Solar balls - will they survive winter? Long-term test

Solar lamps, powered by solar energy, are the perfect solution for everyone who wants to care for the environment. They are ecological, efficient and you can say that they shine for free. However, many people are worried that if the sun is limited, for example during cloudy weather or in winter, the lamps will be very weak or not at all. Will the solar ball withstand winter? Will it shine despite the lack of sun?

In front of our store we have placed a solar ball and watched it work, especially during winter. Here is our report on the use of a solar lamp!

Installation of a solar lamp

In the case of solar lamps , it is not necessary to plan and assemble the power supply. They glow thanks to charging the batteries with the energy obtained from sunlight. In addition, thanks to the use of LED bulbs, you can change their color and match it, for example, to flowers blooming in the garden.

Starting the lamps

In solar balls there is no need to worry about launching balls. Most of them are equipped with a twilight sensor, thanks to which the balls start when they start to dim, and the day can be spent on regeneration, or charging the batteries.


During winter, the air temperature often dropped to -15 ° C, especially at night.How did this affect the ball?The lamp was still on, moreover, the cradle and the lens did not show any cracks caused by low temperatures. It is worth noting that solar balls for external use are waterproof, so rainfall will not affect their operation.

Battery life

Rechargeable batteries installed in the solar solar sphere have survived the period of low winter temperatures. After the arrival of spring it became clear that they were still working, so that the lamp could shine. If, however, it turns out that after the winter the performance of batteries has dropped - you can easily exchange them for new ones. They are widely available, including in supermarkets, and their cost varies within a few or a dozen zlotys.


In the summer, when the nights are short, and the days are long and often very sunny, the time of charging solar lamps and the quality of light emitted by them at night is very satisfactory. However, in the winter, with the lengthening of the night and the shortening of the day and limited sunlight, there may be a problem with the speed of chargingsolar balls. An additional difficulty is the frequent snowfalls and the appearance of dirt that obscure part of the light - we admit that we were worried about it the most ..

However, despite such difficulties, after the sunset the lamps were still shining. How is this possible? Solar balls are equipped with capacious rechargeable batteries and energy-saving LED systems.
