This complete system includes three powerful mini light bars which are ideal for illuminating smaller signs typically dusk to dawn. An additional mini light bar fixture is available as an option. Supplied with all necessary components including solar panel, batteries, and charge controller.
This light system consists of three or four compact mini light bars containing white, super bright LEDs providing an approximate 120 degree beam spread. This system is designed to typically operate dusk to dawn using three lamps, and up to 11 hours using four. The kit is supplied with the light fixtures, a metal battery box, a MPPT charge controller, a 70 Watt solar panel, and two 12 Volt rechargeable batteries. For installations in locations that experience harsh winter weather, or low sun levels, a higher powered solar panel and/or an MPPT charge controller may be required. The battery box can be locked with a padlock (not supplied), and is fitted with outlets for the lamps and solar panel to easily connect to. When the system is connected, the lights will automatically turn on at sunset and illuminates until the programmed amount of time. The programmable charge controller can be set to illuminate for a selected number of hours after sunset (from 1 to 12 hours) or it can be set to run from dusk until dawn. The solar panel and light fixtures are supplied with several feet of cable so that they can be installed a distance away from the battery box if required. Color of light fixture is white and silver. Color of other parts of the system is gray. Color of light output is white.
Perfect for use where electricity is unavailable or where it is too expensive to install or for sites where an environmentally friendly solution to sign lighting is required. This system can also be used for numerous types of signs, notice boards, information kiosks, site boards, directional signs and traditional signage.

The 70W solar panel dimensions approx. 32.35" x 26.22" x 1.5" (89.3cm x 66.8cm x 3.5cm) LxWxD.
Supplied with a MPPT charge controller which automatically controls the solar panel power, battery charging and lighting function and operation.
Ultra fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT).
The MPPT charge controller is typically 30% more efficient than standard PWM controllers and 10% more efficient to most other MPPT controllers.
Additional efficiency for cloudy weather and during times of reduced sun radiation.
This controller features the very latest smart technology.

Please note: Upon installation and power-up the controller goes into a 7 day evaluation mode where smart monitoring and configurations commence. Additional evaluation with self-managing adjustments may continue for up to 7 more days. This is all part of the smart feature that enables this intelligent controller to understand its use, the application, the surrounding environment and the current conditions. During this time some of its programmed features may differ temporarily. This is a perfectly normal process and must be accepted during that time. During this time the controller will adjust to the current condition and charge status of the batteries. It is therefore recommended that all batteries are 100% fully charged before connection using an appropriate battery charger. This may significantly reduce the evaluation mode time of 7+7 days to much less. The solar panel(s) should be connected charge controller first, followed by the fully charged batteries.
Easy to install. All connections are simply plug & play.
The light is mounted using the supplied adhesive backing.
An optional brack can be purchased to mount the battery box and solar panel to a pole, product number FL07.
Subject to warranty registration, a limited 20 year solar panel warranty applies and a limited 5 year warranty on all other components (excluding batteries). Battery warranty (if applicable) is with the battery manufacturer.* Warranty registration is required (after purchase), otherwise a standard 30 day limited warranty will apply. After making your purchase, go to www.solarilluminations.com/registration to register your warranty.
Additionally, unlimited, lifetime technical support is available for all warranty registrations.
The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
