I am really big on saving money on my electrical bill and slowly switching all my outdoor illumination to solar lighting which is free provided there is ample sunlight to turn on these pretty little Solar Powered String Lights by LDesign.
I simply love these as there are 8 light mode combinations from steady on, flash, twinkle and more. I especially love the firefly effect which makes the patio look fabulous at night with 200 little lights. The wonderful thing about them is that they’re waterproof and can be left outdoors all year long and with a press of a button you can change the light mode to create a different lighting effect and easily turn on and off with the push button switches on the back of the solar panel. They’re also perfect for decorating trees and shrubs and the front of the house during the holiday season. (Scroll down to see a photo of a tree wrapped in lights). With 72 feet of lights, the possibilities are endless as to the décor possibilities and the cord although very sturdy is flexible and can be woven and attached to objects really well so they stay in place, especially useful on windy days.
They do need to be placed in full light so they get the maximum charge throughout the day (up about 8 hours) so they will glow from sundown to sunrise; they seem to go on just as the sun is setting and start looking better and better as the night sky gets dark. Provided they are placed in full sunlight they will also work on overcast days sun as the solar energy is stored in the solar module.
I set them up under my patio canopy and attached the solar panel (very large panel that is approximately 4 square inches) using cable ties in a good sun lite location on the top of the canopy creating an amazing effect which looks like a starry night although living in a subdivision it’s rare to get the opportunity to see a brilliant sky full of stars which I love.
The lights also come with a stake that slides into the back of the solar panel and can be inserted deep into the ground for stability.
