Are you planning to get a solar post lamp but have no idea what is the most suitable type for your project? Well, ADN understands you, that’s why we are here to guide you. In this blog, we will provide more in-depth information on materials, parameter design, and various styles of solar-led pole lights. We hope this article will help customers like you who want to buy solar pole lights for engineering projects.

Four Main Components of the Solar Post Lamps

Genefour accessories are determiningrmining the quality of the solar pole lantern. It mainly includes the shell, solar panel, battery, and controller.

The Solar Post Lamps Shells

For solar pole headlights, Housing/shell is a crucial factor in determining whether the solar pole headlights are prominent. Usually, the housing is made from die-cast aluminum, iron, and ABS plastic material. The cost of these three materials decreases in turn. Among the three materials, die-casting aluminum is the most expensive. Aside from the raw material aluminum cost, its production process also involves molding, making it more expensive. Its tooling cost is also one of the reasons why it costs much more than other housing. Typically, its tooling costs tens of thousands of dollars. Due to the good appearance of aluminum die-casting shells, solar lights with this kind of shell are widely used in government projects. 

On the other hand, ABS plastic costs lower than aluminum casting, making it ideal for household solar lamps. Also, most solar pole headlights sold on retail platforms such as Amazon have a plastic casing.

Solar Light Pole

Mostly, solar posts and pole lights are installed on the poles. The height of these light poles is not too high, it’s just within 4 meters. Also, the light pole has a specific decorative design, and together with the lamps, it embellishes the surrounding environment. But before purchasing a light pole, you need to observe the following light pole parameters more strictly:

  • Pole height: Dozens of cm to 4M. If the pole’s height is too high, it is for road lighting application.
  • Material: Iron, Aluminum Sheet Metal, Die Cast Aluminum
  • Thickness:1.5mm to 2.2mm 
  • Section size: If round, the diameter is generally 40/60/60/78/89mm.
  • Surface treatment: If it is made of iron, so it is usually hot-dip galvanized or cold-galvanized. The life of hot-dip galvanizing can generally be more than ten years, and the corrosion resistance is high. However, if it is cold galvanized, the iron usually begins to rust in about five years. On the other hand, aluminum is generally powder-coasting.

Some Advice When Choosing Solar Posts Lights

  1. Since appearance is a crucial factor affecting the popularity of solar-led post lights, always check the casing for flaws and scratches. Particularly, the surface treatment of the die-cast aluminum shell must meet the surface treatment standards for the outdoor lamps’ shells.
  2. If you choose home-type solar post lights, expect that the brightness is not bright. At most, you can only distinguish the outline of the objects surrounding you, which can still help you walk or drive.
  3. If you will use solar post light for household purposes, it is recommended to use a plastic casing. For household solar lamps, the metal casing can account for hefty material costs and transportation costs, so we do not recommend it. On the other hand, the plastic shell is also guaranteed to be firm and waterproof. Just be careful on selecting it because after spraying it with paint, it’s hard to tell if it is metal or plastic on the outside.
  4. All solar lights are easy to install. You can install solar light in just one minute. As long as the solar light is installed in a place with sufficient sunlight, the solar light can work normally. (Click here to know how to install solar street lights).
  5. Due to aesthetic considerations, many government projects do not allow solar panels to be large. The main reason is it will significantly limit the lighting time and brightness of the solar light. So if you use solar light for a government project, always specify its lumen value, dimming mode, and lighting time.
  6. For all outdoor solar led lights, waterproof performance is not a problem. Generally, the actual IP level of all solar lights is IP65. Do not be swayed by some products marked with IP66 and IP67. They are usually not true. IP65 means the light fixture can work normally on rainy days. IP66 and IP67 mean that the lamp can work underwater for some time.

Types of Solar Post Lamps Review

Because we are a solar light manufacturer, we will also analyze various styles of solar post lights from a more professional perspective. Aside from listing the indicators determining the quality of solar energy (lighting time, brightness, and lighting range), we will also list all the parameters of its key materials (solar panels, batteries, and LEDs).

Check out these two articles to better understand solar lamp parameters: Solar Lights Parameter, and Solar Lights Design/Proposal.

  • Application advice: The main advantage of this lamp is its design and style. Its ‘beating of flames’ lighting effects can usually attract many buyers. But since it has a low price, it’s safe to assume that it also has low accessories. The rule of thumb is, do not expect that this lamp is ideal for lighting when it is low in parameters. Another thing to keep in mind is the lifespan of this lamp. It may work in the first year, but it might not function well in the next few years. But, if you are only looking for a great decoration, you can surely buy a few to achieve that festive atmosphere in your garden.
