This complete system includes two LED light bulbs with wired bulb holders. Choice of two 3W (300 lumen) or two 7W (700 lumen) LED bulbs. Ideal for retro-fitting existing outdoor electric lights to solar.
This system consists of two Edison style bulb holders that will accept 3W LED light bulbs (providing approx. 300 lumen) or 7W LED light bulbs offering approx. 700 lumen. The bulb holders can be installed within a light fixture such as a post light, wall light or other style lamps. Supplied as standard using two 3W bulbs, the system is designed to typically illuminate dusk to dawm each night, and up to 8 hours using two 7W bulbs. If dusk to dawn illumination is required for two 7W bulbs, or if the system will be installed in a location that experiences harsh winter weather conditions, a higher powered solar panel and larger capacity batteries will be required. The kit is supplied with the light bulbs and bulb holders, a metal battery box, a programmable PWM charge controller, a 45 Watt solar panel, and two 12 volt rechargeable batteries. A MPPT charge controller can be purchased as an optional upgrade. The MPPT charge controller increases charging efficiency by up to 30% and offers advanced light control options including dual timing. The lockable battery box is supplied with an on/off switch and outlets for the solar panel and light fittings to plug in to. When the system is in the on position the light will come on automatically at sunset and will stay illuminated until the set amount of time. The charge controller can be set in numerous options ranging from dusk till dawn, or the light staying on for a set amount of hours after sunset (from 1 to 12 hours). The solar panel and light fittings are supplied with several feet of cable, so they can be mounted away from the battery box if needed. The LED light bulb typically last for up to 20 years so there are no bulb changes. Color of most parts of the system is gray. Color of light output is white or warm white.
Our solar LED light bulb conversion kit is perfect for sites where electricity is no longer available or where it would be too difficult or too costly to install an electric supply. They are also suitable for retro-fit applications where electrically powered fixtures need replacing.
Manufactured in an ISO9001:2008 'Quality Assured' facility.
Supplied as standard, the system will illuminate dusk to dawn using two 3W bulbs, and up to 8 hours using two 7W bulbs.

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.
