This solar lighting system is ideal for places with no mains electricity such as outhouses, sheds, garages, farms, stables, as well as for camping, travel and any outdoor activities (e.g. a for a yurt). The system is fully independent from the grid / AC power source and works purely based on sunlight energy.
During the daytime, the 25W solar panel charges a 12V battery inside the control unit, which then provides power to the 4 x 5W 12V LED lights connected via front sockets on the control unit. In addition, there is a standard 5V USB socket for charging mobile phones and USB compatible devices (adaptors for USB-compatible mobile phones are included).
The control unit has a built-in 12Ah battery with an automatic solar charge controller to manage the charging process and prevent overcharging. The 25W solar panel is capable of charging the battery to full with only 4-5 hours of bright sunlight (longer in cloudy weather), and the battery can provide enough energy to power 4 LED lights continuously for 6-7 hours, or twice as long if only two LED lights are connected.
The system is very convenient to use and install: the solar panel comes with 10m of cable (more than enough for most applications), and each LED light comes with a 5m cable with an On/Off switch. All cables come with connectors for a quick “plug and play” installation.
