Christmas Holiday Solar Lights
Go Green with Solar Powered Christmas Lights
Solar powered lights for outdoor Christmas holiday lighting and displays is convenient, easy and earth-friendly.
Light up your home and garden like the Griswolds without being concerned about long extension cords, over-crowded outlets or overloaded circuits. You no longer need to worry about the danger of tripping over extension cords and you aren't limited to keeping lights and decorations near a power outlet. Solar powered lights make it easy to decorate even the most remote places of your property - even on a rural mailbox down the road or across the street.
Solar lights use photovoltaic cells to charge the batteries that power the LED lights after the sun goes down and most have a sensor that automatically turns the lights on after dark.
The only important thing to remember is that the photovoltaic cell chargers must be placed in the sunlight for at least 6 hours each day to power the light. Some lights have a separate solar panel attached with a cord that may be placed in the sun several feet from the lights and other decorations have a panel and light that are combined.
If the decoratio has a solar panel and light that is in one unit, you can place the light in the sun during the day to absorb the sunlight and move them to another area after the batteries have charged.
There are many different types to choose from including string lights, fairy string lights, net lights, rope or tube lights, icicle lights, path lights and other holiday decor. I love the fantastic variety of solar powered Christmas Lights and Decorations that are now available.
