What are the benefits of using solar lights?
Solar lights are environmentally friendly, energy-efficient, and require minimal maintenance. They are also easy to install and can be placed in areas where access to electricity is difficult.
Do solar lights work on cloudy days?
Yes, solar lights can still work on cloudy days, but their performance may be slightly reduced compared to sunny days.
How long do solar lights last?
The lifespan of solar lights depends on various factors, including the quality of the components, the type of battery used, and the amount of sunlight they receive. Generally, solar lights can last for 2-5 years or more with proper maintenance.
Can solar lights be used indoors?
Solar lights are designed to be used outdoors where they can receive sunlight to charge the battery. However, some solar lights may work indoors if they are placed near a window, other source of light, or come with an extension cable that allows the panel to be placed outside and the light inside.
