Have you ever been disappointed by your solar fairy lights because they failed to perform as you wanted at your party? Of course, solar fairy lights are supposed to bring all the brightness and fun to complete the feeling of joy and excitement at your party. If they fail to do these things, then something might be wrong. Perhaps the light you bought did not come with the right solar cell and battery combination, or they were not adequately built to serve you as supposed. 

Suppose you are planning for a birthday party, Christmas party, or any other type of party. In that case, solar fairy lights can offer fantastic values for improving the party’s fun and general atmosphere. Many solar fairy lighting options are available at stores and markets over the country. To get a perfect choice that will not disappoint you, you must learn a few things about the light and how it works. This article will teach you all you need to know about solar fairy lights. 

How do Solar Fairy Lights Work? 

The Battery and Solar Panel Combination 

The solar panel functions to transform energy for charging the battery. Once the battery has gotten enough charge, it will transfer power to the solar fairy lights. This makes the system completely electricity-free. You can turn the lights on manually when you need them or allow the inbuilt sensor to turn them on automatically every evening. 

If your solar fairy lights fail to function as you want them to, it is probably because the solar panel is too small to power the fairy lights battery efficiently. If this is the case, the board will be unable to transform enough energy to recharge the battery. On the other hand, if the panel is too big and the battery is too small, there are fewer chances that it will encounter problems when recharging the battery. However, the solar fairy lights might not illuminate as long as supposed. 

To fix this issue, you must consider the solar panel and battery before buying them. Ensure to purchase the right combination of battery and panel to deliver the results you want. Your panel should not be less than 9.5 × 6.4cm when you want to buy smaller solar fairy lights with 60 to 100 LEDs and 8 × 12cm when going for larger lights with 200 to 280 LEDs. 

The Lights Controller 

Another vital component of the solar fairy lights system is the light controller. Your choice of lights controller can contribute significantly to how well the system will function. You can either choose a controller built into the solar panel or created as a separate unit. Whichever option you choose, make sure that it is fully sealed and free from water. 

Solar Fairy Light LEDs 

The unique thing about LEDs is that they do not consume as much energy as incandescent bulbs and other lighting options. They also light differently from these other light options. LED lights offer beautiful ambient glow, such that it creates the perfect atmosphere for any outdoor occasion, including weddings, camping, parties, Christmas, etc. They are the ideal choice for solar lighting technology. So, always make sure to go with LED bulbs when installing your solar fairy lights.
