Solar lights - Lighting sustainably with the power of the sun

The sun - one of the most powerful and cleanest energy sources in the world. Not only is its energy free and available in virtually inexhaustible quantities, but it is also delivered to all of us free of charge, right to our doorsteps. So using solar energy to generate electricity for lighting around the house and garden is an economical and environmentally conscious decision. STEINEL has combined modern solar technology with an economical LED lighting system to create the world's most efficient solar lights: XSolar. These high-end lights stand for energy efficiency at the highest level - and in timelessly elegant designs that enhance any outdoor area.

Automatic light at dusk or motion

Solar lights make you completely independent of the power grid in the lighting of outdoor areas. The lights provide light without any problems even in places where there is no power supply. The installation is accordingly simple and quick, without the need to lay cables and electrical connections. Solar lights save the entire electricity costs for lighting - and this saved energy not only benefits the wallet, but also the environment. STEINEL's solar lights are available either with an infrared sensor that automatically switches the light on when movement is detected or with a twilight switch that automatically starts the permanent lighting when darkness falls. 

Solar lights - FAQ - Frequently asked questions

How does a solar light work?
Each solar light has a solar cell consisting of processed silicon. STEINEL solar lights feature the monocrystalline solar panel, which is highly efficient compared to polycrystalline and amorphous solar panels and can convert solar energy even when it is cloudy.
In the cell, the supply of light and heat (solar energy) releases positive and negative charge carriers, generating electric current (photovoltaics) that, in the case of STEINEL solar lights, charges a lithium-ferrum battery. In some products, this has a lighting reserve of up to 60 days at 20 switching operations per night, 2500 mAh capacity and is temperature-resistant from -20 to +40 degrees.
The battery feeds the STEINEL LED system from the converted solar energy, which can illuminate an area of up to 30sqm with 150 lumens at 1.2W. The highest efficiency is 124 lm/W.
STEINEL solar lights also feature a powerful infrared sensor that switches light only when it's really needed. The 140-degree sensor with Fresnel lens integrates perfectly into the design. 
To make the solar lights even more efficient, STEINEL has built software into the light that sets up a permanent automatic demand analysis and takes care of reserve control.
How long do solar lights burn?

With their high-quality rechargeable batteries and, in particular, the combination of twilight sensors, motion detectors and LED bulbs, solar lights from STEINEL can achieve a lighting reserve of up to 60 days with 20 switching operations per night. Thanks to their weather resistance, they are guaranteed to work, come wind or weather. 

How long do solar lights take to light up?

Before using the solar light for the first time, the battery is completely discharged. To prevent permanently minimized battery performance, the battery must be fully charged before the first use. In principle, solar lights can light up after the first few minutes of converting solar energy, but only for a very short time. The solar lamp should charge all day so that it has enough energy to shine at night.

How to charge solar lights?

Solar lights do not need manual charging. The electric current generated by solar energy is stored in a lithium-ferrum battery during the day, so that it can power the lamp at night when it is in motion. Some lights can be charged in advance via a mini-USB cable. 

Why do solar lights only glow in the dark?

Solar lights can shine at any time of day, just like other lights. However, the light is only of use to the consumer from a certain level of daylight. Thanks to integrated twilight sensors, solar lights from STEINEL start to shine when they are really needed. Above all, solar lights need the time of day so that there is enough electrical energy for the night.

How to dispose solar lights?

Solar lights must not be disposed of with general household and residual waste, as they contain electronic components and rechargeable batteries. Since the consumer is legally obligated to dispose of these parts properly, there are collection points at the municipal level or they can be returned to the dealer.
