Gadgets: Solar Light Balls Low Cost and Green

Updated on March 15, 2011


Security lights outside of a home can be a true addition to the overall look of the landscape. If you prefer a softer less glaring solution to landscape lighting than you would get from a flood light choose solar lights instead.

Solar lights are very inexpensive to operate and they do not require hard-wiring. Extra illumination can be had anywhere in the landscape – even in the pool, the birdbath or coy pond. Floating Ball Solar Lights leave no permanent mark on the property when removed. They do not get in the way of children and pets playing in the yard. They can be on or off depending on how you flip the switch. Bright LED light lasts for approximately 10 hours which should provide light throughout the darkest hours of the night.

The Floating Ball Solar Lights come in a set of four and each shines in a different color. One shines red, one shines blue, one shines green and the forth shines white. Guests at your pool party would appreciate the interesting touch of color. The LED lights are rated to last up to 100,000 hours.

Solar and battery power work well together. Replaceable batteries in the Floating Ball Solar Lights can last for up to two years. Even if you are a hard core solar power user – do not forget that the sun is not always cooperative. Batteries can provide those few hours of light until the sun does its job once again.

Decorative touches do not have to be large to make a big impact. Each Solar Ball has a circumference of 5”. At a cost of approximately $8.00 each more than one set is affordable. Since the Floating Ball Solar Lights provide security lighting as well as decorative lighting you can have the best of both worlds. Neighbors will have no reason to complain about too much light coming through their windows while intruders should still feel uncomfortable with the amount of light glowing in the area.

I like gadgets that do what they do without me having to worry about them.

      You are right, solar lights are very inexpensive and very bright. They are so easy to put up. Yes, no wiring and nor sockets to worry about.
