Solar-Powered Lighting (No Power Supply Required!)
Take a look through our hand-picked range of solar-powered lighting solutions.
Historically, solar-powered lighting, whilst great for areas with no power supply, used to be problematic as their light-source failed to illuminate a space adequately, instead producing more of a vague glow! Thankfully, solar powered lighting has come a long way and has progressed to the point that we are now pleased to offer products which, not only work well, but are as functional as they are stylish! This category will therefore continue to grow as our suppliers provide more solar-powered options.

Should I be considering the wattage of a product or the lumens for brightness?
If you want a light fixture that gives a good degree of light (bright) then you need to consider the lumens not the watts. Lumens give the measure of the amount of light (brightness) produced by the light bulb, whether the illumination comes from its LED, halogen or incandescent bulb/lamp.
Describing lumen further… It’s the is the term used to describe the total amount of light emitted/given by a light source. Wattage indicates the amount of energy it uses – so these are two different things. Lighting continues to be more energy-efficient and high lumens are being achieved with lower wattages – which is a win win! Of course with solar lighting you are harnessing the suns power and not using electricity
The lumen is the unit of luminous flux (a measure of the number of electric or magnetic field lines passing through a surface in a given amount time) and the measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by a source per unit of time. It sounds complicated and this is probably more than you need to think about but we like to give as much information as we can!
