Installing garden lights in a traditional way can be expensive and time-consuming, so go solar and install solar powered lanterns for the garden. Here you have a list with Amazon best-selling items in this group.
Such solar powered garden lanterns are an ecological, effective, and inexpensive way of adding ambiance to your garden. They are easy to use and to maintain, and after some affordable initial investment, they will work for many years.
How these solar-powered lanterns work
As usual with any solar-powered tool, these are simple constructions with a small integrated solar panel that converts the sun’s energy into electricity. The energy received during the daylight is stored in an inbuilt battery. In the evening, an automatic switch will turn the battery-powered bulbs on and it will turn them off during the day. You can expect up to 15 hours of light, depending on the model of course.
Note also that nothing has to be fixed here, there are models which you can move from place to place and re-arrange the light in the garden as you wish. Just make sure that wherever you position such a lantern, it is exposed to the sun. Note that we have also a separate list with solar pathway lights which you use on the ground, and also solar powered camping lanterns.
How to choose
As you realize from the top picture above, there are many options regarding the style and design. So choosing is individual and nobody should tell you which to choose. But there are some technical aspects to bear in mind.
Materials: Typically you have metal or ABS plastic frame, and glass. There are pros and cons for both metal (which might rust) and plastic (which can be less durable), but these are best-selling products so follow the links and see what other users say about this aspect.
I would say that more important is the issue of waterproofness. You will see clear indications for many of them, this is typically an IP65 waterproof level. The number 6 here describes the level of protection against dust (and this is the highest), while 5 is against water (and this is moderate but completely enough for such a purpose).
Brightness: Here you can have significant differences and this will depend on the price and on the number of bulbs and the overall construction. This is the matter of taste but if you want more light, go for lanterns with a higher lumen number.
Solar panel quality: This usually implies the speed of converting the sunlight into electricity, or the charging time. There is also a conversion rate, so the higher the better.
Battery capacity: I already mentioned the integrated battery, so this is where the solar energy is stored. This is related to the brightness mentioned earlier, so the larger capacity the better, there is not much to choose here.
Note that this is a dynamic list with best-sellers and it will change depending on what is becoming popular on Amazon. So you might want to bookmark this text and check occasionally. Observe also that these are mostly Amazon Prime items so you can have them shipped for free. You might want to know that we also have a separate list with solar powered garden fountains and also solar-powered Christmas lights.
