What Are the Precautions for Choosing Solar Street Lights?
With people's awareness of environmental protection increasing, solar energy is often used in road lighting as a renewable resource, which is environmentally friendly and energy-saving. In terms of working principles, solar street lights charge the battery by solar panels during the day and power the LED light source through the battery when lighting is needed at night. There is no additional cost during the entire installation and use process, and no expensive power supply line is required. Therefore, it is accessible to any environment and install anywhere.
The service life of solar street lights is affected by factors such as LED light sources, battery panels, and controllers. When choosing solar street lights, you need to consider these aspects.
Let's take KY-Hongyan solar garden light as an example.
1. Batwing lens greatly improve the lighting effect
KY-Hongyan solar garden light adopts light source chip, and the light output, luminous efficiency, and service life have reached international standards. The patented lens forms a bat-wing light distribution to achieve the best uniform illuminance and greatly improve the lighting effect. The hue will change with different seasons, from 3000K to 5700K, you could choose the cold or warm light to meet the lighting needs of different environments.
2. High-efficiency polycrystalline solar panels
The materials for our Hongyan solar road light are strictly selected. After many tests and sorting, we will get qualified cells. A special lamination process is adopted to ensure the adhesive strength of EVA, tempered glass, and backplane. Therefore, the solar panel has good performance, long service life, and high power generation efficiency.
3. Detachable intelligent controller
Hongyan solar garden lights use plug-in connectors to simplify connection procedures between components, making installation, maintenance, and replacement more convenient.
The intelligent controller can control the lighting time, charging, and load power. And it has the functions of morning light and four-time adjustment, without manual operation. Compared with ordinary controllers, it can extend the lighting time by 90%.
4. With the flexible design, solar panels can be adjusted in multiple angles
Taking into account the regional differences and the different lighting conditions, Hongyan proceeded from the details and designed a rotatable solar panel to achieve multi-angle adjustment of the solar panel to adapt to the lighting environment of different regions. At the same time, a movable reinforcement arm is designed on the top of the light pole, which achieves the purpose of fixing the battery panel, and greatly improves the power generation efficiency.
5. Square lithium iron phosphate battery: safe and long service life
There are also many types of solar street light batteries. Lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries, gel batteries, lithium iron phosphate batteries, etc. are more common on the market. The lead-acid battery has stable voltage and a low price. The disadvantage is that it is too heavy and focuses too much on the large capacity, and its service life is short. It is troublesome to maintain; the using temperature of the gel battery ranges from 40 degrees below zero to 65 degrees above zero, which is suitable for use in northern areas. The service life is twice as long as that of ordinary batteries, but the price is slightly higher, which is the biggest problem. Lithium batteries are small and thin, with fast charging, long service life, and many cycles, but the stability is currently not good, and the temperature range is not as large as that of lead-acid batteries and it is also expensive. Lithium iron phosphate batteries are more expensive. But their lifespans are very long, and they can be recycled many times. They can be used for up to 10 years and have the largest temperature range.
Hongyan solar garden light uses a square lithium iron phosphate battery. This solar street light with panel and battery has a cycle life of more than 1000 times and is high-temperature resistance, large capacity, and green environmental protection, which is non-toxic, non-polluting, safe to use, and has no hazards of fire and explosion.
Solar street lights are exposed to the outside all year round and are exposed to wind, rain, or even rain and snow. Such environments have great impacts on solar street lights, which can easily cause water ingress. Hongyan solar garden lights have a protection level of IP65 and are waterproof in all directions.
6. Ingenious design and unique shape
Hongyan solar garden lights are shaped like wild geese returning from the south, providing a good lighting environment for the picturesque garden, thus enriching the individuality and functions of the outdoor space. With a unique shape, it is energy-saving and environmentally friendly, kind, and natural. And these perfectly embody the concept of contemporary garden green lighting.

In 2008, SOKOYO Solar Lighting Co., Ltd. has made clear its company positioning that solar street light is the sole product at the beginning of its establishment 2008. SOKOYO successively invested more than 70 million yuan to build five 80,000 square meters production bases including solar panels, LEDs, light poles, lamps, and lithium batteries. In addition, SOKOYO has independently developed a solar street light control system and realized the complete self-production of solar street light components, with an annual production capacity of 500 million yuan. In the domestic market, it mainly cooperates with large state-owned enterprises, double A-qualified lighting, and listed lighting companies; in foreign markets, its products are mainly sold to countries in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. With the original intention of upholding quality and self-discipline with the highest requirements, the cumulative number of cooperative customers has exceeded 3,000.
