During the day, the solar panels will convert sunlight into electricity and recharge the included rechargeable battery. In the evening, the Solar Powered Lamp will turn on automatically. Provides up to eight hours of light when batteries are fully charged (the hours of light per charge depends on your geographical location, weather conditions and seasonal lighting availability).
Although the Ni-Cd rechargeable battery included with every unit is designed to provide years of reliable use, most rechargeable batteries do begin to deplete after cold winters. When this happens, the battery can be easily replaced with newer models available anywhere batteries are sold. It is suggested Ni-Cd batteries are replaced once every 12 months to ensure constant performance.
