these choices, LED bulbs are widely preferred as they are energy efficient and can last for 20000 to 50000 hours. Other bulbs such as incandescent and fluorescent consume more energy and also have waste heat and require replacements at frequent intervals.

Motion Sensor type:

There are different variants of motion sensors that are being used in motion sensor lights. It depends on the user’s preference for the kind of sensor he wants to buy. Following are some of them

Passive infrared type

It turns the light on when it detects body heat within its area of operation. The sensor detects heat as infrared energy. The sensor gets warm-up and creates a movement detecting grid which keeps a track of the movements in the surrounding area. Upon sensing a movement, it activates by switching on the light.

Microwave:

The microwave motion sensor works on microwave pulses. The upside of using this sensor is that it covers more areas as compared to the infrared sensors, but there is one downside which is that it gets disrupted due to electrical interferences.

Dual Technology:

This technology uses a combination of both the infrared sensor and a microwave sensor. Advanced technology is used to reduce the occurrences of false alarms. This is achieved by using both sensors to trigger at the same time and activate an alarm instead of relying on just one sensor.

solar light for garden

How can we use solar light for garden?

The popularity of solar light is quickly increasing as more and more house owners seek environmentally friendly and cost-effective ways to illuminate their gardens. Solar lights are an excellent choice for garden lighting as they are affordable, easy to install, and only require sunlight to perform. Since the solar light system does not require wiring, it can provide light to those areas of garden or lawn which are at some distance from the electric sources. Solar light for the garden not only provides lighting but can be considered for security or safety purposes.

Based on the unique nature of solar power as an energy source, there are some guidelines for using the solar street light system successfully and efficiently.
Choice of right placement:

As the system runs on sunlight which is then converted into electric power and stored in a battery pack to be used during nights. When making a choice for location, make sure the solar light has access to the sun. Avoid installing the solar light under shades or places that are covered by shadows during some parts of the day. Also, before installing lights, it is helpful to place a marker where each solar light will be located in order to make sure if all the lights will be properly balanced in your landscaping and there are no areas left without light.

Fixing and Installing the light

Some solar lights come with light arm other are separate. Carefully mount solar light on the light arm by following the installation instructions. If the light component has no light arm, then attach and secure the solar lights at those places which have enough sunlight during the day. It is important that the solar panel on the light component is positioned to receive the required amount of sunlight to work properly.

Illuminating specific area

Solar lights can be used to highlight certain features in gardens such as fountain, tree or plant, seating areas, swimming pools, or statues, etc. Due to the evolution is lighting technology, the light bulbs are replaced with LED technology that is far superior to the dim solar lights which were made previously. Installing these LED lights helps to illuminate those specific areas without generating any waste heat.

Using solar lights is just as a sample as mounting the lights to the wall, fence, post, or other existing garden structure.

Illuminating pathways

Another creative use of solar lights is to mount them along the walkways in the garden. These lights are the perfect choice as they do not require any wiring and can easily be installed alongside the pathways. Many people install solar path lights for safety as well as for aesthetics.

Creative Uses

While mostly the solar lights are used for nighttime safety, they can also add up to the beauty of the garden. Solar lights for gardens come in various sizes and styles to suit the user’s needs.

For instance, there are some fancy solar lights that are used alongside the pool, raised beds, water feature, etc. to bring the place to life at night. One can be creative in installing them in any design he wishes to.

Another option is to use the lights to create a visual form such as a heart, star or butterfly by following a certain order. This will add more beauty to the garden.

Solar garden lights are safe

Solar garden lights mostly require 12 Volts to function, which is a safe voltage. 12 V can be found in electric toys, household batteries, etc. 12 Volts is a much safer choice if one has children in the house who play in the garden and the user wants to avoid the use of conventional lights which requires electric wires.

100w solar street light

How Many Peak Hours Would It Take to Power One 100W Solar Street Light?

The solar power system is one of the renewable energy sources which relies on sunlight to produce electricity. To do that it uses PV modules to convert sunlight into electricity. This solar energy will continue as long as we have sun glowing in our solar system, which is another 5 billion years.

The potential for solar energy is enormous as about 200,000 times the world’s daily electric generating capacity is received by the earth in form of solar energy. Briefly, the amount of sunlight that strikes the earth’s surface in an hour and a half is enough to power the entire earth’s consumption for one year.

To know how many sunlight hours, it would take to power a 100w solar street light of a specific rating, we should have the followings:

  1. Size and rating of Solar Panel
  2. Solar peak hours available on that location

Let’s find out how many sunlight hours it needs in a single day to power 100W solar street light for at least 8 hours.

In order to power the 100 W for 8 hours, we will be needing 800-Watt hours of power.

Now figure out how many sun hours will be available in a single day and how much power the solar panel will generate in a day. A peak sun hour doesn’t include just an hour the sun is out in the sky. In fact, it refers to an hour in which a solar panel produces a certain amount of energy.

Each peak hour is defined as one hour when the intensity of sunlight reaches an average of 1000 watts of energy per square meter (one peak sun hour=1000 W/m2). For a location that receives a total of 4000 W/m2 of solar radiation throughout the day, then that location gets 4 peak sun hours daily.

Assuming that we are using a solar panel of rating 300 watts. The power produced by a 300-watt solar panel on 4 hours will be 300W x 4 sun hours = 1200-Watt hours in a day. Accounting for the losses that will likely incur, such as voltage drop, wire, dust, snow, etc. Let’s reduce the power by 1/3 which is 1200*0.7 = 840 watts hours per day made from 300W solar panel.

Conclusion: With the power of 840 watts per day produced by 4 Peak Sun Hours, a 100W Solar Street Light will be able to run for at least 8 Hours.

li-ion battery

What Kind of Batteries are Used in Solar Street Lights?

One question that always delves into the minds of people when they switch to a solar street lights system is about the type of battery that will be used to power the solar street lights. Every user wants to get the best battery for their new solar light system that can save money, last longer, and requires the least amount of maintenance. With so many options out there in the market, some using confusing languages makes the choice difficult. It is important to know the kind of batteries, specifications, and their usage beforehand.

Knowing that all batteries are nor created equal, and many batteries are better in performance than others and some batteries in the market carry some danger to their operation. Let’s get into the kinds of batteries present in the market and some information about its specifications and battery profile.

Battery Type Size Nominal Voltage Voltage of Battery Set Cost Working temperature Cycle Life
Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) 18 x 65 mm 3.7V 12V Cheaper in price -30 to 65 Celsius 800 times
Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) 26 x 65 mm 3.2V 12.8V More expensive -10 to 75 Celsius 2000 times
Lead Acid Battery 90 x 70 2V 12V Cheaper in price -20 to 5o Celsius 300 times

Lead Acid Battery:

People widely prefer using this battery because of the price advantages. It is inexpensive as compared to other batteries. However, there are some disadvantages compared to Li-ion and LiFEPO4. It needs frequent maintenance, the risk of explosion is high, and due to the presence of lead, it has some environmental concerns. The life of the battery is somewhere between 3 -4 years.

solar street light battery

Another big disadvantage of lead-acid battery is that it needs a bigger solar panel for charging. The solar panel will have to generate at least 12 V to charge the battery. The battery size requirement for solar light application is not cost-effective. They are costly to manufacture which defeats the purpose of using inexpensive solar lights.

Lithium-Ion Battery:

Li-ion is a compact and high priced battery.  It requires a 3.7 V of power for charging. Which means the requirement of solar panel size is smaller. Even during cloudy days, the solar panel can still produce a 3 V and charge the battery.The life cycle of the battery is 4-5 years and it requires no maintenance.

One downside is that it is not favorable to extreme weather conditions. One of the kinds of lithium ion battery is the ternary lithium-ion battery. It uses Ni-Co lithium manganate as the positive electrode and graphite as the negative electrode material. The voltage platform of ternary lithium ion battery is very high, which means that the specific energy and specific power of it are larger under the same volume or weight. The ternary lithium battery is a 3.7V voltage platform, and the cycle life depends on different manufacturers, different models, and processes, and generally, it is 500-800 charge cycles. Below is the picture of ternary lithium ion battery pack.

 

Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery:

LiFEPO4 battery is a compact and priced higher compared to lead-acid and Li-ion battery. It is one of the most advanced battery types available in the market. It requires 3.2V of power for charging which means the requirement of solar panel size will be smaller.

li-ion battery

The life cycle of the battery of 6-10 years and requires no maintenance. Another advantage of this battery is that it can withstand extreme weather conditions.

How these batteries are used?

Lead acid batteries are generally used for lighting home and emergency conventional lights. Li-ion and Lithium-ion phosphate batteries are the best options for the solar lighting systems, especially used in all in one lighting system like solar street lights.

One of the important things to look out for in the battery is its capacity. Since the capacity is the measurement of the quantum energy that is stored in the battery.
