This light bulb conversion kit includes a bulb holder that can accept a choice of LED light bulb. This system can operate from dusk to dawn or from dusk for a chosen amount of hours each night. Choice of LED bulb available.
This economical system comprises of an Edison style bulb holder that will accept a choice of LED light bulb. We offer the system with a 7W LED light bulb offering around 700 lumen. The bulb holder would normally be installed within a light fixture such as a post light, wall light or other fixture. This system is designed to typically operate for up to 14 hours each night. The kit is supplied with the light bulb and bulb holder, a weather proof battery box, a programmable charge controller, a 45 Watt solar panel, and two 12 Volt rechargeable batteries. An MPPT charge controller can be purchased as an optional upgrade. The MPPT charge controller increase the charging efficiency by up to 30% and provides advanced light controls such as dual timer options. The battery box is supplied with outlets for the solar panel and light fixtures to plug in to. When the system is connected the light will come on automatically at sunset and will stay illuminated until the set amount of time. The PWM 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 bulb holder 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 are 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.

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.
