This complete system includes two or three powerful mini flag lights which are ideal for illuminating smaller flag poles typically dusk to dawn.
This flag pole light system comprises of three or four very compact light fixtures containing a single, powerful 10W (900 Lumen) LED providing an approximate 120 degree beam spread. This system is designed to typically operate dusk untill dawn each night using three light fixtures, and up to 10 hours using four. For installations in locations that experience harsh winter weather, or low sun levels, a higher powered solar panel may be required. The kit is supplied with the light fixtures, a metal weather proof battery box, a programmable control module, a 140 Watt solar panel, and a 12 Volt rechargeable battery. 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. An on/off switch is supplied, when left in the on position the system will automatically turn on at sunset and illuminates until the programmed amount of time. The MPPT charge controller provides up to 30% more charging power, and advanced light control options. 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 gray. Color of other parts of the system is gray. Color of light output is white.
This solar powered fixture is ideal for lighting up flag poles so there is no longer the need to lower your flag at dusk any more. You can install the light and panel at the bottom of the flag pole, or for better results you can purchase our clamp kits to attach the lamp and/or solar panel to the pole, closer to the flag. Perfect for use where electricity is unavailable or too expensive or difficult to install.

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 to the MPPT charge controller first, followed by the fully charged batteries.
Easy to install. All connections are simply plug & play.
For up lighting from the ground, for sign lighting, we recommend fixing to a small, short wooden post (not included).
Solar panel is supplied with an attached u-shaped bracket for mounting.
Subject to warranty registration, a limited 20 year solar panel warranty applies and a limited 5 year warranty on all other components (excluding batteries).

Please Note: This product is a special order and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.
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.
